Story of Rameshwar Jyotirlinga

 There is a legend about Rameshwaram Jyotirlinga. That when Lord Shri Ram was going to Ayodhya after liberating Sita from Ravana's captivity, at that time he stopped and rested on the Gandhamdan mountain on the way. After resting, he came to know that the sin of destroying the sage Pulastya clan is here. To avoid this curse, they should worship Lord Shiva by establishing a Jyotirlinga at this place.   After knowing this, Lord Shri Ram requested Hanuman to go to Mount Kailash and bring Shivling. Hanuman went to Mount Kailash after receiving the orders of Lord Rama, but he could not see Lord Shiva there. On this he chanted Lord Shiva carefully. After which Lord Shiva was pleased and appeared to him. And fulfilled the purpose of Hanuman ji.   Here Hanuman ji was delayed due to penance and to please Lord Shiva. And on the other hand Lord Rama and Goddess Sita keep waiting for the auspicious time for the establishment of Shivling. Due to the fear of missing the auspicious

Ardhanarishvara Shiva

 At the beginning of the creation, when the mental creation created by Brahmaji could not get expansion, then Brahmaji felt very sad.  At the same time there was an Akashvani, Brahman!  Now create a magical creation.  Hearing the voice of Akash, Brahmaji decided to create the world of Maithuni, but by that time he could not succeed in his determination due to the absence of women.

  Then Brahmaji thought that without the grace of Lord Shiva, Maithuni creation could not take place.  So they started doing severe penance to please them.  For a long time, Brahmaji kept meditating on Maheshwar Shiva with love in his heart.  Pleased with his intense penance, Lord Uma-Maheshwar appeared to him in the form of Ardhanarishvara.

  Maheshwar Shiva said- Son Brahma, I am extremely pleased with the hard penance you have done for the growth of the people.  I will definitely fulfill your wish.  Saying this, Shiva separated Uma Devi from half of his body.  Brahma said. - So far I have failed in creating a proper world.  I now want to expand the world by creating people through the union of men and women.  Parameshwari Shiva manifested a power similar to herself from the middle of her eyebrows.  For the creation of the universe, that power of Shiva became the daughter of Daksha as per the prayer of Brahmaji.

  In this way Goddess Shiva entered the body of Mahadev ji by obliging Brahma ji and giving her unparalleled power, this is the secret of Ardhanarishvara Shiva and from this only the creation of the universe was managed, whose regulator is Shivshakti.
