My journey at the 28th Ratha Yatra festival

I went to the Ratha Yatra Festival on September 16th at Borisova Garden Park in Sofia. It started at 11:00 AM and lasted until 8:30 PM, and the best part was that it was free!

The festival was centered around a big parade with a huge chariot carrying statues of Jagannath, Balabhadra, and Subhadra. The chariots were beautifully decorated with colorful flowers and streamers, making it a sight to behold. People who were devoted to this cause chanted and danced while pulling the chariots through Sofia’s streets.

I joined the parade and helped pull the chariot. It was physically tough but incredibly rewarding. The energy of the crowd and the feeling of unity and celebration were amazing.

The festival wasn’t just about the parade, though. There was yummy food, great music, and lively dance performances. You could also learn more about Krishna Consciousness if you wanted to. I took the chance to learn about this spiritual practice.

The rest of the day was spent with fellow devotees, soaking in the spiritual atmosphere. It was a day of both inner and outer exploration.

The Ratha Yatra Festival is a special event that brings people together to celebrate Krishna Consciousness and experience the rich culture of India. It promotes unity and love among people from all walks of life. It’s an event that enriches the soul and leaves a lasting impression on the heart. πŸ’–πŸŒžπŸŒΌπŸŒŸ
