The Amarnath Yatra commences on July 1, 2023, and it is slated to last for 62 days. Devotees of Lord Shiva eagerly anticipate this pilgrimage to catch a glimpse of Baba Barfani in the revered Amarnath cave. This year, the opening day of the yatra boasts four auspicious coincidences that will add to the significance of the journey.
Situated at an altitude of 3,880 metres in the Himalayas of Kashmir, the Amarnath cave is a sacred destination. To visit Amarnath, one must register online or offline. The pilgrimage will remain open till August 31, with Shravan Purnima being the auspicious concluding day.
Due to the unpredictable weather, the Amarnath Yatra is renowned for being a challenging expedition. It is widely believed that Lord Shiva tests the devotion of the pilgrims at every step. There are two traditional routes to reach Amarnath – one via Pahalgam (Nunwan) and another through Central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district (Baltal).
This year, devotees and followers embarking on the yatra have noticed some coincidences.
According to the Panchang, the opening day of the Amarnath Yatra is marked by four auspicious coincidences. The first one being Shani Pradosh Vrat, which brings happiness to children when they observe a fast and worship Shiva in the evening.
The second fortunate occurrence on the day of the Amarnath Yatra’s commencement is Shivvas, observed in the morning of July 1. Lord Shiva is present atop Nandi until 11.07 p.m., making it an ideal time for Rudrabhishek.
The third lucky coincidence is Ravi Yoga, beginning at 3:04 in the afternoon on July 1 and lasting through 5:27 the following morning.
The fourth coincidence is the alignment of Anuradha Nakshatra and an auspicious yoga. Anuradha Nakshatra is present, and auspicious yoga has been forming since the morning of the first day of the Amarnath Yatra. Shubh Yoga is practiced until 10:44 p.m., after which Shukla Yoga takes over. Anuradha Nakshatra lasts until 3:04 p.m., at which point Jyestha Nakshatra begins.
To visit Amarnath Dham, it is essential to complete the registration process. Registration can be done through branches of PNB, SBI, Yes Bank, and Jammu and Kashmir Bank. Online registration is also available at https://jksasb.nic.in/.
Travelers must provide a medical certificate from a verified doctor and a passport-size photograph. The age range for travelers is 13 to 70 years.
Legend has it that Lord Shiva narrated the tale of immortality to Goddess Parvati in the Amarnath Cave, but she fell asleep midway. As a result, an ice Shivling is worshipped every year. Worshipping Baba Amarnath is believed to fulfill wishes and keep devotees safe from troubles.
