NV TBT 01-09-14

New Vrindaban’s Transcendental “Throwback Thursday” – 01/09/14.

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

This week’s challenge: Name the three devotees who can be clearly identified in the photo.

Extra credit: With a little patience and determination, you might be able to ID a few more.

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

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

Let’s have a bit of fun and see who knows their New Vrindaban history!
