A 59 year old man originally from Chatham, Ontario is walking across the country. Bhaktimarga Swami calls himself the Walking Monk.


Bhaktimarga Swami, who now resides in Toronto says, “I’ve walked Canada a few times. I’m on the fourth walk. I did a few other countries: Israel, Ireland, Guyana, Trinidad, and the Fiji Islands,” said Swami.


You can see him walking through Woodstock today in an orange coloured robe.

But the trek is not for fundraising, just to encourage the notion of pilgrimage.


“To check the unbalanced lives that we live, I feel there’s a need to become a little more introspective and walking really does that a part from the good physical workout you get from it.”


He walks 30 to 40 kilometres everyday saying it takes 6 to 7 months to travel from Newfoundland to British Columbia.

Daruka dasa: Here is another radio interview Bhaktimarga Swami did in Kingston, Ontario:

August 9th - Travellers: Professor Rick Shine and Bhaktimarga Swami

On today’s show, we will be talking to two guests, both of whom are travellers but who espouse distinctly different causes. 

We will begin the show with Roz’s interview with Professor Rick Shine. A biology professor from the University of Sydney, RIck Shine is currently travelling around Canada to talk about an invasive species of toad that he is studying, the cane toad. The cane toad has spread throughout Australia in the past century and has caused much destruction along the way.

We will then air an interview with Bhaktimarga Swami, a Hare Krishna monk who is walking across Canada. From Newfoundland to British Columbia, the monk hopes to spread the message about the importance of introspection through walking, especially in the busy work culture that has blossomed in our society.

Tune in to today’s show on CFRC 101.9FM at 5pm, through livestreaming on our website or right here.

Happy listening!
