AUM HRIM SHRIM SHRI SHARADA VARNATMIKAYAI NAMAH
*Chaman Lal Raina
Sharad Kumud Lochanaayai Namah
Namaskar to the Divine Mother Sharada, whose eyes look like the Sharad Kumud-the lotus of the autumn season. The Markandeya Purana puts emphasis on the Shardiya Puja of Nine days known as the Anushthhans or invocation of the Nava Ratra, which falls in the Shukla Paksha of Ashvin, of the Sharad Ritu/ season. Sharad means Paripakvata or maturity. The maturity can be of thought, word and deed with respect to time, place and situation. This is the beauty of Sharada Devi.

What can we all do to preserve historical sites like Sharda Devi which are in POK and are in deteriorating condition? Writers and publications need to raise awareness and thanks Chaman Rainaji in doing this great service to Hindu community.

This subject is related to the roots of KP's living now all over world, and nothing has been done so far to maintain the historic site at community or government level, the photographs reveal the pathetic condition. The Goddess in Yantra is undoubtedly tribute to the place of highest learning and reflects volumes of this site.Your efforts are all out to raise the voice.So far so good.
