Thanks to the solar water heaters, Ishodyan building will now be saving a whooping 450 KW of electricity. That sums up to the amount of power required to run all the water heaters at Mayapur’s guest houses!
The efforts for making Mayapur dham consume lesser energy started three years ago. “Jayapataka Swami was very keen in making Mayapur Eco friendly and sustainable, so from there came the idea of having a solar water system, to,start with” , said Gopijanavallaba Dasa ,the man who laid the foundation for the solar heating project.
Anuttama Dasa emphatically stated that as Krishna’s devotees , ISKCON needs to lead the world in sustainability.”As devotees we love Krishna, so we also love Krishna’s property. Saving energy and being Eco friendly means we are doing Bhakti” , he added.He also reminded the audience that Srila Prabhupada always stressed on the fact that we should never waste Krishna’s energy.

Niranjana Swami: Yesterday, March 7, 2014, you left this world surrounded by so many loving devotees, loudly chanting Krsna’s names. As I was standing next to you, chanting and simultaneously hearing the kirtan, chanted so loudly and with such great fervor, I was reflecting on the letter you wrote to me early last year.
Among the many beautiful thoughts you shared with me in that letter, you mentioned a conversation you had with a devoteee in Kolkata, the same day you were diagnosed with cancer. Although this devotee knew nothing yet about the diagnosis (because other than yourself and your husband, nobody else was told what the doctors had said) he asked you the following question:
“Where were you born?”
In your letter, you wrote that you replied, “Oh, it is small place near Herson. No one knows it. I was born there, but it is not important. What is important is where I’ll die, I hope not at the place where I was born. I hope I’ll die in Mayapur.” Read more ›
