TOVP Pujari Room Grand Opening & Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur Appearance Day Celebration (Album of photos)
Eka adbhuta mandir ei hoibe prakasa
gaurangera nitya seva hoibe vikas
On the Auspicious Occasion of the 146th anniversary of the appearance of His Divine Grace Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur and in preparation for the relocation of our beloved world Deities into Their new home, the Pujari Floor is inaugurated with great pomp and celebration.
This will be the largest pujari space of its kind in the world at a size of 2.5 acres, with over 20 dedicated rooms for Deity Seva designed under the scrutiny and guidance of Their Graces Jananivas and Pankajanghri Prabhu’s, ISKCON Mayapur’s Head Pujaris.
Srila Prabhupada said, “Mayapur is my place of worship.” Here he established the Mayapur Chandrodaya Mandir to facilitate that worship, eventually to a scale that would influence the entire world through the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium. Indeed, the TOVP is the long-awaited new home for Their Lordships Sri Sri Radha Madhava, Sri Pancha Tattva and Sri Nrsimhadeva, and this Pujari Floor opening ceremony heralds the relocation to their new home in 2022. Here They will be worshiped in the most impeccable and grandiose manner for thousands of years to come, offering Their merciful darshan to devotees and pilgrims from every corner of the world.
Small Radha Madhava travels into each room, on a flower chariot, accompanied by Gurukula boys. We got the chance to receive Them in Room 13- Madhura Pakshala, inaugurated by Lokanath Swami Maharaja where all the sweets will be prepared for the deities. Aramis, mantras, flowers and pure devotees consecrate each room.
