New Orleans Ratha Yatra 2009 - Day 1


Attracted by the Mayapurian hospitality of the New Orleans devotees, hundreds of devotees of various towns today have taken their journey to the Bayou.  Several months ago I was given an invitation to attend.   The invite was as follows, “The first 100 devotees who register will be given a free hotel room.”  However I think they have lifted that 100 family limit and now are making arrangements for whoever else may come to town. 

After a pleasant 9 hour drive to the southeast we arrived and were warmly greeted at ISKCON New Orleans.  We were able to catch the evening darshan of beautiful Sri Sri Radha Radhakanta and Gaura Nitai.   After registering and being treated to prasadam we were then treated with a large room in the Hilton Gardens hotel.  

Hare Krishna

Your humble servant,

Nityananda Chandra Das
