The Spiritual Frontier — 1976 – Prabhupada’s Vision for New Vrindavan
Beautiful documentary film telling the story behind ISKCON’s New Vrindavan, a spiritual farm community near Moundsville, West Virginia. Produced by ISKCON Cinema in 1976.
Srila Prabhupada’s vision for New Vrindavan was to create a spiritual place like Vrindavan in India where Lord Krishna appeared 5,000 years ago, but in the United States of America.
For many in the USA it is not possible for them to go to Vrindavan in India to visit Krishna’s birthplace. So Prabhupada wanted to create Vrindavan in the United States. Prabhupada’s vision was a self-sufficient rural community depending on the cows, the land and Krishna. This film, The Spiritual Frontier, is a very good overview of New Vrindavan.
