Dearest Reader,

Before start of procession the horse guards parade past the chariots

Everyone is welcome to Rathayatra.

The procession assembles just inside Hyde Park – 500 yards west of Hyde Park Corner.

You will clearly spot the three colourful carts as you approach. There are three or four kirtan (singing and instrument) sections, each with dancers.

You can pull the ropes on the cart but please follow the instructions of stewards and staff.

The cart leaves Hyde Park promptly at mid-day and arrives at Trafalgar Square around 2.30pm.

This can feel like a long journey on a hot day and a OAP van is provided at the rear of the procession for the infirm.

Bring a bottle of water to refresh yourself along the way.

If you can, please come and enjoy the start of the procession before the Deities arrive.

London Festival in Trafalgar Square after the procession

The Deities come out of the temple to freely distribute Their loving glances to anyone and everyone.

Wherever the Lord appears He is accompanied by His beloved devotees and friends.

If you are also there then you will surely benefit eternally.

Thank you very much for reading. Look forward to seeing you at the festival!

Hare Krishna!
