Brahma Vaivarta Purana

Brahma Vaivarta Purana Brahma kanda 29 and 30 chapter contains the reason why Lord Narayan came to Badrinatha. The story begins with sage Narada requesting his Lord Narayan to perform his pastimes tapasya instead of his usual sleeping pastime Yoga Nidra . Happily, Lord Narayan made a plan and send Lakshmi devi to Nagaloka and then he left Vaikuntha to come to Badrinatha where Lord Shiva was residing. Lord Narayan came in the form of a child weeping. Parvati took compassion on then beautiful yet sorrowful child and brought him to their home. After some time the small child started crying again. At this point, Lord Shiva and Parvati thinking that child is hungry went to fetch something to appease his hunger. When both returned ,the child had locked the doors and smilingly said that now the home is his. Child requested them to relocate to another place. Understanding the child to be non different than Lord Narayan, Lord Shiva moved to Kedarnath. Not finding Lord Narayan in Vaikuntha ,Narada came to Badrinath in his search. He found Him in Badrinath performing dhyana. Narada asked lord as to who is the object of his dhyana. Narayana replied that it was He Himself. He was setting an example for the world how one must perform meditation of Narayan.
