Wikipedia. With 30 million articles written by volunteers worldwide, the free Internet encyclopedia receives nearly 500 million unique visitors a month, and is the fifth most popular website in the world. Since 2011, topics and personalities of importance to Gaudiya Vaishnavas and ISKCON devotees have been appearing, with increasing regularity, on Wikipedia’s main page.
Today, for the whole day of June 23rd, Wikipedia is commemorating Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur’s 100th disappearance anniversary by a clickable reference to his article, complete with his photograph on its Main page. The Wikipedia section "On this day…" is dedicated to promoting events of global significance.
Vanipedia, a new program being developed by the Prabhupada Vani Research Academy based in Radhadesh, Belgium, represents a seismic change in the way we can approach Srila Prabhupada's teachings. Why? Because for the first time it enables lSKCON devotees web access to reference whatever they do with Srila Prabhupada's instructions by providing a means of easily sifting through the vast mountain of literature and teachings left by Srila Prabhupada.
