Iskcon Loses 26 2nd Avenue

Hare Krishna, Ekendra and Akruranatha prabhus.

Thank you for your posts and inquiries. I apologize for my tardy response. Unfortunately, I am told by our web master that PayPal will not allow us to add “other” to the list of possible donations (without a fee, that is- it might be worth it though; time will tell). In lieu of that, one could click on “one time donation” each month. Or, to have it done automatically so as not to worry about it each month, one could authorize his or her bank to issue a monthly automated check payment, electronic fund transfer or one could simply write a check each month and mail it themselves. Devotees interested in any of these options can write me at

Our long term vision for 26 2nd Avenue is to turn it into a proper museum honoring Srila Prabhupada and what he accomplished around the world. We have in mind to return the space to what it originally looked like when Srila Prabhupada was there and to house significant photos, articles and items of relevance. At present we are still renting the space.

Although 2nd Avenue is still being utilized, the space is too small for the Manhattan community at this point. The bulk of the programs happening are at the Bhakti Center, a cultural center meeting with promising success in terms of outreach as well as catering to the needs of the devotees. While some local devotees are supporting 2nd Avenue specifically, financial needs in New York run across not only 2nd Avenue and the Bhakti Center, but also the local bramacari ashram (14 bramacaris), the Brooklyn temple, a temple in Queens and two temples in nearby New Jersey (Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens are 3 of the 5 boroughs that comprise New York City).

We wouldn’t ask for financial support to fund any of the many local New York temples. We feel however, that Matchless Gifts is of worldwide concern.

Your servant,
Yadunath das
