About BhaktiProjects.org

Bhakti Projects, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit religious corporation dedicated to regularly holding religious functions and supporting the mission of Gaudiya Vaisnavism around the world. In the Articles of Incorporation filed with the State of California, the purpose for the organization stated is, “To propagate, amongst the members and society in general, the beliefs and practices of the Krishna Consciousness religion according to the teachings of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu as presented in disciplic succession in the writings of A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada”.

First established in 1994 as ‘The Bhubaneswara Project’, the charity’s first function was to help Srila Gour Govinda Swami build the ISKCON temple in Bhubaneswara, Orissa, India. This was Srila Prabhupada’s last founded project before his divine departure in 1977. Raising funds from various individuals and businesses, the charity helped fund the construction of that large temple complex and helped to maintain its daily religious functions.

After the disappearance of Srila Gour Govinda Swami in 1996, the organization shifted its focus to serving the projects of Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Goswami Maharaja, whose founders recognized him as the leading spiritual successor of AC Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. The name was then changed to ‘Bhakti Projects’ in 2004 to more appropriately affiliate the organization with the worldwide projects. Since its inception, Bhakti Projects has served the worldwide society of devotees and general public by acting as the founders by raising and spending over $5 million dollars on the following projects:

  1. Purchase of and and/or construction of the following temples:
