(1976). Sa-Vijnanam: Scientific Knowledge - early draft of proposed front cover


Sample cover design for a proposed journal intended for an academic audience with the title, Sa-vijnanam, that Bhaktivedanta Swami asked the early Bhaktivedanta Institute members to produce. The design was described as showing Vasudeva controlling the phenomena of nature, with reference to “higher order laws of nature.”

Bhaktivedanta Swami mentioned in a letter to Rupanuga (12 Dec 1976): “The cover for Sa-vijnanam is very good.”

Thompson commented on this cover in 1994: “We were expected to be very up-front about our preaching, according to Srila Prabhupada.”
