In a few days, from April 26 (Akshaya Tritiya) until May 6 (Nrsimha Caturdasi), we will begin the Second Annual #GivingTOVP 10 Day Matching Fundraiser to raise funds for the completion of Lord Nrsimha’s temple wing and altar in 2021, now combined with the TOVP Care Emergency Fundraising Campaign for ISKCON Mayapur. Ambarisa prabhu will match the total collection up to $150,000 for the TOVP, and additionally match 10% of the collection for the Deities, devotees and cows of ISKCON Mayapur. We hope every devotee worldwide will contribute their might, large or small, even during these challenging times caused by the Corona virus pandemic.
We especially feel that giving during the 10 days from Akshaya Tritiya till Nrsimha Caturdasi is particularly auspicious, and will be favorable for receiving the Lord’s blessings and protection. During this time Gangamata descended from the heavenly regions to purify the earthly realm, Vyasa began writing Mahabharata for the benefit of the human race, Sudama was blessed by Lord Krishna, Draupadi was provided with unlimited sari cloth, and her Akshaya patra satisfied Durvasa Muni and his 10,000 disciples with a morsel of food.
We are confident this time will bring us all auspiciousness, and giving to the TOVP will be a conduit for that mercy. This temple will not only stand out within the Gaudiya Vaishnava community, but will be a beacon of hope and spiritual enlightenment for humanity for thousands of years into the future. We cannot allow a small glitch in human history to slow our progress.
Additionally, we will shortly be announcing the Nrsimha Caturdasi Maha Yajna and Japa Yajna on May 5 for the benefit and protection of all devotees. You will be able to provide your name and the names of your immediate family members to be read to Lord Nrsimha during the Maha Yajna, and will receive a special Nrsimha prasadam thread as a gift for each person you have named.
Here’s the website link for more information and to make your offering to Lord Nrsimha during the #GivingTOVP & TOVP Care Fundraiser for the completion of His temple wing and altar, and the support of ISKCON Mayapur, the World Headquarters of ISKCON.
