Janardhan Sevak Das: Mr. Laxman Bhandari, a student of Bhaktivedanta Swami International Gurukula, Raman Reti Mathura Vrindavan UP India and a Disciple of H.H. Srila Tamal Krishna Goswami Maharaj, who is known in the community as aka Laxman das (Vijaya Gauranga Das), and a Priest of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, Founder Acharya: A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada, have successfully completed the 10 hours of walk with barefoot without drinking or eating on Dec. 31ST 2011 - Jan. 1ST 2012. He had started his journey from Bhaktivedanta Cultural Center ISKCON of Phoenix to the Capital building in down town phoenix. His Marathon walk was for the Vishwa Shanti (world peace) during his walk he has successfully chanted 110592 Name of God.
On January 18th 2012 once again for the second time he has successfully finished his walk from Capital building in Phoenix Arizona back to Bhaktivedanta Cultural Center In Chandler.

as you can see in the Vedic Scripture that there are different kinds of Yajnas (sacrifice) out of all these mention in this verse of Bhagavat Gita he had done all of these Yajnas (sacrifice) for the pleasure of their Lordship to pray for the world peace.

dravya-yajnas tapo-yajna
yoga-yajnas tathapare
svadhyaya-jnana-yajnas ca
yatayah samsita-vratah

TRANSLATION
There are others who, enlightened by sacrificing their material possessions in severe austerities, take strict vows and practice the yoga of eightfold mysticism, and others study the Vedas for the advancement of transcendental knowledge. [BG. 4.28]

PURPORT
These sacrifices may be fitted into various divisions. There are persons who are sacrificing their possessions in the form of various kinds of charities. In India, the rich mercantile community or princely orders open various kinds of charitable institutions likedharma-sala, anna-ksetra, atithi-sala, anathalaya, vidya-pitha, etc. In other countries, too, there are many hospitals, old age homes and similar charitable foundations meant for distributing food, education and medical treatment free to the poor. All these charitable activities are called dravyamaya-yajna. There are others who, for higher elevation in life or for promotion to higher planets within the universe, voluntarily accept many kinds of austerities such as candrayana and caturmasya. These processes entail severe vows for conducting life under certain rigid rules. For example, under the caturmasya vow the candidate does not shave for four months during the year (July to October), he does not eat certain foods, does not eat twice in a day and does not leave home. Such sacrifice of the comforts of life is called tapomaya-yajna. There are still others who engage themselves in different kinds of mystic yogas like the Patanjali system (for merging into the existence of the Absolute), or hatha-yoga or astanga-yoga (for particular perfections). And some travel to all the sanctified places of pilgrimage. All these practices are called yoga-yajna,sacrifice for a certain type of perfection in the material world. There are others who engage themselves in the studies of different Vedic literatures, specifically the Upanisads andVedanta-sutras, or the Sankhya philosophy. All of these are called svadhyaya-yajna, or engagement in the sacrifice of studies. All these yogis are faithfully engaged in different types of sacrifice and are seeking a higher status of life. Krsna consciousness, is, however, different from these because it is the direct service of the Supreme Lord. Krsna consciousness cannot be attained by any one of the above-mentioned types of sacrifices but can be attained only by the mercy of the Lord and His bona fide devotee. Therefore, Krsna consciousness is transcendental.
