Mahavatar Babaji and the 6000 year old idol at the Badrinath temple



Legend has it that somewhere close to Badrinath there exists The Mahavatar Babaji—the eternal deathless master

The world first heard about Babaji courtesy Paramahansa Yogananda's book “Autobiography of a Yogi” {most read autobiography in the world} and Sri Yukteswar Giri’s book “The Holy Science”.

since then Babaji has become a very big name in the spiritual super market.

below is the sketch of Babaji from the book “Autobiography of a Yogi”



Mahaavatar Babaji




Ravalji {head priest of the badrinath temple} has a very old drawing of the idol of the Badrinath temple.


Initially drawn as a pencil sketch by a Ravalji at an earlier time .  it is said that after drawing this sketch he went into the Himalayas, never to return. This pencil sketch is undated and is said to be very old.

below is the photo of the original sketch

below are photos of the head priest showing the sketch {which has now been coloured } to visitors











        














Why is there a Striking resemblance between the drawing of the Badrinath idol and Babaji ?


Is it that the meditating Vishnu at the Badrinath temple {idol} manifests himself in flesh and blood as the Mahaavatar  Babaji ……………….



Some questions remain unanswered till ……………………………….one day when…………………………..
