This Prabhupad deity was given by Kritakarma prabhu ACBSP in 1983, he was the first of this size made by Bhaktisiddhanta prabhu ACBSP just after Prabhupad's Tirubhav 1977. The picture doen't do him justice. The cloth around his neck, the tavi capsule and beads are all Srila Prabhupad tadiya. The small casket on the front of the pith between the bell and the satukopam dome contains; part of a flower that Prabhupad held, some dalh from a knee pultice he had in London, some of his hair sealed in plastic for preserving it, a small piece of cloth from his asan, some Ajwan seeds that he'd been chewing, and some of the last Tulasi maha-prasadam garland and gumcha that adorned his body as it was taken on parikrama to all the temples of Vrindavan directly before being placed into samadhi, then we have vraj-raj dust from next to his transcendental body from before the marble casing was put on the samadhi in Vrindavan. Also the jug and incense holder seen at the front right were given to me by a devotee who was told to distribute them after replacements were found for his desk at Bhaktivedanta Manor 1978 (no-one considerd their priceless nature back then)

This picture shows Everyone at home on their new Grihagarbha and new extended pith (seat). A Whos-Who is at the following  but it's not exactly conclusive. I still have to  organize a descent picture and the "roll over" facility and all the close-ups of each individual shila, so stay tuned. Just for now I'll give you a "line up" left to right in the picture that is under this.

Notice we also found a few extra pictures for the Guru-parampara, there's obviously more to slot in but that's all the room we have at present - sounds that there's another plan for expansion there eh!!!
