Changing the design of the TVP: Reply to Hari-sauri

Surely if the basic “US Capitol” design remains but as many ‘Indian/Vedic elements’ are slotted in as possible, then all parties could be happy.

Wages for Sages

Dear Praghosa prabhu

Thanks for your personalised response.

I agree with your implication- -that devotees asking for overtime etc does appear to be crossing the line and missing the point.

Regarding the use of the word ’sage’, well its nice to see all serious devotees as such, although I must add that an online dictionary definition does not include younger devotees:

a person, esp. an old man, regarded as being very wise
very wise or knowledgeable, esp. as the result of age or experience

Personally I find the title for this article, “wages for sages” a little misleading and could affect devotees’ assessment of this subject matter. Why include the word ’sages’? Just because it rhymes? To my understand the word ’sage’ implies the renounced order: simple life, hermit, sannyas etc. Such people are not suitable for ‘wages’. However, Temple Presidents, Vice Presidents, pot-washers and so forth are generally a different type of devotee who have homes, families and a little integrity to maintain.

I am on an ISKCON ’salary/ DM’. My wife also works but outside of ISKCON. Guess what, even though she is new to the country and works less hours than me, still she earns more.

I am neither a sage or someone who lives the life of luxury, simply a devotee who has taken an opportunity so I can do my best for Srila Prabhupada’s movement but also pay for my ‘bread and butter’.

Hare Krishna Devotee as one of the Hindu representatives to meet the Pope

This was a good interfaith/ PR move for ISKCON.

As the Pope assumingly eats meat, it is naturally difficult for some devotees to understand how he can be truly ‘holy’. Fair point, but for one reason or another, perhaps due to previous lives, the Pope is the leader of hundreds of millions of Catholics around the world. This was good PR and this kind of thing is in ISKCON’s interests.

Latest 3D Animation Model of the Vedic Planetarium Temple

Akruranatha prabhu has made alot of very relevant points and I agree with many of them. Therefore, there is no need for them to be repeated. One factor however is really worth enthasising- - the Mayapur Project has to realistically consider its physical, social and environmental impact on surrouding villages, the town of Navadvip and the river. What of security?

That said, the presentation, namely the computer graphics and the overall design itself is impressive. Its a shame that the computer program does not seem to be able to have rickshaw wallas, ISKCON devotees and sadhus built into its system! Instead we see characters that look like they would be more at home in New York! Never mind.

The dome idea is fine. It is true that there are many domed structures in western cities, whether they are in Washingon, London or Paris or Moscow, but that in itself is not a disqualification because they were built with great care and precision. Another good thing about the dome is that it fits in with the Planetarium image.

I am curious about the internal design of the building and how it will become a Planetarium in the real sense.

I am looking forward to seeing more…
