Origin Of The First And Eternal Jyotirlinga

As Lord Shiva is the eternal god, once Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu came to Shiva to establish their supremacy over each other as Brahma was the creator and Vishnu was the operator.

To end the debate and argument between Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu, Mahadev pierced the three worlds in the form of an endless pillar of light as Jyotirling. That’s how the first Jyotirlinga appeared. Its start and end was not known.

To put an end to the debate between Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu over supremacy, Lord Shiva sent Brahma upwards and Vishnu downwards and ordered them to find out the starting point and end point of that huge Jyotirlinga.

Lord Vishnu traveled down wards and lord Brahma upwards but both were not able to find out neither the beginning nor the end point of the Jyotirlinga. Lord Brahma lied to them that he had been able to discover the starting point and present the flower of Ketki as the witness and Lord Vishnu told the truth and accepted his defeat.  Lord Shiva appeared as the second pillar of light and cut down one of the four heads of Brahma and cursed him that he would not be worshiped anywhere in the world except one place in Pushkar, Rajasthan.

Shiva gave boon to Vishnu that he would be worshiped in the entire world in everything till eternity.

According to Shiv Mahapuran, Lord Shiva emerged  on the fourteenth night  of the Krishna Paksha Of Phalgun month in the form of an endless pillar of light that was pervading in the whole universe to establish himself in the form of Jyotirlinga (the formless regulator of the universe).  Hence, MahaShivratri is being celebrated on that day from there onwards. 

According to Hindu scriptures, there are total 64 Jyotirlingas and 12 of them are having special importance in Kalyuga, hence named as “ Dwadasha Jyotirlingas”. The Jyotirlinga shrines are thus places where Lord Shiva appeared pillar of light. Each of the twelve Jyotirlingas is considered a different manifestation of Lord Shiva.
