Things are starting to “get real”, as they say. On a bright day last week, members of a surveying crew descended upon 170 Troy Road in Parsippany, the site of the future home of Their Lordships Sri Sri Gaura Nitai. They have started the preliminary work of surveying the grounds for the first phase of the grand project of the new ISKCON of Parsippany Temple.
Although it was relatively quite at the site while the surveyors worked, this day marks the culmination of many years of hard work on the part of the devotees who have struggled to raise funds, design the plans, and apply for zoning permissions. Like the legendary ksatriya Arjuna, the devotees have had the Supreme Lord on their side and by the mercy of Srila Prabhupada and Sri Sri Gaura Nitai we received the permission to build this new temple in November 2013. It was not easy, but it was a sweet victory.
There is still a long road ahead and there will be struggles, without a doubt, but things are moving along.
Please join us in this monumental initiative to build this temple. It is YOUR temple where all members of your family can reap the immense spiritual benefits of service to the Supreme Lord.
