Varahaapuran (adhay 140:)
I live in kokaamukh in the base of the mountain at the intersection of "kokaa river" and "kausiki river" and will be known as Badri
This intersection is currently locted at Nepal in a place "Varahaachetra."
Varahapuran adhay 141.1: (In hindi) "Usi himalaya parvat par, ek atyant goohaya staan hey, jo devatao ke liye bhi durlabh he. Ise Badarikashrama kahete he" Translation: In the same mountain (upper part of mountain where badri is) lies Badrikashrama. If Badrikasharama lies in the same mountain as Badri then they must both be near each other meaning they are both in Nepal. .What else can be said?
So then, how is it possible that Badrinath is located in india and not in Nepal, when clearly the two rivers mentioned in the shastra/Purana are located in Nepal?
Note: I do not wish to offend anyone regarding my question. Our current thirthas are as holy regardless of their authenticity and I respect their location. Being a Hindu, I would never disrespect any thirth just because they do not match with shastras. Many thirthas have changed locations and this is why I try to find their original location. Sorry if I have offended anybody.
