One of the holiest pilgrimages for the Hindus, Kedarnath Temple Jyotirlinga is located in the picturesque surroundings of Rudra Himalaya Range at a height of 12000 feet on a mountain named Kedar.
The temple at Kedarnath enshrining the Jyotirlingam of Shiva opens only 6 months a year (April-November). The priests then go to Ukhimath, where the worship of Kedareshwara is continued during the winter season. Tradition has it that pilgrims first visit Yamunotri and Gangotri and bring with them the holy waters from Yamuna and Ganga and offer abhishek to Shri Kedareshwara.
Legend goes that Nara and Narayana - two incarnations of Shri Vishnu performed severe penance in Badrikasharaya of Bharat Khand, in front of a Shivalingam fashioned out of earth. Pleased with their devotion, Lord Shiva appeared and said that they may ask for a boon. Nar and Narayan requested Shiva to take up a permanent abode as a Jyotirlingam at Kedarnath so that all people who worship Shiva shall be freed from their miseries.
As per another legend, Goddess Parvati worshipped Kedareshwar to unite with Shiva as Ardhanareeswarar. Besides, the Pandavas are believed to have visited this area several times. Arjuna is believed to have come here to pray to Shiva to obtain the coveted Pasupataastra.
Acc to most popular legend, the place came into being during the period when the five Pandavas brothers were asked to seek Shiva’s blessings purging them of the sin of killing their cousins. Lord Shiva unwilling to give darshans to the Pandavas fled Kashi to live incognito in Guptkashi, where eventually he was detected by the Pandavas.
It is believed that by praying to Kedareshwar, one can get all his desires fulfilled. 🌀✨🕉🐚🙏🏻
The hallway. It’s pretty small dark and most of the time we’re just passing through it. But when it comes to my Yoga it’s a magical place 🧘♀️☺️.#יוגה

https://youtu.be/EWQleTYrY2I “I forgot how to be enough for myself. Until one day I discovered...."you're the only one worth it to me now...." was about me. I had to decide to fully love myself, remove toxins from my life and embark on a journey that required me to say no and be ok with it. I had to put myself before my job.......because.....dance isn't my job. It's my passion. I mean...when did it become about impressing everyone else? Dance=Freedom. (You matter. Love yourself. Celebrate. DANCE!)” #enough#iforgot#loveyourself#love#itsok#blessed#worthit#beautiful#inspiration#powerful
Ik ben moeder van twee prachtige meisjes. Een kleintje van een aantal maandjes. En een kleintje van 2 jaar. Twee lieverds in m'n leven. En soms .. heel soms voelt dit nog wel eens onwerkelijk. Moeder zijn van twee kleintjes. Alleen. Een voorbeeld. Hun voorbeeld. Ik ben hun centrum en de gedachte hierin dat het dan ook zo ontzettend belangrijk is dat ik de juiste invloed op m'n kindjes heb en ze het juiste mee geef in dit leven blijft me dan ook altijd bij.
The lessons that daughters learn from their mothers are not always obvious. The mother has an incredible power to influence her daughter, not only by teaching her things but also by providing her with a good personal example. Behind every confident daughter hides a strong and confident women.
Thats what i want to see in my daughters
En daar streef ik dan ook naar om zowel het beste uit m'n zelf te halen als mens vrouw en moeder. Zodat mijn dochters ook altijd het beste bij hun zelf naar boven zullen halen en weten hoe ongelofelijk prachtig en krachtig ze zijn omdat ik de vrouw ben die achter hun sta.
