All of you will be aware that the month of Sawan is considered to be the holy month which is currently in progress. In this case, the Deva Mahadev is considered unborn and is said to be eternal. It is said that if the legend of Shiva and his glory are not glorified for a month, there is no value to life. On the other hand, Mahadev Shiv Shankar himself has appeared and is worshipped in the form of Lingam. At the same time, Lord Shivalinga sits at 12 places and you may know that in Sawan, the 12 Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva are worshipped in full swing. Today we're going to tell you about 2 of them, Jyotirlinga, and the story about them.
*Somnath Jyotirlinga- The first Jyotirlinga is among the 12 Shivlings. This temple is located in Saurashtra in the state of Gujarat. To avoid the curse of the Dakshaprajapati, Somdev (Chandradev) worshipped Lord Shiva. He was pleased and redressed the curse of Som (Chandra). Lord Shiva, who was the one who removed the sufferings of Som, was founded here by Somdev himself! That is why the name of this pilgrimage was "Somnath". The temple has been destroyed 17 times due to foreign invasions. And every time it continues to deteriorate and become.
* Mallikarjuna: Jyotirlinga is located on the banks of the River Krishna in Andhra Pradesh on the mount Srisailam. The importance of this temple is similar to that of Mount Kailash of Lord Shiva. It is said that Once Karthik became angry with his father, Lord Shiva, and moved to a solitary settlement on the Srisailam mountain in the south direction, but his parents' service and devotion did not give up Kartik and he started worshipping him by making Shivling. Lord Shiva is sitting there with mother Parvati! Shiva (Arjuna) and Parvati (Mallika) were enthroned together and hence the Jyotirlinga was named Mallikarjun. Religious scriptures explain their religious and mythological significance. It is only by observing this Jyotirlinga that one gets rid of all sins.
