For your transcendental viewing pleasure, Sadbhuja Das and team have put together a video documenting the present state of the temple construction. In it you will not only be able to see live progress, but also an in depth explanation of every part of the project. This is just phase one that we are showing you and phase two will be documented as well. So please stay tuned…
A question that frequently gets asked here at the TOVP is if Sri Sri Radha Madhava and Pancha Tattva are going to be moved into the new temple. Yes, They will be. We are also going to have another altar made for the disciplic succession. Lord Nrsimhadeva will have His own separate room under the right dome and Sri Sri Radha Madhava and Pancha Tattva will be under the center (main) dome. The left dome is going to be a theater where seminars and projections can be displayed.
Since the deities are moving into the new temple, ideas about what to do with the existing temple are being discussed. One is that we use it as a preaching center, but nothing is set in stone. Whatever is decided will be the best use of such a transcendental space.
On another note; the weather is now starting to cool off! Kartik has officially begun and this means that Gaura Purnima is just around the corner. An abundance of devotees have started arriving for the winter season and the Dham is full of transcendental buzz. It is extremely inspiring to see so many people taking a holy pilgrimage to Mayapur!
