                      Garhwali Folk Tale about Silsu Divta
Garhwali Folk Tales, Fables, Traditional Stories, Community Narratives -78

  Compiled and Edited by: Bhishma Kukreti (Management Training Expert)
(Narrated by R. Diswal of Silsu and Tirath Mani Bhatt Kande-Kadti)

                Silsu Divta or Silsu deity temples are in two villages- Silsu (Banelsyun, Pauri Garhwal) and Kadti (Malla Dhangu, Pauri Garhwal).
          Many times, by an oversight, the folk story informer misperceives Silsu deity as Danda Nagraja as the priests for both the deity temples are from same family of Silsu. However, Silsu deity is related to Krishna and Danda Nagraja is related to nag or Shshnag.
 The story of establishing of Silsu temple is very interesting.
         On that time, Diswal caste people were not there in the village Silsu. Only, Silswal caste people were living in Silsu. One day, a Surya Chinhit Thali   (Silver dish of Sun deity) flowed from Badrinath region towards Vyaschatti (Meeting place of Ganga and Nayar Rivers). The plate was flowing in whirlpool of Ganga in Vyaschatti for many days. The Sayan of Slsu (village or family chief) saw a dream that a Big Silver plate with Sun Signs was floating many days in Ganga whirlpool in Vyaschatti. The Sun sign Silver plate was asking Silsu Sayana to take out it from Ganga whirlpool. Silsu Sayana told the dream to his fellow villagers and everybody became happy that Silsu divta has come to their territory.
         All villagers joined together with Dhol and Damau musical instruments. They started their journey towards from Silsu village (at height, two three miles away from Vyaschatti valley) towards Vyaschatti. Silsu villagers were dancing on the tune of Dhol and Damau. They reached to Vyaschatti. The villagers reached to Ganga river bank. The Silsu Sayana and his fellow swimmers jumped into Ganga River. Sayana and villagers reached to whirlpool. Nobody was afraid of whirlpool. The village swimmers took out Silver Plate with Sun signs.
That day was also Baishakhi or Bikhot day (14th April).
  Villagers took out the Silver plate and had rituals worshipping Sun plate or Silsu Divta. Again, the Sayan took Silsu Divta Thali (Silver Dish) and bathed it into Ganga. Then Silsu villagers put the Silsu Divta or Silver Dish on a Palki/Pinhas and started the journey towards Silsu village from Vyaschatti. Now, the villagers had flags, seven Bhakora (long copper horn) with them and were marching towards Silsu as winner. Villagers were dancing with great pleasure. The procession reached towards Ancchar temple and walked five times around Ancchar temple. (It is said that Ancchar is nephew of Silsu Divta).
 The procession reached to Silsu village and people put Silver Dish under a Peeple (Fig) tree. They established flag rods and Bhankora on the ground. They performed ending rituals o f Silsu divta. Now, Silsu temple without building was established in Silsu village on Baishakhi day.
From that day, on every Baishakhi day, early in morning Silsu people take Silsu Divta (Silver Dish) in a well decorated Pinhas to Vyaschatti and get Silver Dish (Silsu Divta) dip into Ganga and then place Pinhas with Silver Dish for devotees to pay tribute of Silsu Divta. Then again the priest takes Dish for bathing into Ganga. Then procession starts towards Silsu from Vyaschatti. It is customary that while the procession is for reaching to Vyaschatti from Silsu, no Bhankora is played. However, while in return to Silsu, Bhankora are played.

 Religious Garhwali Folk Tales about Establishing of Banchuri Devi Temple
   
Garhwali Folk Tales, Fables, Traditional Stories, Community Narratives -80

  Compiled and Edited by: Bhishma Kukreti (Management Training Expert)
(Narrated by Shri Shiv Charan Kukreti of Kathud, Malla Dhangu, Pauri Garhwal)

