Festival of Chariots in Liverpool

1st of July | Northumberland St Car Park, Liverpool


Open invitation to everyone to come and participate in the Lord Jagannath Rathayatra on the streets of Liverpool.

Venue: Northumberland St Car Park, Liverpool on Saturday, 1st July 2017, 10:00 am

Lord Jaganatha has again agreed to personally come and give darshan to everyone in the famous city of Liverpool on Saturday, 1st July 2017 at 10am.

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 metre high Ratha from Northumberland St Car park, Northumberland Rd, Moore St, George St, and Scott St, Liverpool. 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!

Meaning "O Jagannatha, Lord of the Universe, please be visible before my eyes."

Don't miss this opportunity to personally pull Lord Jaganatha and rapidly progress in your spiritual life!

Bring your family and friends along. All are welcome! Free Admission!
