Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
I have present the idea about the ashram for vanaprasthas (in russian language – monastyr), on the Lithuanian Summer festival 2011. I saw, that brahmacaris can be more trustful for serving whole life if they will have opportunity to receive the nice help in they elder ege. In Tallinn we don’t have any support for the elder brahmacaris, and as I know – it is also same situation in others countries. Also I was spoken about the hospice, their devotees can receive the help, then they are leaving the bodies. we already was searching in Estonia for the land and house for that project, but , in 1,5 years – result is 0. And then I have heard about same opportunity in Latvia, of course, I want to be involved in that project, to take care about the brahmacharis, and devotees, who served in ISKCON many years, and need help.
Idea with land owner, like Chowpatty community, was presenting by Janaka prabhu and Atis, so i have no objection with this, and I personally like the social systems in Chowpatty, how they help devotees, and they have so much experiences with hospice, (I served in 2007 in Vrindavan in hospice under the guidance of doctors from Chowpatty).
Any case, I would like this idea will be manifested soon.
