12 Jyotirlinga Ram Katha with Morari Bapu in Tamil Nadu

The epitome of spirituality and a symbol of faith for both Vaishnavas and Shaivites, Rameswaram hosts the holy site for one of 12 Jyotirlinga, worshipped and established by Lord Rama himself. To spread the word of holy Ramcharitmanas and sing the glory of teachings of Lord Rama, Morari Bapu, renowned Spiritual Guru is on a one-of-kind journey. The 12 Jyotirlinga Ram Katha is stretched across the holy sites of 12 jyotirlinga, and is aimed to connect the devotees across the country, from different walks of life to come together in celebration of the rich cultural heritage of our country and get in touch with the spiritual power that proliferates the essence of this ancient nation. 

Set in the auspicious month of Adhik Sawan, the Yatra started from 22nd July and has covered the holy sites of Kedarnath, Varanasi, Baidya Nath, Mallikarjuna in Andhra Pradesh and Jagannath Puri. The yatra is expected to cover more than 12,000 km in just 18 days. On its next leg of the journey, the spiritual passage is now arriving to Rameswaram, Tamil Nadu on 29th July. The Katha will be open to the public and the timings will be from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm, followed by bhandara. 

Shivapuran has mentioned 64 original Jyotirlinga to be present in India, of which 12 are the most auspicious and holy. In Hinduism, the devotees consider Jyotirlinga to be the most sacred devotional depiction of Lord Shiva in Hinduism. Whereas each 12 jyotirlinga is considered to be a different manifestation of Lord Shiva, there is one common theme prevalent across all these sites, the primary image of lingam and endless stambha, which represents the infinite nature of Lord Shiva. 

Facilitated by two special trains named Kailash Bharat Gaurav and Chitrakoot Bharat Gaurav devotees will be able to join directly at the location along the route. Morari Bapu, through this visionary initiative, aims to explore the intricacies and glory of Sanatan Dharma, spread the word of wisdom from the ancient scriptures and instill in the minds of the devotees, the inter-connectedness of Lord Rama and Jyotirlinga, drawing together two prominent sects of Hinduism- Vaishnavas and Shaivites together.

Trains wrapped in the rich vinyl covers displaying the cultural heritage of the country, 12 jyotirlinga and the spiritual dhams, the yatra will see the amalgamation of diverse cultures from across the country as the devotees come together to share experiences and create a spiritual atmosphere filled with chanting of mantras, hymns making the yatra a journey of spiritual growth for the devotees. 

The Katha is being organized by Bapu's flower (devotee) Rupesh Vyas from Indore through the Aadesh Trust. He has been working tirelessly with IRCTC to make this Jyotirlinga Ram Katha Yatra a success.
