Donations For GambhirÄ Renovations

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts






Just recently, i came across one of the webpages at Mäyäpur.com that offered all the devotees a golden opportunity...


The Gambhirä, whiere Lord Caitanya, lived and stayed in the Mähäbhäva, is due for renovations... and so all the devotees will have a great golden opportunity to serve the Lord.


The following is an excerpt taken from http://www.dandavats.com/?p=2902


The temple has sustained much damage over the years due to lack of proper maintenance. The whole place is very dirty and the roofs and walls are falling down. The temple roof is also cracking. Additionally, the temple has a lack of proper income for the maintenance of the devotees and for deity puja—and, of course, the more the Gambhira is allowed to deteriorate, the fewer visitors it will have.


At this crucial point, the mahanta of Gambhira has requested ISKCON to extend kind assistence to him in order to protect and maintain this most holy place. Devotees from all over the world come to offer their prayers and obeisances at Gambhira. This is one of the most important places for the followers of Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, and must be maintained nicely.

Thus, this is a golden opportunity for devotees to render service to this most sacred cause.
