NV TBT 04-03-14

New Vrindaban’s Transcendental Throwback Thursday – 04/03/14.

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

This week’s challenge: There are twelve devotees who faces can be seen in the photo. How many can you identify?

Extra Credit: What occasion was being observed and what festival was being celebrated?

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.
