Around forty North American youth aged 17 and up will spend this Christmas and New Year’s on the adventure of a lifetime. Traveling 7,000 miles all the way from Alachua, Florida to Cancun, Mexico and back on ISKCON Youth Ministry’s Krishna Culture Tour bus, they’ll stage festivals and change lives all over Mexico.
Nineteen ISKCON devotees were injured when a Vrindavan bound bus rammed against a tree after one of its tyres punctured near Maghera village falling under Vrindavan police station today "While eleven devotees were rushed to district hospital, eight were taken to Paras Mani Hospital. Nobody is in critical position," Dy SP Anil Yadav said.
On Thursday, June 12th at 12.30 PM EST ISKCON Communications Minister and Governing Body Commission Chairman has released an updated report about the tragic bus accident that claimed at least two lives of Russian ISKCON devotees who were visiting holy places in Northern India. In the meantime, ISKCON Russia has confirmed the names of the deceased devotees.
This summer, the Krishna Culture Youth Bus Tour toured Europe for the first time ever.
On June 17, ISKCON Youth Ministry’s fourteenth annual Krishna Culture Festival Tour set off on a 16,000 mile epic journey, during which it will visit almost every state and province in North America.
Thirty-three excited youth were on board, down from last year’s fifty-five due to the damaged economy. But on the positive side, regular “bus tourians” have bowed out this year to make way for new faces from countries as diverse as Italy, Bolivia, Canada, Ireland, and even Taiwan.
This summer, as they do every year, ISKCON Youth Ministry volunteer Manu Dasa and fifty-five youth will travel across the United States and Canada, performing at and helping set up eight Rathayatras around the country. But for the past three years, they’ve been upping their game.
