TOVP Pujari Room Opening (Album of photos)
Gopi Gita: The streets are lined with rangoli and marigold petals. Verandas and archways are decorated. Radhanath Maharaj, Gopal Krishna Maharaj and others speak about Srila Prabhupada’s dear desire 50 years ago to have this temple built.. how it will magnify Lord Caitanya’s blessings all around the world. Wealthy families set up their inner dressing rooms before they move into a house. Similarly, the personal dressing rooms and kitchen of the Deities is getting set up before They move in 2022 – TOVP opening date.
Each of the 72 rooms has a special function. Small Radha Madhava travel into each room, on a flower chariot, accompanied by Gurukula boys. We got the chance to receive Them in Room 7 – Smti Radharani’s personal kitchen. Aratis, mantras, flowers and pure devotees consecrate each room. Jayapataka Swami travels in front of us with a full security team. Devotees explain the significance of the room. And onwards to the next one. It was such a beautiful ceremony.
Even though the organizers, Brajavilas prabhu, Svaha Mataji and others are so busy, they treat me like a little sister, checking in on how we’re doing and if there’s anything we need. Incredible love is shown even during stressful times. How grateful I feel to be here during this momentous occasion and to learn so much from these expert organizers.
