Veda Priya and Bhaktin Teshika are teaming up with Jagannatha Ballabha Prabhu to compost part of Radha-Vallabha's kitchen scraps at New Nandagram farm.

It's a small, heartfelt step in greening Mahaprabhu Mandir. At New Govardhana in NSW, Ekendra Prabhu has been writing  more about what we can do to green urban devotee households.

'Whether or not the public are interested in the metaphysical depth of what it means to respect and sustain a relationship with our Mother Earth, surely we can appreciate that the sentiment is in the right direction. We might even be able to learn a thing or two about how to conserve energy, given the modern and usually urban settings where most members of ISKCON live.

Most of these tips just make good sense. Not only do they conserve natural resources; they save money by reducing the amount of energy required to run a household or a temple. Personally I feel that if temples could implement some or all of these methods we could educate our visitors in practical urban conservation skills. ISKCON’s founder, Srila Prabhupada, set such an example himself.'

Is Your Temple Green?

Last time I visited Krishna-Balarama Mandir in Vrindavan, I was impressed at the sight of a team of devotees cleaning Bhaktivedanta Swami Marg. Here is some of the background to this inspiring project.


Project Varaha

'Food for Life Vrindavana, not content with simply making an effort this Earth Day (April 22) is running several full-time environmental projects to beautify Krishna’s birthplace.

First up is Project Varahadeva, launched in April 2003. As well as cleaning the 11 km long Vrindavana parikrama route on a daily basis, its thirteen full-time employees distribute free environmental literature to local residents, and attend to other sacred locations such as Davanala Kunda, Brahma Kunda, Keshi Ghat, and Raman Reti.'
