Online registration - Amarnath Yatra
while there are two paths to reach this amarnath cave shrine through the more famous pahalgam route (though long) through which one can have darshan of seshnag, the other path through baltal (very short) is preferred by those who cannot trek, for the distance is very small and to and fro trekking from baltal to the amarnath cave and back to baltal can be completed between a morning and an evening. furthermore, there are two helicopters running continuously from morning to evening from baltal to the cave which hardly takes 7 minutes.
registration for the yatra begins from 20th may at all branches of jammu and kashmir bank or can be done easily through their website www.jkbank.com

"Over 1.55 lakh devotees have been registered for Amarnath pilgrimage at 110 registration counters across the country and online till today. The highest number of 52,700, have been registered from Delhi zone," sources said.
Of the total registered, 71,700 people have been registered for pilgrimage via Baltal route, while 82,300 others will trek via Pahalgam route, they said.
As many as 31,400 pilgrims have been registered in Mumbai zone, 2,700 in south zone, 31,600 in Chandigarh-Mohile zone, 1,700 in Kashmir zone and 4,000 in Jammu zone.
The yatra to the cave shrine of Lord Shiva in South Kashmir was postponed from June 7 to June 15 in view of heavy accumulation of snow on the routes leading to Amarnath.
The two-month long pilgrimage to the 3,880-metre-high shrine will conclude on August 5.
Last year, over 4.5 lakh pilgrims had participated in the yatra.
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!
