Shri Kedarnath Jyotirling Trip


Shri Kedarnath Jyotirling Trip 



The snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas are believed to be the abode of the deity, hence the Himalayas are called Dev Bhoomi.CharDham, the main pilgrimage site for Hindus in the state of Uttarakhand in the Himalayas, consists of Shri Badrinathji, Kedarnathji, Gangotri and Yamunotri.



Apart from these, a temple of some deity is also located here on every 3KM. Shri Kedarnath ji is one of the main twelve Jyotirlingas of India whose divine temple is situated on the high peak of Kedar in the Himalayas.It is famous about the temple of Kedarnath Jyotirlinga that this ancient temple was built by the Pandavas, which is situated at a height of 11750 feet of the mountain.


According to the Puranas, Kedar means Mahish i.e. the back of buffalo which is prevalent about when the Pandavas reached Kedarghati in search of Lord Shiva, when Lord Shiva saw them coming to Kedarkhand, they went to Guptkashi and went some distance and took the form of buffalo variance. Started doing, because Lord Shiva did not want to give direct darshan to the Pandavas who destroyed their family.


When the Pandavas came to know about this episode by Akashwani and recognized Lord Shiva as Mahish and started following them, then Lord Shiva, who was buffalo in form, got trapped in a marshy earth to go underground but the great mighty Bhima had his tail Got it, now God had already been absorbed into the earth, only the remaining torso of God remained on the earth, which later became the rock and started to be worshiped as Jyotirlinga. .


It is said that the head of Lord Shiva contained in the earth appeared in the valleys of Himalayas, just miles away from Kedarghati, which is worshiped as Pashupatinath in Kathmandu, capital of Nepal today.The height of Shri Kedarnath temple is 80 feet, which is built on a large square platform, it is astonishing to see the temple how in ancient times when there was a lack of mechanical objects, then how this temple was built with such large and strong folded stones. must have been done ?

The modern temple was built here by Jagadguru Shankaracharya ji, which stands unmatched even today. It is said that the temple of Kedarnath remains under snow for six months in Kedarghati. There is no difference on the walls of this temple even when the temperature is below zero and the biggest example is that in the horrific tragedy of 2013, this temple of Lord Kedar remained safe even when everything collapsed in Kedarghati.


Miraculously, a large rock, which flowed in the flood of Mandakini, stopped behind the temple which is called Bhimshila today and which was considered to be the reason for the security of the Kedarnath temple at the time of disaster and this is why the devotees who came to visit the Kedarnath temple This stone is also worshiped with full faith.

Inside the Kedarnath temple, there are statues of five Pandavas including Draupadi on the walls all around. In the middle, the self-styled Jyotirlinga of Lord Kedar is present in the form of ungainly, on which devotees apply a paste of ghee and offer water, flowers and bilpatras. There is a huge statue of Nandi outside the temple, which is world famous as a ride of Lord Shiva.


A little hill above the Kedarnath temple is visible, which is called the temple of Bhairav Nathji. After Diwali, the doors of Kedarnath ji are closed for the next six months and shortly after that Bhairavnath ji too.During the winter when the snow starts here, Kedarnath ji's doli is taken ahead of Sonprayag to Ukhimath near Guptkashi and in winter, Lord Ukhimath sees his devotees.


I had left from Lyncholi in the morning for Kedarnath ji, this is the last and difficult climb after which we reach the court of our God. On the way again, I had to cross two big glaciers.Shortly I reached base camp. Now the magnificent form of nature was in front of me, as the sun was rising today, its rays were shining on the small of icy mountains, the darkness in Kedarghati was slowly sorting and the light of Suryadev was manifesting the freshness of a new dawn. , Now even a little relief was started in winter.



Due to rest in the middle of the night, now my steps were not ready at all to move forward again, but the longing to meet my God was stopping the steps from doing their arbitrariness and the courage was supporting me even with my tiredness.

After walking from the earth to the clouds, it is difficult to describe the magnificent view of nature that I was seeing at this time. Just yesterday, the flowing Mandakini river and these high mountains standing all around fascinate the mind and as the sunlight was entering the Kedarghati it really seemed as if running away from the white snow These frozen mountains started shining like silver.
In fact, by coming to the abode of Baba Kedarnath, the mind gets a real heavenly experience. As the day gets out and the weather clears, the helicopter service also starts, after seeing these helicopters, I got an idea that what the helicopter knows about Kedarnath. Just got off his car and sat in a helicopter and reached the temple of Kedar Baba in 10 minutes, and then came back and reached his car.

Meanwhile, he visited Gaurikund, neither did he experience the difficult climb leading up to Baba, and did not even take Baba's name once during the climb. They are also deprived of a strange power and elation that comes from Baba's name. Neither do they see the magnificent high waterfalls seen in the walkway, nor are they tempted to cross the glaciers.


They are not even aware of the prices that increase along with the height on the shops along the way. That loud sound of Mandakini flowing is not able to be heard amidst the sound of their helicopter.
It is possible only for pedestrians and not for helicopters to meet people from far off places and different places of India. When a person starts climbing on foot, the passion to reach Josh and Baba's temple is not in the helicopter.

The joy of traveling to Kedarnath amidst the edge of the mountains and the picturesque natural environment can never come in a helicopter. Then do not know why people keep an eye on the system for booking helicopters and hostile to their bank money. Don't know why ...

I had just moved forward, then I saw a board of Baba Kedarnath Dham welcoming me, which made me very happy to see that I finally completed my journey to my destination. Here I saw that there was a long queue of devotees visiting Baba's temple.

I was also in the queue and after a long delay, when I moved forward, I saw a river joining the Mandakini, meaning this was the place of confluence where some devotees were taking bath. I had not even bathed yesterday, and my mind got distraught to take bath after seeing the flowing river. Safi was tied with sticks. After speaking to my brother in front line, I went to take a bath.


The water velocity of the river was very high and also extremely cold. There are paved ghats along the river, sitting on which I bathed in this icy water. Before bathing, I did not have the courage to bathe in this icy water, but when I took a bath after taking Baba's name, I always took a bath. I did not know where the cold and cold water were. After taking a bath in Kedarghati, after offering water to the sun, I came to the fore line. After bathing, tiredness was a lot of work and a new feeling and freshness started feeling in the body.

After being in the line from morning till evening, I finally got the good fortune to enter Baba's temple and I wholeheartedly visited Baba's temple and saw Kedarnath Baba. After seeing Baba, the mind became very calm, now a strange feeling was awakening in the mind. After seeing, I saw Nandji Maharaj sitting outside and went to the back of the temple and bowed to Bhimashila.

I took away the darshan of Bhairavnath Baba from far away because the body no longer had the courage to reach him and I had to reach my mother as soon as possible. Although I was hungry. Going to a bhandare, I received food and took Bhimbali and departed. Till ten o'clock in the night, I was with my mother in Bhimbali, where my other fellow travelers also met me i.e. Vishnu Bhai, Tripathi ji and Ankit who had come to their mother at ten o'clock this morning and had rested.
