A Brief History of the MVT

The Mayapur Vrindavan Trust (MVT) was personally established by Srila Prabhupada in 1972. It is a fund to safeguard the daily worship of the Deities of Krishna worshipped in his major temples in India, especially Mayapura, Vrindavana and Mumbai.

This has been achieved by maintaining particular investments and properties as a source for emergency funds. Srila Prabhupada demonstrated the importance he placed in the Trust by depositing the majority of his personal daksina (donations) into the MVT account. One of his early investments was the first apartment building purchased near the ISKCON temple in Los Angeles.
