A brijabasi is a resident of Vrindavan, and it was appropriate that the
magazine of New Vrindavan was entitled Brijabasi Spirit. The Brijabasi
Spirit first emerged in the early 70's as a mimeographed 10-12 page
newsletter which was stapled together. By 1977 it had become a 20 - 30
page magazine which included black & white photos. The issues catered to
the community residents and copies were also sent to North American
temples. In 1980 to 1982 the magazine added a color cover, and by 1983 it
had evolved into a glossy magazine with a sophisticated layout and
colored photos throughout. The articles catered to Hindu and Western
visitors, highlighting the community's planned expansion and various
projects. By the late 1980' s the magazine had returned to a simpler
format. In the 1990's it appeared sporadically until its demise in 1995.
By the late 90's the community produced a one or two page newsletter.
