Braj Chaurasi Kos Yatra Devotees Rolling Over Sand

Braj Chaurasi Kos Yatra Devotees Rolling Over Sand at Karshni Ashram, Raman Reti (Mathura, Uttar Pradesh, India)

Karshni Ashram, Raman Reti about 1 km approx. from Nand Bhawan and we – ‘Braj Chaurasi Kos Yatris’ stop for lunch.

Karshni is a very nice location to visit. It is said during childhood Kahnhaiya (Lord Krishna) used to play at this very location. Devotees till-date visit and roll themselves within sands. The ashram’s vast land is sand as it is situated on the banks of the Yamuna. Many religious Guru, Saints visit Karshni Ashram for religious discourse and a large gathering of devotees present to listen to the same. Ramesh Bhi Ojha was present presenting pravachan (discourse).

And the journey towards Shanti Peeth, Nayi Gokul approx. 2 km from Karshni Ashram. Vallabha Acharya founded pushtimarg. Shanti Peeth is one of them. The temple window was open. We were watching the river Yamuna from the top of the temple. Vast and white sand.

Beautiful – said I. It is said Nand Baba after Lord Krishna’s birth crossed the Yamuna river from this location only.

Next was Shri Bhuteshwar Mahadev temple, approx. 14 km from Shanti Peeth.
