We are glad to inform you of the recent exciting development that the roof on the first building of Bhaktivedanta College’s campus was finished yesterday, May 6 2008, an exciting and important moment for Srila Prabhupada’s movement. This building will be used as the College teachers’ and staff dormitory, but for an initial period it will be utilized to accommodate the ever-growing number of students.
A Bhaktivedanta College graduate receives a Bachelor of Theology accredited by the University of Wales Lampeter. For the near future we have plans for a Bachelor in Business Administration and a Master’s degree in Theology.
At the moment twenty five students from sixteen countries study at Bhaktivedanta College. Already we have application for thirty seven students from South and North America, Europe and Asia for level one to three of the academic year 2008-09. Twenty five of them are looking for a partial scholarship as they are from low income countries and therefore unable to finance the tuition, room and board.
We urge you to support this wonderful project whether by contributing to the building fund to finish the first building, or to contribute to the scholarship fund. Your help enables high potential students from all over the world to systematically be trained as Srila Prabhupada desired. We are seeking your help at the moment since we are under pressure to finish this new building before the start of the next school year in order to accommodate the growing number of students.
Today is Akshaya-tritiya, an important day in Vedic culture. The word akshaya literally means “to never diminish”, and this day is considered a very auspicious day to start anything from which you want the fruits to always prosper. Any donation given for the right cause is blessed to flourish and ensures prosperity to the donor.
In doing so you will be helping devotees to become mature, responsible and focused preachers, as well as leaders, managers and teachers in Srila Prabhupada’s mission.
Please contact us by e-mail and we will be happy to call you back and discuss ways you can assist.
