Rath Yatra (25th Aug)22 Aug 2018, Posted by
ISKCON Founder Acharya- Srila Prabhupada wanted to share the fortune of spiritual life with everyone, even with those who for some reasons choose not to come to temple. In Rath Yatra, Lord Jagganath Baladev Subhadra themselves would come out of temple, riding on chariots to give an audience to everyone. ISKCON Punjabi Bagh celebrated their annual Rath Yatra on 25th Aug, 2018 Saturday with great jubilation and festivity.
The festival, centred around the pastime of devotees inviting Lord to visit Vrindavan from Kurusetra, and also in their own hearts, saw participation from thousands of devotees, who assembled for pulling the chariots, chanting, dancing and distribution of prasadam to general public. There was special provision for smooth flow of traffic and cleanliness after the festival. The colourful parade of devotees, blissfully dancing in groups, and chanting, and wishing to share the message of peace and love with everyone, was appreciated by public, who showed their interest by enthusiastically participating in the parade and buying the literature.
