Please join us for a very special fundraising event and talk by HH Radhanath Swami. This fundraiser is specific to the arrival of Sri Gaurachandra in Manhattan, at the Bhakti Center, to be worshipped for generations to come. We humbly extend this opportunity to devotees all over the world to participate by establishing Chaitanya Mahaprabhu in the heart of Maya -in the very city, on the same city block, where Srila Prabhupada started it all over 50 years ago. Sri Gaurachandra’s arrival to Manhattan is nothing short of historic. We want to prepare our hearts to receive the Lord, as well as come together in the mood of cooperation and sincerity. It will truly be a once-in- a-lifetime opportunity for all of us to participate. To honor Maharaprabhu in this way, and to usher in a new era of mercy in New York City, we invite you to pledge what you can and be one of the most fortunate souls who are able to make this historic event possible.

Our specific goal is to raise $75,000, which will cover the cost of Festival expenses and remaining building expenses we have to properly receive and house the Lord. To take part, you can pledge for a Gaurachandra Coin, of which there are three types. You can make your pledge right now online, or at the fundraising event itself.

Bronze Coin $500 (target to have 50 coins pledged = $25,000)

Silver Coin $1000 (target to have 25 coins pledged = $25,000)

Gold Coin $2500 (target to have 10 coins pledged = $25,000)
