On Sunday, April 23, 2017, the Toronto Hare Krishna Temple officially kicked off the countdown to the 45th Annual Ratha-Yatra (Festival of India), which is scheduled to take place from July 14-16, 2017.  The "Launch Day", as it has come to be known, provides a chance for our entire community to come together to offer their prayers to the Lord to allow us to present a vibrant festival to the entire City of Toronto!  The main highlight of the festival was a special fire ceremony wherein mantras and grains are offered into fire.  Check out some highlight videos below (note: a full video of the event will be posted soon!):
