SLOKA OF THE WEEK:
Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 13.13
viśvambhara jagannāthe ke cālāite pāre?
āpana icchāya cale karite vihāre
viśvambhara — the maintainer of the universe; jagannāthe — Lord Jagannātha; ke — who; cālāite — cause to be carried; pāre — can; āpana — personal; icchāya — by His will; cale — moves; karite — to act; vihāre — in pastimes.
Lord Jagannātha is the maintainer of the whole universe. Who can carry Him from one place to another? The Lord moves by His personal will just to perform His pastimes.
Today is Ratha Yatra here in Portland, Oregon.
