Greeting From Mayapur

by Bhakti Purusottama Swami

Posted January 19, 2007

Dear Devotees,

Sri Mayapur is always special in the heart of millions of devotees around the world as Sri Mayapur Chandrodaya Mandir is our mother temple. We relish our eternal relationship with Mayapur as we are all part of the congregation of Sri Mayapur Chandrodaya Mandir as well. The expanding and ever increasing flow of devotees year after year reaffirm that this land of Golden Avatar is our eternal shelter.

Just in few weeks time, devotees from all corners of the world will arrive again at Sri Mayapur to rejuvenate this relationship, to worship Sri Panca -tattva and celebrate Gaura Purnima in the association of devotees. The festival is also a special time to show our love and establish that Mayapur belongs to us all.

The success of festival over these years was possible by the kind contribution of good souls like you, which has helped to host thousands of devotees with FREE PRASADAM, festival arrangements, right from printing the invitation to performing the Maha Abhisek of Lord Gauranga. Festival committee has done away with festival and prasadam fees and also MIHET Sat-sanga seminars are without service charges, to help the participating devotees derive full benefit out of festival. Everyday evening, a variety entertainment is organized and all these events are sponsored. The list of events are increasing every year and PANCA-TATTVA ABHISEK OF HOLY NAME is done this year to invoke the mercy and blessings of Sri Panca Tattva to help all the devotees to preach the glories of Holy Name in every town and village of the whole world.

As you can understand, the estimation for such a massive International festival is high. Funding plays an important aspect in the success of the festival. Hence for this purpose we have set up an offering of service online at

The Mayapur Festival Committee has arranged a variety of sevas to choose from offering a silver lamp (just for $21) to different levels of offering abhishek. You can sponsor Prasad for pilgrims and devotees, have the swing festival of Sri Radha-Madhav done in your name, or sponsor special pujas like Ganga-puja, Go-puja and Viswa Shanti Yajna. For further details of different sevas, please visit now.

Even if you are unable to attend the Festival personally, still by making an offering of service, you can be a part of Gaura-Purnima festival and achieve immense spiritual benefits of service in holy dham.

Srila Prabhupada always wanted to make this Gaura-purnima festival a grand event and we request you to join your hands with us to serve Srila Prabhupada at His place of worship, Sri Mayapur Dham

Less than 30 days for the festival to start and many arrangements needs to be completed before the devotees arrive. Therefore I request you to make your offering Now.

Looking forward to your continued support and association.

Your servant in the service of Srila Prabhupada,
