SAHYADRI - BHIMSANKAR JYOTIRLINGA

Uniqueness

Contradictions or no contradictions; agreement reached or not; verdict passed gains credibility or not; posterity either accepts or does not; it is as true as history that Bhimasankar has been abiding at Bhimasankar for centuries, though Puranas are at variance with regard to its location and times.

Brushing aside the claims, like that the real Bhimasankar is enshrined is the Kamarupa country i.e. the present Assam, and not the one found at Bhuvanagiri village in the Poona district of Maharastra state; or it is in that Dakini country now in the Nainital district, but not this one in Maharastra, and leaving such arguments to ivory tower pundits, if we enter the hill temple at Bhimashankar, the All - compassionate Lord Siva gleams into our sight and fills our souls with anugraha infinite, making our countenances beam with joy inexplicable. The Mulavirat of the temple, situated atop the Sahyadri hill temple is one of the Dwadasa Jyotirlingas and has a glittering past and ineffable glory. This archamurthi has had a splendid past and is conceived of taking rest after Tripurantaka samhara, on granting the request of His staying here to the gods, who congregated to pour out their ecstatic joy over the death of that lokakantaka and to express their gratitude.
