Assistant Pujari Needed in Mayapur
Posted March 18, 2008
I am looking for an assistant pujari for the Gaura Nitai deities at my apartment in Mayapur. You will be provided with a 1 bedroom apartment, private kitchen and bathroom, on the floor above mine, in addition to Rs2000 per month allowance. You must be second initiated in ISKCON, and willing to live in Mayapur. Your required duties will be:
- Minimum 1 hour per day of assistance to the full time pujari. This means whatever the full time pujari requests, such as preparing or cleaning the arotik tray, cooking or preparing an offering, etc.
- Playing kirtan or singing bhajans during your choice of arotiks, such as the evening Gaura arotik at 8pm.
- Peforming complete arotik in replace of the full time pujari, in case he is unavailable to do it. Your Rs2000 per month allowance covers only occasional replacement arotiks, say no more than 5 per month. If we need you to take over more arotiks, then your allowance will increase.
- You will be required to participate to the best of your ability in the Ekadasi Vigil at my apartment. This means that, during the night of every Ekadasi, the full time pujari and myself will be staying up to keep arotik every three hours, along with dancing, singing, reading, vedic DVDs, fire yajna, japa, and more. The assistant pujari will be expected to join us during every Vigil, and should at least make a reasonable effort to do so without deliberately taking rest. Our intention is to expand the practice of Ekadasi Vigil with your help. We have future plans to include a Sarvatobhadra Mandala and establish new Vishnu murtis on every Ekadasi.
