Story of Rath Yatra – The Story of the Origin of Jagannath Ratha Yatra

Today, Jagannath Ratha Yatra is held around the world – the most famous being the one held at Puri in Odisha, India. Devotees find ecstasy in pulling the chariots of Jagannath, Balabhadra, and Subhadra. But have you ever wondered about the origin of Rath Yatra? There is a story regarding the origin of Jagannath Ratha Yatra and it is associated with Radha.


Sri Krishna had shifted to Dwarka and had happily settled there with his followers. Years later a Surya Grahan, or Total Solar Eclipse, was to take place. Sri Krishna decided to visit the Panchak Tirth in Kurukshetra and perform Snan (holy bath), Upvas (fasting) and Daan (charity).

Do Not Negate Pleasure From Physical Intimacy – Sex is Natural and Not a Sin in Hinduism

Sex thoughts are natural and do not try to suppress them in the name of religion and spirituality. Sanatana Dharma does not negate pleasure from physical intimacy. Sex is an important aspect of life on earth as per Hinduism. Hindu religion does not consider sex as sin. And stop taking permission and advice from religion regarding sex.

There are some Gurus who give this teaching – look only at the feet of a woman. Guess, these Gurus have not heard about foot fetish. No idea as to what advice they give to a woman regarding where to look.

Please do not listen to such Gurus because they are asking you to suppress a natural urge. You will either become depressed or a sex addict or end in the mental asylum.

The most beautiful thing in this world is falling in love and making love to your partner. You become complete then. You are becoming Shiva and Shakti – Krishna and Radha. In the heights of natural lovemaking, you become totally unaware of duality. You merge in the Supreme.
