Madhavananda.com : Project Index frozen

Date
Feb 23rd 2008 - 19:15 GMT
Available at
Description
This project index is indefinitely frozen. It never generated the response I had hoped would follow from the target audience of the countless projects realizing how much was going on, and how insane it was for a one man undertaking. In fact, there was hardly any response at all. That in itself told me a whole long story of its own on the lack of a noteworthy ongoing need for much of what I've worked on.

Readers of Vraja Journal know more details about my ongoing winding up of the extensive services in favor of a more contemplative, internal life. I need to give more focus to my own practice and personal needs, cutting down on activity that forces me to compromise on aspects of my life that have risen to the forefront and keep me in a constant awareness of their priority.

Please see the entry link (below) for a synopsis of what's to follow with the undertakings documented in this index. Announcements of the few future updates that are still to come in the upcoming months before everything is finalized, all files closed and my online Gaudiya legacy archived, will be found at Vraja Journal.

In closing, I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude to all who had sympathy for what I tried to do for a shared good, and especially to those few precious souls who offered a helping hand at times of need. I wish that all would forgive the plenitude of shortcomings in my work and remember the earnestness of my intention with warmth. It was an offering of goodwill, a burden of love I bore, a contribution with which I strove to address a need I perhaps naively wished would have been there in a capacity greater than time proved it to be.

Perhaps the visions I shared with the countless open files listed here serve to inspire a future where the demand grows and justifies extended attention to practical endeavors that carry them to more substantial conclusions. May there be happiness, good will and wisdom of spirit for all.

Gaudiya Grantha Mandira : Grantha Mandira redeveloped!

Date

Description
The Gaudiya Grantha Mandira has, since a long time, been running on an old, unworthy site engine that hasn't had the flexibility to be adapted to all our needs. Moreover, some aspects of the outdated code just fell to pieces last autumn with a software update, leaving some aspects of the site unusable.

The phoenix is rising from the ashes at last. A new and wonderful Gaudiya Grantha Mandira is in the works, and a great deal of functionality is already online! Please take it for a test drive and send us your precious feedback.

Server Administration : Feedback form abuses

All across.
Description
Over the recent months, many of our sites have been subject to both feedback form spam (received by us) and form hi-jacking abuse for spam purposes.

Vulnerabilities have now been addressed across all sites, and I should now be enjoying a decrease of spam in my inbox. Those gremlins, they make me waste my precious time on unnecessary tasks.

Madhavananda.com : Decreased Activity

Date
Feb 24th 2007 - 16:14 GMT

Description
Those of you who've been reading Vraja Journal know that I've had to trim down my project activities over the last two weeks or so due to my wife's having undergone an operation, calling me to take on the bulk of her housework and so forth. I expect her full recovery to be taking anything from two weeks to a month.

With the project index online for a bit over a month now, I gather from the (lack of) public interest level that community participation that'd facilitate the giving of proper focus to the entire range of projects in the index is not a present day reality.

As such, in the weeks to come I will be working towards trimming my own participation down to the bare essentials, both to give more room to my own bhajana as well as to give proper focus to works that are particularly substantial. If you are interested in weighing in, please use the "Send feedback" links in the project entries.

Expect to read reflections on all things related at Vraja Journal, and news entries here whenever reflections crystallize into something concrete.

With repeated problems with the forum domain's DNS servers resulting from our lack of ownership over the domain and inability to secure the same, the Vilasa Kunja forums are moving on under a new domain:

www.vilasakunja.net

Please update your bookmarks and use this domain henceforward. (And please let your friends know, too.) I apologize for the trouble, but this is regrettably beyond my control.

Description
Since our move off the old machine to the new server, we've been having occasional glitches that have escalated over the last couple of weeks. Dave has been tracking down and addressing problems, and will be doing more maintenance work over the weekend.

Please report any glitches or unresponsiveness to us. When reporting, please try to give an exact description what happened, and more importantly the exact time of its occurrence to help us track down the exact cause from the server's log files.

You can use this site's feedback forms for reporting problems the project index is hosted on a separate server to ensure we have an information outlet even if things break down.

One can now send comments on blog entries at Vraja Journal each blog entry is followed by a send a comment link.

I intentionally haven't built in a public commenting system as some popular blogging sites have, as I wouldn't have the time to moderate such a thing. Everyone inspired to discuss something in the blogs with others is cordially invited to visit and join the Vilasa Kunja online Vaisnava community.

Translation : Bhakti-tattva-vijnana

Description
Bhakti-tattva-vijnana, the largest title in Sri Ananta Das Babaji's Tattva-vijnana series, is an excellent 100-page overview of the theology of bhakti, drawing extensively from the acaryas' writings. The original Bengali title is a very compact title with no words wasted, the bulk of its vocabulary heavily Sanskrit-rooted if not pure Sanskrit, to accurately convey the original concepts of the scripture.

On Babaji Maharaja's request in a meeting tonight, I have opened a file for an English translation of this title on this blessed day of Nityananda-trayodasi and translated the first page of the text. I would like to see the task completed within two to three months of time. May Nitai shower his good wishes on us all and may there be godspeed for this precious work.

With this, project priority for translations has been raised to 0.85.

Ever since the server move in October, the media links, I discover, have been down. They have now been fixed, and all media content has been archived in The Internet Archive for download.

In related news, if someone is interested in routinely checking for and reporting errors with our websites, it would be appreciated read more on that.
