With all these auspicious festivities fast approaching and very closely packed, we want to first use the opportunity to thank all our esteemed donors who took the month of Purushottama very seriously and offered their sincere services to the Lord, from Lamp sponsorship to Prasadam distribution, Sashtra Dan, general donations. We offered poojas and prayed on all your behalf at the Lotus feet of the Lord, that He may grant us a tiny space under His divine Lotus feet so we can continue rendering our heartfelt services at His Lotus feet.

As we already know, all these listed festivals are very near. Hence, we would like to use this very short time to call on all our donors who have always been there with us through their generous donations, making it possible for the festivities in Sri Dham Mayapur to be a success. We are reaching out to you today to ask for your support in making these auspicious celebrations a success. Your generous donations will help us serve Their Lordship in grand style, kindly note that for whatever seva or donation given, a special pooja with prayers shall be offered on behalf of the donor, and afterward we shall mail down the Lord's Mahaprasadam to the donor.

Janmastami 2011 The sole purpose of Krishna’s appearance was to dissipate the unscrupulous cruelty of evil leaders (darkness) and to establish righteousness (Light). Sri Krishna has appeared solely to protect His devotees, so let’s seize the opportunity with great awe, and reverence and partake wholesomely in this great advent.

"One has to understand Your appearance with great intelligence because the material energy is also emanating from You. You are the original source of the material energy, just as the sun is the source of the sunshine. The sunshine cannot cover the sun globe, nor can the material energy--being an emanation from You--cover You. You appear to be in the three modes of material energy, but the three modes of material energy cannot cover You. This is understood by highly intellectual philosophers. In other words, although You appear to be within the material energy, You are never covered by it."

We would be grateful for any support you could offer, whether it be a general donation, Seva to the Deities, Prasadam distribution, etc. Your contribution will help us make this year's celebrations one to remember.

Let’s keep in mind that these festivities only occur once a year, which is why we must take full advantage of such an auspicious time for our own benefit.

Join us at Mayapur TV if you are not physically present in Mayapur to Partake in All of These glorious events!

Many more Sevas are there for you to serve Sri Krishna, this Janmashtami 2023.
