Rath Yatra celebrations at Jan Seva
Rath Yatra or the Chariot festival, is one of the holiest and oldest festivals of Hindus held at Puri, Odisha. It celebrates the return of Krishna with his brother and sister Balarama and Subhadra to Vrindavan. The idol of Lord Jagannath, Balabhadra and Subhadra are taken out in a procession. It is being said that taking part in the yatra is a step forward towards self-realisation.
Like every year, children and staff of Udaan also celebrated Rathyatra with great devotion. The children took joy helping their teachers and care-givers decorate the rath/chariot and make arrangements for the puja. Everyone participated in the puja and took turns in pulling the rath in order to seek the blessings of Lord krishna. Prasad was distributed to all staff and children at the end of the puja. May Lord Jagannath shower his blessings in abundance upon us.
