Dear Devotees,

Below is some brief information about the life and glories of Srivas Pandit.

This year, for the first time in the history of ISKCON Mayapur, the festival fee has been abolished!

Mayapur Festival Fee Abolished for 2001
By Hari Sauri das

At a recent meeting of the Mayapur Gaura Purnima Festival committee a new approach to organizing the Mayapur Gaura Purnima festival was decided upon. The most significant change is that the traditional festival fee has been abolished.

Visitors to the festival will now only pay for their accommodations and prasadam. Whereas at previous festivals devotees were required to pay a special festival fee to enable the provision of the various facilities that pilgrims enjoy, from now on there will be no extra charges. (Please note that the Navadvipa mandala Parikrama is funded separately and regular charges will apply for this).

Please Help Mayapur Cows
By Hare Krsna dasi

CHAKRA (Mayapur, India) - November 10, 2000: CHAKRA has recently posted information about the need for help for the flood clean-up in Mayapur. Much help is needed, especially to help build the gurukula to a more flood-resistant facility. Certainly, the loss of buildings and teaching materials in the gurukula is a heartbreaking situation. One purpose of the gurukula is to help train our future brahmanas, and as we know, Krishna is always concerned with the welfare and comfort of the brahmanas.

But, even more important to Krishna than the comfort of the brahmanas -- Srila Prabhupada informs us -- is the comfort of the cows.

Sri Mayapur Flood Bulletin and Gurukula Appeal
By Bhagavat Dharma das

CHAKRA (London, England) - October 25th, 2000: There is still a lot of work to do in ISKCON Mayapur, and we are continuing to support the villagers around the campus. And we still need your help. However, I think it would be fair to downgrade our emergency status from 10 down to about 7 on the Richter scale as it were.

That would not at all have been possible if it had not been for the substantial help and support we have received from devotees all over the world. I will write to all contributors individually in due course, but I wanted to offer a general thank you to all members of the devotee community for all your well wishes, your kindness and your consideration.

Sri Mayapur Project News
By Vol 3, Number 1. March 2000

A hot topic these days is globalization. It means big corporations developing global markets: Kentucky Fried Chicken selling in India, and so on. The term also covers satellite broadcasting, which goes everywhere, and the spreading of a global 'culture' rooted in Hollywood, New York and London. (Then there is the Internet!) How will the Vedic culture fare in this globalize world?

THE MOTHER OF ALL FLOODS
How should we protect the Devotees and the Temple?
Insights by Gaura Sakti Dasa

This year Mayapur experienced the worst floods since 1978. At one stage, the water in the temple room was over five feet deep. Unusually, the water fell and rose again four times. I asked Gaura Sakti Dasa, head of construction, why it was happening, how badly it affected the devotees and whether it can be prevented in the future.

Edited by Bhagavat Dharma dasa

We are working to fulfill Srila Prabhupada's desire to build the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium, along with a wonderful devotee township. We are trying to the best of our ability, to do this in a practical and achievable way. We do not want to place any strain on ISKCON resources.

That is not to say that we do not need your help and support. We especially need your encouragement and blessings. We also hope that you will tell your family, friends, fellow devotees and congregation members—in fact anyone you come in contact with, about this project.

ISKCON Ambulance Service for Sri Mayapur Villages
From a News Release by
Pancaratna das, Mayapur
From the Shri Mayapur News June 1998


Over 30 thousand residents of the villages surrounding Sri Mayapur can now rest a bit easier with the introduction of a subsidised ambulance service in the area by the Sri Mayapur Vikas Sangha. Before the introduction of this service, most local residents had to depend on bicycle rickshaws and bullock carts in the case of emergency, taking several hours to reach the district hospital. With the new ambulance service this time has been reduced by nearly 75 percent which, in many cases, could mean the difference between life and death.

The Sorry Tale of the Oil Investigation Rig
from the Shri Mayapur News May 98


What devotees at the festival did not see was a second, more specialised rig, which was brought to India from Singapore, by KND/Fugro, and which was held by Indian customs in Calcutta for nine months. 'That was bad enough', Ian told me, 'But the real trouble began when the 25 foot mobile rig was released by customs'. The driver, unused to driving tall vehicles, made his way, by some miracle, as far as Mayapur. It was night-time as he then turned on to the Taranpur Road, to gain access to the site.

'As he went along the road, he pulled down all the telephone and electrical wires. The villagers just couldn't tolerate it, and pulled him from the cab and gave him a beating', said Ian. 'Rather than risk further trouble, the driver turned into a field, got one wheel stuck in a ditch and simply ran off, leaving the million dollar rig tilting dangerously.'
