Baba Amarnath Barfani died prematurely

The effect of record breaking extreme heat is being seen on the ongoing annual Amarnath Yatra in Kashmir. This year also Baba Barfa has died prematurely. A clear proof of this can be found from the video of Baba Barfani released on YouTube by the Amarnath Shrine Board. In the video of June 30, Baba Barfani is clearly visible, but now Shivlinga is not visible.

It may be mentioned that this is the first time that Baba Barfani has disappeared within seven days of the start of the holy Amarnath Yatra. Baba Barfani died in 2008 within ten days of the start of the Yatra. In 2023, Baba Barfani disappeared in 14 days. While in the year 2016, he went missing after 13 days. Undoubtedly, the devotees coming to Amarnath after Baba’s disappearance will have the darshan of the holy cave.

Weather is said to be one of the main reasons behind Baba Barfani’s untimely death on the Amarnath Yatra. Low snowfall in mid-winter last year and recent record-breaking extreme heat in the Kashmir division have affected the size of Baba Barfani. Let us tell you that this week the heat has broken a 25-year record in Srinagar, Kashmir division, while the heat has broken a 35-year record in the districts of South Kashmir.

It may be noted that this year the annual Amarnath Ji Yatra started from 29 June 2024 and the yatra will end on 19 August. The number of devotees visiting Baba Barfani in the last 6 days has unofficially crossed 1.50 lakh. It is believed that the holy cave of Amarnath is 90 feet long and 150 feet high. It is believed that drops of water dripped into the cave, due to which the Shivlinga was formed. After that, with the waxing and waning of the moon, the shape of the Shivlinga made of ice changes.
