November 15th celebrated the one year anniversary of the Sadaputa Digital Channel on Youtube featuring over 100 lectures and videos about Vedic perspectives on modern science by Sadaputa Dasa, Dr. Richard L. Thompson, one of Srila Prabhupadas original founding members of the Bhaktivedanta Institute. He is responsible for much of the design of the planetarium in the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium (TOVP) in Mayapur and for other exhibits planned for the project. He passed away in 2008, leaving behind a valuable legacy of lectures, videos, books and other writings which are now in the process of being made available for serious study and research.
During this first year online, the Youtube Channel has reached almost 1,000 subscribers, over 82,000 views, and almost 2 million minutes of watching time. We hope to double this by the same time next year.
The Sadaputa Digital Channel Facebook Page is an extension of the Youtube Channel to help further promote his work to the Vaishnava community and serious spiritual seekers. It features a weekly lecture post, videos and many of Sadaputa’s written articles, Monograms and other writings. There is also a FundRazr Tab to contribute to the cause of promoting his works.
The lectures of Sadaputa Dasa are currently being transcribed by a team of eight devotees with the aim of publishing these in several volumes along with matching CDs. A website is also underway which will give further opportunity to serious researchers to examine and learn from his works.
