Dear friends, the next post shall come a bit later on. I am engaged in its preparation and I am as eager as you are to discover some more facts about rebirth or reincarnation.
My latest trip to the holy shrine Shri Badrinath just got over and I took some time off at home yesterday to see the lovely pictures that I have shot there. I am exhibiting a few of my best and favourite photos to share with you. They are in a sequence for your convenience. If you have already visited Shri Badrinath sometime, then too I am certain that you will relish seeing these photos because I have included quite a few pictures of our enchanting biodiversity, our rich heritage, apart from the holy and religious places in the Himalayas. And for those of you , who are yet to make a trip to this pilgrimage site, these pictures will be of some use for your planning and organizing the trip in future. So with this objective, I am displaying my photos in the gallery in two parts-I & II.
Part I is a series of photos starting from Haridwar, Rishiskesh, Joshimath, Badrinath and ending with Mana, a small hamlet near Badrinath, just 3 kms away.
Auli was really, really mesmerizing. Part II will have photos exclusively of that, a place in the snowy mountains around 8,000 ft above sea level, near Joshimath. So here we begin….
Rishikesh, the ancient foot hill city made for rishis and sages to contemplate and meditate.
On our way up to Badrinath, the journey begins!
Joshimath or ancient Jyotirmath-the monastery of light
On our way to Shri Badrinath temple
To be continued….
Thank you Sarikaji for these beautiful pics.
That view of the mountains from the balcony is amazing, wish I
could have such a view from my bedroom balcony every morning 🙂
Shahid, imagine I took the tripod so far and the indigo rays of the pre-sunrise picture add such a beauty to the whole canvas. Indeed this one is my favourite too. I used the tripod because the panaroma was so beautiful that I did not want any slight shaking of my hands because of excitement. I have two or three more continous shots which you can utilize in making the video in future. Thanks many times for your genuine appreciation.
Although I have been to Badrinath in 2005, the pictures clicked by you Ma, are breathtaking. Now I wish to visit this Holy Shrine again.
Dear Ma, Loved the mountains and indigo rays pic.. they are awesome !!! Although I have been there.. but have missed visiting so many places 🙂 Thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures Ma. Hope to visit this place again by the grace of God and all my Gurus !!!
Dear Nazma, indeed these picture of my pilgrimage to Badrinath are awesome since the trip was very exhilarating. Sometimes we get lucky when we can capture some great shots and those indigo rays scene was exceptional. Never saw something like that before and I managed time well or else the sun would have been out in a time span of barely 3 to 4 minutes.
Such traveling is with the wish and will of God and I pray that you get to go again to Badrinath and other places and soak yourself in the beatific rays of divinity.
