Since time immemorial, temples have served as centers of spiritual education, inspiration and for preserving meaningful traditions. It is said that culture or tradition are only one generation deep. Unless transmitted successfully from one generation to the next, there is the risk that these can be lost forever. A beautiful temple can serve as a boat to carry the wisdom of the ages across the ocean of time. Not only that, but we have a deep cultural responsibility.

“One who has taken his birth as a human being in the land of India [Bharata-varsa] should make his life successful and work for the benefit of all other people.” (CC Adi 9.41)
The ultimate benefit for all people is their spiritual benefit, and the ultimate legacy is a spiritual legacy. Whereas all material achievements are as temporary as castles in the sand, spiritual achievements are to one’s eternal credit.
How to secure your spiritual legacy? A legacy that will not be affected by falling interest rates, stock market crashes, or financial uncertainty? A legacy that secures the spiritual wellbeing of your previous and future generations?
Build a Temple!
“Whoever constructs or helps to construct a Vishnu temple will benefit eight generations of fathers, grandfathers, and forefathers. . . by building a temple one can attain the eternal, spiritual world (Vaikuntha).” - Vamana Purana
Would you like to build a temple in New Vrindaban and secure your spiritual legacy? Right now, at New Vrindaban, we are offering you this rare opportunity based on the sublime vision of our founder/acarya, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
The next step in this development is the construction of the Radha-Gopinatha temple, which is currently underway. New Vrindaban is already famous around the world, and the present need has made us even more passionate than ever about completing Srila Prabhupada’s vision. We invite you to join us to help fully realize this vision and be part of the New Vrindaban seven temples project, to create a truly extraordinary place of pilgrimage for all the people on this continent.
We have all heard how Srila Prabhupada at age 70, risking his life, traveled to America by freighter. After struggling in America for almost a year, he founded the International Society for Krishna Consciousness—ISKCON. Now, together, we have the rare opportunity to be part of a monumental and historic project. As Srila Prabhupada made this great sacrifice, we now have the special privilege of being able to make a small sacrifice for him.
It is certainly a great service for the pleasure of Lord Krishna and to our eternal benefit. And it will be our lasting legacy for our children and for future generations who will reap the matured fruits of love and devotion from this spiritual tree of New Vrindaban.
When one contributes towards temple construction, devotional service becomes an increasingly tangible and feasible reality in one’s life. Srila Prabhupada’s transcendental vision, in building temples around the world, is especially to provide an opportunity for fallen souls everywhere to acquire spiritual benefit by participation and charity.
