We are always eager to see what will happen next, what the future holds!
In the mundane atmosphere such wait for the outcome of important matters is often accompanied by wrenching anxiety.
“This is the bodily business = eating, sleeping, sex life and always fearful, What will happen next? What will happen next?” 750423SB.Vrn
But in the spiritual Krishna atmosphere, the closer we get to Sri Krishna, the less material anxieties and the more real spiritual bliss we experience.
To travel on behalf of and with Krishna on the path of life means excitement only.
“The great transcendental adventure.”

ISKCON PERTH, Western Australia.
Dear Devotees and Friends,
ISKCON Perth is delighted to invite you again to the colorful and vibrant Annual Ratha Yatra (Chariot Parade) festival on Sunday 12 December 2021 at Forrest Place, Perth after an overwhelming response from the event held in 2019.
The Chariot Parade takes place twice with the first starting at 12:00pm then at 3:45pm, both originating at Forrest Place, moving along Murray Street mall to the Perth Underground station and then to the corner of Barrack Street and Murray Street through the mall and finishing back at Forrest Place.
The 2019 festival at Elizabeth Quay was a great success and attracted hundreds of locals. A lot has been planned for this year’s event with music, dance, singing and sumptuous vegetarian meals. We are very excited to see all of you at this wonderful event for the pleasure of our Deities Sri Sri Lord Jagannath, Lord Baladev, Subhadra Devi.
Ratha Yatra Festival History:
Ratha Yatra started 5000 years ago in the town of Jagannatha Puri, Odisha, India. This festival celebrates the return of Lord Krishna to Vrindavan and is held annually during the months of June-July to honour Lord Jagannath.
Usually, the Deities of Lord Jagannath, Balarama and Subhadra are worshiped in the temple, but on the day of Rath Yatra, They are taken to the streets so everyone gets the opportunity to see Them. Richly decorated chariots and resembling temple structures cross the streets of Puri Jagannath. This commemorates the annual journey of Lord Jagannath, Balarama and his sister Subhadra to Gundicha temple located 2 km from the main temple. During the festival, devotees from all over the world visit Jagannath Puri with a sincere desire to pull the cart by ropes. The soulful vibrations of the songs with drums, tambourines, trumpets and so on, accompany the procession and the chariots. The event is also broadcasted live on many Indian and International TV channels.
Festival of chariots was first held outside of India on 9 July 1967 in San Francisco, under the direction of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Srila Prabhupada, as he is affectionately known, is the founder-Acharya of the International Society for the Krishna Consciousness. Srila Prabhupada had the idea to hold the festival in the city of San Francisco, looking out the window from his room in Frederick Street. Today, this Festival is held all over the world, including major cities like New York and London etc.
During this festival, the magnificent chariot is pulled by devotees and well-wishers. The chariot carries the richly decorated deities of Jagannath, sister Subhadra, and the elder brother Balabhadra. Jagannath is one of the many names of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Sri Krishna. The Sanskrit name, Jagannath means the Master (Nath) of the Universe (Jagat) is a very merciful form of the Lord.

Excerpt from Your Ever Well Wisher by HH Satsvarupa Das Goswami:
“Calcutta, August 13th, 1965
The Jaladutta is a regular cargo carrier of the Scindia Steam Navigation Company, but there is passenger cabin onboard. During the voyage from Calcutta to New York in August and September of 1965, the cabin was occupied by ‘Sri Abhoy Charanaravinda Bhaktivedanta Swami’, whose age was listed as sixty-nine and who was taken on board bearing a ‘complimentary ticket with food’.
The Jaladutta, under the command of Captain Arun Pandia, whose wife was also on board, left at 9:00am on Friday, August 13. In his diary, Bhaktivedanta Swami noted: ‘The cabin is quite comfortable, thanks to Lord Sri Krishna for enlightening Sumati Morarji for all these arrangements. I am quite comfortable.” But on the fourteenth day he reported: ‘Sea-sickness, dizziness, vomiting – Bay of Bengal. Heavy rains. More sickness.’
