Jyotirlinga appears automatically while Shivling created by humans

DEC 23 (WTN) - You must have heard about Jyotirlinga and Shivling. But do you know the difference between Jyothirlinga and Shivling? If you do not know, then we describe you. What is the difference between these two?

According to a story of Shiva Purana, once the creator of the universe Lord Brahma and nurturer Vishnu, got involved in a dispute that who is the best between them. This dispute went on growing. When there was no solution to this dispute, then Shiva appeared in the form of a ‘Great Light Column’ to remove the 'delusion' of being best between Brahma and Vishnu.

Both Brahma and Vishnu were surprised by seeing the huge ‘Jyothi’ (light) pillar. Both could not find the glory of this light pillar. It is called 'Shiv Jyotirlinga' or 'Jyotirlinga' in Hindu religious beliefs. Ling (gender) means ‘symbol’, that is, being appeared in the Jyoti (light) of Shiva and to create the creation of the universe.

As Shiva appeared in the form of Jyoti column Therefore, Jyotirlinga always appears automatically. While Shivaling can be both self-reliant and established and by humans. In Hindu scriptures, 12 Jyotirlingas of Shiva are mentioned. That is, all of these Shiv Jyotirlingas are self-destined. Wherever these Shiva Jyotirlingas are established, the grand Shiva temples are still there. All these 12 Jyotirlingas are described in Shiv Purana's 'Rudra Sanhita'.

The 12 Jyotirlingas of Shiva are in this way. Somnath, Mallikarjuna, Mahakaleshwar, Omkareshwar, Kedarnath, Bhimashankar, Kashi Vishwanath, Trimbakeshwar, Vaidyanath, Nageshwar Mahadev, Rameswaram and Ghrishneshwar. These 12 Jyotirlingas represent 12 zodiac signs. Astrology recognizes that according to the zodiac sign, one must visit, anointing and worshiping to fulfill all the proper desires.
