It is said in the scriptures that anyone who walks a few steps with the Ratha does not have to tred the thorny paths of the material world again and a person who pulls the chariot of the Lord Jagannath is relieved of all the push and pull of Maya forever.

Come to pull the Lord's Chariot & get Lord Jagannath's Blessing!!

Your servants in service of Srila Prabhupada,
