Apr 12, 2012 WATFORD, ENGLAND, UK (SUN) The photo above shows the Queen unveiling a beautiful tapestry which depicts Caitanya Mahaprabhu dancing in Jharikanda forest with the animals, a gift from the Krishna Avanti School to Buckingham Palace.
Bhaktivedanta Manor Temple President Srutidharma das explained to the Queen that Caitanya Mahaprabhu taught a philosophy that is "beyond all material designations and differences, and that through singing and dancing we should surrender our hearts to God".
The children also recited a verse from the Siksastaka, with a translation which explained that "in order to have peace and prosperity in society we need to imbibe three qualities: humility, tolerance and respect for all others". Srutidharma das explained that the Krishna Avanti School is based on these values, to which the Queen responded, "Isn't that wonderful!"
