NV TBT 03-13-14

New Vrindaban’s Transcendental Throwback Thursday – 03/13/14.

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

This week’s challenge: In the photo, there are approximately 20 devotees whose faces are recognizable. How many can you identify?

Extra Credit: What are the names of the elephant and her caretaker?

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.
