What Is Radha Rani Braj Yatra?
About Braj 84 Kos Yatra
Radha Rani Braj Yatra is an yearly Braj 84 Kos yatra that takes place in Braj region. Braj 84 Kos is a very famous event among Braj Bhaktas. It carries significant importance in Braj Upaasana. The objective of the yatra is to visit Leela Sthalies of Braj where Shri Radha Krishna performed various Leelas. Usually the yatra lasts for some days and every day has a plan to visit certain pre- determined Leela Sthalies. The organizer or the prime priest tells about the Leela associated with the Leela Sthali being visited.
History of Braj 84 Kos Yatra
As per Krishna Leela in 10th Skanda of Shrimad Bhagwat Maha Puran, Brahma Ji was not convinced that a little child known as Krishna is God himself. He could not believe his eyes when he saw that a boy who is steeling half eaten food not from the buckets, but from the mouth of his friends, and drinking Chhaachh (Butter Milk) from a stream coming right from the mouth of His friends, is God Himself. He thought He is a child with special powers. He wanted to test if He has Godly powers. To this effect, he planned to steel cows and His Gop and Gwaal friends. He did steel them from the forests where they used to take their cows for grazing and placed in deep sleep in the Brahma Lok.
Shri Krishna already knew about Brahma Ji’s intention and decided to break his Moh (illusion). He took the form of his Gop Gwaal friends and the cows. No body knew this fact for an entire year. Brahma Ji went back after an year to see how Krishna handled the situation. To his surprise, Krishna was still playing with all his same old friends and cows. Brahma Ji got confused. Prayed to God to take his confusion away. Shri Krishna showered his mercy on him and he finally realized that Krishna was God Himself.
Brahma Ji felt very bad and wanted to get rid of this sin. He asked for pardon from Shri Krishna but He explicitly told him that it was a sin committed towards Brajwasis and Braj Dham, even He does not have powers to pardon it. The only way to remove is to do Parikram of Braj Dham filled with deep sentiments (Bhaavs) for Braj Dham. Ever since then Braj 84 Kos yatra or parikram became a tradition of Braj. It is said that Braj 84 Kos can get your ALL sins washed aways if performed with the intention.
Braj 84 Yatras In Braj
There are a number of Sampradayas and Sects that conduct Braj 84 Kos every year or every other year. Yearly Braj yatra hosted by Vallabha Sampradaya is known to be the oldest at present time. It is being conducted for past 500 years. Most of these Braj yatras use buses, cars or other vehicles to do the yatra. Usually these Braj 84 Kos yatras span between 15 to 20 days and cost anywhere between Rs 10000 to 5,00,000.
There are around 250 primary Leela Sthalies in Braj that are visible today. However, the modern day’s Braj 84 Kos yatras do not cover all of them, only few popular ones are visited. These yatras visit mostly the popular destinations of Braj such as Vrindavan, Gokul, Govardhan, Nand Gaon, Barsana among others.
A Unique Braj 84 Kos – Radha Rani Braj Yatra
Radha Rani Braj Yatra was started by Shri Ramesh Baba Ji Maharaj in 1988. The origin of the yatra was the result of the endless mercy and compassion in the heart of Shri Baba Maharaj. It was very painful for him to think about the possibility of a poor bhakt to do Braj 84 Kos provided such a high charges for the yatra. There is no way a poor person or a detached saadhu who has given up everything for Krishna can perform this yatra. With this objective, he started Radha Rani Braj Yatra. This yatra was not named after him or any temple or Sampradaya. It was named after Shri Radha Rani.
Radha Rani Braj Yatra is unique because it is actually run by Shri Radha Rani Herself. Shri Baba Maharaj says that he started this yatra with total dependance on Shri Radha Rani in a sense that all the needs for the yatra will only be taken care of by Shri Radha Rani. He will not spread hands in front of any human being for anything. He firmly believed that the holy name of Shri Radha Rani and Shri Krishna has power of fulfilling all the needs of the yatra.
The first yatra was interesting. Everybody in the vaishnav world thought that starting Braj 84 Kos by a “just another” saadhu who lives on Bhiksha was a joke. And the so called “joke” would fall flat in a day or two. Nobody believed when Shri Baba Maharaj said that Shri Radha will take care of everything for the yatra. However, to everyone’s surprise, Radha Rani Braj Yatra was a huge success. People could not believe that a simple saadhu living on Bhiksha could complete the yatra with such a joyous, delightful way.
Radha Rani Braj Yatra is still being run with same spirit. It is a 40 day long joyous celebration exploring and experiencing Braj Dham. During the entire yatra, there is Akhanda Bhagwan Naam Sankirtan with melodious classical tunes. Over 15,000 people participate in the yatra every year from different parts of the country. There is NO cost on yatrees to attend it. Food, lodging, tenting, basic medicines, transportation, among others are totally free of cost.
It is the Bhagwan Naam that is the protector and care taker of the yatra. Shri Radha Rani is in charge of it. In the history of the yatra, there was NO effort made to ask for any kind of financial help or other kind of help from anybody. Doing so will be an shear insult of Shri Radha Rani’s mercy as per Shri Baba Maharaj.
Radha Rani Braj Yatra is the largest Braj 84 Kos yatra today. It is the ONLY Braj yatra that is totally FREE of cost. Now, all Sampradayas and Sects have acknowledged that Radha Rani Braj Yatra is of its kind and Shri Ramesh Baba Ji Maharaj only can run it. It is beyond their means and capabilities to run this yatra for free. Shri Baba Maharaj says that it is because it is run by Shriji not by him.
Radha Rani Braj Yatra starts on the second day from Dussehra and usually last for 40 days. Its starts from Barsana and ends at Barsana Gahvarvan. You are most welcome to join us at the yatra along with your family and friends. If you cannot do it for complete 40 days, you can do for days of your choice.
