The items available in this section nearly all originated from Richard Thompson's personal files. As a charter member of the Bhaktivedanta Institute, Thompson collected a variety of documents from its pioneering days during the 1970s when the Institute worked as a unified project. These documents thus provide special insight into the shared vision of its founding associates, since continued by various chapters of the Bhaktivedanta Institute around the globe.
