Haribol CHAKRA devotees
Please accept my humble
obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
Could you please post this
announcement on your site? Thanks.
I would also suggest that
you open up a page on CHAKRA for any devotee to write an offering for Srila
Prabhupada, to appear on August 13, 2001 (Vyasa Puja day). Of course, the
offerings would need to meet some CHAKRA editorial standard. In addition, I
would supply the offerings from the printed book, as usual.

Prabhupada's 2001 Vyasa Puja Book
Please accept my
humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
This year the
deadline for writing offerings for Srila Prabhupada's Vyasa Puja book is
February 28, 2001, six weeks earlier than usual. The idea is to leave more
time for promoting the book before Vyasa Puja and to enable us to ship the
book earlier, thus greatly reducing shipping costs. The official call for
Your servant Dravida
Deadline for offerings: February 28, 2001
offerings will be accepted after this date.
Offerings must be in
Please restrict the
length to a maximum of 3,000 words or 15k of ASCII text.
Please omit all
diacritics. It's easier for us to put them in.
Do not “recycle”
an offering--no offerings from previous years will be accepted.
The Vyasa-puja book
is meant for glorifying Srila Prabhupada, not for venting grievances. The
BBT reserves the right to reject an offering it deems inappropriate or to
ask for a rewrite.
When writing an
offering on behalf of a temple or other unit, please try to write in such
a way that the other devotees in your unit can also identify with the
offering. This is not a hard and fast rule.
Who may write an
1) Governing Body
representatives of ISKCON temples, preaching centers, farms, gurukulas,
BBT offices, and “others,” such as BTG magazine, Hare Krishna World,
and ISCOWP (this is not a complete list).
4) No multiple
offerings. For example, a temple should not enlist all its bhaktas to
write offerings under the temple heading. Joint authorship (2--4 devotees)
of a single offering is fine.
5) Please make sure
you tell us where the offering originates. For example: New Vamsi-vata
(the Madagascar farm community), NOT just New Vamsi-vata. If we don't know
where the offering comes from, we will not print it.
6) Always leave a
double space between paragraphs. If you want some special formatting,
submit your offering in printed form or send it as an attached file in
Microsoft Word or RTF format (see 1. below).
Ways to submit an
offering, in order of preference:
1) By uploading
offering to Dravida dasa at email@example.com.
hand-delivering a 3.5-inch floppy disk, ZIP disk, CD-ROM, etc., or printed
offering to Svavasa Dasa, BBT Trustee, at Mayapur during the GBC Meetings.
Any Mac or PC format ok, but please label the disk. Include an e-mail
address on the label just in case we can't read it.
3) By sending
offering on 3.5-inch floppy disk or other medium to Vyasa-puja Book, 3764
Watseka Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90034. Any Mac or PC format ok, but please
label the diskette.
4) By faxing
offering to BBT offices in LA: (310) 837-1056.
5) By mailing a
typed or carefully handwritten offering to Vyasa-puja Book, 3764 Watseka
Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90034. (If you plan to send a printout, why not send
it on a disk or upload it and save us all that keying in!)
Offerings may be
submitted any time from now until February 28, 2001. Receipt of offering
by e-mail will be confirmed on e-mail. For other offerings you can confirm
receipt by calling direct to (310) 837-5283. Don't expect a return call or
fax; keep trying till you get a live person.
The BBT is not
responsible for illegible or lost offerings.
