KEDARNATH - KEDAR SAMBHU JYOTIRLINGA

Antiquity

Nara Narayan Episode

Regarding its origin, Kotirudra Sam Hita gives an interesting account. It narrates that once, the two sages Nara and Naryan -- the incarnations of Seri Mahavishnu did penance in Badarikasram, and they were worshipping an earthern Siva linga made by themselves with utmost devotion. Their inimitable piety and single-minded tenacity pleased the Lord most, and so He appeared before and asked them to name any boon that He would grant forthwith. The highly evolved humanist sages asked for the boon that the Lord must stay there eternally in the form of Jyotirlinga for blessing liberation to the pious, who worship Him at that place. Pleased with their desire for patitamanavoddharana, He said 'Thadastu' and accordingly He is dwelling in the shrine in the form desired.
