You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching/ Love like you'll never be hurt/ Sing like there's nobody listening/ And live like it's heaven on earth.

Badrinarayan Temple/ Uttaranchal India

Badrinath temple, sometimes called Badrinarayan temple, is situated along the Alaknanda river, in the hill town of Badrinath in Uttarakhand state in India. It is widely considered to be one of the holiest Hindu temples, and is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The temple and town are one of the four Char Dham pilgrimage sites. It is also one of the 108 Divya Desams, holy shrines for Vaishnavites. The temple is open only six months every year (between the end of April and the beginning of November), due to extreme weather conditions in the Himalayan region. Several murtis are worshipped in the temple. The most important is a one meter tall statue of Vishnu as Lord Badrinarayan, made of black Saligram stone. The statue is considered by many Hindus to be one of eight swayam vyakta keshtras, or self-manifested statues of Vishnu.[1] The murti depicts Vishnu sitting in meditative posture, rather than His far more typical reclining pose. In November each year, when the town of Badrinath is closed, the image is moved to nearby Jyotirmath.

Am fost anul trecut la Badrinath si templul este un mare loc de pelerinaj. De asemenea, vizual, este culoare si istorie. Si este deschis doar 2-3 ore pe zi, nu mai stiu exact.

Cit despre drumul pina aici... o sa postez ceva poze facute. Trebuie ajuns la 3 mii si ceva de m, pe un drum abrupt, cu o panta neprietenoasa si un singur fir.... si muntii mai cad din cind in se mai opreste traficul...deh, "relax, my friend"... vorba indianului, ce daca pe jos e drum forestier lat de 3m si cu noroi de 40cm... Shiva sa ne aiba in paza!

Se crede ca in pesterile ascunse in muntii din provincia Uttaranchal a trait autorul Mahabharatei...
