Festival of Sri Sri Jaganatha Ratha Yatra

Festival of Sri Sri Jaganatha Ratha YatraThree effigies specially brought in from India namely the Jaganatha, Balarama and Goddess Subhadra were paraded downtown Tabanan. Thousands of devotees from various parts of the archipelago and even overseas attended the procession. The event entitled the eleventh Festival of Sri Sri Jaganatha Ratha Yatra was opened by Deputy Regent of Tabanan, Komang Sanjaya, Saturday (Jul 13).

Chariot parade of Sri Jagatnatha to surround the Tabanan town covered a distance of about 2.5 kilometers. It started from the courtyard of Pancaka Tirta Memorial Park on Jalan Pahlawan leading to Jalan Gajah Mada, Jalan Parkit to Catuspata (central intersection). After praying in the City Park, all the participants continued the parade to Pancaka Tirta. Ultimately, it was performed the arati offerings and filled with the art show.

Chairman of the Committee, AA Ngurah Cakradara (Chaitanya Chandra Das), said the festival aimed to purify the universe, Bhuana Kertih, in order to reach harmony with God and the environment and ultimately to reach peace. “This event is held in Tabanan as the rice granary of Bali and the event deliberately brings together God to worshipers,” he said.

He came down in Tabanan, and then devotees pulled the chariot to get his grace. Other than the residents of Bali and outside the region, some participants from Singapore, Malaysia, France, the United States, India and other countries also got involved in the procession. “Right now, he (Krishna) comes down to earth specifically to provide an opportunity for worshipers,” he said.

Series of the events consisted of the spread of live photo, free medical services and prayers en mass in the Batukaru Temple, Tanah Lot Temple, and trinity temple in Tabanan town. (BTN/015)
