UJJAIN - MAHAKALA JYOTIRLINGA

This kind of offering of the same item for the second time is honoured and accepted. ' No where such practice is observed in India; for, once if anything is offered to God, it is final and only the giver, receives it back as mahaprasad, and so deemed unfit for further offering to any god. Lesser in rank even is not Mahakala combining karuna and samhara in Himself, the most strangest among the strangest. Some refer the bilva leaves after duly washing them again. Sivapurana deals this topic at length and justifies it with proof. The visitors usually taking bath on the Ratnaghat of the river Sipra flowing nearby, worship the Lord with great devotional fervor accompanied by `Harahara Mahadev' slogans which reverberating the entire region rend the skies to reaching the Kailas to awaken Him, as it were, to grant them boons.

Now comes Omkareswar lying very near to this but on the bank of Narmada enshrining the Omkareswar Jyotir Linga, that emancipated illustrious personages.
