Story of the Curse – Why Narada Wanders Around the Earth?

Sage Narada always wanders around the earth and never resides in a single location. It is said that the Narada is forced to wander around the earth due to a curse by Daksha Prajapati. Brahma asked Daksha to create subjects or living beings. He thus created Devas, hermits, Asuras, serpents and numerous other living beings from his mind.


But none of the subjects created by Daksha Prajapati was procreating. So he decided to create subjects through the coition of male and female. He thus had five thousand sons by his wife Akini. They were called the Haryasvas. They were to procreate but Sage Narada appeared before them. He suggested to them that they were mere children and they did not have any knowledge of the ways of the world. He told them that they had the power to go up, down and sideways.

Curse of Goddess Dhari Devi and Uttarakhand Floods – Coincidence or Warning

There is a talk among local people that the flood in Uttarakhand in June 2013 is due to the anger of Goddess Dhari Devi. She is the guardian deity of the region. On June 16, 2013, the murti of Goddess Dhari Devi was evicted to construct a hydel power project. Government plans to shift the temple. Hours before the cloud burst and flash flood, the government had removed the visible part of the murti from the temple. Is it a mere coincidence or warning? Is it a warning by Mother Earth to stop looting her. 
Goddess Dhari Devi is a guardian deity and is believed to be the manifestation of Goddess Kali. She is the protector of the Hills and the living beings that reside there. She is also the guardian of the Char Dham Temples.
People are of the view that the region faced the floods and rain due to the ire of Goddess Dhari Devi.

The temple was located around 19 km from Srinagar in Pauri Garhwal.

Only they are pure who have completely cleansed their thinking – Sant Kabirdas

You haven’t puzzled out any of the weaver’s secrets: It took Him a mere moment to stretch out the whole universe on His loom.
Kabir says, I have convince my heart to be content: For when the heart is content it comprehends Hari
Only they are pure who have completely cleansed their thinking.
Do not be proud of your wealth and do not laugh at any pauper; your boat is still rocking in the ocean and you don’t know what can happen.
Kabir
