This is perhaps the most important and celebrated time of the year for ISKCON devotees, apart from Gaur Purnima. The specialty of this time is that practically in the space of one thirty-day period alone we rejoice at the appearance of our four most worshipable divinities, Sri Baladeva, Sri Krishna, Srimate Radharani and Srila Prabhupada. If you think about it, it’s really a very unique arrangement that the appearance days of these four are so closely aligned.
Leaving aside all the philosophical points that could be made about this for other authors of Vaisnava articles to write about, we will focus on the practical seva opportunity to these cherished personalities during this time. Announcing, the Janmastami/Vyasa Puja/Radhastami TOVP Fundraising Marathon from August 23 until Sept. 6.
During these two weeks we are encouraging ISKCON devotees worldwide to place in their hearts the lotus feet of Sri Sri Sri Radha Madhava and help complete the construction of Their new home, so much desired by Srila Prabhupada. Please consider sponsoring a Radha Madhava Brick to be inscribed with your name and placed directly underneath Their divine lotus feet on the altar.
You may also consider sponsoring a Guru Parampara Brick for Srila Prabhupada’s Vyasa Puja with both your guru and your name inscribed on it, and placed under the Guru Parampara altar. General donations are also certainly welcome.
Whether you’ve never donated before or have already made and completed a pledge, please consider donating to support the TOVP construction. You can pay in installments or all at one time, as has always been our payment system. Donors with pledges can also use this time to make an additional payment towards their pledge.
Additionally, we are also using this special festival season to address our donors who have made pledges but have not begun their payments or have fallen behind on their payments for whatever reason with our Live Your TOVP Pledge campaign launch. This is a friendly reminder that without your help we cannot complete the TOVP. Our monthly budget has been based on income primarily from new and ongoing pledges, and we pray and beg at your lotus feet that you please somehow resume or begin your pledge payments during this most auspicious time.
Sri Balarama Jayanti ki jaya!
Sri Krishna Janmastami ki jaya!
Radhastami Mahotsava ki jaya!
Srila Prabhupada’s Vyasa Puja ki jaya!
