Vraj Padayatra November 2018
By Parasuram dasa
This was our 32th Kartik Padayatra tour of Vraj, (the 12 forests of Vrindavan.) Usually in the Western World we go on Harinam, preaching to people who know nothing about Bhakti Yoga, or the Supreme Lord Krishna. Most people are not even vegetarian and have never heard of our principles of devotional service.
However when you go on Harinam in Vraj, it’s a different ball game, these people love Krishna and the Holy Name. They are certainly not ordinary people. The Vrajabasis are ready to sing and dance for the Lord with love. As can be seen in the video.
This year we distributed 31,000 books, “the teachings of Lord Caitanya”, and tonnes of Prasad. HG Loka Saranga prabhu a regular Vraj Padayatra devotee, had a serious car accident a year ago during the Padayatra in the Check Republic. He was lucky to be alive, he even had to learn how to walk, and now by Krishna’s mercy he is fully recovered, and again singing and dancing in the dust of Vraj. We were also fortunate to have 3 members of the Harinam Ruci Party.
We will have space next year for 3 extra devotees to join the party, you need to be a little physically fit, please email me to book a space —
Jai Srila Prabhupada!
