AURANGABAD - GHUSHMESWAR JYOTIRLINGA

Just at that happy union of mother and son to the wonderment of all, there appeared Lord Siva with smiling face and moving Abhayahastham. And, related the whole story of the crooked envy of the first wife and disappeared saying that the place where the Sivalingas were immersed every day would turn into a temple of great significance, and He would abide in it in His Jyotirlingaswarupa. The devout prayers would bear fruits beyond expectation, and He would bless one and all. The temple was named after Kusuma, the Kshetra Kusumeswaram.

This reputed Saiva Kshetra enshrining that sacred Jyotirlinga is near Aurangabad and it was renovated by Rani Ahalyabai recently. Here the Sivaaradhana is being conducted since that auspicious moment in the dim past according to Saivagamas. The other claims for the places of Jyotirlinga ,too have their own legends, but this one is approved by scholars as that Jyotirlinga Kshetra where this pious episode took place.

Lord Bhimashankar abiding in Sahyadri hills awaits our visit next, where . the formidable demon Tripura was laid low by the Lord with the assistance of Mother Parvathi accompanied by Sakini and Danimi, the chiefs of the Bhutaganas.
