Dear Respected Vaisnavas and Vaisnavis,
Please accept my dandavat-pranams.
All glories to Sri Guru and Gauranga!
I'd like to invite you all to visit this new website at www.360darshan.com that has been launched recently, on the auspicious Day of Guru-purnima, July 17.
The website is designed to assist devotees around the world in their meditation on the beautiful and merciful Holy Dhama. It is the first and only world's website to date that makes it possible for everyone with a fast internet connection to have a virtual darshan of the most important holy places within Vraja and Gauda Mandalas.
The idea and inspiration to make this website came to me shortly after last Kartika when I was in Sri Vrindavan Dham. That was my first visit to India and to the Holy Dham. I felt quite determined to do whatever needed to be done so that I would never have to leave the sweet and merciful Dham. I also had some intuitive understanding that it must be through mercy only rather than external methods like trying to stay in the Dham physically, by my own strength.
So then and now, I personally tend to see this project as yet another sample of all-pervading and ever increasing sweet mercy of Sri Guru and Gauranga, Sri Radha-Krishna and Their beautiful Holy Dham. Please visit the website and see it for yourself. I am positive that since your hearts are much purer than mine you will be able to receive much more mercy, and thus you will also like the website.
I hope to see many of you in Vraja during upcoming Kartik. I assume, hope and pray that these virtual presentations of the Dhama will only increase our eagerness and readiness to leave everything aside and anxiously go back to where we belong- in the flow of the sweet and powerful Hari-katha of Srila Gurudeva and his parikrara in Vraja.
Aspiring for the service of Sri Guru and Vaisnavas,
