(95) It appeared that Lord Nārāyaṇa was sitting in Badarikāśrama surrounded by His disciples headed by Sanaka.

Badarikāśrama is situated on the western bank of the Alakanandā River in the northernmost side of the Himalayas, past Haridvāra and Hṛṣīkeśa in the hilly regions of Kumāyun and Gaḍaoala districts. The āśrama of Badri-Nārāyaṇa (Nara-Nārāyaṇa) is situated there. The disciplic succession of Lord Nārāyaṇa, headed by Vyāsa and the four Kumāras, engage in worshiping the Supreme Lord at this place. They are situated in this world on Nārāyaṇa’s four sides as His associates.
