Sunday Times Celebrates ISKCON UK’s 50th Anniversary
→ Dandavats

By Nicholas Hellen

With the release of The White Album, the Beatles were at the peak of their fame, and, as Gurudas puts it, "were being submerged by self-proclaimed Messiahs". When he and six other devotees attempted to make contact, their gifts, including a wind-up toy apple that played the Hare Krishna mantra, were binned by the band's gatekeepers. Their luck changed when the American rock band the Grateful Dead came to meet the Beatles in London and their manager invited one of the devotees, Shyamasundar Das, to accompany them. However, two members of the Hell's Angels motorcycle gang were also part of the Californian rockers' entourage. Gurudas said that as they all waited at the Beatles' headquarters, the Hell's Angels threatened to attack all four members of the band they had come to meet. Read the rest of this entry »

ISKCON Temple, Jaipur: A Window To The Spiritual World
→ Dandavats

By Arti

I have been a regular visitor to the ISKCON Temple in Jaipur, Rajasthan for almost an entire past decade. Rajasthan being my ancestral state, we make it a point to travel here once at least every year. To say then, that I have a personal affinity for this state, and the Jaipur ISKCON temple wouldn’t be an exaggeration… from being a simple small house many years back, it has been a joy to see the temple gradually evolve to a relatively bigger premise and stand in line along with some of its more famous contemporaries like Delhi.

ISKCON sets up immersive 360 degree full dome at Mayapur
→ Dandavats

Hare KrishnaBy Millenniumpost staff

Kolkata: ISKCON has set up an immersive 360 degree full dome at Mayapur to preach the message of harmony and world peace. The hi-tech theatre was officially launched for public viewing on the auspicious occasion of Narsingha Chaturdashi on April 29. It may be recalled that during her visit to Mayapur in February, Chief Minister had assured the ISKCON authorities every cooperation in their attempt to declare Mayapur as a World Heritage Centre. Full dome refers to immersive dome based video projection environment where the viewer is surrounded by the video projection in a hemispherical angle view. The dome horizontal or tilted is filled with real time or pre-rendered computer animations, live captured images or composite environments. Even though astronomy is the most common topic, there are no content limitations and is used for hyper realistic presentations, explained Sridama Das, a native of New Zeland and the main mind behind setting up of the theatre. "Top grade technology is used which is at par with the best theatres in the world to give a spiritually riveting audio-visual experience", he added. Read the rest of this entry »
