Chairman's Message

JAI BADARI - KEDAR!

Shri Mohan Prasad Thapliyal

Chairman BKTC

Thank you in anticipation of the interest we hope to receive from your side.

Shri Kedarnathji, one of the twelve highly revered JYOTIRLINGAS, is situated at the high altitude and is the shrine where Pandavas after the victory in Mahabharata offered puja for purification of their souls for the sin of killings at that epic war.

Shri Badarinathji holds the greatest significance among the four DHAMs established by Adi Shankarachrya and is considered to be the only MOKSHA Dham. It is here that LORD VISHNU observed TAPASYA and infused the area with divine energy and instant blessings for all who visit here. The holiest of the rivers, the Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati emanate from this region. The Badarinath and the Kedarnath temples have other 45 temples of PAURANIC period.

In fact this holy Himalayan region has the sanctity of being called Dev Bhoomi. However the believers of Sanatan Dharma, the Hindus, and the modern-day tension laden human beings need to be reminded of the divine bliss and unexplored wonders which they would find here.

Despite the inherent divinity and serenity the holy temples, ghats and the dharmshalas here are in a dilapidated condition with inadequate pilgrim facilities. Hence Shri Badarinath - Shri Kedarnath Mandir Samiti, a Government body, has decided to request the SANATAN DHARMA followers in India and throughout the world to donate generously at these twin pilgrim centers. We invite you to join this divine movement launched by Shri Badarinath - Shri Kedarnath Temples Committee.I wish to inform that you can now make online donation through this portal.

With help and goodwill of DEVOTEES we propose the following immediate steps for comfort and safety of visiting pilgrims and proper maintaenance of temples.

  1. Keeping in mind the inclement and cold Himalayan weather,provide overhead sheds along the Parikrama and the open spaces of queuing and waiting of Pilgrims.
  2. Build public utilities and benches for relaxation along the route to temples and arrange for clean upkeep of the Mandir Campuses.
  3. Build Night Shelters (Rainbaseras) at BADARIPURI and KEDAR DHAM for poor pilgrims, with Bhandara ie., free food and blankets.
  4. Provide medical facilities, ambulances, Oxygen cycles and first aid kits to pilgrims at both shrines
  5. Total computerization of MANDIR assets, collections and registration of various PUJAs and statisics of pilgrims visiting the shrines.
  6. The BKTC is running five Sanskrit pathshalas, an Ayurvedic Pharmacy and Ayurvedic Diploma Course. These need to strengthened and their activities have to be streamlined and improvide on holistic lines.
  7. As this is a very backward hilly area, there is a proposal to start some residential schools on GURUKUL model.
  8. The BKTC maintains 45 other temples and 20 Dharamshalas at various places in Uttarakhand, which need funds for their maintaenance, renovations and upgradation.

At the end, while inviting you to visit Shri BADARI-KEDAR, I again wish to thank you and request you to contribute generously and make the Badari-Kedar YATRA happier/comfortable and doubly blessed for the pilgrims. Also recommend our common cause to some of your blessed and WORTHY FRIENDS who will ever remain an asset to the divine cause and to the SANATAN DHARMA."
