Mallikarjuna Jyotirlinga:


Shiva Meditation:

- I meditate on the Mallikarjuna Jyotirlinga in Krauncha mountain where Lord Shiva and Devi Parvati appeared together to meet their son Kumara.

- I meditate on the holy place of Mallikarjuna Jyotirlinga where Shiva and Parvati abided in the form of Jyoti.

- I meditate on the holy place of Mallikarjuna Jyotirlinga where Shiva and Parvati visit to see their son, Shiva during Amavasya and Parvati during Poornima.


(Shiva Purana - Koti Rudra Samhita 15)


Mallikarjuna Jyotirlinga:


Shiva Mallikarjuna Jyotirlinga Events:

Shiva Purana (Koti Rudra Samhita 15): Kumara leaves Kailasha after the challenge with Ganesha: When Kumara (Kartikeya) reached Kailasha after going around the entire earth, Devarshi Narada arrived there and told Kumara about the marriage of Ganesha and other events. Narada also indicated that Kumara was deliberately sent to take a round around the earth. Hearing this, Kumara saluted his parents and left towards Krauncha mountain inspite of his parents trying to prevent him.

Shiva sends devas, rishis and ganas to bring back Kumara: Getting separated from Kumara, his mother Girija became very sorrowful. Shiva tried to console her but Parvati did not listen. Then Shiva sent the gods, sages and ganas to bring back Kumara. But Kumara out of arrogance did not listen to them.

Shiva and Parvati themselves go to Krauncha mountain to see Kumara: Then Shiva and Parvati both felt sorrowful. They went to the place where Kumara was abiding. Kumara knowing about the arrival of his parents, left Krauncha mountain and moved to a place three yojanas away.

Shiva and Parvati abides in the Krauncha mountain in the form of Jyoti: After the departure of Kumara from the Krauncha mountain, both Shiva and Parvati abided there in the form of Jyoti. Out of their love for their son, Shiva and Parvati used to go to see their son, Shiva during Amavasya and Parvati during Poornima. From that day, Mallikarjuna Jyotirlinga became famous in the three worlds. Whoever sees this Jyotirlinga becomes free from sins and all his desires are fulfilled. He does not have to take birth again from the womb. He becomes prosperous in this world with foodgrains and riches.
