WVA Donates Rickshaws to Clean Vrindavan

This event took place at the Subji Market in Loi Bazar, on 31st Jan. 2009, on the occasion of the WVA program to improve the cleanliness of Sri Vrindaban Dhama. We handed over 10 rickshaws of a total of 25 rickshaws that will be given to the local administration for collecting garbage. Amongst those who were present were top personalities of Vrindavan such as political leaders and green activists. This shows how the Vaishnava community represented by World Vaishnava Association is concerned to improve Vrindaban in different ways. Unfortunately, Vrindaban has changed dramatically from its original landscape. Nowadays, dirt tracks have given place to paved roads and the holy atmosphere is disturbed by many polluting factors, such as excessive traffic, and unsightly litter piled everywhere, even in the Yamuna river. No one who claims to be a Vaishnava should be indifferent to these pressing problems, in as much as the holy Dham is non-different from the Lord, which means that Dhama Seva is Bhagavan Seva and vice versa. This is only the first of succesive programs in this vein. May this small effort inspire others to do likewise.

Sri Vrindaban Dham ki jay!
