Hare Krishna! We are overjoyed to report that the very first contract for the magnificent new ISKCON Parsippany Temple was signed this week in the auspicious presence of Lord Krishna.
The site work is slated to begin within the next few days and it is a truly incredible milestone on this long journey. We are very happy that this has taken place on this 50th year of the founding of ISKCON in 1966. It serves as a heartfelt offering to His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada (ISKCON's Founder-Acharya) to whom we are forever indebted. The devotees at ISKCON of New Jersey have been working tirelessly over the past eight years to acquire the land, the permission and the startup funds to get to this incredible turning point. These efforts have culminated in the signing of this contract and the entire New Jersey ISKCON community is thrilled to see the project take shape.
Please join us in celebrating this achievement by participating in the upcoming programs at ISKCON of New Jersey.
