Jeth Sud 10, Thursday,
Dt. 24-05-2018
Left Bhojwasa at 6.00 this morning. After walking for 50 steps, a small plant appeared, shining as if the whole plant was made of glass. Surprised. When I went very close, I saw that there was snow on all the branches. It may have snowed during the night. The tree turned to snow. We named it ‘Glass Tree’ and had to forcibly remove the eyes from there. Sanjeev Butti’s uncle’s daughter, Ben, was fascinated by this ethereal plant for a long time. As if telling us. ‘Take me along’ was not possible. It is forbidden to take even a single leaf from the Gangotri forest. Another 14 km. There’s more to go. One thing was comforting, now we had to get down. We walked, sampling 10-12 plants along the way that were almost dry. Took two dry sticks of bhojpatra. They came back till 12 o’clock.
Today is ‘Ganga Dasami’ I came to know only after coming here. Here is the grand glory of Ganga Dussehra. The whole village was decorated. Ganga temple could not accommodate the crowd of pilgrims. Once a year on Ganga Dasami, the idol of Ganga is brought from the temple to the banks of the Ganges. Then there will be anusthanadi. All that will go to Gangadevi Nijmandir till 12 noon. All the Sadhu-Bawa-Sanyasis of Gangotri Dham gather. Stock up. Coincidentally we got to see everything today.
There is no vihar this evening, after a little fatigue, the journey will continue.
We are wandering in the Himalayas showering hail of joy.
An event is remembered about 250 years ago, that is, Vs. No. A student from Bhutan in 1806. His name was Lamchidas Golalare. They traveled to Ashtapada from Bhutan via China-Burma-Kamrup. It took them 18 years for that journey. He has beautifully described this journey in a book called ‘Meri Kailas Yatra’. Dear friends of the Yatra Narana had to read the book.
Narrating the journey in his own words-
Aath wrote the letter of Shri Kailash Parvatji. According to him, Vikram Samvat 1806, India is a great country, so that Brahma, a resident of Girmadhyanagar in the country of Bhutan near the Himalayas in the north direction, is traveling to China for the sake of a visit or for the sake of seeing. go to So Kathit wished for the sight of Kailash in the Vrat Ghar, because if the bird wants to see Niranjanpuri with the strength of its wings, then look there. After all, if you fly higher than you can, you will die. So, with a pure mind and a pure mind, let go of the attachment of your home, leave your king Balvirya Singh Boddhamati Suryavanshi, or leave your Bhutan country, Girmadhyanagar, Maha Sakalkutumb Dharma, and leave your close friends. का प्रवाषिल जोर है, तहान से चाल पुर्व उर्मा मुल्क में कीरिटमदेश कोसियानार 400 खेले जे जे जेट, तहान की ज्ञरीय मुलम्मे का कम भाउ खाक रहे है शारम हिजाब नही. From there, he went to the east, in the country of Brahma, he went to the city of Madhya Pradesh, 200 miles away. The throne of the king of this country is seated in this city. Sakal desh aur raja Buddhmati hai, thaan se chal purpoo aur brahma mulk mein kapuridesh Keshavnagar kos 350 gaye, there is a lot of fragrant real agar tagar camphor koima (Bhimsenikpur). (यो सुग्ञान अर जागा 100) उतले में है है अवर के पहार में सोने रुपे की खानी ही है. From there, go east and in this country, on the border of Cochin country, go to Bhaval Pahar Ghatepar Hevanagar Kos 250 km and on this hill, the statue of Bahubaliji, Kayotsarga, is standing in a big place. A big fair is added and worshiped. After raising one hand of those images as a teaching, we went from there to Cochinmulk Viendamdesh, Hovinagar kos 600. The king of this country reigns in this city and the entire country is Buddhist.… So, eight types of Jains are seen in these six Chinas, especially in China, there are Tunavare Jains. Korea is found in China and Ghaghelwal, Vaghanare are Jains. Tibet in China
