As we now enter the year 2018, we are fast approaching what will be perhaps the most momentous and important occasion in ISKCON’s history thus far; the completion of the Chakra installations onto the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium.
This event not only represents the culmination of over eight years of cooperative effort on the parts of thousands of ISKCON devotees from around the world, but heralds the beginning of a new and exciting phase towards the completion of the TOVP. It is truly another milestone of achievement that we can all be proud of, and we are certain Srila Prabhupada is smiling upon us.
The three month marathon being organized by Sadbhuja prabhu in preparation for the Chakra installations continues unabated. The Nrsimhadeva Dome Kalash is almost complete and the Main Dome Kalash is fast approaching completion. Between the Kalash mounting, painting and fastening the dome ribs and stars, assembling both Chakras and working on the Chatris, all the transcendental sevaites are working around the clock to bring the marathon to its completion by February 7th for the Grand Installation Ceremony of the Chakras onto Sri Sri Radha Madhava’s and Lord Nrsimhadeva’s Domes.
Devotees are also encouraged to take advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime seva opportunity to sponsor the abhisheka of one or both Chakras. Many devotees have already done so and we are fast approaching our goal to get 1008 sponsors for each abhisheka. Don’t miss this opportunity. Go to this link to find out how you can sponsor an abhisheka:
Here are the current statistics for the Chakra abhishekas:

Radha Madhava Chakra – 506 sponsors
