Srila Prabhupada Mural

Posted October 25, 2009

Thank you for assisting me by placing my announcement that I was looking for a picture of Srila Prabhupada as a youth.

I am painting a mural for the teenage boys at my work which depicts several prominent male figures who have made contributions to the world through work in their respective fields and their outreach to humanity, often in spite of overwhelming odds. Each section shows what the person looked like as a boy and then a man, with an added piece representing his contribution. The bottom reads, "Every boy is a great man in the making." I wanted very much to include Srila Prabhupada, as I feel his mere image will touch the hearts of these troubled kids and start them on a pathway back to Krishna. A wonderful devotee was able to provide me with a photo of Srila Prabhupada which I have incorporated into the mural. I had promised to send this devotee a picture of my picture when it was done. Unfortunately I changed internet service providers and lost my contact information. I hope that you will pass these two images along with my thanks.

I so enjoyed painting Srila Prabhupada and the ISKCON temple in Vrindavana. I hope I have not intruded on any copyrights. The mural is not going to be sold, just hung up in the unit to benefit our residents and visitors.

With warmest regards,
