This has happened mostly on the night of the 16th of June, 2013 and the morning of 17th of June, 2013. We can readily see the causes of this Act of God with the techniques of Vedic/ Hindu/ Indian astrology. The Hindu horoscope for the time when the worst down-surge of water came down from a lake right above the Kedāranātha Temple is given below-
The Moon is in Rāśi Saṅdhi and has entered the sign of Kanyā/ Kanya/ Virgo which is associated with natural disasters as Mercury/ Budha the lord rules the Pṛthwi Tattwa (earth element) and all natural disasters can be traced to it. Another reason is that planets transiting Virgo are enroute to the airy worlds of Tulā Rāśi/ Tula Rashi/ Libra which is completely overwhelmed with the airy/ windy Śani and Rāhu (Shani and Rahu/ Saturn and Rahu) which embody the Vāyu Tattwa.
Not only was the Moon in a heightened state of agitation with the Rāśi Saṅdhi/ Rashi Sandhi it was agitated with the awareness of the impending Libra and not just that but the Śrāddha Yoga of Śani and Rāhu. All the departed, and thousands are believed to have died in the floods and the glacial release, will find leaving this world a hard task with the Śrāddha Yoga.
Śrāddha Yoga will necessitate that remedial measures are undertaken by the surviving members of the families and appropriate rituals for the departed are duly performed because this calamity has had an impact also on the temple, the Jyotirliṅga itself. Kedāranātha/ Kedaranatha is one of the twelve Jyotirlingas in India, and corresponds to Kumbha/ Aquarius Rāśi/ Rashi.
The damage around this Jyotirlṅga/ Jyotirlinga clearly indicates the influence of the Śrāddha/ Shraddha Yoga since both Śani and Rāhu/ Shani and Rahu, the lords of Kumbha are constituents of the Śrāddha Yoga. However, the deity and the temple, the Garbhagṛha/ Garbhagraha are entirely undamaged. Even Naṅdī/ Nandi within is intact. The reasons for this range from the pragmatic-large boulders and stones and rocks came down with the floods and stopped at the back of the temple, diverting the speedy, devastating currents to either side of the temple...to those rooted in devotion to the Hindu way of life-the magic of Śivā/ Shiva, the strength of India Vāstu Śāstra/ Vastu Shastra to the excellence of the architecture.
Here, we simply record our gratitude to Śiva and let it rest at that.
