ISKCON Sydney is very pleased to announce the most auspicious arrival of the TOVP Tour to our temple on SAT Nov 18 2017.
The TOVP (Temple of the Vedic Planetarium) is ISKCON’s Flagship project under construction in the Holy Dhama of Sri Mayapur, West Bengal, the sacred birthplace of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, since 2009 and scheduled for completion in 2022.
The tour is led by Lord Nityananda in the form of His Padukas (Holy Shoes), Lord Nrsimha in the form of His Sitari (Sacred Helmet), accompanied by the head pujari of the Mayapur temple, Jananivas prabhu, Ambarisa prabhu, the Chairman of the TOVP and great grandson of the famous U.S. car manufacturer Henry Ford, along with his wife Svaha mataji, and the TOVP Global Fundraising Director, Vraja Vilas das.
The TOVP was the vision and desire of Srila Prabhupada to help educate the world about the importance of Vedic wisdom and the human form of life as a challenge to modern materialistic and atheistic culture, and a solution to all the problems of existence.
Without such scientific spiritual knowledge, both philosophical and practical, the purpose of human life, Krishna consciousness, will be lost and human civilization will gradually degenerate to animal life. It is a vision that he predicted would propel the Hare Krishna movement’s influence into the future.
