THE 31 DRESSES CAMPAIGN OPPORTUNITY TO DRESS RADHA MADHAVA, PANCHA TATTVA, NRSIMHADEVA AND THE SAMPRADAYA ACHARYAS

In preparation for the 3-month long TOVP Grand Opening Festival in the Fall of 2024 when Sri Sri Radha Madhava, Sri Pancha Tattva and Sri Nrsimhadeva will be relocated onto Their new altar along with the fifteen new sampradaya acharya murtis, the TOVP Deity Department is already planning to offer beautiful and ornate deity outfits to all the deities on each 3rd day of this historic occasion.

The 31 Dresses Campaign offers ISKCON temples, individuals or groups of individuals a unique sponsorship opportunity to be part of this historic opening event and seva opportunity to our beloved Mayapur Deities through the ecstatic process of dress-making and offering, by either arranging for the design and sewing of the outfits for all the deities, or by providing the funds for us to make them.

General Information

TEAM

A team of dedicated devotees is helping each yatra in their designing and offering of outfits for this wonderful and unique offering to Their Lordships during the upcoming Grand Opening Ceremony of the TOVP in 2024. They will ensure the designs aren’t duplicated and check for quality as required in the service of the Lord.

CONFIRMATION

Your sponsorship is taken in when you register for the seva directly with Braja Vilasa or through the website signup form. Then we will communicate with you with confirmation to begin preparations for the outfits. First, you will need to submit your design to our team as soon as possible for our review, and after receiving final approval can move forward with production.

COMMUNICATION

Communicate with our team on your progress with the outfits if you are making them/our team will communicate with you if we are making the outfits. Throughout the process, our team will help you as required.

FAQ

    Turban cloth, Mukut pieces, crowns and jewelry.

    Yes, provided good quality paint is used on the fabric.
  • Can a glue gun be used?
