The Mystery of Ratha Yatra



When people witness Sri Jagannath’s Ratha-Yatra or Festival of the Chariots they feel overjoyed to see something unique, even though they may not understand what the event is all about. They may wonder where and when this Ratha-Yatra first began and who are the brightly painted personalities placed on the chariots.
Although in general the answer to some of these questions are still a mystery, this book uncovers plenty of information gleaned from sacred Vedic scriptures, histories and local literatures.
Chapters include: The origin of  Ratha Yatra, Its Meaning and History, The reasons for Ratha Yatra, The glories of Ratha Yatra, Lord Jagannatha’s Magnanimity, The Tattva of Lord Jagannatha, the Form of Lord Jagannatha, Festivals related to Ratha Yatra, The descriptions of the three chariots in Puri, Ratha Yatra tithi, and Prayers to Lord Jagannatha.
