AURANGABAD - GHUSHMESWAR JYOTIRLINGA

Background

The Ghushmeswara Jyotirlinga is claimed to exist in two places -- one at Devagiri near the famous Ellora caves, and the other at Ellora Kailasa temple itself. Moreover, there are various versions of the name itslef, such as Kusumeswara Jyotirlinga, Grushmeswara Jyotirlinga and Grishneswara Jyotirlinga. Location may change, names may vary but the sports played and boons bestowed by that Omni benevolent Siva are as immutable as the Pranava itself. Legends having woven with the humanist view of lifting the dukhartis, many places claim the honour of Lord's appearance for deliverance and emancipation. The only thing to be looked for is, whether it is a Swayambhu - self manifested linga or Sthapitha - installed by humans. Above all, whether the Sivalilas displayed are in concurrence with the accounts embodied in the Puranas are to be examined, lest concoction gets incorporated as some selfish men may start trading in spiritualism and amass wealth or fame. Even though the sthalapuranas are incompatible with the mythologies, we can enter straight away the shrines for offering prayers and getting His anugrah for carefree existence in this world. Isn't He permeating the whole Cosmos?
