My name is Braja Vilasa das, Director of Development and Fundraising for the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium (TOVP). On behalf of the whole TOVP team, I gratefully acknowledge your desire to kindly contribute to the project, and welcome you to the family of TOVP supporters.
At the TOVP, your donation means a lot to us, and it certainly means a lot to Lord Krishna and Srila Prabhupada. We are thankful from the bottom of our hearts to one and all who contribute to this project. It is our solemn promise that every penny will be used for the construction of this wonderful Temple.
Phase One of the project, building the superstructure, was funded by a very generous donation by our lead donor and project Chairman, Ambarisha Prabhu, and is now complete. Your donation will directly fund Phase Two of the temple construction. Phase Two involves interior and exterior finishing work in preparation for the grand installation of the Deities of Sri Panca Tattva, Sri Sri Radha Madhava, the Guru Parampara, and Lord Nrsimhadeva and is slated for completion by Gaur Purnima 2023, also the 50th Anniversary of the Mayapur project.
To achieve the completion of Phase Two we have hired a world class Project Management Company (PMC), Cushman and Wakefield, to assist us. With their help we will make timely, strategic and budgeted progress towards our goal.
The financial needs for completion are immense, with an estimated $50 million budgeted for that purpose. The next few years leading to the Grand Opening have thus been named the TOVP MISSION 22 MARATHON. There are many donation options available on the website Seva Opportunities page and I hope you will do all you can to help achieve our common goal. Together we can make Srila Prabhupada’s dream a reality. Your devotion is our inspiration. Thank you again for your support and service.
