Today is Maha Shivaratri. Darshan has special significance in all the 12 Jyotirlingas across the country. However, due to Corona, there are many restrictions in the temples. Dainik Bhaskar has brought for you videos of Mahashivratri Puja-Aarti of the country’s 2 major Jyotirlinga Somnath (Saurashtra, Gujarat) and Mahakaleshwar (Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh). You can take advantage of today’s philosophy of both Jyotirlingas, sitting at home.
Only 25 thousand devotees will be able to see in Mahakaleshwar
Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga is located in Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh. This is the only Dakshinmukhi Jyotirlinga. It is the only temple where Mahakaleshwar is consumed in the morning in the Brahma Muhurta aarti, it is called Bhasmarti. People from all over the world especially come to see this aarti.
This time due to Corona, many changes have been made in the philosophy of Mahakaleshwar. The pilgrims coming here will have to walk for at least one and a half km. Darshan can take more than one and a half hours. The administration hopes that at least 25 thousand devotees will visit Mahakal on the day of Mahashivaratri.
Every year around 2 lakh people come here to visit on Mahashivaratri. At the time of darshan, devotees will have to comply with the fixed rules of masks, social distancing, sanitation under the Corona Guideline.
Somnath will also have online registration and darshan with Corona Guideline
Somnath ranks first among the 12 Jyotirligas. All the Jyotirlingas are told in Shiva Mahapuran. It is believed in connection with this Jyotirlinga that it was founded by Chandradeva. One of the names of Chandra is Mon. For this reason, it is known as Somnath Jyotirlinga. Chandradev was liberated from the curse of Daksha Prajapati by worshiping this Shivling.
Due to the corona epidemic, devotees have to register online for darshan. Only after this, devotees will be able to enter the temple for darshan. Also, devotees will also have to take care of masks, social distancing and sanitization.
