Temples - Katas and the Paskar (Ajmer) are the eyes of Shiva

This year Mahashivratri to be celebrated in Pak's Katasraj Temples too


Lahore, Jan 11 (ANI): Perhaps for the first time in last few centuries, the Mahashivratri festival would be celebrated at the Katasraj Temples in Pakistan's Punjab province

Located on a hill six km from Choa Saidan Shah in Chakwal, the Katasraj Temples have historic and religious value for Hindus.

The temples have also been mentioned in Mahabharata - one of the three major Sanskrit Hindu epics. According to Hindu beliefs, both Katas and the Paskar (Ajmer) are the eyes of Shiva. It was here only that Alberuni attempted to measure the circumference of the Earth, studied Sanskrit and wrote his renowned famous book "Kitabul Hind". To this day, Hindu pilgrims regularly visit the site for worship. (ANI)

Welcome to the spirituality blog






This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
