Significance of Chardham yatra
In Hinduism, the goals of an ideal life have been
divided into four parts – Dharma (duty), Artha
(wealth and prosperity), Kaam (worldly desires),
Moksha (salvation or ultimate freedom). Moksha is
the ultimate goal, but the way towards Moksha should
be preceded by other three aspects of life. Moksha
is the stage when a human being attains freedom from
the vicious circle of life and death and become one
with god. It also connotes freedom from
materialistic pursuits, self-realization and
Shrines of Himalayan Char
Dham represent all three major sects of Hinduism.
There is one Vaishnava temple (Badrinath), one
Shaiva temple (Kedarnath) and two Shakti temples
(Yamunotri and Gangotri).
The enormous beauty of
the Himalayas coupled with the air of divinity that
flows through the region creates a meditative
atmosphere. Embarking on a journey over here and
withstanding the hardships, if any, which come while
carrying out a Yatra, facilitates a persons
exploration into his/her inner self too.
