Of course, while giving in charity is a most admirable act of good will, we understand from the Bhagavad Gita that there are different types of charity according to the three modes of material nature. The best charity, however, is to the Vaishnavas and the service of Lord Vishnu because it is transcendental and carries far more spiritual and eternal benefits than mundane charity which is limited and temporary.
This year we would like to request devotees from all over the world to use this one day of giving to sponsor an abhisheka for the installation of the new Prabhupada murti in the TOVP in October, 2021. There are five kinds of abhishekas according to the means and desire of the giver. We at the TOVP consider this sponsorship service to be our combined way of expressing a worldwide welcome and greeting to Srila Prabhupada, and a guru dakshina offering to him as a thank you for his causeless mercy and the gift of Krishna consciousness to all of us.
To sponsor an abhisheka go to the Prabhupada Installation Page. However, if you live in the U.S. we encourage you to participate in this fundraiser exclusively through our Facebook Page, TOVP Foundation, as Facebook will match all donations to their approved nonprofits. Click here to go to the TOVP Foundation Facebook Page and follow the instructions there.
As always, we are extremely grateful to all our donors and supporters who have made this project possible, and with your continued help we will open Sri Sri Radha Madhava’s, Sri Pancha Tattva’s and Lord Nrsimhadeva’s new home in 2023.
