The TEMPLE OF THE VEDIC PLANETARIUM (TOVP) team, would like to thank all the online and offline donors for their generous support. We are grateful for your commitment and spirit of giving. A month back we started the TOVP online giving and found tremendous response. We are so glad that you all have seized upon this once in a million lifetimes opportunity and have donated to see this beautiful and world changing temple constructed.
Srila Prabhupada ordered the grass hut to remain next to the huge temple, "so they can see from where we have come."
You are all helping in this supremely important mission of Srila Prabhupada. Each gift helps ensure that this Temple and the ISKCON movement will continue for many generations, and also that Mayapur will become known around the world in accordance with the desires of Srila Prabhupada and the previous acharyas.
As tomorrow is Akshaya Tritiya which is considered the most auspicious day in the vedic calendar. It is a day bereft of all inauspiciousness. So even checking muhurthas is considered unnecessary. The word Akshaya means, that which never diminishes, hence beginnings made or valuables bought on this day are considered auspicious enough to bring luck and success. Whatever services are offered to the supreme lord Krishna or his devotees on this day receives manifold eternal benefits. Dana (donation) given today is said to give manyfold results..
