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
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.
