DWARAKA - NAGESWARA JYOTIRLINGA

It happened -- once, when he was sailing to far-off countries, his ship was caught in a terrific gale and brought to a port less shore near Darukavan, where Daruka with his wife Daruki were regaling in asurakrityas -- teasing, torturing their born enemies -- manavas for sadistic pleasure. When he was brought to his court for punishment, he learnt that Supriya was a great Sivabhakta. So he requested him, surprisingly to teach him the mystery of Sivapanchakshari and the procedure of doing Sivapuja. Presuming that Daruka would abuse the Sivamahima, if gained by learning it from him, he refused to reveal the secret. In consequence, he was imprisoned and crushed to the last drop by atrocious punishments. Ironically, the candle of his Sivabhakti burnt more effulgent than before, as he was engrossed in meditating on Siva, his Ishta Devata throughout the ordeals. Satisfied with this unique steadfastness and -unbounded devotion, Lord Siva, the Omnicompassionate appeared and killed the demon on the spot.
