I wish to thank from the bottom of my heart all the worldwide donors and supporters of the TOVP who, for the last nine years, have inspired me with their devotion and love for Srila Prabhupada’s mission and the TOVP. I am eternally grateful and you will undoubtedly be blessed for your service to Sridhama Mayapur. If you have not yet made a pledge or a donation, this is the time now to help and to solidify your relationship with Sridhama Mayapur and the TOVP project.
There are less than four years left to complete Srila Prabhupada’s dear most project by the Grand Opening date of 2023. And there is still much work to do. The MISSION 23 marathon is in full force and we need your help now more than ever to reach our common goal. For the next two years we require $10 million annually and $15 million total thereafter, making a grand total of $35 million to complete the project.
The idea is to connect one and all to the seva of the holy dhama so when you come to Mayapur and see the TOVP you will be in tears remembering that you helped to build this temple which will create a spiritual legacy in the history of mankind for thousands of years by bringing the mercy of Mahaprabhu to all the misdirected civilization of the world. As Srila Prabhupada said:
“My idea is to attract people of the whole world to Mayapur”
Our motto has always been that this temple is being built by the hands of all the devotees. And it is our common anxiety to finish this temple by 2023. Srila Prabhupada said that anxiety for Krishna is very rare and is most auspicious. In the material world anxiety is shunned, but anxiety for Krishna is the highest perfection, the highest meditation. It is the pressure of love which motivates our every action to please our beloved Lord.
To all our donors I say thank you, and also humbly ask that you consider giving more. To those who have not yet donated I humbly beg that you consider giving now. To all I humbly request that you stretch your limits by going even beyond your capacity, beyond your own expectations and witness the empowerment of the Lord in fulfilling your seva commitment. Say to yourself:
“Yes, I can and I will donate more than my capacity for the pleasure of Srila Prabhupada to help build his Mayapur temple which will create a revolution in the minds of a misdirected civilization for the next 10,000 years.”
It is your devotion and support which is building this temple and which is inspiring us here at the TOVP to unflinchingly continue with the utmost endeavor.
Lastly, my request to all is that you become an Ambassador for the TOVP by telling all your devotee friends and relatives to also join you in this wonderful, transcendental MISSION 23 to complete the TOVP by 2023. Just direct them to the TOVP website where they can donate as much or as little as they like, because this is still the temple being built by the hands of every devotee.
