Lord Jaganatha has again agreed to personally come and give Darshan to everyone in the famous city of Parramatta on Saturday, 14th May 2016 at 11 am. Ratha Yatra, the festival of the chariots, is a procession of Lord Krishna in his form of Jagannatha, Lord of the Universe. Traditionally held during the month of June/July, in Puri, eastern India, where hundreds of thousands of pilgrims sing and dance in the procession, the festival now takes place in cities all over the world. We are planning to pull this 2 tonne, 6 meter high Ratha from Prince Alfred Square to Church Street mall, Parramatta. We need a lot of people to come and help pull this Ratha. The Vedic scriptures state that anyone who sees Lord Jagannatha or pulls His chariots achieves immense spiritual benefit, attaining liberation from the material world and entrance into the eternal blissful pastimes of the Lord. Anyone who has experienced the Rathayatra has surely experienced ecstasy. The mood of the day is charged with devotion, excitement and complete surrender as devotees brush the streets before the chariot. The sea of people in the procession call out loudly for the Lord´s attention as they eagerly await their turn to pull the cart or sweep the streets. The entire atmosphere is one of happiness, joy and celebration. Jagannatha Swami nayana pata gami bhavatu me! "O Jagannatha, Lord of the Universe, please be visible before my eyes."
This year marks the 50th Anniversary of ISKCON!!! So this will be a special celebration Lord Jagannāth, Lord Baladeva and Lady Subhadra will enthrone the beautifully decorated huge chariot.
