AMARNATH
The Waxing and Waning Sivalinga of Amarnath

THE HOLY TREK

To reach this Lord of Kailas revealing Himself in the ire form, an arduous journey of 46 km has to be made,
and it is on foot, and foot alone. No mode of transport can come to the rescue of the ardent bhaktas, though modern science boasts of reaching the moon with its infinite number of inventions and discoveries. So, the annual traditional padayatra to Amarnath cave is the touch stone of theist's devotion of Lord Maheswar. It begins on the fifth of the bright half of Sravana every year, with H.H. Sankaracharya of Saradapeeth in fore front with all fervour and fanfare as evidenced by carrying of a big silver stick called Danda with lord Siva's Standard, followed by hundreds of Sadhus Nagas, Mahants, Saints, Viragis, Sanyasins of every brand along with devotees coming from all parts of Akhand Bharat. They start from Srinagar and this sublime yatra is given all assistance by the slate and is taken care of by the Dharmarth Department of Kashmir State. The Department provides all help through several of its departments like police, medical, etc., and its special officers accompany it throughout.
