Penance of sage Narada

(Ref: Skanda Purana - Badarikashrama Mahatmya - 2)

Badrinath DhamMeditation: I meditate on the penance of sage Narada at Badarikashrama for sixty thousand years and the appearance of Lord Narayana blessing him with the boon of unflinching devotion to His lotus feet.

Penance of sage Narada at Badarikashrama (Naradi shila): Once sage Narada performed a severe penance at Badari to get the vision of Lord Vishnu. He stood on a rock taking only air and products of trees for sixty thousand years. Lord Vishnu initially came in the form of a brahmana and later revealed His true form to sage Narada. Narada eulogized the Lord with various hymns. The Lord told Narada to ask for a boon. Narada asked for unflinching devotion to His lotus feet and His presence in the rock where he performed penance. The Lord granted the boon and thus was Narada tirtha created.
