MAA DHARI DEVI
Thuis is my true experience of mine along with my three other freinds named subhas thanik,pandit Beli ram sharma,N.P.SINGH.our’s was the four member group,who used to do spiritual journey togeher through out india.this incidence is about 16 years back.This siddha peeth which is siyuated in SRINAGAR(Uttarakhand) is on the way to BADRINATH DHAM..Swami nagraj of PAURI DIST.has told us about this temple &we have visited this temple 18 years back along with swami jee,he hastold us that this is one of the 51 shakti peeth of india as one of aang of sati was fell here.one of the villager has seen this place in his dream,maa has given him the instructions in his dream to go there you will find a black stone idol of mine,you do the puja regulerly which will benifit the whole DEV BHOOMI,you can make walls around me but don’t put roof above me,because i want to see the sky always.Swami jee has told us that whenever peoples has tried to put a slab over the idol it fell down.
one more thing is very chamtkari about this temple is,the MAA’S IDOL changes it face in the morning it look like a small girl, in the noon she look like a women & in evening she became a old women you can see the wrinkles on stone idol..The temple was situated on the rock at the center of ALAKHNANDA NADI far below from mainhighway road at least 500 feet below.Swami jee has told us that whenever you come here for darsan, apart from reguler offering to MAA each of you must offer a pair of laung (CLOVES) as cloves are very dear to maa kali,also this devi is protecting the all four dham of uttrakhand such as BADRINATH,KEDARNATH,YAMUNOTRI & GANGOTRI.That is why she is so powerful.
AFTER TWO YEARS WE HAVE AGAIN VISITED THE DHARI DEVI,WHILE GOING TOWARDS BADRINATH,IT WAS AROUND 4PM ,WE REACHED THERE BY 4.30PM WITH CHUNRI,NARIYAL,MALA,PRASSAD,WE OFFERED THAT TO MAA RECITE THE SHAKTI MANTRAS,MEDITATE FOR WHILE &RETURNED,ONCE WE WERE JUST 50 FEET FROM MAIN ROAD,MY FREIND BELIRAM SHARMA TOLD ME”,PANDIT JEE EK GALTI HO GYI,LAUNG (CLOVES) TO MAA KO OFFER KIYA HI NAHI”AFTER LISTENING HIM WE GET NERVOUS,SOME TOLD ME LET OFFER CLOVES FROM HERE,THROW IT TOWARDS TEMPLE,BY FOLDING YOUR HANDS,BUT I TOLD MY GROUP NOTHING DOING WE WILL GO BACK,WILL PARTICIPATE IN THE EVENING AARTI,WE WILL NOT PROCEED FURHER ,STAY IN SRINAGAR IN NIGHT.
ONCE WE REACHED AT THE TEMPLE AGAIN ,WHAT WE HAVE SEEN & HEARD FROM PUJARI’S WAS MIRACLE,PUJARIS WERE SITTING ON THE FLOOR WITH BOTH HAND ON THERE HEAD,VERY SHAKY,I HAVE ASKED THEM WEHTERE EVERY THING IS OKAY?
