From its foot, flows Rushi ganga. In that place, Bramha kamalas blossom during Krushnastami. Till then no one is allowed to touch the flowers.
Lord’s sister’s temple Bhamini’s priest gets possessed one day. He then takes bath in Alakananda river, goes up the Rushi Ganga, sleeps there and then next day plucks them and comes down to offer to Lord. Till then no one is allowed to touch the flowers. Even today, these rules are followed.
Lord on top is doing penance and distributing its strength to all of us. The lamp when placed on ground gives light only to few things around it . But when that lamp is placed on height will spread the light. Thus Lord established the high Himalayas as his residence and He spreads this jna:na to whole world. In the whole world, it is the most beutiful ghat road about 300 kms. long. To come to such a place in a real boon. He himself became a guru and sishya for our sake and to increase the power of manthra he is doing penance. He provided the hot spring in the cold place for convenience of devotees. We are blessed to be here. Whenever, wherever we meditate, first see this Lord in your heart. Whatever you do, place him in your heart/mind In all your activities meditate on him put him in your heart, see him.
