About this Event

The Weekend will included kirtans, yoga classes, philosophy workshops, Q&A sessions and a special highlight, the annual New York Rathayatra Festival and Parade.
The Raythayatra Festival is a Bhakti celebration that dates back centuries and continues to be attended by thousands in India till this day. Every year it’s celebrated in New York City with a parade down 5th Avenue and a festival in Washington Square Park.
