Jagannath Rath Yatra in Chennai too

ISKCON Chennai’s Sri Jagannath Rath Yatra on Tuesday.

Chennai: Even as Puri witnessed Sri Jagannath Rath Yatra following a Supreme Court order, Chennai too had its share of the celestial experience Tuesday.

ISKCON Chennai conducted the Sri Jagannath Ratha-Yatra of Sri Sri Jagannath Baladev Subhadra in a small scale in view of Covid-19.

The deities placed in the small rath were taken in two circles around the temple premises. Only the temple residents participated in the festival.

As usual, the ratha-Yatra was accompanied by devotional singing. Various delicacies were offered to the Lordships during and after the Ratha-Yatra. Arati was also offered at the beginning and end.

The procession festival was webcast to the congregation of ISKCON Chennai through its live YouTube channel. Hundreds of families not only watched the procession but also offered naivedyam and arati as they saw the yatra.
