NV TBT 02-27-14

New Vrindaban’s Transcendental “Throwback Thursday” – 02/27/14.

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

This week’s challenge: There are fourteen devotees in the photo. Can you correctly identify them all?

Extra Credit: Why are they dressed up so colorfully?

Post your 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 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.
