DWARAKA - NAGESWARA JYOTIRLINGA

Background

In the aeons gone by, in the primeval forest of Daruka near Dwaraka in Sourastra, an integral part of present Gujarat state, there lived two celebrated Siva devotees of rare type. - They belonged two opposite races -one was manava and the other danava and they were called Supriya and Daruka. Due to taking birth in rakshasa race, and perhaps by breeding, the latter was cruel, wicked and inhuman to the point of taking blood of manavas for nothing, a glaring example of racial aversion; but he was a Siva bhakta of supreme type. So far Supriya is considered, he was a Vaisya by caste--merchant carrying on business on a big scale, using ships for export and import of merchandise. Although trade does not admit fair play - i.e. lying is as regular as breathing, and honesty is a commodity deemed a rarity; he was a Siva bhakta of superior breed. He prized devotion above wealth and clung to the lotus feet of the Lord SIVA at all times.
