NV TBT 01-16-14

New Vrindaban’s Transcendental “Throwback Thursday” – 01/16/14.

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

This week’s challenge: Put a name to the three devotees who can clearly be identified in the photo.

Extra credit: Pinpoint their location  and describe what they are doing.

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!

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.

Awesome! Two great actors. Loved watching their performances.

Locamangala and Sankirtana. I believe they are involved in the Ramayana production. Behind Sankirtana is Mother Madri and of course Samba next to Loca

This week a number of people correctly guessed the main three devotees in the photo.

This list included Samba, Jayadevi, Pitambara, Gaura Shakti & Syamakunda.

Here’s the info we have:

Who (from left to right):

Suta (left, youth wearing blue sweater, son of Samba & Isani)

Lokamangala (middle, wearing black & gold turban)

Sankirtan (right, wearing orange turban)

Guesses to ID the others included: Madri, Kutila, Sucitra, Vrindaban Chandra, Bhagavat, & Bhakti Tirtha Swami. We weren’t able to confirm any of them at the time of this posting so we left those open for now.

What: Performing an outdoor play of Jagai and Madhai.
When: Summer of ’86 – ’87.
Where: In front of the Peacock Aviary, near the Temple Lakes and Gaura-Nitai statues.

Photographer unknown.
