Why Visit Kedarnath ?

Kedarnath is visited third in the Char Dham pilgrimage trail. The sacred shrine also forms the crux of Panch Kedar. Also, Kedarnath is one of the rare twelve jyotirlingas. A Shivlinga is said to be a focal point of the omniscient Shiva consciousness that permeates the entirety of the cosmos. While Jyotirlinga is said to be a millionfold times more powerful than a typical shivlinga. In fact as per Shiv Purana, Lord Shiva would dwell in 12 chosen points. It is said that the blessed of the spiritually advanced devotees can witness in these jyotirlingas, the iridescent rays of divine light that emanate from the holy Shivlinga.

Kedarnath Jyotirlinga, situated at an altitude of 11,755 ft above sea level, is the highest of all the jyotirlingas, and perhaps the most difficult to access. That is until helicopter services till the shrine began to emerge as an option for ardent seekers.

One cannot dwell on the significance of Kedarnath shrine without mentioning its inexorable link with Pandavas. As per Mahabharata, with the end of the war and subsequent victory of Pandavas over Kauravas, the five brothers found themselves burdened with guilt over their having to flow the blood of their own kith and kin. They were advised to approach the all-forgiving Shiva to seek reparation for their sins. Lord Shiva was not to be easily placated. In fact, he did not want to give them darshan and took the guise of a bull to escape from their notice. Suspecting certain anomaly, they chased the bull. Bhima, known for his physical strength, managed to catch hold of the rear of the animal as it dived into the ground at Kedarnath. Only the hump of the animal was left above the ground while the rest of its organs appeared at four different places in the Garhwal Himalayas. Recognizing that he had unknowingly hurt the corporeal form taken by Lord himself, Bhima was struck with enormous remorse and began to massage the injured hump with ghee. Even today, ghee abhishek remains one of the most important of all the pooja rituals practiced at the sacred shrine. Pandavas built temples at each of the places where the body parts of the bull appeared- Tungnath (arms), Madhmaheswar (stomach), Rudranath (face), Kalpeshwar (hair & head) and Kedarnath (hump).

Not everyone was blessed with good health and fit physique to trek the strenuous trail till the shrine from Gaurikund (16-19 km). Also, there isn’t sufficient provision for accommodation near the premises of the temple. So the individual was expected to finish the round trip – uphill trek, darshan and downhill trek within a single day. No wonder, Kedarnath darshan remained an excruciating challenge.
