During the time when Srila Prabhupada was personally present, and he traveled worldwide to his many flourishing ISKCON temples, devotees would have marathons preparing for his arrival. They would build new vyasasanas, paint the temple, clean the building from top to bottom, and sometimes spend sleepless nights arranging things as perfectly as possible for his service. These acts of love and devotion to Sakshad Hari, the representative of God, did not go in vain, and Prabhupada reciprocated in loving kind by bestowing his blessings and blissful association.
This mood is what we are trying to recapture with the momentous installation of the new, one-of-a-kind, worship-pose Prabhupada murti in the TOVP in October, especially this year which commemorates his 125th Appearance Anniversary Year. We want to create an ecstatic and heartfelt worldwide WELCOME to our Founder/Acharya as he enters his most beloved project for the first time. This attitude will bring his blessings upon all of us, the pioneers of this massive project, as he sits in the TOVP to watch over the completion of the temple. And finally, he will continue to remain there to watch as generations of Vaishnavas and visiting pilgrims from all corners of the world enter the gates of ISKCON Mayapur.
Even if you can’t be physically present, you can be a part of this glorious combined welcome by sponsoring an abhisheka for Srila Prabhupada. Five kinds of abhishekas are available to sponsor beginning with the Sacred Water abhisheka consisting of water from 125 sacred rivers, celebrating Prabhupada’s 125th Appearance Anniversary Year. Every family member can individually sponsor one of these abhishekas. Special 100% copper, sliver, gold and platinum coins will also ‘bathe’ Prabhupada, and these can be sponsored and received after the abhisheka.
It’s time to prepare for Prabhupada’s arrival at the TOVP and sponsor an abhisheka today.
