RATH YATRA 2019
SHRI JAGANNATH MANDIR, THYAGRAJ NAGAR, DELHI
Pahandi at Shri Jaganath Mandir, Tyagraj Nagar, New Delhi
Lord Jagannath is the Lord of the Universe and is the Manifestation of Divinity in the present ‘Kali Yug’. It is said that only through “Nama Japa” one can pass successfully through the most difficult period of present ‘Kali Yug’
The uniqueness of Rath Yatra of Lord Jagannath is that the Lord Himself comes out of His Shrine to give ‘Darshan” on the Rath to His devotees/ followers without making any discrimination on the ground of religion, place of birth, caste, creed and sex. This is the most sacred festival which is celebrated originally in Puri Shrikshetra, but since it is not possible for everyone to visit Puri on the day of RathYatra, we, at Shri JagannathMandir, Thyagraj Nagar, New Delhi for the benefit of the devotees like you, organize and celebrate this Mahotsav in the same spirit, fervor and gaiety.
Like previous years, this year also the Mahotsav starts from 04.07.2019 (Thursday) and will conclude on 15.07.2019 (Monday). Pahundi Bije of Chaturddha Murti, Darshan of Lord Jagannath at Rath, Pulling of Rath by devotees, Anna bhog Prasad, Bhajan & Kirtan near Rath are the main attraction on the day of Rath Yatra journey.
