Become an instrument in unfolding Srila Prabhupada’s vision

Dear Devotees,

Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Greetings from Sridham Mayapur and blessings from Sri Sri Radha-Madhava, Sri Panchatattva and Sri Sri Prahlada Nrsimhadeva.

Today, I am writing to you to share some exciting news.

The Mayapur Institute campus project is now taking shape and the vision of our respected acaryas is about to become a reality, with the inauguration of Phase one of this project. On 3rd July 2017, we are going to perform the inauguration and on 8th July 2017 bhawan-pravesha Yajna will be performed.

Since the time of Lord Chaitanya,  Navadvip has been a place of Gaudiya Vaishnava learning, and today people from all over the world come to here to study the scriptures and the knowledge that has been imparted from our Acaryas.

Verses 60 and 61 from the Chaitanya Bhagavat Adi-khanda 2nd Chapter state:

nana-desha haite loka navadvipe yaya | navadvipe padile se ‘vidya-rasa’ paya
Many people came from various provinces to study in Navadvipa, because by studying there one achieved a taste for education.
ataeva paduyara nahi samuccaya | laksha-koti adhyapaka,-nahika nishcaya
Therefore no one could count the innumerable students and millions of teachers gathered there.

Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur and Srila Prabhupada desired that we establish Mayapur as an International center for sastric study.

Srila Prabhupada desired that we establish an exclusive center here in Sridham Mayapur to achieve this:

“So we are going to open a big center in Mayapur where this education will be internationally imparted…” (letter to Atreya Rsi Prabhu, in August 20th 1971)

We have been working extremely hard to complete Phase -1 of the MI Campus Project and we are almost there – we still need Rs. 30 Lakhs to add the finishing touches to this part of the project, and we are working hard to raise the funds to bring you the exclusive Vaisnava learning institute that Srila Prabhupada wished for – let’s make this happen together. Please come and join us on 3rd and 8th July 2017!

We understand that distance may not make it possible for all of you to join us on the auspicious occasion, so I humbly ask you to consider taking this opportunity to assist us by becoming an instrument in fulfilling the desire of our previous acharyas by sponsoring one or more square feet construction of the Mayapur Institute’s Campus.

Yajna will be offered on your behalf, if you are unable to come personally.

We invite you to join us in this huge effort and attract the mercy of the Supreme Lord. Hare Krishna!

Yours in the Service of Sridham Mayapur,

Padmanayana Dasa

Director, Mayapur Institute
