Shri Naina Devi Mandir, Bilaspur H.P
Shree Naina Devi Ji, the Kuldevi of millions of Hindus throughout the globe. The mandir is located on the top of a hill at an altitude of about 1200 meters. It was built by King Bir Chand of the Chandel dynasty in the 8th century.
Pouranik story is related to Yagna of Daksha Prajapati, Father of Devi Sati. Bhagavan Shiva was not invited by king Daksha Prajapati in that Yagna. Sati felt insulted, and she burnt herself alive in Yagna Kund, after this incident Shiva became extremely distressed.
Shiva picked the burning corpse of Devi Sati on his shoulder and started Taandava. This horrified all deities as taandava of Shiva can lead to the destruction of the universe i.e. Mahapralaya. So, they requested Bhagavan Vishnu to stop Shiva.
After, that Bhagavan Vishnu unleashed his Sudarsana Chakra that cut the body of Sati into 51 pieces. Shree Naina Devi Mandir is the place where the eyes of Devi Sati fell, So due to fallen eyes (नैन), this place is known as Shree Naina Devi.
Mandir is directly connected with the NH-205 at a distance of about 70 km from Bilaspur city, 105 Km from Chandigarh, 15 Km from Bhakhra, about 25 Km from Anandpur Sahib, and 35-40 Km from Kiratpur Sahib.
The oldest path to reach the temple from the bus stand includes hundreds of stairs and devotees climb these stairs by shouting “Jai Mata Di”. A Rope-way facility is also available which can be used to reach the top of the hill.
One of the beauties of this temple is a non-stop Langer (Free Mess) for devotees’ by temple trust which includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner free of cost. Kadhi, Daal, Rice, and Roti are the main dishes of the langer.
There are many divine places at Mandir site also many stories are also related. Which one can come to know after visiting there.

Kathgarh Shiva Temple:
Dedicated to Bhagvan Shiva and Maa Parvati. Here large Shivalingam is divided vertically in two parts. Bigger portion is worshiped as Shiva and the smaller as Parvati. Distance between two parts keeps increasing/decreasing as per changing seasons. Image
According to “Shiv Purana” there was a battle between Vishnu and Brahama for supremacy. They were about to use “Pashupat” which would have brought ruin and destruction all around. So Shiva appeared as a fire pillar between the two to stop them. @hathyogi31 Image
After that Both stopped and wanted know as to what this fire pillar is? Vishnu went to inquire the bottom and Brahma flew into the sky to have a look at the top of this fire pillar. Vishnu came back without reaching the farthest point of the pillar in the ground. @i__Mystic

Once again Nation is witnessing selfless service of @RSSorg and its Ssevaks during this #CoronaLockdown. But how many people know about Role of RSS in Freedom Struggle, this question is raised by #Leli gang & their ilks. Stay with me for answer. @RatanSharda55
I am going to tell you about a book written by @RatanSharda55 entitled "The Sangh and Swaraj- Role of RSS in Freedom Struggle". A small book of just 102 pages but bigger in content and rare information highlighting untold facts and faces of RSS and its swayamsevaks. @Aabhas24
Since no or less record of RSS work in past is available, hence confusion or misunderstanding. Ratan Shardas' book is an attempt to fill this vacuum. You'll find a rare handwritten list of Sswevaks & others killed in 1946-47 in Amritsar. @almightykarthik @rightwingchora

"सन्यासी को तो आज कोई भिक्षा भी नहीं देता, लेकिन प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी ने एक सन्यासी को पूरा उत्तरप्रदेश संभालने के लिए दे दिया,क्यों? देश @myogiadityanath जी की कार्यशैली को देखकर भूरी भूरी प्रसंशा कर रहा है, पर क्या उनके बारे में सही जानकरी रखता है। #SanataniYoddha
चलिए एक पुस्तक के बारे में बताता हूँ जो अंग्रेजी में हैरी पोर्टर की सीरीज प्रकाशित करने वाले प्रकाशन @BloomsburyIndia ने प्रकाशित की है, लेखक है @sdeo76 जिनकी 8 पुस्तके पाठकों को आकर्षित करती हैं, इन्होने ही लिखी है योगी जी प्रामाणिक जीवनी, "राज-योगी -गोरखनाथ से आदित्यनाथ तक"
इस पुस्तक की भूमिका की कुछ पंक्तियाँ ही पर्याप्त है ये बताने के लिए क्यों पढ़ना चाहिए "19 मार्च 2017 को उत्तर प्रदेश के 21 वें मुख्यमंत्री ने शपथ लेते हुए ज्यों की कहा, "मैं आदित्यनाथ योगी ईश्वर की शपथ लेता हूँ...तो बहुत से भारतीय उस अतीत में खो से गए। @hathyogi1 @desi_thug1

Hateshwari Mata : #Thread
I believe you know about "Mahisasurmardini" and how Maa Durga got this name. This temple at Hatkoti, Shimla, is dedicated to Hateshwari Mata who took Avtaara to slay Mahishasura, as per Janashrutis'. Trust me this #thread is going to mesmerize you.
The foundation of the temples was laid way back during the Gupta period (6th -9th century AD) . According to Legends, Temple was established by Pandvas during "Agyatwas" and also Janashrutis' are It was set up by Adi Shankaracharya.
Interesting fact about Astadhatu idol "it changes its expression" sometimes"has a smiling face and sometimes a angry posture" the idol has such effect on the devotee that he take off his eyes from the idol. On both sides of the idol there is something written in Brahmi script.
