Pahalgam , 12 May 2022

Devotees in the age group of 13 to 75 years and women with less than 6 weeks of pregnancy can register themselves for Shri Amarnath Yatra 2022. Registration process for this yatra has started from 11th April. This journey will be a full 43 days. During this, devotees will have to follow the corona protocol.

Amarnath Cave – A Detailed Explanation

Amarnathji is considered to be one of the major Hindu shrines. The holy cave is the abode of Lord Shiva. The protector of the Supreme, Lord Shiva, the Destroyer, is seated in this cave as an ice-lingam. This lingam is formed naturally, which is believed to wax and fade with the moon.Although the original shrines believe that the yatra (yatra) should be done from Srinagar, it is more common to start the yatra at Chandanwadi and cover the distance to Amarnathji in five days. Pahalgam is 96 kilometres from Srinagar.

Amarnath shrine is situated at an altitude of 3,888 metres above sea level.

It is located 46 km from Pahalgam and 14 km from Baltal in a narrow valley at the far end of the Lidder valley.

The more common practice is to start the yatra at Chandanwadi and cover the distance to Amarnathji in five days and back. 

Story behind the discovery of the holy Cave

But the popular or well-known story about the rediscovery of this sacred cave is narrated by Buta Malik, a herdsman.

The most interesting developments are described as follows:

A saint gave a bag full of coal to Buta Malik. When he opened the bag on arrival at his house, he was surprised that the bag was full of gold coins. With this he swayed happily. He ran to thank the saint. But the saints had disappeared. Instead, they found the sacred cave and ice Shiva Lingam there. He announced this discovery to the villagers. After this it became a holy place of pilgrimage.

Mystical explanation in Hindu Scriptures

Maa Parvati asked Shiva to explain why and when she started wearing head beadsto which Bhole Shankar replied, "Whenever you are born, I add more heads to my bead ". Parvati said, "I die again and again, but you are immortal. Please tell me the reason behind this." "Bhole Shankar replied that for this you have to listen to the immortal story". Shiva agreed to narrate the detailed story to Mother Parvati. He started for a secluded place where no living being could hear the immortal mystery and eventually chose the Amarnath cave. Quietly, he left his Nandi (the bull he used to ride) at Pahalgam. In Chandanwadi, he freed the moon (chanda) from his hair (jatas). He released the snakes on the banks of Sheshnag lake.

He decided to leave his son Ganesha at Mahaguna Parvat. In Panjtarni, Shiva left behind the five elements (earth, water, air, fire and sky), which give birth to life and of which he is the Lord. Leaving all these behind, Bhole Shankar entered the holy Amarnath cave with mother Parvati and took her samadhi. To ensure that no living being is able to hear the immortal story, he created Kalagni and ordered him to spread fire to destroy all living things in and around the holy cave. After this he started telling the secret of immortality to Mother Parvati. But by chance a pair of pigeons climbed to the top of the story and became immortal.

Pair of Pigeons Story

Many pilgrims even today report seeing pairs of pigeons in the holy shrine and wonder how these birds survive in such a cold and high-altitude region.
