Hawaii Rathayatra Announcement

by Vishaka devi dasi

Posted December 18, 2009

Once again — on Monday, January 18, 2010 — it is time for our annual Hawai‘i Rathayatra. On behalf of the New Navadvipa community I would like to extend a welcome to everyone to come and join us for this most auspicious and fun festival when Sri Jagannatha, along with Sri Baladeva and Subhadra Devi shower Their mercies upon people who have come from all over the world to the streets of Waikiki.

As is traditional for the New Navadvipa Temple, we are part of the Martin Luther King Day parade. The parade starts at 9 a.m. from Magic Island and proceeds towards Kapi‘olani Park, where we will have kirtans, booths and prasadam.

Please come join us to make this festival even more joyous. We do have accommodations and prasadam available for a very nominal fee at the temple. Also, there are hotels within walking distance to the Rathayatra site at a great rate. For more info on accommodations and transportation, please give a call at 808-295-3106 or email at
