YATRA AND ITS PARAMARTHA

PILGRIMAGE - ITS IMPORTANCE

Among the many suggested as means, pilgrimage -  yatra to holy places, sanctified by the association of gods and godmen takes pride of place, and it has manifold blessings and multifarious gains. These spiritual havens scattered all over our India abound in gigantic structures raised in memory of divinities and dedicated men. They bear the marks of the highest ingenuity of man in realms of art and architecture. Seeing the deities enshrined and the works of art embellishing them is deemed an act of papanivarana according to the sacred books. In addition to enjoying the benefit of dipping in sacred rivers circumambuting the deities sipping the punya thirthas, the pilgrims establishes ties with fellowmen of diverse faiths and customs etc., living in different parts of India. If the yatra is made to those parts in the true spirit enunciated it transforms the base into divine the change - its aftermath even if it is changed a little due to either passage of time, or fickleness of mind. Its memory lingers longer and supplies enough fuel to sustain and retain its divine aroma fill death.
