ISKCON Pandharpur Flood Relief
Dear Vaishnavas and Vaishnavis,
Hare Krishna! Please accept my most humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
On behalf of our ISKCON GBC representative, His Holiness Lokanath Swami Maharaja and our ISKCON Pandharpur Community, we are appealing to you for your kind help. On Oct, 16th, Sri Pandharpur Dhama was flooded by the Chandrabhaga River. The damages are estimated at more than Rs 40,00,000 ($56000) We are not in a position to rebuild our losses. Sri Sri Radha Pandharinath’s crops and flowers growing in the fields are now submerged in water and gone. Their Lordships’ temple, goshala, ashram, guest house, Govinda’s Restaurant, offices, BBT Books, Gurukula, and Srila Prabhupada Ghata have all been severely damaged. We need your help.
Mosquitoes are breeding in the flooded lands. Devotees need proper shelter to insure their safety. Our cows will not receive the high standard of care at the lotus feet of Sri Sri Radha Pandharinath until their goshala is cleaned and repaired. We are not currently able to properly receive and host our guests.
We appeal to devotees around the world to please donate generously. With your donations we can rebuild. Our cows can come back to their goshala and once again graze there in a happy and peaceful mood. Tons of mud can be cleaned from the buildings. Damaged structures can be repaired. Devotees can return to their ashrams. Our infrastructure can return to the new normal and continue to serve the global community of devotees. Srila Prabhupada Ghata can continue attracting and offering shelter to pilgrims from all over the world.
Please donate today! We urgently need your help now!
As a token of gratitude, everyone who gives any donation will receive a signed copy of the book written by Lokanath Swami Maharaja, “Bhu-Vaikuntha” by post. Bhu-Vaikuntha is a comprehensive guidebook to Sri Pandharpur Dhama. The glories and history of Sri Pandharpur Dhama including visits of Lord Caitanya, Lord Nityananda, Visvarupa Prabhu and Tukaram Maharaja are revealed.
I am enclosing donation transfer details below. You can donate from both India and abroad. Please don’t hesitate to contact me for any additional details.
Thank you very much.
Yours in the service of Sri Sri Radha Pandharinath and Pandharpur Dhama
Temple President ISKCON Pandharpur
