The real meaning of Rathayatra is the returning of Lord Jagannatha to Vrndavana. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu spent the last 12 years of his life in Puri experiencing intense feelings of separation from Krsna (vipralambha). The great wealth of the maha-bhagavatas are their qualities. By serving the great souls we may imbibe some of their great qualities. In their association our soul comes to its own true existence — always absorbed in the service and mellows of Krsna. Many came to Srila Puri Maharaja for inspiration, the personification of humility and earnest chanting of the Holy Name.
