Travel story: Sharda Devi, Neelam, Sharda History Bright chapter of the past, Jammu & Kashmir

(Sharda Devi)

Sharda Devi is a bright chapter of the past (May 3, 2019). Many historians have written a lot on the history of Sharda Peeth. After reading the books of many historians regarding Sharda Devi, I came here to take a detailed look at this place and see this place. My relationship with Sharda Devi is very close but Sharda: 

No teacher, no friend, no dear relatives, but the real friend of mine, the historical books that have taken me so far, I think it is important to give you a brief introduction of these books. Not only Sharda but also many important historical information to benefit from.

Pandit Kalhan, a historian, researcher, intellectual and a patriotic writer of the land of Kashmir, has mentioned Sharda Devi in great detail in his book Raj Tarangani. Raj Trangani is the oldest and most authentic history of the land of Kashmir. All the information written about Sharda Devi will be posted in a separate episode.

Apart from Raj Tarangani, various stages of the pilgrimage of Goddess Sharda are mentioned in Shlokas 127 to 144 of Sharda Mahatam which are in accordance with these places. 4 Shadi Bhadas are considered to be the time when this pilgrimage is especially sacred. In addition, the fourth and fourteenth dates of the enlightened half of each month are generally considered sacred. The special feature of this yatra is that it is written in verse 88 of Sharda Mahatma and it is seen in practice that the Venshu people are also compelled to The reason for this order is that the worship of Sharda is done as a power. The pilgrimage to this temple regularly begins in the form of Bhadas. The pilgrims travel from Gush on the fourth day. Departs on and goes to the eighth Sharda Kand and marches to the edge of Madhumati.

In the book Prabhak Charat about Sharda Devi, the great Jain Fazil Ham Chandra is mentioned in the period from 1088 to 1172 when the Gujarat of Raja J. Singh (remember this is the Gujarat which is now in the Punjab province of Pakistan). When Chandra was assigned to compile a new grammar, he asked for the necessary material, which was to have eight old grammars, another name for the Goddess Saraswati of Kashmir (Goddess Saraswati is another name for Goddess Sharda, besides the same Sharda temple).

A lake which is located in Nadira mountain. There is a sacred lake which is also named as Saraswati Devi. Remember, after Sharda Devi, pilgrims used to go to Nadira lake. (Jai Singh) can be found in the library of a few high-ranking officials. He left for Parpur to bring the draft. There he reached the temple of the goddess and expressed his displeasure. The goddess herself appeared pleased with her compliments and ordered her servants to give the required books to Ham Chandra in my view. He conveyed it to Ham Chandra and after reading it compiled his great book “Sadda Ham Chandra”. It is to be remembered that Sharda Devi Kashmir before Bhavak Charat’s part was completed in the middle of the thirteenth century. I had become a famous pilgrim. 

The famous poet of Kashmir, Bilhan, who became famous in the latter half of the 11th century, mentions it in chapter 18, verse 5 of his book Vagramanik Deocharat when he was away from his homeland in Deccan. He attributed this worship of knowledge to gambling from Sharda Devi. In this place Sharda Devi is likened to a tahsil whose crown is made of shiny gold obtained from the sand of Madhumati river which competes with Ganga river. Through her fame, which shines like glass, she spreads light and proudly raises the peak of Himalayas, the father of Gauri. The meaning of this behavior is that it indicates that Bilhan was aware of the existence of this gold which flows in the river Kishan Ganga and its tributaries. 

Therefore, Bilhan has used the word “act” in his behavior. It means sand and that which is obtained by washing with sand. In the reign of Junraj, Sultan Zain-ul-Abidin (Sultan Zain-ul-Abidin) was a Muslim king of Kashmir who was known as Sultan Badshah. Sultan Zain-ul-Abidin Sharda Apart from the Goddess, he also went on a pilgrimage to Amarnath, which is mentioned in a previous inscription under the name of “Amarnath” which records the events of the reign of Sharda in the early part of the reign of 1420 to 1470. 

The manner in which this king treated the Brahmin subjects fairly is generally known. In the above mentioned Shlokas, he participated in the regular pilgrimage of this king and reached the temple of Sharda Devi in 1422 so that he could see the miracles of Sharda Devi. Looking at 1057, it is known that the form of miracles was usually that sweat was seen on the face of the goddess, her arm was shaking and when she touched her feet, she felt hot.
