Letter to the Devotees, 16 December 2014
Please accept my blessings or obeisances all glories to Srila Prabhupada.
I am humbly writing if you would consider assisting in the X-mas season fundraiser for Radha Syama s altar and pujari room renovation. As you know it is the season that people give gifts and are inclined to be kind hearted. Somehow it also effects devotees in that way. This year we received wonderful Hungarian and international support and while two thirds of our goal has been reached another $150,000 is still outstanding, and that will have to be paid out by the end of March. That is the scheduling of the project, and we seem to be right on schedule–believe it or not.
I have given my life to Radha Syama. Or rather they have robbed me of it. And as a result I have found that there is another world beyond my own false ego, a wonderful and joyous world. I want to try to facilitate bringing that world to the eyes of devotees and guests, so that they too will lose their hearts and make a beeline for Vraja. Calo mana sri vrndavana. For that reason we are doing the renovations. And because I can t stand for Radha Syama to have to settle for second best.
How can you assist? That you know best. I am thinking that in your interaction with many devotees and perhaps those who have heard of New Vraja-dhama or even visited you can communicate to them via Facebook, podcast, website, telephone or face-to-face.
What material do we have to assist you? Connect people to our Facebook link at www.facebook.com/temple.renovation and you will daily see in both Hungarian and English new videos from me, videos about renovation features and videos from the team–artists, carvers, marble workers and builders.
If there is something special you need to know, write in to this site and title your inquiry Radha Syama renovation”. I will get your message the same day.
Thank you. Jaya Radha Syama!
