From Leicester Maharaja went to King’s Cross in London to take a train to Radadesh, Belgium. Those were sunny and relaxed days, perfect to prepare for the upcoming Ratha Yatra.
Then, after three days, it was off to Heidelberg in Germany, where a very nice Ratha Yatra festival took place. Although it was a small Rathe Yatra cart, with small Jagannatha Baladeva and Subadra deities from Harinamadesh, it was perfect to take the procession through the shopping street in the inner city of Heidelberg. In this way the devotees, throughout the whole Ratha Yatra, proceeded through crowded streets and made lots of people hear the holy name of the Lord. The Harinama was powerful, led by glorious devotees like Bhakti Vaibhava Swami, Kadamba Kanana Swami, Ravindra Svarupa Prabhu and Vidya Vicaspati Prabhu. Enjoy!
