KEDARNATH TEMPLE - KEDARASWAMY DARSAN FOR HUMANS

Bhagavan Kedareswar is accessible for worship by mortals from April - the time when the sun enters Mesha, or Aries in Vaisakha to October. when he leaves for Scorpio. During the winter, Kedar Prabhu is worshipped by gods exclusively: and at, that time a replica of the Lord is worshipped by humans at Ukimath, lying at a distance of 60 K.m. from the shrine :hence for mortals Ukimath is the permanent seat of worship. When the temple is closed, the priests reside at Guptasaki and Ukimath. The speciality of the priests is that they claim descent from the Rawals - the High Priests appointed by the Adi Sankara himself choosing from amongst Kerala brahmins of pure Aryan origin. Thus, the Namboodri brahmins are still holding the holy post. As the temple was consecrated by Adi Sankara to making the holy shrine holier, the holier image holiest by worshipping the most compassionate at this !unique place, it has acquired supreme significance thenceforth. Staunch Saivites offer very many types of poojas with great fervor. Normal kinds. of course. are the morning and the evening ones. The morning pooja is called Nirvan Darsan and the evening one Shringar Darsan. The several poojas, like Subh prabhat. Balbhog, Mahabhishek, Rudrabhishek. Ashtohar, Siva Sahasranam. Siva Mahima Stotra and Ekanta Seva are offered everyday. The shrine attracts lakhs of pilgrims during Kumbha Mela at Haridwar, when Jupiter stays in Acquaries once every twelve years. The Ardhra Kumbha Mela also brings the same number and the pilgrims normally visit this after their prayers at Haridwar. Read for more about the holy temple.
