ISKCON Tucson Seeks Camel for Padayatra

by ISKCON Tucson

Posted May 2, 2006

The temple and devotees in Tucson are joyously spreading Lord Caitanya's sankirtan movement all over Arizona, and the next step has been a goal in mind for several years. The plan is to have a padayatra traverse the cities of Arizona several times a year in a classic Conestoga wagon (seen in picture). This is an authentic wagon - not a replica - and it will certainly draw onlookers to hear the Holy Names. What we are searching for is a nicely bred camel to pull the wagon as we chant and dance alongside. The atmosphere in Tucson is similar to Rajastan, so a camel will do nicely and we have recently acquired new property that would have room to house the spirit soul. We are sending out a request to the devotees or those favorable to graciously donate towards the purchase of the camel. The price would be in the range of 3,000 - 6,000 US dollars. All donations are, of course, tax deductible. If you would like to donate, or to know more, please contact us at
