The Uttarakhand disaster has raised many questions among seekers. Shivi Verma speaks to some spiritual masters in quest of the answers
The goddess strikes!Could the dislodging of the Dhari Devi statue have triggered the catastrophe, ask locals.
On June 15th, 2013, the ancient deity of Dhari Devi was removed from her temple to be shifted to another location to facilitate the construction of a dam, which locals were opposing ever since the conception of the project with the belief that the moving of the Dhari Devi would somehow agitate Kali. Exactly on the next day a massive cloudburst and flash flood started in Uttarakhand, which devastated Kedarnath, washing the city completely away. Previously, in 1882, an attempt to shift the Dhari Devi shrine was immediately followed by havoc in Kedar Valley. There is some strange connection between this guardian goddess and the Kedarnath jyotirliñga.
Dhari Devi is a temple on the banks of the Alakananda River in the Garhwal Region of Uttarakhand. It houses the upper half of a deity of goddess Kali; the lower half of the idol of Kali is located in Kalimath Temple. These joint temples are aligned exactly at NE-SW direction symbolising Kali as sleeping with her feet in NE direction and head in the SE direction. The Kedarnath jyotirlinga is exactly North from Kalimath symbolising the Shiva-Shakti relationship and is constantly calming the devi who is in the South (Mars direction, anger, agitated and at war). There are energies we human beings do not understand as yet and it is best to let these spiritual shrines where these energies are contained alone.
