Dear Devotees and Friends of the TOVP,
Hare Krishna! Please accept our obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
First, thank you to all the devotees who have supported our efforts over the years. We are forever and eternally indebted to you.
The year 2022 comes to a close, opening the door to the beginnings of another year of service and surrender in 2023, and opportunities to bring Krishna into the lives of the conditioned souls. Underlying all our intense efforts to finance and build the TOVP is this focused intention to bring Krishna consciousness to the world at large. And at the foundation of this motivation is the desire and order of His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada.
“I have named this temple Sri Mayapur Candrodaya Mandir, the Rising Moon of Mayapur. Now make it rise, bigger and bigger until it becomes the full moon. And this moonshine will be spread all over the world. All over India they will come to see. From all over the world they will come.”
Letter to Ramesvara, 25 October, 1974
2023 will be a crucial year in our progress. It will be highlighted by the opening of the completed Nrsimhadeva Wing in October. All of our energy and resources are totally engaged for that purpose. This will be the precursor to the Grand Opening of the TOVP scheduled for a three-month-long festival from December, 2024 till Gaura Purnima, 2025. At that time our beloved Mayapur Deities, along with fifteen new parampara acharya murtis will be relocated into Their long-awaited new home.
It is our heartfelt prayer at the lotus feet of all the Vaishnavas at the onset of the new year that you will make an increased resolve to further support this endeavor, whether you have given to the TOVP or not. Our unique position as followers of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu makes fundraising outside ISKCON difficult and unproductive. Thus, we must continue to beg at your feet for financial support again and again.
Please go to the Give To Nrsimha Campaign page and sponsor a Nrsimha Brick or one of several unique new options to help complete the Nrsimhadeva Wing. These are pledge-based seva opportunities that do not require full payment immediately. Your sponsorship means a lot us and will go a long way towards opening the Nrsimha Hall.
May the new year bring you and your family happiness in the service of Guru and Gauranga, and the achievement of love of God.
Braja Vilasa das
