Here’s the last of my unpublished pics. (unless I find some more!) from Melbourne 1975. Srila Prabhupada came in mid-May and installed what were then the largest brass Deities in ISKCON and in fact, the largest brass Deities ever cast in Bengal–Sri Sri Nitai Gaura. It was a brilliant event because along with Their Lordships’ appearance, ISKCON Australia also revealed to the world its new headquarters at 197 Danks St. Albert Park. A beautiful 2 acre property that started off as a stately home, became a Christian Brother’s college and then a Heritage-listed monument, and finally a Hare Krishna temple.

More pictures and commentary from Hari Sauri regarding Prabhupada’s 1975 visit to Melbourne.

    A wonderful photograph. Who was the photographer and are there any more from that visit I can view?

    I believe Hari Sauri has a number of shots from that visit. If you check his blog there may be more there. If you contact him he might be able to point you in the right direction. You can go to his blog and the original posting by clicking on the title of the post above.
