Friends of the Ashram,
Today is a very special day for Vaishnavas and aspiring Vaishnavas everywhere: the divine advent of Srimati Radharani! It was also on this holy day in 1993, that by the divine will of Srila Govinda Maharaj, we received the deed to the Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Seva Ashram property here in Soquel California.
So today on this auspicious day, we are beginning our fund raising program with the goal to raise $100,000 in 100 days in order to finish the plans and get the county government’s permission for our development and construction plans for the Seva Ashram in Santa Cruz (Soquel) California.
We have been working on these plans for many years and have about 75% of the engineering work already completed. Now we must finish that work and get the change of use permit approved in order to make this Ashram secure with the county authorities. After the permission is granted, we can start the construction phase.
Almost daily we are reminded of the necessity to expand our guest facilities here at the Seva Ashram. Devotees and other sincere seekers may come to visit for a few days or several months and unfortunately we lack proper facilities to house them. Srila Govinda Maharaj showed by his own example how important it is to serve the devotees and give them reasonable accommodations.
Many devotees around the world have much affection for our Ashram. There are many happy memories of visiting here and being here in the association of Srila Govinda Maharaj on his many worlds tours. We humbly pray that you can assist us in this endeavor, as it can only be successful with the mercy and help of the community of devotees.
Praying to be of service to the devotees,
How can you help?
Thank you !
