Jayapataka Swami: Beyond the TOVP? Well we are developing a Master Plan in which we will have some theme parks and Srila Prabhupada wanted an university there with ability to give degrees – undergraduate and graduate degrees. Right now, we have three schools and several adult education institutions. So one follows the Delhi Board, one follows Cambridge and one follows the traditional gurukul. Aiyinanda .. Krsna das, he is a product of our gurukul. You know some mantras? Can you chant any mantras? So they have the yagnas, mantras, but they also learn math, writing, few basic things. So we have these three schools. For adults we have the Mayapur Academy, which is teaching deity worship. We have the Mayapur Institute which gives degrees – Bhakti Sastri, Bhakti Vaibhava, Bhakti Vedanta, Bhakti Sarvabhauma. Like that we have the Kirtan institute, I don’t know what the exact name is, they teach how to play mridanga, harmonium – like that there are different schools. Devotees come from all over the world and participate. So that is one thing we need teachers for the university, teachers for the existing schools and designers for the theme parks. I am also trying to implement certain programs, CDM, the Congregational Development Ministry, we are trying to develop, I am trying to take care of my disciples. So we have an E care system that we are trying to develop. Like that we have different zonal secretary program to take care of the zone and different programs. Some IT specialists, especially from the UK, Satyameda Gauranga das, he is helping me establish the programs, to help take care of disciples, to expand the ministry, etc. I started out in Mayapur with 5 or 7 devotees. Now we have about 7000! And Srila Prabhupada said, in the future we will have between 25,000 and 50,000.
