Nothing developed until 1996, when His Holiness Jayapataka Swami, ISKCON's governing body commissioner for Tirupati, revived the project. He appointed Revati Ramana Dasa temple president and asked him to wholeheartedly pursue the project's development. Revati Ramana was willing, but progress didn't come easy.

We began with a handful of devotees and meager finances" said Revati Ramana, "but by the mercy of the Lord we carried on, and in 1999 we held the ground-blessing ceremony for a magnificent new temple. Gradually more devotees came. With the help of a group of dedicated brahmacharis and theblessings of the Vaishnavas, things really got going".

To raise money for the temple, Revati Ramana employed a strategy that hadn't been tested in India: the sale of books on Krishna consciousness. Tirupati is purely a pilgrimage place, without much business or industry; the major source of livelihood for the local people is visitors.

Tens of thousands of people see the devotees and interact with them, and the devotees sell thousands of books every day. Book sales raised nearly sixty percent of the cost of building the temple.
