Last year I went to Triambakeshwara, one of the twelve Jyotirlingas in India, and needless to mention here that it was truly enlivening! It is said that” there is no sacred place like Triambakeshwara, no river like Godavari, and no mountain like Brahmagiri”. I have literally experienced the godliness in the holy shrine. The pious air and chanting of mantras had a strange demystifying calmness! A calmness that cleanses your soul, and purifies your heart with the reiteration of “Om Namah Shivay”…
The highlight of this Jyotirlinga, is its three faces embodying Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Rudra. The Lingas at Trimbakeshwara are covered by a jeweled crown which is placed over the Gold Mask of Tridev (Brahma Vishnu Mahesh). I was lucky to have been there in the auspicious month of “Savana” accompanying a vibrant and rare species of true “Yogis”. Now that the “Mahashivaratri” is here, I thought to pen down the embellishments of the “Sahastranama”
Shiv Linga at Triambakeshwara
The god of the yogis, the self-controlled and celibate destructor, the follower of Brahma the creator and Vishnu the preserver, there are many ways to describe the omnipresent and ubiquitous truth “Lord SHIVA”.
