Your Servant…

A picture of me chanting (Indradyumna Swami was chanting, hence I’m blissed out!)

Hare Krishna New Vrndavana!!
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Radha Vrndavanacandra appear to have brought me here to improve communications and act as the New Vrndavana community secretary. Actually I have no official post or designation in my mind, but out of duty I am accepting some title. I am simply your servant. My service description is gradually becoming more clear and soon I plan on informing you of the various roles or projects which I pray to facilitate. I will be an assistant to the current temple management team: Janaka Mahajana, Syamasundara, Radha Sundari, Caitanya and to the rest of the community.

You may have seen me wandering the temple grounds the first few days here. I was dutily performing my sadhana, observing the situation and patiently waiting for an office space (mostly). Having spoken to many of the blissful residents of the dhama and nearby I can understand that some, if not many, of you wonderful souls will feel hestitation upon hearing there is another “management type” person in the building, and second generation to boot. I can attempt to speak of my “Qualifications,” however, it appears to make more sense that I show you who I am by how I act.

Today I rose at 2:50 (earlier than usual), I chanted a majority of my rounds before Mangala arati and then I was asked to offer arati to Lord Jagannath, which I accepted. Fortunately I was already almost done with my rounds because I was asked to help in the kitchen during japa; Krsna’s mercy! I attended the full morning program and honored prasadam with Madhava Gosh Prabhu, who enlightened me about New Vrindavana’s web presence. I spent some time developing ideas with him and then headed to Janaka Mahajana Prabhu’s office to see how we want to approach our website, which has been hacked by Turkish militants as you probably know. Now I’m about to get the website back to normal and whatever else falls into my plate. I am in the process of redeveloping the website if anyone has any ideas feel free to call me at the temple x101.  I can also be found in the first office on the left throughout much of the day. Or you can email me at

I pray that I can serve you and bring our community into the harmonious wave of nectar found by keeping Srila Prabhupada and Lord Sri Krsna at the center of all activities. I will use this blog as an outlet of accountability, which I feel is required if I am to be able to develop loving exchanges and your trust.

 Please pray to Lord Krsna that I can stay for a long time and continue to serve you. Haribol.

Your Servant,
Arya Siddhanta dasa

P.S. I am no longer in Saffron.
