Hare Krsna to all Vaisnavas,

Please accept my humble obeisancs. All Glories to Srila Prabhupada.

In my previous article I shared the First Ratha Yatra in the Philippines. Now, here is the second Ratha Yatra which was held Last November 21 to 23, 2008. This Festival was so special because HH Indradyumna Swami was present together with Sri Phralad das. The filipino devotees were very Happy and Exstatic during these festivals. We are very eager to have the association of Advanced devotees so I hope and pray that in the future more foreign devotees can visit and give their association to the Philippine Yatra.

To all the organizers of this Festival of Chariots, congratulations for the job well done and also thank you for the mercy of Tirtharaja das for inviting HH Indradyumna Swami and Sri Prahlad das. And for all who participated in the festival, may Lord Jagannatha, Baladeva and Subadhra bless us all to continue spreading the mission of Srila Prabhupada.

Your servant,

Jaya Gopala das

    Prabhu,

    When do you date the first Rathayatra in the Philippines? We held a Ratayatra Festival in 1979 or 80 in Cebu that was very nice. We had a beautiful cart built to resemble the Jaganatha Puri temple with beautiful carved wheels, etc. Perhaps some of the local devotees remember that festival.
