On April 16th, to begin the celebration of Jayapataka Maharaja’s auspicious 70th Vyasa Puja celebration, thousands of his disciples and well-wishers, gathering at the TOVP office, looked on as Maharaja officially inaugurated the TOVP Daily Victory Flag raising tradition.
Due to Jayapataka Maharaja’s health issues he was unable to attend the Chakra installation ceremony in February 2018, nor inaugurate the Victory Flag tradition shortly thereafter. The TOVP management thought it befitting to officially inaugurate the flag hoisting at his 70th Vyasa Puja ceremony this year, 2019, giving him the due honor of officiating the event and personifying the very meaning of the name Srila Prabhupada awarded him, Jayapataka, Victory Flag.
The daily Victory Flag tradition, which will continue into the foreseeable future for generations to come, carries with it great spiritual significance. It represents the victory of the sankirtan movement of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, the victory of our acharyas in their efforts to preach Gauranga’s message, the victory of ISKCON in establishing Sridhama Mayapur as the most sacred tirtha in this age, and finally, the victory of Srila Prabhupada in fulfilling all the above as the senapati bhakta, Commander in Chief of Lord Caitanya.
TOVP – Together Offer Victory to Prabhupada
The daily Victory Flag seva offers devotees the opportunity to sponsor the hoisting of a flag onto one of the three domes of the TOVP. They can sponsor in their own name, their guru’s name, the name of a deceased relative, on a special holy day, etc. Every day of the year is available for this seva opportunity. Please visit the TOVP website for more information and to sponsor a Victory Flag today.
Finally, for those who might be interested, the flag hoisted personally by Jayapataka Maharaja is available for sale by the TOVP fundraising office for the meager cost of $7,000. Please contact Braja Vilasa das if you are interested at firstname.lastname@example.org.
