It is with great delight , we are happy to announce that for the welfare of whole world and to spread the Sankirtan far and wide, we are planning to install a life size Astadhatu Vigraha of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu (in sitting posture) at Gambira.
Gambira is the place where Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu had spent his final years during His earthly lila, is one of the most important holy site for Gaudiya Vaisnavas. With the generous contribution and prayers extended by well wishers and kind hearted devotees in response to our International appeal for Gambira Renovation, we had commenced the renovation work at Gambira. The temple premises have been painted and residential devotees accommodation has been renovated. The necessary kitchen utensils have been purchased.
At this juncture, we are planning to install a life size Astadhatu murti of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu in sitting posture, to benedict the whole world.
A wonderful opportunity to directly take part in the casting of the deity of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu to enhance our spiritual endeavours, is now available.
Directed by ancient sastras, expert craftsmen (sthapatis) will use a total of 300 kg. of eight auspicious metals to cast the form of the most munificent Lord, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. You can sponsor any levels you desire and as many Kilograms as you wish. A plaque will be placed in the temple with the name of the sponsors.
Sponsorship Levels Seva amount
1 kg $ 50
3 kg $ 200
8 kg $ 300
16kg $ 600
33kg $ 1200
It is said in Shastra that “Any person within this world who is engaged in the worship of Vishnu or His pure Devotee can very easily achieve the ever blissful kingdom of God, known as Vaikunthaloka”.
This is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to take part in this spiritually uplifting seva, and at the same time directly help in restoring the beautiful holy site of Gambira for the pleasure of Srila Prabhupada and Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
