Agreeing with the claim that Ghushmeswara or Kusmeswaralinga is one of the Jyotirlingas and installed in the Devagiri temple, let us glean a few facts of its origin and the sports Siva played here. Puranas recount that once a devout brahmin lived here. He lived with a difference i.e. he dedicated his whole life to Lord Siva. His integrity and religiocity were the models to the people in that region, and so they held him in high esteem. He was a married man, blessed with a wife, noted for her self-will and strong emotions; yet she did her grihakrityas to the family members and pleased her husband in cooperating with his daily pujas etc. Unluckily she did not beget children -- not even one to see the family tree grow and bear fruit. Her bareness would make the family line come to an abrupt end. Being an orthodox brahmin, and prevailed upon by elders and well-wishers, he married a second time, only for santanaprapti, particularly a son, who releases him form the aputra naraka -- sin of sonlessness.
