Ratha Yatra Dublin 2013 posterDear Friends & Devotees: Our annual Ratha Yatra is now appearing as a dot on the horizon, with Lord Jagannātha's colourful chariot soon to be pulled again through the streets of Dublin.

As usual we will be assembling in Parnell Square, just north of the Garden of Remembrance, for the launching ceremony and words from devotees (and likely one of Dublin City's political representatives) at 12:00 noon. At 12:30 sharp we will begin our ride down O'Connell Street and on to St. Stephen's Green.

There we will have our park festival, with music, dancing, energising & spiritually sustaining kirtan, and a free vegetarian feast. For those who have not been to a Ratha Yatra festival before: simply plan to bring your friends and family for a lovely day in the park as well as the joyous march beforehand.
