Why Should I Donate?
In February 2018, we started the Audio Seva with an aim to organise, clean and preserve the invaluable words of Srila Gurudeva, Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja. Read more here.
It has indeed been heartwarming to witness so many devotees coming forward to contribute in various capacities towards this seva. With the efforts of 800+ devotees across 43 countries, we have completed a majority of the Content Reporting for the 17000+ audio files that we digitized in 2017. Thereafter these audios are being edited and cleaned and uploaded on the official archive website - harikatha.com as well as released daily via the Gaudiya Rasamrita social media channels.
Many of the raw audio files are almost inaudible due to the following factors: low-quality recording, background noise, reverberation, hissing, high pitch, tape speed, and so on. For this reason, we have begun a RESCUE MISSION. Yes, a rescue mission! To literally rescue Srila Gurudeva’s vani from being lost by restoring each and every inaudible audio recording. In 2018, after eight months of interviewing 100+ audio restoration experts worldwide, we shortlisted two professionals who had the requisite skill to turn around these audio recordings (one to handle the complex recordings and one for medium) from being almost inaudible to audible. Please hear the before after results here.
Each Audio file costs USD 18 on an average. This presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for all the sons, daughters, and worldwide family of Srila Gurudeva to come together to preserve his legacy. Everyone can contribute either by serving directly or financially or by spreading the word.
In fact, the devotees have already begun raising funds towards this initiative. Some preachers are regularly contributing through the collections they receive as they travel, some working devotees have pledged a portion of their monthly earnings, and a few have even gone ahead and declared their inheritance to this project. Some have requested their friends and family for only one thing as their birthday or wedding gift: a donation towards Srila Gurudeva’s Audio Seva
You, too, can be a part of this historic and mammoth endeavour!
