History of Muktinath

Muktinath temple was established during the 19th century on Mustang district, Nepal. The history of Muktinath dates back to Satya yug and related with Lord Bishnu, Lord Shiva, Jalandhar, Brindha, and Satidevi.  Sri Swastani Brata Katha – one of the holy book of Hinduism has explained the myth of Muktinath.

Myth from Holybook

According to holy book Sri Swastani Brata Katha, Jalandhar a devil has planned to cheat goddess Parvati to see her divine beauty. He went to Kailash forming Mahadev’s appearance. As soon as he saw Devi Parvati coming to wash his legs as she used to do for Mahadev, her energy and brightness couldn’t be seen from Jalandhar and he fainted there. Parbati knew the truth about Jalandhar and Lord Shiva begin a war with Jalandhar. Since Jalandhar was very powerful and Pratibrata dharma of Brindha makes Jalandhar more stronger.

To destroy the Patibrata dharma of Brinda and make Jalandhar weak, Lord Bishnu went to Brinda’s home incarnated as Jalandhar, and Talk with her about Parbati and Mahadev. Brindha knew the truth about Bishnu and locked him in a room. Again after knowing about Bishnu being locked Naradmuni came as bigger and beg Bishnu as vikshya. After few days again Bishnu came to Brinda’s home incarnating as Jalandhar. This time Bishnu became clever and don’t let her to recognized his truth. He successfully destroys Brinda’s Patribrata dharma. After the loss of Brinda’s satityo, Jalandhar became weak and Mahadev killed jalandhar.

Myth of saligram

After knowing the truth about Bishnu and the death of Jalandhar, Brindha became angry and cursed Lord Bishnu. She said Lord Bishnu to remain as Grass (Tulsi), stone (saligram), amphibian (tortoise), and many more. To remove that curse of being stone, Lord Bishnu remains as Saligram in Kaligandaki (Kagbeni) and gets rid of the curse from Brinda. It is believed that Lord Bishnu get rid of the curse from Brinda in Muktikshetra. Thus People used to visit Muktinath to worship Lord Bishnu to get rid of a chain of life and death.  Today also we can see Hindu worship saligram as lord Bishnu in their home. They called saligram as panchayan deuta. Most of the pilgrims collect saligram from Kagbeni to worship regularly it in their homes.
