Char Dham Badrinath, Dwarka, Puri, Rameshwaram,

In the north is Badrinath Dham,
in the south Rameswaram Dham,
in the west Dwarka dham, and in
the east Puri Dham, also known as Purusottam or Jagannath Dham

Krishna's chariot or a UFO???

Badrinath Dham originated in Satyua Yuga when Lord Jagannath was in deep meditation.
Rameswaram dates to the Treta Yuga, when Lord Jagannath was taking His bath.
Dwarkanath Dham stems from the Dwapara Yuga, when the Lord's activity is sleeping or taking rest.
Puri Dham in Kali Yuga is where Lord Jagannath is engaged in eating.

Therefor, Badrinath is called the place of meditating, Ramswaram the place of bathing, Dwarka the place of sleeping and Puri the place of eating. Puri is boarded by the sea, and embraced by sandy beaches. It is said that one obtains 'moksha' from the cycle of birth and rebirth, if one stays here for three days and nights.

Welcome to the spirituality blog

This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
