Some information about Pandharpur Warkari and Asadha Ekadashi :

Thousands of people called varkari reach Pandharpur from
Alandi and Dehu after walking for about 250km in Aashad (a hindu month) Ekadashi (11th day of the moon). They walk with palkhis carrying padukas of the saints singing sacred songs.

Who are Warkaris?

Warkari is a sampradaya within the bhakti spiritual tradition of Hinduism, geographically associated with the Indian state of Maharashtra. Warkaris worship Vitthal, the presiding deity of Pandharpur, regarded as a form of Krishna.

Where is Pandharpur located?

Pandharpur is located in the state of Maharashtra about 211km from Pune and 360kms from Mumbai.

Pandharpur Wari is a yatra to Pandharpur, Maharashtra, to honor Lord Vitthal. It involves carrying the paduka of a saint in a palkhi, most notably of Dnyaneshwar and Tukaram, from their respective places to Pandharpur.

Many varkaris join this palkhi on foot. Warkari is a Marathi term which means “one who performs the wari”. The tradition is believed to be more than 700 to 800 years old.

The walk

This is the part that holds the highest significance of Pandharpur Waari and the part where the magic happens. This walk is not just an escape from reality for lakhs of people. It is something that keeps them focused and connected to a power bigger than them. People spend 21 days on the road withering bad weather with no luxuries like hotels or rich food. This walk to the Vitthala temple in Maharashtra reaffirms the faith of countless people.

According to me “This is not a walk of blind faith, but the Pandharpur Waari is a walk of love and showing respect to Lord Vitthal.”

The experience of Pandharpur Waari

Going to the Pandharpur Waari can make us see that there is more to living life. Also, you experience a feeling of unity, of togetherness, of peace and celebration.

People from the varkaari community play games, musical instruments, dance, laugh. They have nowhere to be, no deadlines to meet, no bosses to impress. They are just living and it shows in their eyes. You just have to look into their eyes to know what I am talking about is true. This walk is not just about God, the Padukas, the Palkhis, the Varkari community and their temple. It’s about life and the meaning we attach to it.

Why should every people attend waari ?

The journey to Vitthala temple in Maharashtra is one where you can lose control. Where you can go with the flow without a care in the world! Furthermore, it is where you feel being taken care of by the Universe itself and where you can just be. Spirituality is not always sitting in an isolated cave and meditating in the name of God for years. Just like Lord Krishna explained to Arjuna in Bhagavad Gita, there are many ways you can attain Moksha.

सर्वांनी विठ्ठल भक्तांना २०२४ आषाढ एकादशीच्या हार्दिक शुभेच्छा 🕉️🙏
जय जय विठ्ठल जय हरी विठ्ठल 🕉️🙏

For your views....
