By the mercy of Lord Jagannath, on 10th May, ISKCON Canberra celebrated second Rathayatra festival within 7 months. A beautifully decorated Palanquin carrying Their Lordships Sri Sri Jagannatha, Baladeva and Subhadra was paraded through the streets of Canberra City. His Grace Rupa Raghunath Das and His Grace Pandu Putra Das lead the Rathayatra with their ecstatic Kirtans, and the evening program in the Temple. All the devotees actively participated in chanting, dancing, distributing transcendental Prasadam and helping with the preparations required for the Rathayatra.
ISKCON Canberra temple would like to express a big thank you to all the devotees from ISKCON Sydney for their association, and special thanks to His Grace Rupa Raghunath Das and His Grace Pandu Putra Das, and to all the devotees of Canberra for enthusiastic participation and support for the Rathayatra festival.
