Week Ahead 28 January – 4 February

Week Ahead

Dear Friends,

This week we welcome His Grace Ambarish Prabhu, a disciple of Srila Prabhupada, chairman of the board for construction of the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium in Mayapur and he is the great grandson of Henry Ford, the founder of the Ford Motor Company.

Srila Prabhupada was a true visionary. He wanted to offer the world a temple with a detailed vision of the Vedic cosmology as described in Srimad Bhagavatam. Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur narrated a description of the future development of Mayapur given by Sri Nityananada Prabhu to Srila Jiva Gosvami: “One exceedingly wonderful temple (adbhuta-mandira) will appear from which Gauranga’s eternal service will be preached everywhere.” It was during Srila Prabhupada’s last visit to America that Prabhupada asked Ambarish Prabhu to provide the funds for this adbhuta mandir, the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium. Srila Prabhupada said that the secret of success in spiritual life is to try and fulfill the desires of the previous acharyas. Therefore our mission is to please Srila Prabhupada and the previous acharyas by developing this temple in a way that most closely follows the instructions and vision of Srila Prabhupada. We invite you to join us on this journey of fulfilling the vision of that great visionary, Srila A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada – the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium.
