On or around Gaura Purnima 2022 all of ISKCON will ecstatically celebrate together the Grand Opening of the magnificent Temple of the Vedic Planetarium at the World Headquarters of ISKCON in Sridham Mayapur on its 50th Anniversary, and our beloved Mayapur Deities will at last be moved into Their long-awaited new home.
After twelve years of planning, execution and fundraising mixed with the blood, sweat and tears of many, we will finally make this combined offering to Srila Prabhupada, increasing his glory and victory further throughout the universe.
This year, we celebrate Gaur Purnima with that objective embedded in our hearts. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s appearance, while having many purposes, has at its core the deliverance of all souls through Harinama sankirtana. The prayers of Sri Advaita Acharya were specifically for the Lord to descend for this purpose. The TOVP will also have multiple purposes, but foremost it will be the grandest kirtan hall in the world, capable of holding 10,000 devotees at any one time. The power of the Nama Avatar will assuredly be felt by all who visit the TOVP, and they will one and all leave for other parts of the world inspired with transcendental bliss to deliver more fallen souls to the Lord’s lotus feet.
During this time of the year the TOVP Team calls on all devotees to give their financial assistance and participate in this once-in-many-lifetimes opportunity to help manifest the temple. We encourage those who haven’t yet donated to please do so. If you have an outstanding balance on your pledge, please pay it off or make an extra-large payment. If you’ve already given, search your heart and consider giving again. We are counting on one and all to do their part, large or small, towards this purpose, and we gratefully acknowledge everyone for their help.
Most recently we launched the Pillars of Devotion Campaign to offer donors the opportunity to sponsor one of the 108 pillars inside the temple. If you feel so inspired, please take advantage of this seva opportunity during Gaura Purnima time. There are also the Mahaprabhu and Guru Parampara bricks, and many other levels of offering.
