Hello friends,

Today I will depict the story behind the mahabaleshwar jyotirlinga 

Ganesha and the Atmalinga


The asura king Ravana was an ardent devotee of Lord Siva. The God's attained immortality and invincibility by worshiping a divine linga  called "AtmaLinga". The Lanka king Ravana wanted to attain immortality as well. So he was bent upon obtaining the AtmaLinga.  Since the AtmaLinga belonged to Lord Shiva, Ravana worshiped Shiva with great deal of devotion. Pleased by his prayers, Lord Shiva appeared before him and asked him what he wanted ?

Ravana requests the AtmaLinga as his boon. Lord Shiva agreed to give him the boon with a condition that it should never be placed on the ground. If the AtmaLinga was ever placed on the ground, all the powers would return to Lord Shiva again. Having obtained his boon, Ravana started back on his journey to Lanka.  The Deva's on the other hand were worried that the Athma Linga would add to the might of Ravana & that he could never be destroyed if he succeeded in taking the Aathma Linga to Lanka.  They prayed to Lord Ganesha for help. Lord Ganesha came to their rescue and promised to help them.

Ganesha caused Ravana's stomach to be filled with water.  As Ravana was nearing a place called Gokarna, he felt tired and wanted to answer the nature's call but was worried because with the AtmaLinga in his hands. At this time, Lord Ganesh in the disguise of a Brahmin boy passed by. Seeing him, Ravana requested him to hold the AtmaLinga until he performed his rituals, and asked him not to place it on the ground.



Ganesha struck a deal with Ravana and declared that he could not wait for long & when he grew tired, he would call out Ravana's name thrice & if he did not come & take the Lingam, he would place it on the ground & go away. Ravana agreed. As soon as Ravana left Ganesha in no time called him thrice and has per the deal he had already placed the AtmaLinga on the ground.

Seeing the Linga on the ground an enraged Ravana started chasing the boy to hit him on his head. Lord Ganesha showed his true form. The Ganesha statue in the temple has a hollow on the head, where Ravana is supposed to have struck him Ravana, realizing that he had been tricked, got really angry and tried to uproot and destroy the but could not. 

 

In spite of using his twenty hands, he could not budge the Linga. Though the Linga could not be moved, the pressure from Ravana's hands had changed its shape like the ear of a cow & hence the place came to be called Kokarnam (Ko-cow, karnam-ear). The linga came to be called Mahabaleswara since it could not even be shifted by the mighty Ravana (maha-great, balam-power, Eswara-Lord Siva).  Then he decided to destroy the covering of the AtmaLinga, and threw the case covering it to a place called Sajjeshwara, 23 miles away. Then he threw the lid of the case to a placed called Guneshwara (now Gunavanthe) and Dhareshwara, 10-12 miles away. Finally, he threw the cloth covering the AtmaLinga to a placed called Mrideshwara in Kanduka-Giri (Kanduka Hill).
