From Switzerland, Guru Maharaja made his way to Cologne (Germany) to participate in a great Ratha Yatra Festival. Many devotees travelled far-and-wide to get there too, attracted by the incredible line up of special guests namely: HH Kadamba Kanana Maharaja, HH Sacinandana Maharaja, HH Bhakti Charu Maharaja and HH Radhanatha Maharaja.
The four hour parade transcended the inner-city and then stopped next to the famous Dom of Cologne, where a good crowd of people were present. Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate after the parade, as heavy rain set in. It lightened to a dizzle but stayed with us almost until the end of the program. However, it didn’t dampen the spirit of the devotees who were eager to see the different bhajanas, dancers and speakers.
The Ratha Yatra concluded with an ecstatic final kirtana led by HH Radhanatha Maharaja. Enjoy the pictures!
