Dear prabhus

Please find attached a photo of the Queen unveiling a beautiful tapestry which depicts Caitanya Mahaprabhu dancing in Jarikhanda forest with the animals, a gift from the Krishna Avanti School to Buckingham Palace.

Bhaktivedanta Manor Temple President Srutidharma das explained to the Queen that Caitanya Mahaprabhu taught a philosophy that is “beyond all material designations and differences, and that through singing and dancing we should surrender our hearts to God”.

The children also recited a verse from the Siksastaka, with a translation which explained that “in order to have peace and prosperity in society we need to imbibe three qualities: humility, tolerance and respect for all others”. Srutidharma das explained that the Krishna Avanti School is based on these values, to which the Queen responded “Isn’t that wonderful!”
