The International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) temple in Ujjain has moved one step forward in using modern information technology as well as natural energy sources for the benefit of pilgrims.
The Radha Madanmohan Temple has gone online thus facilitating people to have live darshan in any part of the world at any time. Similarly, the temple management has put solar energy system which is capable of meeting the whole requirement of the temple corridors, restaurant and lodging extension freeing from the erratic electric supplies.
Rasalila Devi Dasi, an ISKCON devotee from New York who is the main brain behind the live telecast, told Hindustan Times that anyone could have the darshan live by going to www.mayapur.tv and clicking the Ujjain channel. The telecast is available from opening of the temple gates to closing. A state-of-the-art control room from where the cameras put at different points could be controlled and the telecast monitored is established for the work.
She said devotees could also ask any query through chat from the channel during lesson sessions at the temple.
Similarly, the solar energy system put at the temple is proving a boon as the whole electric need of light equipments, audio, video systems is met through this mode.
