Padayatra Worldwide: On the Road with Lord Caitanya


Here in India our Lokanath Maharaja has successfully organized such a program and it is a great success. He has traveled all over India and everywhere they distribute books, prasada, and perform kirtana village to village. Each night they stop at a different village. We can introduce many millions of such carts all over the world.

Letter from Srila Prabhupada to Niyananda – Mayapur – 16 March 1977


Walking on tour of holy places in India with His holiness Lokanath Swami on padayatra, “a journey on foot,” was one of the best things I ever did in my life. What did it offer? A chance to distance myself from the vexations and entanglements of whatever was going on in my world. A chance to visit sacred places, especially in South India, following the route traveled by Sri Cairtanya Mahaprabhu. A chance to live simply and chant Hare Krsna, day after day, just walking down the road and chanting. A chance to meet India close up, going from village to village, getting to known what the people are like and how they live (“India lives in her villages”). A chance to travel with others – Indians, Westerners, young people, grandmothers, ISKCON devotees, pious people from outside ISKCON – who had sacrificed their time to travel with the padayatra. A chance to broadcast the message of Krsna consciousness all along our route. And most of all the chance to travel in the company of Lokanath Maharaja himself, an ideal friend and guide. And now Lokanath Maharaja leads us out on padayatra again, in the present book.
