Welcome to LOK.MEDIA MONDAY! We plan to offer you the latest news from LOK.MEDA every Monday.

LOK.MEDIA: We worked on our website. We added a photo gallery, and added a new blog template. We made several blog entries. We started a new blog category, “LOK.NECTAR” for Krishna conscious topics as inspired by my personal association with H.H. Lokanath Swami Maharaja. I have been with Maharaja continuously for the past year and I feel that this is a good opportunity to keep an account of some of Maharaja’s nectarian instructions.

We have begun work on a 16 page article for Back to Godhead Magazine on the Glories of Sri Pandharpur Dhama. Today, Dinesh Prabhu, a professional photographer arrived in Pandharpur to begin three days of shooting for the article.

Yesterday, H.H. Lokanath Maharaja requested me to prepare a short video giving a tour of Sri Pandharpur Dhama. Taking help of Bhakta Amit Prabhu and Bhakta Dhaval Prabhu, we got some beautiful footage. We premiered it online during Maharaja’s presentation on Zoom to the congregation of ISKCON Bergen County, New Jersey, USA.

LOK.STUDIO: This week, our team of three carpenters were hard at work. They put in two window frames designed to accommodate double glass windows. The butterfly doors (2 doors in one door frame), are hung in their frames. We constructed a shed to protect our Air Conditioning System.

This coming week we are looking forward to the visit of HG Sri Krishna Bhajan Prabhu from Pune who will help oversee the wiring for the AC system, as well as starting the next and final phase of the AC installation, which we plan to complete by March 14. Carpenters will continue their work by applying veneer to the doors, and completing the third and last window frame.

Virtual Tour of Sridham Pandharpur

A blissful morning in the springtime of ISKCON Pandharpur. His Holiness Lokanath Swami Maharaja is here, and everyone is dancing and singing. The cows are happy and feeding their calves. Devotees from Thane, Mumbai are visiting. Prabhupada Ghat is a wonder of the world. Chandrabhaga River is cooling to the eyes and soul.

March 4, 2021:  Devotees in our Prabhupada Ashray ashram are asking when the wood work will be finished.  So much music from the sound of the electric tools trimming down the wooden doors!  Our carpenter assured me that only two more days and the doors will be finished.  4 doors.  16 hinges.  Then working on the third and last window.  Work is going on…


Work in Progress: Shed, Windows, Doors, Ceiling

March 3, 2021:  Nice pictures here!  Ceiling work continues with a metal framework installed. A two story scaffolding was constructed to build a shed to shield the AC system from the wind and rain. Carpenters are installing the double door and double glass window frames.  Doors are being made.

Window Glass plan

Feb. 22, 2021:  Our three Carpenters, headed up by Bhakta Sujit are hard at work making and installing door and window frames.  We are planning Butterfly Doors, which means two doors on 1 frame.  One door opens outwards and one door opens inwards.  Each door is in excess of 330 pounds!  Heavy!  The window frames are teakwood.  We are planning double glass.  Each window will have a 20 mm glass and a 24 mm glass, with the mercy of Lord Krishna.  Our studio designer, John H. Brandt is always just a whatsapp message away.  I send him photos every day and he guides us.

Doorway is covered in rubber before frame.

New Logo for LOK.MEDIA

Feb. 14, 2021, On this special day of Saint Valentine’s Day, we are inaugurating our new logo for LOK.MEDIA.  Special thanks to expert designer Sadhna Mataji for making the design.  The color is inspired by the saffron cloth of a sannyasi.  And special thanks for an unnamed business tycoon for inspiring the design.  He will get ajnata sukriti (spiritual benefit).  Please let us know how you feel about the new logo, and if you have any suggestions in our Feedback Section.  Thank you very much.  Hare Krishna.
