This picture originated from Mother Mary Mae Maier, who got the picture from Faridpur Sri-Angan during her visit of the Ashram in 1950. This picture along with a large painting of Jagadbandhu and also SriPad Mahendraji was a part of Mother Mary Mae Maier's monastic life as a devotee of Jagadbandhu in her resident, named "The Lodge" at Mount Shasta, California.
