Thirteen-year-old Ravinjay Kuckreja, from Indonesia, is a devotee of Krishna and a self-confessed “Nrisimha freak.” Radha-Priya Devi Dasi, eighteen years old, lives in India. Together, Ravinjay and Radha-Priya have created (, a celebration of Lord Krishna’s half-man, half-lion incarnation.

“I’m a big devotee of Nrisimhadeva,” Ravinjay says. “The Internet is a great way to connect with other devotees, to help each other maintain our Krishna conscious lives, and certainly the best way to spread Nrisimha’s glories.”

Without professional help, these two teenage devotees created their website to provide devotees worldwide with the chance to celebrate and learn more about Nrisimha’s fascinating and extraordinary pastimes.

“Many devotees are attracted to Nrisimhadeva but do not get the opportunity to learn more about Him,” Ravinjay says. “To fulfill their desire, we made a website all about Him. We have photos, articles, music, mantras, lectures, and more. It’s a dream come true for Nrisimha devotees.”

Ravinjay and Radha-Priya launched in January this year. They would love to hear what you think about their site. When you visit, click on the “Contact” link and let them know.

Jaya Govinda Carana Dasa calls his website Sri Mayapur Diary ( Originally from South America, he attended the Mayapur boys school (gurukula). Now married, he lives with his wife and baby daughter in Mayapur.

Jaya Govinda Carana created the website on his own to help devotees and anyone else find out more about Sri Mayapur and what goes on there.

“Devotees should know that Mayapur is the land of eternal festivals,” he says. “Those who have not been there can see how beautiful and active Mayapur is, and those who have been there can enjoy remembering Mayapur.”

He looked at other Hare Krishna websites and felt they mainly reported big festivals. He wanted devotees around the world to know about the activities going on in Mayapur every day.

“There’s always a lot happening in Mayapur,” he says.

Sri Mayapur Diary contains stories and photos of Mayapur—the land, the people, the deities, the festivals, the projects, and more.
