From Belief to Blessing: Pilgrims Embrace the Chance for Baba Amarnath’s Darshan

We had only heard about the Amarnath yatra in stories. I never thought that I would be able to come and visit here in person, a female pilgrim said. This time we have got a chance to see God, the feeling is very good. Who doesn’t want to have darshan of Baba Amarnath? We are very lucky we are able to have darshan, the female pilgrim said. Another female pilgrim said how the weather had turned bad and we thought we would not be able to go. I did jaap of ‘Om Namah Shivay’ for 108 times. Half an hour later, the weather cleared up. I have full faith in Bholenath, the female pilgrim said that everything will be good and everyone will have a good journey with the grace of God. There is a lot of enthusiasm in me. I feel like flying to reach there soon for Baba‘s darshan. This has happened to me a lot of times. During childhood I had heard a lot of stories that in Amarnath when Lord Shiva had recited the Amarnath katha to Ma Parvati then two pigeons had heard the stories. I had heard many stories like this and since childhood I had this thought that one day I will visit Amarnath shrine. Until now I never got a chance to come here. Luckily, courtesy my husband and it was the grace of God that I reached here. I can’t tell you about this experience, I can’t explain how it feels. Maybe I deserve that is why he has called me. It’s a big thing for me to be here, said another female pilgrim. A male pilgrim said he walked from Pahalgam to Amarnath cave. I had great pleasure. I am enjoying the service a lot. The Sewadars also give very good service. After darshan I returned to the base camp. If you are coming to Baba, then you have to bear some difficulties. Because of this one gets the darshan of Bhole, believes the male pilgrim and it brings blessings. I also got it, said the pilgrim. Another male pilgrim talked about his second yatra experience. This is my second yatra. Earlier I had taken the helicopter ride to the cave. For the first time I am walking. There are a lot of changes from 2019 and now. This time in 2023 the management and administration guideline has arranged the yatra to go in a proper manner. Earlier, seeing people going, the public was going, observed the man. This time the administration is releasing the yatris slowly. Female pilgrims said till now they have been very comfortable from administration to security point of view.
