Sunanda das (ACBSP):

Now in it’s seventh year, the annual Baltimore Rathayatra and Festival of India brings together devotees and friends of ISKCON from all the major Northern East Coast cities each year for ecstatic samkirtan, prasadam, preaching and transcendental bliss in the service of Srila Prabhupada and Lord Jagannatha right in the heart of downtown Baltimore’s world famous Inner Harbor. Thousands of plates of prasadam and hundreds of books are distributed to passersby who also get an opportunity to view and read the Festival of India exhibits and experience Vedic drama and dance, chanting of the holy names and other spiritually uplifting presentations. Representatives from major political offices present Citations of Appreciation each year and the event has now been proclaimed Hare Krishna Rathayatra Day by the Mayor of Baltimore, Sheila Dixon. This year the Baltimore Rathayatra will be celebrated on Saturday, May 30th. Contact ISKCON Baltimore at info@baltimorekrishna.com or go to www.baltimorekrishna.com for more information.
