Kedarnath Jyotirlinga:


Shiva Meditation:

- I meditate on the Kedarnath Jyotirlinga at Badaryashrama where Lord Shiva appeared before Nara and Narayana who were the incarnations of Hari.

- I meditate on the holy place of Kedarnath Jyotirlinga where Nara and Narayana worshipped Lord Shiva in a Parthiva Linga for a very long time.

- I meditate on the Kedarnath Jyotirlinga in the snow-clad Kedara mountains in the Badari forest seeing which one becomes free of all sins and finally becomes liberated.


(Shiva Purana - Koti Rudra Samhita 19)
