AMARNATH
The Waxing and Waning Sivalinga of Amarnath

UNIQUENESS

The waxing and waning snow-linga of Amarnath, considered to be one of greatest phenomena of Nature is a wonder of wonders of our punya Bharat, luring several thousands of pilgrims every year, in the months of Sravana and Bhadrapada. This nature-made lima is imbued with such mystery and sanctity that it is exercising an irresistible fascination over ardent Saivates in particular and theists in general, since time immemorial. According to tradition, it is here Maheswar, the all-benevolent Lord distributed amrit nectar to Mukkoti devathas to making them immortal and immune against the danavakrityas of asuras. And they in greatful devotion named him Amarnalh. It is here, on one full moon night, Lord Maheswar explained to Parvathi the secrets of creation together with attainment of Moksha. And it is this sacred spot that witnessed the metamorphosis of Uma Maheswar into doves, when His narration of secret was overheard by his birthyas-servants.
