With this initiative, Bapu is on his quest to map the tapestry of this rich country, promote the rich cultural heritage by reminiscing the past glory, and is undertaking this yatra to embody the essence of Sanatana Dharma and celebrate the glory of Lord Rama’s name.


The yatra is being facilitated by two special trains namely Kailash Bharat Gaurav and Chitrakoot Bharat Gaurav accommodating over 1008 devotees. The exteriors of the trains have been embellished with rich vinyl wraps, showcasing the 12 Jyotirlinga Temples, Major Dhams of Sanatana Dharma, Tirupati Balaji Temple and scenes from Bapu’s village. Along with the Jyotirlinga, the devotees will get to experience other sites of spiritual importance, which will further enhance their experience.

The Katha is being organized by Bapu’s flower (devotee) Rupesh Vyas from Indore through the Aadesh Trust. He has been working tirelessly with IRCTC to make this Jyotirlinga Ram Katha Yatra a success.


Post Andhra Pradesh, the passage being led by Morari Bapu will move to Rameshwaram, Tamil Nadu. Moving forward, the 12 Jyotirlinga Ram Katha Yatra will proceed to Tirupati Balaji Temple for darshan. Seeing his visionary Yatra in action, Morari Bapu expresses his profound contentment, stating, “I am happy to see we have successfully covered four out of 12 Jyotirlinga and as we move along, the impact of our initiative is becoming more and more visible as people from far-away places are joining us to hear acumen of Lord Rama’s teachings and glorious past of our Sanatan Dharma.”


As the country celebrates Amrit Kal, this Jyotirlinga Ram Katha Yatra will enhance the understanding of India’s rich cultural heritage and symbolize the spirituality which is the essence of our “Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat”.
