Mahakaleshwar Jyotirling ~ Ujjain

Devotional Service is just like a seed sown in the heart of a living entity and if he goes on hearing & chanting, that seed fructifies, just as the seed of a tree fructifies with regular watering. Thus the spirtitual plant of devotional Service grows gradually.

Baidyanath Jyotirlinga and Deoghar

The ninth incarnation of Shiva was as Baidyanath at Deoghar in Bihar. This Jyotirlinga was established by
the demon King Ravana. A devotee who worships this Jyotirlinga gets all of his wishes fulfilled. Because
of this, it ia also known as Kamanalinga. Devotees carry the holy water of the Ganges from Sultanganj and
for the idol of Baidyanath in the months of Shravana and Bhadrapaksha according to the Hindu calendar.
Once, Ravana did a tremendous penance to please lord Shiva and to get a boon from him. Even after his
severe penance when lord Shiva did still not appear, he started offering his heads one by one to lord Shiva.
This way he already severed his nine heads and offered them to Shiva. When he was about to severe his
last remaining head, just the lord Shiva appeared before him. He blessed Ravana with unparalleled power
and strength. Lord Shiva also made him a ten headed demon once again.

But Ravana was not satisfied. He requested lord Shiva to come along with him to Lanka. Lord Shiva gave
Ravana s Shivalinga and warned him against keeping it on the earth, as then no power on the earth could
lift that Shivalinga from there.

Baidyanath Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga Ravana proceeded with the Shivalinga. On the way he felt the urge to urinate. Ravana gave that Shivalinga
to a cowherd boy(originally lord vishnu) and went to urinate. The cowherd boy held the Shivalinga for sometime. He felt that the
Shivalinga was becoming heavier and heavier. He could not bear the weight of the Shivalinga for too long.
He kept it on the ground. When Ravana returned he became very sad after seeing the Shivalinga on the
ground. He knew that, now it was impossible to lift it from that place. Ravana established the Shivalinga
there, which became famous as ‘Baidyanath jyotirlinga’.

TRISHUL

Photo: TRISHUL

Trishul has great significance in Hindu Religion , it is in the hands of almost all the deities but it but  the significance  is even more when it is held by Lord Shiva or Goddess . now why Trishul has been given so much of significance in our culture does have a very deep meaning which is  beyond the apparent . let us try to understand …

Trishul is polyvalent and rich in nature  .  polyvalent== Having the property of counteracting several related poisons or giving  immunity against  many different strains of a microorganism . but  in our case it has the capacity to remove our  many different negative qualities which inhibit  us to be one with the almighty  so helps to makes us rich at spiritual level .

The three prongs of Trishul represents — trinity –brahma , Vishnu , Mahesh ; sarasvati , lakshami and kaali  ; 3—modes of nature –creation, maintenance and destruction  ;  the 3 –kaala—past, present and future  ;  the 3– Gunas – sat , raj , tam . 3– lokas—swarg , bhu and patal ; 3– powers—will , action and wisdom ; 3—types of miseries –physical , menatal and spiritual .

Lord Shiva’s Trishul is supposed to destroy —-the physical world—attachment to gross the illusionary  world which seems so real ; the world of the mind—the ahamkaar or ego which is a barrier between Me  and HIM -–thus transforms  to be in the third world that is the world of spirituality –thus leads to oneness Shiva into a single non-dual plane of existence, that is bliss alone.

the trishula  in human body  represents three  energy channels —ida, pingala and shushmana meet at the brow. Shushmana, the central one, continues upward to the 7th chakra, or energy center, while the other two end at the brow, there the 6th chakra is located. The trisula’s central point represents Shushmana, and that is why it is longer than the other two, representing ida and pingala.

I desired to see again that transcendental form of the Lord, but despite my attempts to concentrate upon the heart with eagerness to view the form again, I could not see Him any more, and thus dissatisfied, I was very much aggrieved.
