NV TBT 04-24-14

New Vrindaban’s Transcendental Throwback Thursday – 04/24/14.

Each week we highlight an earlier era of ISKCON New Vrindaban.

This week’s challenge: In this photo, there are twenty five devotees and pretty much all of their faces are recognizable. How many can you identify?

Extra Credit: What year was this photo taken and where?

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

Technical stuff: We share a photo Thursday and confirm known details Sunday. Let’s keep it light and have a bit of fun!

Special request: If you have a photo showing New Vrindaban devotees in action, share it with us and we’ll use it in a future posting.
