Nice video. It is hard to believe that was almost 40 years ago (just a few months shy). It is great to see Sriman Jayananda Prabhu.

In the temple I see Yamuna, Shyamsundar, Harsharani, Subal, Aniruddha, Harivilas, Krishna devi, Bhakti jan, Lilavati, Nandarani, Devananda, and me. Initiated devotees have large red (chanting) beads around their necks, except Aniruddha–his are blue. Many of the devotees I’ve listed have their backs to the camera. The only devotees I can identify at the Rathayatra are Jayananda, Devananda, and me. Shyamsundar is driving the truck.

Some of the women have saris that Prabhupada brought from India as gifts. Lord Jagannatha is missing from the temple–He has a cold. The painting of Mahaprabhu in the temple on the altar, Srivas-angam, was done by Haridas, the first ISKCON artist, and the temple president of the San Francisco temple at the time.

I was wondering why Lord Jagannath was missing. I joined at the San Francisco Temple, on Frederick Street in 1969. I remember when I first saw the Deities my monkey mind immediately starting fault finding, but something inside urged me to keep quite, keep an open mind, and just bow down. My spiritual life had begun.

The video shows a very simple, uncomplicated time in ISKCON’s history. We need to bring back this innocence, so that more people can approach and accept Lord Krishna and Krishna Consciousness.
