Pilgrimage Char Dham Yatra postponed - what to do?

The pious Char Dham, which is believed by Hindus to provide moksha (i.e. freedom from the cycle of death and rebirth) has been postponed amidst Covid surge.


This pilgrimage was scheduled to begin next month, but considering the deplorable situation of Covid in the nation and the rapidly rising cases and deaths, the Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat observed that this will not be possible.

The pilgrimage consists of four shrines which must be visited in a specified order. The four Dhams are Badrinath, Dwaraka, Puri and Rameswaram.

The portals of the four Himalayan temples will open as scheduled, but not for devotees but only priests to continue the regular prayers.

All in all, this is a good time to take care of yourself and your family and recite the name of your chosen God in your heart in the privacy of your home.
