• Invitation to the Ratha Yatra in São Paulo on 18 June 2023.
  • The Ratha Yatra in the mood of the gopis is when Krishna goes from Kuruksetra to Vrndavana.
  • In the lila of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, Lord Jagannatha is going from Jagannatha Puri to Gundicha.
  • Just by seeing Lord Jagannatha on the chariot, one reaches Goloka Vrndavana.
  • The reason for the Ratha Yatra is connected with the Snana Yatra.
  • The Lord is Parambrahma Bhagavan, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and is no different from Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
  • Achal Jagannatha is immovable.
  • Sachal Jagannatha moves and is Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu Himself.
  • He is Darup Brahma: Manifested from transcendental wood.
  • The demigods appear on these occasions to offer their obeisances to Lord Jagannatha.
  • Jagannatha means: Supreme Lord of the Universe.
  • He stays in Jagannatha Puri and gives His darshan to everyone as He has millions of eyes and ears.
  • Lakshmi Devi cooks thousands of dishes for Lord Jagannatha.
  • After the Snana Yatra, the Lord gets flu and after two weeks, He feels the need to go somewhere else to recover. So the Ratha Yatra takes place, a chariot ride from Jagannatha Puri to the Gundica temple.
  • At this time everyone can have His darshan and embrace Him.
  • In Brazil the Ratha Yatra also takes place, it is the same Lord Jagannatha, it is not different. This conception or realisation depends only on your faith.
  • Story of a Muslim boy named Salvey who had firm faith in his mother’s words (Lord Jagannatha).
  • With the eyes of material desire we will never have the darshan of the Lord, so we must look at everything and everyone with the eyes of divine love (prema-chaksu).
  • Meaning of Brahma Samhita sloka: Only by smearing the eyes with the transcendental kajal of divine love for Govinda can we realise the Lord.
