By Visnu Swami Dasa
In December 2012 I started padayatra without any experience at all. I thought that it might go on for a few days or even a month but by the grace of Krishna and the mercy of the vaisnavas we have been on the road for 5 years. I don’t know how it happened, it was like a dream.
At the moment we are walking in the Hyderabad urban area. Recently Bhakti Raghava Maharaj and Anandamaya Prabhu, in charge of the Hyderabad BBT visited us. On December 6th, to celebrate the 5th anniversary of our padayatra we distributed Bhagavad-gitas to the youth in the town of Chowtuppal in the Bhonagiri district.
So far in 2017 we traveled to 180 villages and towns and walked 1200 kms. We distributed 14 sets of Srimad-Bhagavatam, 2,200 big books, 1,500 medium books and 25,000 small books. On December 5th our Gita distribution was sponsored by a local devotee which, helped us give many Bhagavad-gitas away for free.
