Between March 2014 and the end of 2016 – ISKCON’s 50th anniversary year – the Padayatra Worldwide Ministry is aiming to hold 50 padayatras, a kind of journey on foot accompanied by kirtan.
The first one in 2016 was a five-day affair held in the Indian state of Gujarat. Between January 15th and 19th, devotees walked from the ISKCON temple in Ahmedabad to Dakor, a Vaishnava pilgrimage site known for its grand temple of Ranchod Rai (a form of Lord Krishna).
The walk was organized under the guidance of ISKCON Ahmedabad temple president Jashomatinandana Das and Padayatra Minister Lokanath Swami, who organized ISKCON’s first Padayatra in India in 1976 and since then has seen Padayatras held in over 100 countries. iskconnews.org/ahmedabad-holds-5-day-padayatra-for-iskcons-50th,5358/
