The Krishna Culture Festival Tours (aka Youth Bus Tours) are organized by volunteers for ISKCON Youth Ministry to inspire young people in Krishna consciousness. We travel on adventures across the globe, immersing ourselves in the blissful life of Krishna kirtan and Bhakti-yoga, and sharing it with others through cultural presentations. Our goal is that of the sages of old, “sarva sukhino bhavantu,” may everyone become happy by connecting with the Source of happiness.
The next official youth bus tour organized through this website will be the Mexico Bus Tour, December 15, 2018 through January 1, 2019. Details will be posted soon.
