Dean Russell MP, delighted dignitaries and thousands of guests at Bhaktivedanta Manor during Sunday’s Ramanavami festival when he unveiled his painting of the Srila Prabhupada standing next to George Harrison of the Beatles.

“Mr. Russell, an accomplished self-taught artist, is a long-time Beatle fan and is also deeply appreciative of Bhaktivedanta Manor and its many contributions to the community,“ explained Temple President Visakha dasi.  “He offered his painting to the Manor as an expression of the joy that emanates from Srila Prabhupada and his profound spiritual teachings”.

The presentation of the painting on that afternoon was very well-received.

Devotees and pilgrims alike were impressed with Dean’s skills, as well as the theme which brought about a sense of unity and identity at Bhaktivedanta Manor.

George Harrison donated the original Tudor building to ISKCON, in 1973.
