|Chakra Helps Vrindavan
by Vipramukhya Swami
CHAKRA (Bhaktivedanta Manor, UK) - May 19, 1999: An article on Chakra has helped raise $7,500 for the Vrindavan Gurukula, according to Braja Bihari dasa.
When Chakra editor Madhusudani Radha dasi informed Braja Bihari that the Vrindavan Gurukula article had been published, he replied: "Not only am I aware that the Vrindavan Gurukula article made it on to Chakra, but listen to this......!!!!!.....
"A few days after your article was posted I got an e-mail from a devotee who asked to remain Anonymous. He asked me how much it would cost to paint the gurukula since it sounded from Madhusudani's article that that was a great need. I told him that re-plastering, minor repairs and fresh paint for the inside of the building and the roadside exterior would cost $7,500. He wrote back asking, Where do I send the money. He gave $7,500 and the money has already been transferred to India and the work has started and will be done before the school year begins in July!
"Amazing, huh? Youre our biggest fund-raiser to date. Thank you so much, and also please thank the other devotees working with Chakra."
Chakra is pleased to be of assistance.
