I feel so fortunate to be present right now in Sri Navadwip Dham, where I am having the opportunity to personally witness the day to day progress of Srila Gurudeva’s samadhi mandir.
It has been so heart touching to observe the deep sincerity of all the vaisnavas present who are serving with so much love and intention. Through simultanious summer heat and heavy windstorms, the wizards continue to perform their magic, brick by brick, tear by tear and with great dedication. Devotees from all over the world anxiously join the workers to carry bricks and install little pieces of themselves within the beautiful samadhi walls.
By Srila Gurudeva’s merciful overseeing, the Bhakta Bandhava team has been able to accomplish wonders within just a few months. The construction has been under the direct guidance of Srila Gurudeva’s near and dear vaisnavas who are seeing that everything is utilized most sweetly and perfectly in the building of Gurudeva’s home.
Srila Gurudeva's samadhi mandir will be sanctuary for devotees all over the world. Future generations will come to this place to meet with this great personality and reflect upon the unfathomable gifts he has given. Modeled after Srila Rupa Goswamis Samadhi, small temples of all the great acharyas will surround Srila Gurudeva's samadhi.
We have the opportunity of a lifetime to offer our heartfelt love to Srila Gurudeva by contributing to the building of this great center of both meeting and separation. Although he has everything and does not need anything from us he is mercifully giving us the chance to remember and serve him.
I am in Navadwip for the next 3 months working with the Bhakta Bandhava team. Srila Gurudeva is so present here and everyday his home unfolds more and more. We are humbly inviting each and everyone of Gurudeva's disciples to make any heartfelt contribution towards his Samadhi Mandir. Your offerings will go directly into the hands of the Bhakta Bandhava managers who are buying the supplies daily and and paying the workers.
No offering is too big or small and certainly Srila Gurudeva is directly accepting anything that is offered with love. He came to our home and offered the wealth of his heart and now we can come to his home and offer our wealth and hearts.
Jai Srila Gurudeva!
