New Vrindaban’s Transcendental “Throwback Thursday” – 12/26/13

NV TBT 12-26-13

It’s time yet again for New Vrindaban’s Transcendental Throwback Thursday!

Each week we highlight an earlier era in the history of ISKCON New Vrindaban and ask readers to identify devotees in the photo.

This week there are five devotees who can be named in the photo.

Extra credit if you can correctly determine the words painted on the oval sign at the far right side.

Share your best guesses on the “who, what, when & where” in the comment section at the New Vrindaban Facebook Page.

Technical stuff: We post the photo Thursday and confirm known details Sunday.

Good luck!

This turned out to be a tough one.

Several people identified four devotees, but no one was able to put a name to all five.

Also, no one was able to determine the words painted on the oval sign on the far right side for the extra credit.

Special thanks to Madhava Gosh, who supplied this week’s photo.

    Here’s the info we have:

Who (from left to right): Madhava Gosh, Samba, Kasyapa (Varsana Swami), unknown youth (top, rear), Gajendra (sitting), unidentifiable person’s back (walking, wearing chaddar).

What: Meeting Outside Radha Vrindaban Chandra’s Temple

Where: Bahulaban, New Vrindaban

When: Mid 1970s

Photographer unknown.

Thanks for participating. We look forward to sharing next week’s challange in the new year!

Special Request: If you have a photo showing New Vrindaban devotees in action, from the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s and ’00s, please share it with us so we can use it in a future posting.

[…] there was a picture of Samba on the Brijabasi Spirit Throwback Thursday.  Naturally it reminded me of him. What he will be best remembered for is that he was a trucker who […]
