When the multi-colored mammoth chariot of Their Lordships Jagannath, Baladev and Subhadra will roll through the roads of Pune, its sheer majesty and beauty will at once stun and charm the hearts of the deluge of Puneites gathered to witness the grandeur plus extravaganza of Lord’s sweet and historic stroll. For the first time, after the stupendous installation ceremony way back in Feb 2013, the all merciful Lordships will set out in a castle like chariot to bestow their sidelong glances on on-lookers to inundate their lives with divine love and joy. We heartily invite you all to become a participant in this memorable journey and thus be blessed with an opportunity to pull the ropes of Lord’s Rath.
Lord Jagannath, Lord Baladeva and Subhdra Devi will be enthroned on the magnificent chariot reverentially. Rath Yatra would be inaugurated by performing Maha Arati and by sweeping the road with gold plated broom. With loud chants of Jay Jagannath, the huge ropes which are tied to the chariots will be pulled. The chariot would then roll through the streets wherein Thousands of people would be waiting en route to welcome the Lord and pull the rope; many witnessing the mega procession from their roof tops. Throughout the journey, the melodious kirtan of Hare Krishna Mahamantra accompanied with mrindanga and kartal (cymbals) will keep everyone enthused. People will chant, sing and dance together for the pleasure of Lord Jagannath. Prasadam will be freely distributed in large quantities. It is one of the biggest display of universal brotherhood under the banner of Lord Jagannath.
