The deathly silence brooding over Kedarnath for the past 86 days since the June calamity hit Uttarakhand broke on Wednesday by the chanting of Vedic hymns as prayers resumed at the Himalayan shrine.The Puja began with a 'shuddhikaran' of the temple and 'prayashchitikaran' (atonement for prolonged suspension of prayers at the shrine). 'Teerth' purohits and Badrinath Kedarnath Samiti officials accompanied the chief priest as the prayers resumed. The resumption of prayers was however of limited nature, as no pilgrim was being allowed to visit the famed Himalayan temple. The date for resumption of Yatra to the temple will be decided in a meeting scheduled to be held on September 30.
