Braj Parikrama - The Spiritual journey on earth - 84 kos 84 yonisby Ritesh Jha Digital Marketing Manager
Chaurasi Kos Braj Yatra is the pilgrimage march that begins at Mathura – the birth place of Leeladhar Lord Krishna and takes you through the holy land of Braj. It covers all the sites related to childhood events in the life of divine yet naughty Kanhaiyaa.
‘Chaurasi’ means 84 in Hindi. ‘Kos’ is a popular unit in Indian subcontinent to measure distance. It equals about 2.25 miles or 3.62 kms. Hence, ’84 kos’ means a distance about 304 km. Most people cover the distance on cars or buses but there are some devotees who prefer to perform the pilgrimage on foot. About 80 million people perform the pilgrimage every year!
The long journey is a celebration in itself - a celebration of deep love and devotion for Krishna, purity and sacrifice of Radha Rani, His Childhood Friends and myriad childhood events that are associated with profound spiritual and social lessons that are timeless in nature.
