Reply To Solai Regarding His Article Titled 'the Long Term Impact Of Urbanizing Mayapur'
Posted September 26, 2005
The Mayapur Temple Project is an attempt to fulfill a divine vision of Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur's, so the ISKCON devotees will probably not agree to call the project off. Perhaps Solai prabhu can utilize his knowledge and expertise in geology and ecology to help devise a more viable city plan.
Rather than trying to recreate a simple pastoral past that is changing
(with or without us) all around the world, we can use our knowledge of
material sciences (including understanding the modes of material nature)
and spiritual science to develop, preserve and maintain these wonderful
holy sites of pilgrimage.
