Uttarakhand Invites Devotees For Char Dham Yatra
Uttarakhand is a beauty by itself and needs no introduction. Be it the people, food, culture, landscape, language, heritage and most importantly the sites of pilgrimage. Uttarakhand thrives on its natural bounties but it is tantamount to being looked from the lens of spiritual significance. However, Uttarakhand invites devotees for Char Dham Yatra. Badrinath, Gangotri, Kedarnath, and Yamunotri, people call these places Chota Char Dham Yatra also. Likewise, the local community of Uttarakhand calls them “Land of God”. A little bit about the history of the Char Dham Yatraa
The four sites; Badrinath, Gangotri, Kedarnath, and Yamunotri are very important sites to visit as a part of Chota Char Dham Yatra. To clarify Chaar means four and Dham means abode or seats. Further, Badrinath is a very important part of the Chota Char Dham Yatra. But initially, Char Dham Yatra consisted of four abodes – Badrinath, Dwarka, Jagannath Puri, and Rameswaram. Certainly, Badrinath was an important visit for Char Dham Yatra of India as well.
The History Of Char Dham Yatra
Let’s understand a little bit about the history of the Char Dham Yatra. As per the Hindu mythological text, a renowned reformer the Century AD Shri Adi Shankaracharya used the word Chardham relating to God blessings. Shri Adi Shankaracharya said that God exists on earth in his four abodes. As per him, the abodes were in four directions. Shri Adi Shankaracharya said that Badrinath, Dwarka, Jagannath Puri, and Rameswaram are abodes inside God. We all know these four places by the name of Char Dham Yatra.
By inside God, it means that devotees are not a separate entity and God-sparks are there in each soul. The sense we can make out of it is God resides in these Char Dham. Shri Adi Shankaracharya quoted that Badrinath is inside the north, Jagannath Puri to the east, Dwarka inside the west and Rameswaram inside the South. These four places are vibrating in God’s energies but the blessings also lie in the path today the Char Dham.
The route towards these four places something that words fall short to depict or describe.
