On December 6, 2022, Iskcon Cidade São Paulo held another Ratha Yatra, which took Sri Sri Jagannatha, Baladeva, and Subhadra to Avenida Paulista, where thousands of people watched and followed the parade of the Deities.

Global Puja for Ukraine
On April 3rd, 2022 an international event took place for a worldwide puja invoking the blessings from Lord Nrisimhadeva's divine protection towards the devastating conflict happening in Ukraine. This conflict has affected the lives of thousands of Ukrainians and the number is growing every day. The conflict is not only affecting Ukrainians but is affecting all of us globally. The event felt like a must to help Ukrainians and pray for protection for all during these chaotic times. Organizers and helpers of the event stated they felt the presence of the Lord even in the days leading up to the puja. They felt a true sense of inspiration, a divine presence, and that they were being guided and moved throughout the process.

Rama Navami - A Reflection

Ram Navami – A Reflection
The auspicious festival of Ram Navami (the divine appearance of Lord Ram on this earth) is celebrated on 10th April 2022. I personally don't recall celebrating this festival as a child or teenager. The fondness and memory of any particular festival would be based on if it is ‘powerful’ enough to award a school holiday or can it inspire the family to go shopping.

Nityananda Trayodasi – Appearance Day of Lord Nityananda
Lord Nityananda was born in Ekachakra, a small village in the Birbhum district of West Bengal, around the year 1474. He was born to Hadai Ojha and his mother Padmavati. Nityananda Prabhu was born on the auspicious thirteenth day of the bright fortnight of Magha month. As a child, Nitai would love to enact the different pastimes of the Lord. So much so that the entire village would be immersed in the love of Godhead. Once while he played the part of Lakshman and remained unconscious as long the child who was playing the part of Hanuman did not bring the medicine as had happened during the original pastime during Lord Rama's time.
