Various books, pamphlets, DVDs, photo albums, newsletters, bulletins and other paraphernalia will be made available at the office as well as information about varnasrama projects in India and abroad.
Overseeing the Mayapur Regional Office will be Prabhu Nityananda Das who has been supervising the development of the Daiva Varnashrama Ministry in West Bengal since the last two years. Assisting him will be Sudama Sakha Das from South America who has recently relocated to Sri Mayapur and who will be managing the office.
Devotees are invited to take part in the inauguration ceremony which will be held on Thursday morning, January 20th, between 11:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. The event will be covered live by the mayapur.tv.
