The holy month of Sawan is considered to be important for the devotees of Lord Shiva. In this case, the worship of Lord Shiva is performed with great pomp during this month. His 12 Jyotirlinga is also worshipped in full force and today we are going to tell you the story of two of them about the history of Jyotirlinga. Let's know.
*Omkareshwar Jyotirlinga- According to the Puranas, the Vindhya mountains worshipped and performed penance in the form of the terrestrial linga of Lord Shiva, so Lord Shiva appeared and blessed him and was enthralled as Pranav Ling. After the prayer of the gods, the Shivalinga was divided into 2 parts and one part was called Omkareshwar and the other part was called Mamaleshwar, in which Jyotilinga was born in Onkareshwar and Parthiv Ling Amareshwar/Sampath. According to other legends, The King of the Ikshwaku dynasty, Mandhata, performed rigorous penance on the banks of the Narmada river and then Lord Shiva blessed him. There are 68 pilgrimages. There are 33 million deity dwellings, including the family. Onkareshwar is the best pilgrimage in the Narmada region.
*Mahakaleshwar- This Jyotirlinga is in Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh. It is said that whoever observes this Jyotirlinga gets salvation. In the Mahabharata, Mahakavi Kalidas praised the temple while referring to Ujjaini in Meghdoot. There is no more Jyotirlinga than the Tarak Ling in the sky, the Hatkeshwar linga in The Patal and Mahakaleshwar on earth, which is why Mahakaleshwar is called the Overlord of the Earth. According to the belief, the masters of the south direction are Lord Yamaraj himself. Only then do anyone who comes to this temple and prays to Lord Shiva with the true mind, he gets rid of the tortures that he receives after death.
