It took thousands of people forty years to make Bhaktivedanta Manor the vibrant spiritual community it is today; and every single one of them played a vital part.
It all began with the vision of a pure devotee of Lord Krishna, and it continues today through the good work of those who are dedicated to him. The next forty years of the Manor will be in the hands of another generation: those who are sufficiently inspired by what he created to protect it, and give it to the world.
In these few pages we present a glimpse of the history of the Manor through a selection of photographs spanning four decades. Not every individual gets a personal mention, but we’ve included all the major events that helped preserve the Manor from its early beginnings and through its many challenges. We look forward to the next forty years and invite all our readers to join together in creating the future of the community.
