Ratha Yatra 2017

Posted on August 26, 2017 by Anita dasi

Dear devotees,

This year we distributed books again during the 2017 Ratha Yatra festival in Jagannatha Puri. The weather was unpredictable. Most of the time it was pouring rain. Manjulali dasi and I distributed books, but not in the evenings like other years. Most of the people took a book, but some refused or ran away quickly upon seeing us.

When I went to Alarnatha for darshana, the pujaris there remembered me and asked were the kirtana party was. I told them that this year it was not possible for all of us to come. They made me promise that next year the kirtana party should again come to sing and do book distribution there.
