Service Opportunity

Swami - April 22, 2005 3:59 pm

We are not doing well financially this month. With our economy based solely on donations, some months are better than others and overall we do get by. Now we have almost run out of propane gas, the gas that heats, cooks, and refrigierates for Gaura Nityananda :D . Unfortunately the price has skyrocketed unexpectedly. It will cost us $1,100 to fill our two 500 gallon tanks. We do not have the money to pay this bill. So we are seriously rationing and in need of help. Remember, remuneration is tied to necessity. A glass of water has immense value in the desert.

I can make a contribution via paypal!



Radhanama Dasa - April 22, 2005 5:30 pm

i have also.

Babhru Das - April 22, 2005 5:59 pm

I'll check and see how much I can send, also through PayPal.

Nanda-tanuja Dasa - April 22, 2005 9:06 pm

I will see what I can do. Paypal as well.

It fills my my heart to see so many responses. Myself, I couldn't read this and just turn page, so I will also give my two cents (almost literally) after posting this. Luckily two cents of mine are worth three of yours.

i apologise for not having much money or a credit card to help with this, but

i must say that responses as quick as these are a sign of dedication and true

community spirit in the service of Guru and Gauranga!


It warms my heart to see these quick reciprocations in times of need!


Also, may i suggest that Audarya set up a patronage system-wherein costs for

running the community be outline and commitments be made as to contribute

monthly for this?

I just realized I made a donation on my birthday... how vedic! :lol:

Swami - April 23, 2005 8:50 pm

Thank you Kamalaksa/Krsangi, Syamasundara, and Chris for your donations thus far. For those interested in using paypal, go here http://www.swami.org/invitation/sevadonations.html.


We did get our supplier to fill the tanks :lol:, and they gave us until next week to pay for it. Thanks again all.

Sridama Dasa - April 23, 2005 9:13 pm

I'll make a contribution as well.

SashidharaDasa - April 23, 2005 9:23 pm

Dear Maharaja,


Dandavat Pranams.


I made my contribution through paypal.

I just sent a little, and I can send more on Friday.
