Donate To Bhakta Bandhav Temple Altar

Hare Krishna and Hello everyone!

In collaboration with The Bhakta Bandhav Mission a months long effort has been underway to create an altar for Their Most Beautiful Lordships, Sri Sri Radha Raman, Seva Kunj directly from Sri Vrindavan Dham, India. This altar will be placed inside Bhakta Bandhav’s newly renovated temple.

The mission resides upon a beautiful 60 acre property in the lower Hudson Valley of NY in the town of Ellenville, which is located within the Catskills area and is nearby a community lake, gorgeous waterfalls, streams, state parks, reservoirs, caves and mountains. The journey and transformation for this property and temple has been a most beautiful process since its' beginning in October of 2020, and continues to quickly mature and develop. Bhakta Bandhav is home to a small yet very productive and dedicated group of devotees who are continuously hard at work to spread their mission following in the footsteps of Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada and Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Goswami Maharaj. In this way their mission is to provide cultural activities, facility and spiritual education to propagate divine knowledge and understanding of the culture of pure bhakti, which is offering pure loving devotional service unto the Lord.

(Journey and altar details outlined in video)

An altar, as most of us know, is most important in our worship of the Lord because in many ways it symbolizes the home in which the Lord resides. It outlines the exact place inside the temple in which we can offer worship, prayer, meditate upon, give praise and gratitude unto the Lord. This will undoubtedly increase the joy of and give much happiness to all the devotees and guests that congregate at this mission from nearby towns and cities to worship in this way, beholding their Lordships upon this most magnificent alter. As Bhakta Bandhav currently hosts, and will soon be hosting more, Vaishnava festivals, various retreats (Spiritual, Yoga, Well-being based, etc.), Kirtan festivals, Children’s camps and more, this altar will ultimately help to spread the glories of this most loving mission as well.

Once the altar is made, it will go on a well packaged two month long journey, in parts, by sea (from Sri Vrindavan Dham, Uttar Pradesh, India). When it arrives in America, it will be picked up and assembled at Bhakta Bandhav. As I had mentioned prior, this altar is already in the process of its construction and is nearing completion we are hoping to raise $10,000 to cover the remaining costs of this effort. All funds will be used solely to pay for all remaining designing, labor costs, construction and shipping of this custom made altar, and any remaining funds will be donated directly also to the Bhakta Bandhav Mission. We are in full faith that the funds needed to support this effort will all come in time for this. 

We are humbly asking if you feel inclined to please donate ant amount to this enormous undertaking to provide a lasting home for Their Lordships Sri Sri Radha Raman, Seva Kunj, as well as Srila Gurudeva and Srila Prabhupada, it would be immensely and most greatly appreciated! This is a worldwide effort and our goal is to give everyone an opportunity to donate and be a part of this loving offering and mission because we fully understand it is the loving service of all members inside and outside of a community that make this mission work. A collaborative effort created this project and your donation will help in its completion. Additionally, please spread the word of this fundraiser to anyone else that you feel may also be interested in giving their support.

Lastly, may you be blessed in your contribution and support of this effort as it will serve as a spiritual beacon in this temple community for many years to come. Thank You for all your support! Wishing you all the best! Praise the Lord! Hare Krishna!
