Vrindavan, 2017.10.05 (VT): Every year Shri Ramesh Babaji of Barsana leads a popular 84-Krosh parikrama called Radharani Braj Yatra. Making the journey by foot to the company of kirtan, devotees immerse themselves in the lilas of Shri Radha and Krishna while visiting the very places where those lilas took place.

A number of groups perform the Braj Yatra each year, but the majority of them use vehicles and cost money to participate. Shri Ramesh Baba wished to provide an opportunity for devotees to perform the Braj Yatra free of charge in the traditional style, and so the Radha Rani Braj Yatra began in 1988. Baba gave the Yatra Radha Rani’s name rather than his own, to let people know that devotees of all sampradays and lineages are welcome to join.

Shri Ramesh Baba says that he started this yatra with total dependence on Shri Radha Rani, in the sense that all the needs for the yatra would be taken care of by Radha Rani alone. Today the Radha Rani Braj Yatra attracts an estimated 20,000 participants every year. The 40-day journey is made in the traditional manner on foot, and is accompanied by 24-hour Harinaam Sankirtan.

Two hot meals a day, drinking water, morning tea with snacks, luggage transportation, a shared tent for sleeping overnight and basic medicines are all provided free of cost. Devotees are welcome to join the Yatra from one day to the entire duration of the pilgrimage.
