Foreword

MOSA purchased the Mahabharata collection by Jananjana Dasa before it miraculously found its way to the ground floor of the main building of Villa Vrindavan, where it is now permanently housed. The works seem to have been made for the walls of the renovated villa, without anyone having been conscious of how this match would take place. Maybe providence played a role. The whole collection perfectly fits in the spacious ground-floor rooms. When I walk through the rooms filled with Mahabharata scenes, I am mesmerized by the size of the paintings and the intensity of the anecdotes and stories they present. They carry us back to a time of great saintly warriors and sages.

This exhibit in Villa Vrindavan, just outside Florence, Italy, marks the opening of MO SA's second branch (its original galleries are in Belgium). MOSA hopes to bring to this beautiful villa in Tuscany a variety of sacred art, including Vaishnava and Hindu art. We are convinced that visitors will cherish their Villa Vrindavan experience: a blend of art, music, dance, spirituality, and amazing vegetarian cuisine.

MOSA renovated Villa Vrindavan's main building to house a permanent collection of ISKCON art based on the great epics Mahabharata and Ramayana and the famous Bhagavat Purana, sacred to all Vaishnavas. Also, MOSA renovated the Villa's old chapel to house temporary exhibits of devotional and sacred art.

I wish to transform Villa Vrindavan into a spiritual experience whose beauty and message touches every visitor. May everyone's heart become purified in this transcendental realm of spiritual devotion.

Some words of gratitude...

To the creator of this amazing collection and his friend who had the vision to carry it forward: Jananjana Dasa and Pandu Putra Dasa - thank you for sharing your passion, talent, vision, patience, tolerance, and joy.

To the leader who is slowly but surely putting Villa Vrindavan on the map of places to visit in Tuscany: Parabhakti Dasa - thank you for your determination and leadership skills.

To the devotees of Villa Vrindavan, who work hard to realize Srila Prabhupada's dream of making ISKCON an exemplary spiritual institution that uplifts humanity - thank you for sacrificing your comfort and security for this higher goal.
