Connecting Devotees Worldwide - In Service Of Srila Prabhupada
|An Appeal About Us Donate Contact Us|
Hare Krishna dear Devotees, please accept my humble obeisances!
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
When I did not had access to direct Devotee association and Temples my ONLY source of spiritual income was ISKCON Desire Tree web site.
---Thousands of Lectures
So I am sure many of You also had and having such like experiences.
And I am sure there are still people who want IDT to survive for many, many years.
In order web site continue to survive and serve to people it needs to be supported also, doesn't it?!
Here is the list of some main expenditures of the web site: http://www.iskcondesiretree.net/page/donate-to-iskcondesiretree
If we - thousands of us could give at least 100 - 300 Rs per month we could maintain it.
True knowledge should not be sold for money. So web site is not selling anything for anyone other than making everything available free of cost to anyone in any part of the world.
But to show our gratitude and assist little bit we could spend some of our coins to IDT, couldn't we?!
So that people who are doing seva on IDT basically be focused on doing their selfless service rather than worrying about basic needs, aren't they?!
I felt uncomfortable to ask something from all of You! But still I hope many of You will take it seriously!
Thank You so much!
Your insignificant servant, bhaktin maral
Why not do this !
when any new member creates a new account , we can ask him if he wish to donate ,
we can provide him the info how and where the money will be used !
Also in every temple we can introduce about this website !
And ask for donation even a small amount like Rs5, Rs 10.
Every month a concerned person will send all the collection to IDT .
We can ask bussiness people to donate for our website ,
also they can link our website on their web page !
We people who are constantly in touch must form a group ,
50 or some and if each of us can donate Rs100 then it will be a good service.
I am ready for monthly contribution , Rs 100 is not a big thing .
Even eating one time meal in a city cost this much .
People spend so much on this and that ,
student going in colleges and schools ,can save pocket money sometimes ,
4,5 times in a month can get them Rs 100 , its not a big deal at all .
I request every person especially youth , we all do 100 bad things in a day .
Just do one good thing just save Rs5 a day for serving God .
He will note every penny you save for spreading his teachings .
We can encourage children coming to our temples to do this ,
but make sure their parents know what they are doing,because these days parents take otherwise.
After reading your post , i pledge to save something for this extra precious work .
Even people who wish to contribute but can not do that because they dont have lump sum,will feel it very easy to do this.So go ahead and and dont think , i am doing now at this moment .
Join me !
Hare Krishna !
:D Thank You so much Ashwani Kumar Prabhu!
Yes mataji, truly said. Thank u Ashwani prabhu ji for your kind step.
Now, I will also donate to IDT.
If possible, try to add the option of 'paying through net-banking'. Internet banking is very convenient.
I have maestro cirrus card which is not supported by paypal. So, now I will have to search to someone whose card is valid for papal transaction.
Also, please try to pin this post on top. This is very important issue.
your aspiring servant,
Thanks Dhananjaya Prabhu .
Together we can . :-)
hare krishna !
Hare Krsna Mataji
It seems like a good proposal to send some amount like 100 Rupees per month.
However, if someone would like to maintain His anonymity then how do you suggest this task may be accomplished?
According to Krsna, acts of charity should not be given up for they purify even the great souls.
Just reply to my query above as how to remain anonymous?
Thank You so much for Your replies dear Devotees!
For Devotees from India You will have to write to Vaishnava Seva Prabhu http://www.iskcondesiretree.net/page/donate-1
and ask for the bank details.
It is a bank of Radha Gopinath Chowpatty Mandir. Because Temple account is one so when one donates one should inform Vaishnava Seva Prabhu about his or her donation and give details so that he goes to the Temple and separate Your donation from Temple money and use it for IDT.
About Your name to be anonymous You have just to inform Vaishnava Seva Prabhu.
Hare Krishna Mataji,
Please Accept My Humble Obeisance
All Glories To Srila Prabhupada
All Glories To Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga
Does it support Net Banking transfer?
Wonderful Mataji. 100Rs a month is a great idea.
It would be nice if IDT supports direct online transfer from Account to Account.
I am not sure of how Paypal account works here. is it similar to direct online transfer? .
Hare Krishna dear Devotees, please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
Thank You so much for Your cooperation and desire to support IDT so that this web site serve to You all better and better!
The web site itself does not have separate bank account.
So ISKCON Chowpatty Mandir collects all lakshmi in their account.
Here are the bank details of ISKCON Chowpatty
A/c name :-Iskcon
Bank name :- Axis Bank Ltd
Type of A/c :- SAVING
Branch name : Chowpatty,Mumbai.
IFSC code: UTIB0001004
!!!!But one thing is there:
Once You have done donation You have to inform the amount of donation and Your name to Vaishnava Seva Prabhu (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that he approaches Temple and show Your details and get lakshmi for IDT. Otherwise that won't be used for IDT but for the Temple.
It would be nice if there is some automated message from IDT that goes as a reminder every mid month or month end to registered email address for monthly donation.
It will be very nice if we add some more payment options like ( i.e Credit/Master/Visa Card Transfer, Net Banking etc)
And also put account details of ISKCON Chowpatty along with notice on donation page, so that it will be easy for donar
