Worship of Srikalahasteeshwara in various yugas

(Ref: Srikalahasteeshwara Sthalapurana - 3)

Lord ShivaMeditation: I meditate on the Linga of Srikalahasteeshwara which was worshipped in the various yugas starting from Vayu in Maha Kailasha on the peak of Sivanandaikanilaya. I meditate on the Linga which shone like gold in Kritayuga, which shone like silver in Tretayuga, which was like steel in Dwaparayuga and which is like rock with the glow of camphor in Kaliyuga.
