AMARNATH
The Waxing and Waning Sivalinga of Amarnath

This rare phenomenon has been highly applauded by even other religions and they, recorded it with inexplicable joy. The famous An-i-Akbari of Abul Fazl embodies this care phenomenon with great gusto. It says in Vol. II Page 360 "Amarnath is considered a shrine of great sanctity. When the new moon rises, from leer throne of rays, -a bubble as it were of ice is formed in the cave which daily increase. little by little for fifteen clays, till it is some what higher than two yards, of the measure of yard determined by His Majesty; with the waning of moon the image likewise begins to decrease, till no trace of it remains when the moon disappears". Needless to prolong that every national who visits it, expresses his infinite joy in such terms, they bear testimony to his acceptance of the cave. There is un the left,  a small cave inside Amarnalh, from which a white substance resembling chalk is dug out and given to the visitors as Vibhuti of Amarnalh. And this Prasadam is distributed by Mohammedans of Batkut village must sharp in making the journey enjoyable during halts at several places and service at every step arc beyond description. Distribution of Prasadam by Muslims in a Hindu shrine is very odd and can be deemed a rarity of rarities. Yet, it is going on since centuries. This practice is rooted in a strange myth.
