Chairman Ambarish Prabhu and his project team are progressing toward the building of the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium. You can view their new animation posted on, together with some insightful comments. It’s fascinating to see the existing buildings at Mayapur - like Srila Prabhupada’s Samadhi Mandir and the existing temple building - in relation to the proposed structure.

'Latest 3D Animation of the Vedic Planetarium Temple

Sri Mayapur Candrodaya Mandir, the temple of Vedic planetarium. This is an animation of the temple that will be built in Mayapur, India. Construction will begin in Oct. of 2008. Its’ dome will host a giant model of the universe as described in the Puranas such as Srimad Bhagavatam.'

Why is non-conventional spirituality just as - or more - beneficial compared with other beliefs?

Melbourne University's Department of Psychology is conducting research into this question. Devotees are invited to participate in the 'Beliefs &Well-Being Study.' Participation will involve attending one interview session with a researcher.

Word document: Beliefs Well-being Study

You will be invited to answer questions via an interview and simple questionnaires. These questions relate to the following:
• Your level of involvement in your spiritual/religious community
• Your current physical & mental health. Your relationships with people around you
• Any stressful events that may have occurred in your life recently
• Any spiritual or mystical experiences that you may have had
• Any “out of ordinary” experiences you may have experienced, eg. psychic phenomena, telepathy etc.
There are also two simple computer tasks. You will be asked questions relating to these tasks.

The total interview time is 1.5 to 2 hours. In order to cover your time and travel expenses, you will be reimbursed a total of $20 after completing all the face-to-face assessment interviews.

For more information or to participate, please call Michelle on 8344-3895,or email <>
