I just came across this website and would like to share this with you: http://www.pbase.com/ramacandradas/srila_p...reset_hit_count

I have never seen many of the photos before.

Very sweet! Many of these photos (all of them on the first two pages, and many on the next three or so) were taken in Honolulu in May of 1972. He came to install the Pancha Tattva and to give sannyasa to one of our Godbrothers. Some of the others were taken in San Diego in 1972.

Thanks for posting this link, Shyamagopal! I really liked the intimate feel in many of the pictures. A happy, relaxed Prabhupada, enjoying a massage, walking on the beach with just a couple of disciples, or sitting behind his desk just in a gumcha. I wish I had been there!

What a nice mood these photo depict. Thank you for giving us the link, Shyam Gopal. BTW, I believe photo #63, which shows many young saddhakas, also provides us glimpse of a younger, certain other, revered Swami. :)
