By Barshali Banerjee, Kolkata, Feb 26 : The International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) on Monday announced the progress in making their largest project for the Krishna devotees- the 'Mayapur Chandrodaya Mandir'- which is under construction and is going to be an international institute for Vedic literature for the spiritualists across the globe on the philosophy of Shrila Prabhupada, the founder of the ISKCON.
In the gracious presence of Alfred B Ford, the great grandson of legendary Henry Ford and the founder of Ford Motor Company, ISKCON announced formally the shouldering of financing the project 'Mayapur Chandrodaya Mandir' by him which he had been taking care of since the last 15 years.
"I first came to Calcutta in 1976 when under the assistance of Shrila Prabhupada I came across the philosophy of Lord Krishna and Mahaprabhu. I am extremely fortunate that Lord Krishna bestowed his kindness on me for taking care of this huge responsibility," said Alfred B Ford, who now is saint Ambarisa Das.
