At the same time, the Shiva Purana also states that lamps should be lit near the Shivling during the night. Today we're going to tell you the story behind it, which you'll start following after you hear it.
The story of The Shiv Puran: In ancient times, a person named Gudnidhi was very poor. He was searching for food for himself and his family. he got up at night in search of food and stopped there at a Shiva temple. Gudnidhi thought that this is the place to rest at night. At night there was extreme darkness. He burned his shirt in the temple to remove this darkness. As a result of lighting Up Lord Shivalinga at night, he received the post of Treasurer of Gods, Kuber Dev, in the next life.
Yes, according to this legend, one should light the lamp in the Shiva temple during the night or evening and keep chanting the mantra "Om Namah Shivaay" while lighting the lamp. At the same time, you can also chant this mantra 108 times in the rosary of Rudraksha.
