In a message sent on 21st June, Tony Blair, the Prime Minister of Britain, praised the London Rathayatra as an important event that enhances the multi-cultural diversity of British society. The Prime Minister's message is a clear signal that ISKCON and Vaisnava culture are being widely accepted by the British establishment.

The text of the message is as follows:

1O DOWNING STREET LONDON SW1A 2AA

THE PRIME MINISTER

I am delighted to send my very best wishes to all those attending the 33rd Annual Carnival of Chariots in London. I know that Hindus from all over Britain will participate in the Carnival which in fact is the largest Hindu procession outside India.

I am proud to be the Prime Minister of a country of many cultures and many faiths. I strongly believe that having a diversity of backgrounds and experiences is one of Britain’s great strengths.

Events like yours help us to celebrate and enjoy this diversity and I wish you all the very best for a successful and enjoyable event.
