During the course of yatra, the holy jote resides on a Rath (chariot) which is pulled turn by turn by the seekers. As the Rath moves along, chants and recitals of Thy name fill the entire neighborhood environment. Recital of shlokas and aarti by Swami ji takes place before the jote is put on the chariot after Vishraam (rest) and after it is taken off the chariot for Vishraam. For the entire period of 40 days, Pravachans by Swami ji are discoursed in the presence of the holy jote. The yatra pans across the entire city and is covered by Swami ji on foot irrespective of the distances involved. The daily yatra culminates with the distribution of prasaad by Swami ji himself. Swami ji aims to spread the name of the God and educate people about the divine powers of Lord through this yatra. In line with his pragmatic approach, Swami ji often quotes poems by the famous Indian freedom fighter Ramprasad Bismil in his satsangs during the 40-day period. These poems, highlighting never ending love for his motherland, his unwavering determination to achieve his goal, and his fearless attitude, provide a more contemporary context to the seekers. They set an example for the youth to follow and lay out the values to abide by. Multiple such yatras have been undertaken by Swami ji both in India and the USA.
