Over the years, devotees have visited Vrindavan, Govardhan, Ayodhya, Jaipur, Sri Rangam, Tirupati, Mayapur, Dwarka, Udupi, Rameshwaram and many other places.The number of devotees participating in these yatras have increased manifold i.e from an humble twenty in 1986 to a magnificent 5500 in 2015.
Kartik Yatras give devotees an opportunity to perform the devotional activity of shravanam (hearing) of hari-katha. Shravanam done in the association of devotees, in a holy dhama, is said to award one immense devotional merits.
With thousands of devotees participating, these yatras give devotees a wonderful opportunity to hear hari-katha and chant the holy names with complete absorption in an environment free from one’s regular household and professional anxieties.
This year, the Yatra is conducted at the Holy Dham of Shri Jagannath Puri, also known as the Purushottam Kshetra.
In Purusottama-ksetra Nilacala, by the shore of the salt-water ocean, the Lord of the universes (Jagannatha) is splendidly manifested in a spiritual form of wood.
