Nectar of Devotion:
“One should not fail to observe the various festivals for the pleasure of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, such as Janmastami and Ratha-yatra.”
Virtual Rathayatras are a great idea. On line Kirtan, classes and videos. The only drawback is a virtual feast, nice photos of paneer subji, samosas, puris, shrikand, burfis is not quite the same as horsing into a real delicious plate of Prasad.
With this in mind, our main Rathayatra focus is to get the feast out to as many devotees and non devotees as possible. Along with the feast comes a free book , and a QR code to a Rathayatra video
The concept is to advertise the festival on social media, those who sign up have a delivery to their door , they eat the Prasad feast, while watching the movie of Jagannatha, then read the book and become Vaishnavas.
So far devotees have enjoyed this festival in London, Watford, Birmingham, Reading and neighboring towns
Video is from Reading Virtual Rathayatra, organized by Vishal Gauranga prabhu and Pratapmaya Nitai prabhu
Jai Srila Prabhupada, Jai Jagannath!
