SF 50th Krishna Ratha Yathra Cart Festival Redefines Perfection

August 15, 2016. It wasn't only that a Proclamation from San Francisco's City Hall made August 14th "Festival of the Chariots Day", or that the actual procession of Deities enthroned on three highly decorated traditional Indian parade carts rope-pulled by devotees went through the heart of Golden Gate Park, with three thousand blissed out chanting bhakti yogis continuously belting out the maha mantram, or that the temple president revealed that he is a skilled percussionist, drumming intensely as part of the backup for world class sitar maestro Habib Khan who performed for the occasion, or the five course FREE prasadam feast which never ran out, but rather it is the fact that chanting Hare Krishna, staying centered, and letting all without take care of itself, is still the perfect way to be on the earth plane.  Today simply redefined what we've known for years.
