The Temple of the Vedic Planetarium (TOVP), ISKCON’s flagship center in Mayapur, West Bengal has released a new smartphone app on both Android and Apple platforms.
Since 2016, when it was launched as an offering to Srila Prabhupada for ISKCON’s 50th anniversary, the Fortunate People project has seen devotees film people chant the Hare Krishna mantra for the first time “for love and peace.”
The text is fully – and quickly! – searchable in each language. Easy-to-read with many customizable features, including the ability to bookmark, highlight, and make notes.
Rise brings its users short bursts of wake-up wisdom from the comfort of their phones. It has simple, uncomplicated spiritual tools specific for everyone’s needs. If you’re stressed, search through the videos on stress. If you’re looking for advice on relationships, search through the videos on relationships. And if you’re looking to realize your inner self, the app may even have something for that too. It’s a practical, accessible approach to spirituality created for the modern world, which is why it all fits into everyone’s mobile.
“Vaishnav Songs!”, a new app for Android smartphones, promises to bring users deeper into the meaning of prayers written by our Vaishnava Acharyas. The app was created by Jay Prakash, who completed his Bachelor of Technology at IIT Bombay, one of the most prestigious institutes in India. He also led the tech team at Housing.com, one of India’s leading startups of 2012.
With the aim of keeping devotees informed about the progress of the TOVP literally right at their fingertips, the new free TOVP App gives everyone access to features such as news updates, links to the website, photos, YouTube Channel and Facebook Page, TOVP social wall, and even a donation link. Future links will include the up-and-coming TOVP online store.
An app entitled “Krsna – The Sweet Lord,” is now available and promises to place the best of what ISKCON has to offer in the palm of your hand.
