Vanipedia is a collaborative website. It consists of 7 principal petals – 3 base petals, 3 creative petals and one portal – Vanipedia itself. At the moment there are five petals that are filled with content: Vanisource, where you can read the archived collection of Srila Prabhupada’s books, lectures, conversations and letters, Vanimedia, where you may listen and watch many audio and video clips of Srila Prabhupada’s lectures and conversations. In addition, we are now beginning to create articles in the Vanipedia petal and recently we started the Vaniversity petal with some crosswords.
In Vaniquotes, you can experience the thematic mapping of Srila Prabhupada’s teachings. We have created a very easy compiling process to populate the Vaniquotes petal. Compiling and studying in Vaniquotes is a penetrating way to absorb oneself in Srila Prabhupada’s teachings. Each Vaniquotes page contains one or more quotes and is organized under a system of categories based either on a theme, personality, scripture or on a key word or phrase. As Vaniquotes grows, content for the other petals – in the form of written articles, reference guides, and other educational material will naturally develop.
Vanipedia worked already on many projects. You can check some links below to get inspired and enthused in your life.
