In a recent interview, Visnu Murti Das, the driving force behind Vanipedia, shared an inspiring vision for the online platform and the new BLS Vani-Village project in Radhadesh – Belgium. With a passionate call for dedicated devotees, talented writers, and researchers to assist the platform, Vanipedia is poised to become a beacon of knowledge and inspiration for followers of Srila Prabhupada’s teachings.

Vanipedia, an integral department of BLS, is a groundbreaking online platform that serves as a digital oasis of Srila Prabhupada’s teachings. It seeks to connect devotees and the world with the essence of his wisdom, allowing them to deepen their understanding and spiritual practice in Krishna Consciousness. Unlike other websites, Vanipedia is not merely a collection of data – but a curated and educational platform that presents the sum and substance of the meaning of the human form of life in a uniform and easily accessible format.

Visnu Murti Das, a committed servant of ISKCON with a rich history in Srila Prabhupada’s mission, has been tirelessly working for over 16 years to compile and present the teachings of Srila Prabhupada in a comprehensive and easily accessible manner. His vision for Vanipedia is to ensure that Srila Prabhupada’s vani, his divine instructions, remain relevant and accessible for generations to come.

The new BLS Vani-Village project in Radhadesh is a significant infrastructural development for Vanipedia and Bhaktivedanta Library Services (BLS). It consists of a warehouse for book distribution and living facilities for devotees to engage in full-time service. This space will enable the growth and expansion of Vanipedia and BLS, furthering their mission to disseminate the wisdom of Srila Prabhupada.

One of the key phases of Vanipedia’s development has been its commitment to providing free access to Srila Prabhupada’s teachings. They generously distribute the teachings without any subscription fees or advertisements. Fueled by a deep desire to serve, this selfless endeavor lays a solid foundation for Vanipedia’s growth.

Another essential phase of Vanipedia’s expansion has been cultivating a multilingual team of volunteers. These enthusiastic individuals spread across the globe have been instrumental in curating, translating, promoting, and making Vanipedia more visible. However, to take Vanipedia to new heights, the platform requires strategic promoters, writers, and compilers who can contribute their skills to present Prabhupada’s teachings in innovative and trailblazing ways.

Whether you are a talented writer, a skilled researcher, a creative communicator, or possess technical proficiency, Vanipedia seeks these unique abilities to enhance the platform. “We need serious promoters and writers who can package and present Vanipedia in a way that shines the brightest light on Srila Prabhupada’s teachings. We must raise his wisdom to high noon and install it there, ensuring they remain fixed so they never set on the horizon,” said Visnu Murti Das.

Visnu Murti Prabhu emphasized the importance of financial support to sustain and accelerate Vanipedia’s growth. Donations play a crucial role in assuring the ability to maintain talented devotees who can contribute their full time to the platform’s development. By investing in Vanipedia, patrons can ensure that Srila Prabhupada’s Vani remains a shining light in the digitally manifested world, reaching countless individuals with its transformative wisdom.

As Vanipedia continues to evolve, it aims to become the number one spiritual website on the planet, providing an ever-enriching feast of Srila Prabhupada’s vani. The platform’s success relies on the support of devotees who recognize the importance of preserving and disseminating Srila Prabhupada’s teachings for future generations. This shared commitment will ensure that the timeless wisdom of Srila Prabhupada illuminates the lives of countless seekers, guiding them on their spiritual journey.
