YATRA AND ITS PARAMARTHA

Scriptures embody several instances of great people including the incarnated Gods too undertaking yatras to expiate sins, like Brahmahatyas and Rajahatya. For instance, Balarama. the elder brother of Sri Krishna undertook Parikramana - going round the whole of Bharata Varsha, dipping in sacred thirthas and sipping holy thirtha in every kshetra for killing Romaharshana. Likewise Parasurama too went round Bharata Varsha at the instance of his father Jamadagni as Prayaschitta for killing Sahatrarjuna etc. In addition, Dharmaja was advised Parikramana to gain mental peace and was relieved of the burden of soka weighing down on him after Kurukshetra war. Vidura made yatra to all the sacred places without any desire. But, to feast his eyes mind and soul with the beauty of Nature and sanctity of thirthas and kshetras. Why even sages and acharyas went round to learn much of people and the grandeur of Brahma's marvellous creation was not Mahatma. The modern mahayogi benefited by his Bharat Darsan yatra on his return from Africa?
