Without your support, this project could not go on! Our patrons are generous, and the donations we receive keep the project afloat and inspire us to work harder to serve the devotees. No pay has ever been taken for work here, yet untold hours has gone into the making of this website, believe it or not. Our server bill is around $40/month. With funding we can develop some really cool features. You can donate securely here. Thanks! :-)

October 2022 — Fundraising for computer

We decided to go ahead sooner and purchase a custom Raspberry Pi 400, instead of a MacBook Air M1. It will run Linux, and I’ll try to make a stand alone version of this website/archive. Imagine a next-gen VedaBase, on a small SD-card, pendrive or pocket computer. This is the future of D.A.S.™ Apps may be the current thing, but when the Internet goes dark, where do you go for spiritual information?

The iPad we got is more than capable for many tasks, including content creation and web publishing. So I don’t need a laptop for that, if Raspberry can get the job done. However, I plan to get a MacBook later when funds allow. Right now we’re more or less balancing operational cost, apart from the extra donations towards a computer. Thanks!

Update August 2022

Earliest model of Vanipedia, anno 2006.

A later, simplified model.

Details.

A couple of diagrams from over the years. It was always meant to be a complete Srila Prabhupada Archive, all drawn from the books with all kinds of cool features. Except, it took longer to materialise than I expected. I’m not a programmer, I’m a wiki person. Wiki means quick in Hawaiian…

2022 — A computerless year

I don’t know how many will read this, but none the less: 2022 was a year for mindful contemplation, and a step back in order to focus on our next move. We committed resources to our parent project iskcon.io, which for all matters of purpose will make this archive more useful.

Unfortunately, our website certificate has expired so I am hoping that a computer will come soon, so I can fix it…

Note from developer Sept. 2021

I’m revamping the website, updating for mobile and making ready for the next part of our strategy. Please excuse many things still not working properly, but I’ll get around to it shortly. As part of the update we have also ugraded our software foundation to reach millions of souls worldwide. We are now officially part of the iskcon.io network.

Hoping this meets you well, Haribol! :-)

We just made it supermore easy to search! Eg. “Bg. 10.7” or “Absolute Truth”.
