If resorted to, the consequence - reprehension or
annihilation is certain. More than humans, the celestials offer countless
examples of notoriety it caused and disasters it thrust upon them, when fallen
victims to it. Suffice it is, if one is singled out from the lives the Trimurthis to
exemplify its impact with an immobile monumental evidence found near
Tryambak - a township near Nasik in Maharashtra.
It testifies to the severity of its evil effect. It further publishes the
calamitous consequences of unbridled anger, if directed against anyone for that
matter, for any purpose, even. Here Lord Siva is abiding along with the Lord
Creator - for befriending himself to the abnoxious lair and Brahma for falling
victim to lie.
origin of the Tryambakeshwar temple, and emergence of the Barhmagiri hill in the
township of Tryambak near Nasik have a fantastic background and awe-some legend.
The temple enshrines one of the dwadasa jyotirlingas and has a long history of
its own. And it commands veneration by virtue of possessing several unique
features that have been drawing theists in large numbers since time immemorial.
It is here Sage Gautama was absolved of his sin by bathing in the Ganga, brought
to Brahmagiri by Siva; it is to this kshetra all the gods come once in every
twelve years; it is here Ganga turns its course due to placing a blade of
dharbha by Gautama and took the name of Gautami or Godavari; it is in the
vicinity of this thirtha kshetra there lies Panchavati, where Sri Rama lived
when in exile; it is here exist several ancient temples housing many gods.