Sohnavare.. Then from there we went southward to Tibet for 80 miles. There were beautiful trees in Mansarovar. There were three kinds of birds. All the flowers are full of fragrance, the great beautiful lotus is blooming in Mansarovar, so on the bank of that hill is Silvan city, Tafa Kot Kos 16 is not a market, two people know, that city Jaini Jain Panthi Base Hai, we stayed there for a year and We worshiped him at the time of initiation with eleven golden idols… So a beautiful place lies on the north side of Mansarovar. Pawananjayakumar, Hanuman’s father, was camping at that place when he went to Lanka to help Ravana. So this is what the people there used to say. Ab उस वन में जिवो को भाय भाय है है, so Panchamkal hai, we had darshan by selling lives and those three Attai ko 55 Chaityalaya का भाथ मेल है है है, पुर्ण का जीव का भाय रहे है. From there, on the south side of the border of China, we came to Hanuvar country, ten to fifteen kos, many temples of many sects and many temples of twenty sects. So humko sab rokte bhaye-where do you go further, further jane ke thikhana nahi hai, banbelen bhaut khadi haiin forest park is lying. में पहारों में रास्ता नहीं पवे है, दार्षान कालास है। Somewhere 20 kos, somewhere 40 kos, somewhere 80 kos and that Hanuvardesh city Raja Praja all Jains know, the Sravaka king there is Suryavanshi Chandravanshi Kshatriya, there are lakhs of Jain temples in that country. There are 1500 houses in this city, so some two yards, some 3 yards high empty peak, there is no square, and there is no temple in them. These are the four red gems. The people of that country are afraid of the creatures of that forest. All the cities are the coat of arms, so from one watch day, the gates of the cities are crowded, and the people of that country or the city are all stopping us. Jive Singh, Sardul Tumko Bhak Jayaga Taten Humko Kailashjo Darshan 12 mas hai hi te hoy hai hai hai hai tum tum prabhat ke saami, because here is 40 kos tak to to hai forest, further yoga is 1 Sagargang Darya and 32 kos high Kailash is, so There is nothing far at this height, Kailash’s darshan is a hundred and a half miles away, here sometimes the signs of the temples are buried in us, and when the snow falls in the summer season, they are visible, so you should do the darshan from here. Don’t go so we didn’t believe one, then the audience kept silent. Hum Hoy Nahar ke muk hand ghal ke muk hand ghal ke darshan ke vis bhasha darshanon ki alasha hoy nahar ke bedar se bedar ke past life Four kos deep and wide, where there is no sign of the ghat, how will you get down? Ahead, a 32-high gir, then eight feet of the mountain, a hundred steps will be climbed, but for the sake of death, Darshan Yoga, walk the easy way of the Lord and cross that mountain. Going further to Sagargang Nala, Vitraag Bhav stood at home and Jogadhyandhar took this method that if they do not see Kailash, I will do Tablag diet, water renunciation and asceticism here and maybe even if I see darshan, I will remove my clothes after seeing 23 Maharaj’s Nirvanabhoomi, Munivrat Darunga, Parishah Sahunga may not tarunga, Vastratyag Shitdham will endure. आस तापस्य में अहार पानी के त्यागने से दिन 4 मेये तब अक विटार कहा का रुप्दार का रुपदार मैष्टे भाया भाय, who are you? Then we are the followers of God. Kailash ke darshan then he said, O fool, you bawla hai Kaise kareo kailash ke darshan? Go, there will be no darshan of Kailash from here. Then Hum Fer Kahi Hey Maharaj who are you? Jo humko cruel bhaye humko bawla kah dhak deo ho, aur darao ho so main bawla nahi hoon. You who deny us the sight of God are heretics. Then Vyantar again spoke, Hai bhai tu ajaan hai hai Sagargang hai 4 kos ghara hai. There is a wide canal, 32 kos high hill ahead. How will your vision be? Then we said, “So you go, don’t speak. Then you said to us as a monk, ‘You are an ascetic.'” Afraid to tell the gross difference. The origin of temples is tonic or fruit, vegetation, mines of metals, nirvana land of moons, the size of idols, where is the gross difference, so we asked him when he left at the same place. Sohnavare.. Then from there we went southward to Tibet for 80 miles. There were beautiful trees in Mansarovar. There were three kinds of birds.
