Penance of Agni Deva

(Ref: Skanda Purana - Badarikashrama Mahatmya - 2)

Badrinath DhamMeditation: I meditate on the penance of Agni Deva at Badarikashrama and the appearance of Lord Narayana blessing him that he will not incur any sins due to his omnivorousness.

Penance of Agni Deva at Badarikashrama (Agnitirtha): Once Agni Deva wanted to get rid of his sins due to his omnivorousness. He consulted an assembly of great sages. Sage Vyasa told Agni Deva to go to Badari. Agni Deva went to mount Gandhamadana and arrived at Badari. After taking bath in the holy waters of river Ganga, he went to the hermitage of Lord Narayana and eulogized the Lord. Lord Narayana was pleased and told Agni Deva to choose a boon. Agni asked about a way of redemption due to his sin of omnivorousness. Lord Narayana said that seeing this holy spot his sins will get destroyed and by His grace he will not incur any sin. Thereafter Agni Deva made his abode there (at Agnitirtha).
