KEDARNATH - KEDAR SAMBHU JYOTIRLINGA

Siva Purana testifies to the account thus : "At Kedara, Lord Siva Himself has been worshipped from time immemorial by gods and the nationals of Bharata Khanda. Kedara Sambhu, the Lord of the cosmos is undoubtedly the exalted presiding deity of this sacred Bharata Varsha and the yielder of all desires". It is also mentioned that giving dana of a kankana-arm ring here has special merit. Offering of pindas to the ancestors after a dip in the river Mandakini brings forth enviable merit and liberates the entire kula. Sraddhas at any place in this region are efficacious and yield greater benefits. It is said that anyone who drinks the water from Retaskund here is freed from rebirth; and here Siva stays permanently and the place goes by the name Isana Sikara. It is the spiritual EL Dorado of the Saivates from the dawn of religion.
