Shri Jagannath Rathayatra festival 2021.


This festival has been celebrated annually in New York City for nearly 50 years, and is celebrated in hundreds of other places all over the world. It originates from the Eastern state of Odisha in India, where pilgrims number into the millions each year.
The festival is a symbolic pulling of chariots bearing sacred forms of the Divine – pulling them ‘home’ into our hearts as we sing and dance in unity and love.
