YATRA AND ITS PARAMARTHA

MODE OF YATRA

A journey to yatrasthala should normally be performed by walking. Scriptures recount several merits of the journey on foot, the performer - yatri gets the merit of penance, if he goes to places by walking. Conveyance obliterates certain percentage of merit - he loses half of his merit if he presses into service any mode of transport and if he uses footwear and umbrella, he loses further. If he utilizes yatra for carrying on business, or undertakes with trade motives, he loses three fourths of the merit Above all, if he receives gifts, either at the starting point or during the journey, he loses all the merit - he becomes a spiritual bankrupt. But exceptions do operate here also. Physically unwell or handicapped persons are barred from the operation of the injections cited.