                Banchuri village is situated in Udaypur Patti of South Pauri Garhwal. Lakheda caste people are inhabitants of Banchuri village.
     Long back, there was no temple for Devi goddess in Banchuri but today, there is a Devi temple in Banchuri.
 Banchuri people were Devi devotees and wished to have Devi temple in their own village. However, without Devi Chinha (symbolic instruments of Devi) from other Devi temple, it was not possible to establish Devi temple in the village.
       The Banchuri village chief Banchuri called a meeting to find the ways and means for establishing Devi temple in the village. It was decided in the meeting that four five villagers would visit Kathud Bada village (Malla Dhangu, Pauri Garhwal) and steal  the Devi Chinha from Kathud Devi temple. Kathud Baa is eight-nine miles far from Banchuri. The Kathud Devi temple is situated on north direction, top above the village. On the way from Banchuri to Kathud, Hinwal River flows. Hinwal is dividing factor between Udaypur and Dhangu Pattis.
   In one night, Banchuri villagers reached to Kathud Devi temple. They first performed the rituals for Devi. They said sorry to Devi for stealing Devi Chinha.
In the mean time, Devi called the Kathud people that Banchuri people are taking her a couple of Chinha (Symbolic instruments). Devi asked Kathud people to catch the Banchuri people before they cross Hinwal River.
Kathud people started meeting in the village.
Banchuri villagers took a couple of Devi symbols from the temple and ran away towards Udaypur Patti.
Kathud people reached to Devi temple and found that a couple of Devi Chinha (Symbols) were stolen from Devi temple. They ran following Banchuri villagers. However, before Kathud villagers could catch Banchuri villager, Banchuri villagers had already crossed Hinwal River at Gadbadeth.
 Banchuri villagers came to their village with a couple of Devi Symbols and establish Devi temple in Banchuri.
 This is the reason that Banchuri Devi and Kathud Devi are called Sisters.

Dhoundiyal was also a Karmkandi Pundit and he had Jajmans in the region. Dhoundiyal family had only one daughter. She was married to a Dobhal of Dobha, Idwalsyun. Her husband had a step brother. Both brothers had stern quarrels all the time. Dobhal the son in law of Dhoundiyal came to Borikh and strated residing with his father in law.
 After some time, Dhoundiyal wife or mother in law of Dobhal died. Before the death, Dhoundiyal rewarded his all land and Jajmani to his son law (Dobhal).
There are ruins of Dhoundiyal’s building and is called Khandwari.
This is one of two folk stories of Dobhal settling in Borikh.

               There is a temple called Jabaleshwar Mahadev temple at Jabal River bank north of Borikh. The temple is famous for its long, high and round Shiv Ling. It is said that Shiv Ling emerged from Jabla River. There is a folk tale about establishment of Jableshwar temple.
   The story states that one night, Pundit Jay Krishna Dobhal of Borikh saw a dream. Lord informed Jay Krishna that there is a Shiv Ling lying in Jabla River. Lord ordered Jay Krishna to take Shiv Ling and establish it at appropriate place. In morning, Jaya Krishna Dobhal went to Jabla River and found Shiva Ling. Next day, the villagers of Borikh, Raud, Hitoli, Bagwanu, Jhatkandi, Tangoli, Dangi and Saknauli villages came to the site where Shiv Ling was lying. The villagers of above villages came with dancing on the tune of Damru, Thali, Dhol, Damau and Shinai. People were happy to see the Shiv Ling.   
  Villagers reached to Shiv Ling site in the middle of Jabla River that they would disestablish Shiv Ling and establish at proper place. Villagers started to move the Shiv Ling but could not move Shiv Ling at all. Pundit Jay Krishna Dobhal also tried to move the Shiv Ling. Nobody could move Shiv Ling either alone or collectively.
     Jay Krishna Dobhal started performing Shiva ritual with pious emotion. Now, when villagers started to move Shiva Ling it was moving slightly but was not getting out from its place.
           Jay Krishna Dobhal started discussing with Shiva Ling in a secret language. Shiva accepted the request of Jaya Krishna. Now, Jaya Krishna Dobhal ordered to villagers to move Shiva Ling. Villagers touched Shiva Ling and Shiva Ling started moving.  Now, villagers took the heavy Shiva Ling collectively and put Shiva Ling there only at bank of Jabla River. Villagers built a Shiva temple there called Jableshwar Mahadev Mandir.
