Rathyatra 2015

OCC with support from many organizations has been celebrating the chariot festival of Lord Jagannath, popularly known as the "Ratha Jatra" for last seven years in Houston. This is the time of the year when people from Houston and surrounding cities come together in large numbers irrespective of their cast or creed to celebrate the appearance of the divine Lord who comes out from his sanctum sanctorum once in year to give "Darshan" to His devotees.

Chariot festival is a tradition dating back to 1150AD, almost 856 years with its origin at Puri, a city in the state of Odisha on the coast of Bay of Bengal. The core philosophy of Lord Jagannath is centered on the ancient Vedic philosophy of universal brotherhood and religious tolerance. In addition, the event also showcases traditional music and dance originating from India in general and state of Odisha in particular.

Free health Camp for Adults

For 4th year in a row OCC will be holding a free health camp for adults on the day of chariot festival from 8AM to 12PM.
