Yesterday the 40th annual Ratha Yatra parade was celebrated in New York with great pomp. Ecstatic chanting and dancing for miles was lead in front of each of the Lord's three chariots.
Syamali and I we're overwhelmed with gratitude to all the devotees who helped to coordinate and carry on this blissfull offering.
In addition, we got to visit the first temple of the Hare Krishna movement, The Bhakti Center, and the "Hare Krishna Tree" that our founder-acarya first started chanting under in Tompkins Square Park. :)
It was a very enlivenning pilgrimage and reunion with dear friends.
