Last Sunday ISKCON Toronto celebrated the Snana Yatra festival. Lord Jagannatha, His brother Balarama, and His sister Subadhra were given a special abishek (bathing ceremony). The temple room was packed with people wanting to catch a final glimpse of Lord Jagannatha. As for the next two weeks as their lordships have "mysteriously" contracted a cold and are quarantined and given intensive care by their pujaris. When the two week period is completed and they are feeling well again they will come out of their temple to give darshan to everyone during the Ratha-Yatra (July 19) by riding on large Chariots pulled by their devotees.
