Recently devotees from Australia travelled to Peru. Some are visiting home to for a while and others visiting this ancient country and it’s culture for the first time, and all joining in a kirtan tour of a lifetime with Sri Prahlad and Madhava, the crowned kings of kirtan.
In a wonderful turn of events the bus top Rata Yatra was born when Their Lordships Jaganatha, Baladeva, and Lady Subhadra joined fifty devotees to ride on a double decker bus through downtown Lima. “It’s a great way to do Ratha-yatra.” Says Sri Prahlada. “No special permissions required!”
The double decker bus toured the main streets of Lima and went on to Barranco, where everyone came off the bus and joined in with Sri Harinam Sankirtan. After the Harinam there was a public talk. Sri Prahlada also addressed the attentive crowd.
There was Ratha-yatra by night ending in Chosica with a great big concert. “The kirtan by Madava was ecstatic,” says Sri Prahlada. “The famous Peruvian Jaganatha reggae band drew lots of fans. The band also practiced some Village of Peace songs which we played together. Sri Krishna Sankirtana ki Jay!”
Then it’s back on the bus for more bus top Kirtan.
All glories to the service of Peruvian devotees. Al glories to Sri Harinam Sankirtan.
