UJJAIN - MAHAKALA JYOTIRLINGA

When they were passing through restless nights and graceless days, some among them suggested to approach a pious brahmin living in Avanti itself for help; for, he was noted for his spiritual life together with practicing yoga. A quite going man as he was, he neither craved for publicity, nor longed for worldly fame. He was a hermit, although living amidst mahanagara. Meeting him, they appraised him of the asura's wicked acts and the fact of premature deaths mounting higher day after day. Moved by the accounts, he decided to put his yoga Vidya to public benefit. Dispersing the people, he offered pujas in a pattern of his own to Lord Maheswar and prayed for His instant intervention. His yogic powers were of superior kind that Lord Maheswar coming out of a chasm of the earth near the yagna kund caught hold of the demon at once and destroyed him. The whole nagara breathed peace and then they solicited the Lord along with the brahmin to abide in the city for their regular worship, which was granted. And since then Maheswar in the role of destroyer under the new name of Mahakala is abiding in the form of Jyotirlinga, blessing the people and relieving them from all kinds of distresses.
