Pilgrimage to Vaishno Devi

Dr Prasanjit De.

Pilgrimage is a quest and expression of one’s faith.  The Vaishno Devi shrine is one such pilgrimage that has attracted so many devotees years after years by its invisible force. It was our second visit to the shrine. We had chosen the month of January as there is less rush of piligrims during this time of the year. During our last visit we couldn’t visit the Bhairon baba temple- partly due to our ignorance. It is believed that the pilgrimage to Vaishno Devi is not considered complete without a visit to the Bhairon temple. This time we planned our itinerary as such.

The very sight of the cloud-clad Vaishno Devi temple from a distance is heavenly. We had reached the temple in the evening. After darshan of the Goddess, we retired early for the night into one of the shrine board guest houses that we had booked. We started quite early the next morning for the next phase of our journey so that we could reach Katra by afternoon. There were hardly any people at such an early hour. Freshened by the chilly winter breeze, we were trudging along with prayers in our hearts towards the Bhairon Baba temple. 

Suddenly, we came across a langur on the wayside trapped by vines. Apparently, the langur looked tired and listless from its long struggle in the wintry night to set itself free. My first reaction was help the simian. But my family members wouldn’t allow me to do so for fear that the wild animal could bite. Reluctantly, I gave up and decided to move forward. We had trudged around fifty steps, when my uncle sensing my dismal asked me to go back and set the langur free! I rushed back to do the same. I was trying my best to untangle the langur in vain. I looked around for someone but there was no one. The very next moment I was startled when someone patted me on my back and asked me what I was doing. I said that I was trying to free Hanuman ji! He smiled and asked me to step aside. Then with a single pull with his strong arms, he set the langur free! I was dumbstruck with awe and reverence. Many people will probably disagree, but for me, He was no other than Lord Rama who had come to help his devotees on that fateful day!
