Projects - At Mayapur

Gauranga Prasada Seva

Gauranga Prasada Seva   Early in 2010, Food for life Mayapur started a unique project for serving full-meal prasada to visiting pilgrims called Gauranga Prasada Seva. The project was inspired, named and guided by His Grace Jananivasa Prabhu. Despite its humble beginnings, this project is aiming at serving full-meal prasada to all visiting pilgrims.
Gauranga Prasada Seva program was inaugurated on 14th February 2010 by His Grace Jananivasa Prabhu and
Gauranga Prasada Seva   His Grace Pankajanghri Prabhu, the head pujaris of ISKCON Mayapur. Currently, we are feeding prasada meals to at least 100 visiting pilgrims per day. Each plate of prasada consists of rice, dal, seasonal subjis and sweet rice. Occasionally, additional items are served. We distribute coupons to those who attend the early morning darsana in the temple courtyard near Conch Building. The meals are served in the Brahmachari Prasada Hall between 12 to 1 in the afternoon.
The pilgrims express their gratitude to the Lord and His devotees who have sponsored the seva by chanting the Hare Krishna mantra before honoring the prasada. By serving the pilgrims in this way, one accumulates great piety and spiritual benefit (sukriti) for this life and the next.
The Vishnu-smriti says, "The goddess of fortune Lakshmi resides in those who are charitable."
And if this incredible service is performed in a holy place like Mayapur, the credits are multiplied a thousand of times.

Pilgrims Prasada Seva

Pilgrims Prasada Seva   In India the culture is that when people visit any temple, they first take darshan of the Deity, hear some talk regarding the importance of devotional service (Hari-katha) and receive the Deity’s mercy in the form of His maha-prasada. Thus distributing prasada to visiting pilgrims is an integral part of Deity worship and Vedic culture as it has been practiced from time immemorial in India
Here in ISKCON Mayapur, we serve fresh, healthy, sumptuous prasada in small cups to pilgrims on a daily basis, twice a day: at 11 am and at 5 pm. On ekadasis, we provide ekadasi prasada (such as fruits and other non-grain prasada) as per standard Vedic culture. The pilgrims receive the prasada while chanting Hare Krsna, and as anyone can see, they become happy when they honor Krishna’s prasada.
Pilgrim Prasada Seva is very popular in Mayapur. More than 2000 pilgrims honor these small cups of Krishna prasada daily. During winter, it is commonly observed that there is long queue of hundreds of people waiting to receive and honor the prasada. The smile of satisfaction they have indicates their happiness in visiting Mayapur and relief from the fatigue of their travel.   Pilgrims Prasada Seva
Thus they show their gratitude to Krsna and His devotees for this wonderful gift. receiving the inconceivable mercy of Sri Sri Radha Madhava, Panchatattva, Nrisimhadeva and Srila Prabhupada Contributing towards feeding them prasada will factually help us receive Their mercy too!

Dhamvasi Prasada Seva

Dhamvasi Prasada Seva   This is a program to feed the dhamvasis khitchari prasada on a regular basis. This was inaugurated directly under the auspices of Srila Prabhupada during his lifetime. About 1000 dhamvasis per week are being fed full plates of khitchari prasada. This operates every Friday and Saturday at 5 PM. We are thankful to ISKCON Australia and BBT Australia for their continued support for this program.
 
Dhamvasi Prasada Seva   We are interested in expanding this program to feeding seven days a week, thrice a day. Kindly help us make Mayapur a hunger-free zone. One can please Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu when residents of His dham are fed prasada. We should also remember that this holy dham has been manifested by Srimati Radharani for the Lord's pleasure, and so feeding the dhamvasis is a means to please Srimati Radharani Herself.

Vaishnava Brahmana Seva

Of the four orders of human beings, the order of the Brahmana is considered the highest in the scriptures due to it being situated in the mode of goodness. A Vaishnava is higher than a Brahmana as he is engaged in the worship of Vishnu or Krishna through his body, mind and words. Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu specifically says that a Vaishnava is worshippable because of his chanting of Harinama: Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare / Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare.

It is an important principle of Vedic culture to feed Brahmanas and Vaishnavas with Krishna prasada, and this principle was practically demonstrated by Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.

This simple activity yields great benefit to the sponsor. Narottama dasa Thakura says, chadiya vaishnava-seva nistara peyeche keba,

  vaisnava
"Without serving a Vaishnava, who has got liberation?" Nobody has. And if this incredible service is performed in a holy place like Mayapur, the credits are multiplied a thousand of times.

Sadhu Santa Seva

Dhamvasi Prasada Seva   India is dharma-bhumi, the land of dharma. It has been the home for thousands of sadhus and santas, people who endeavored to enter into the spiritual realm and become free from the pangs of mundane existence. Such sadhus also strove to enlighten others in the same by dedicating their whole life for this purpose.
Renounced and devotional sadhus are engaged in preaching the glories of the Supreme Lord to the householders. They also selflessly advise the householders on how to conduct their lives in such a way that their environment becomes peaceful, so that they can progress towards spiritual life.
 
Dhamvasi Prasada Seva   Such sadhus generally lead a very simple life. As per the time-honored tradition, they accept whatever food and clothing that comes their way and are satisfied. Tirtha-yatra, traveling to holy places, is one of the most important activities of such sadhus. Mostly they engage in various spiritual practices therein.
And in such holy places, since time immemorial there has always been some arrangement to provide them with free prasada and modest accommodation. But with the advancement of this evil age of Kali-yuga, such renunciant mendicants have been neglected, and the world is moving towards irreligiosity and immorality.

Sadhu Santa Seva is one of our programs to help such neglected, but important members of the human society. Serving them yields us great merit. We endeavor to provide each such sadhu-santa with:
Prasada
Simple accommodation
Warm clothing
A book of Srila Prabhupada

Balbhoga Seva

Balbhoga Seva   Vedic culture gives special attention to care of children. If children are neglected and uncared for, their later years will be difficult. In Sri Mayapur, we often notice that children attend the early morning darshan of the Deities, mangala-arati. At that time, our Deities Sri Sri Radha Madhava are offered some sweets: sandesh, burfi, khir and laddus. As a mark of appreciation, love and encouragement, we distribute the sweet prasada to the children after mangala-arati
and japa of the Hare Krishna mantra. This program Balbhog Seva was inaugurated in 2006.
