13th Jyotirlinga in Mauritius

The temple in itself is a Shiva temple. Apparently this is the 13th Jyotirlinga in the world. There are 13 Jyotirlingas in the world. 11.5 in India, 0.5 in Nepal and 1 in Mauritius. Details of the 12 Jyotirlingas can be found here. (Kedarnath [tail] and Pashupathinath [head] in Nepal are considered as one Jyotirlinga. Hence the decimals!)

Apparently, here in Mauritius Jyotirlinga temple, during the 2004 Mahashivratri celebrations, a lady saw the 3 eyes of Shiva on the idol which has been photographed. Also, the white milk that was poured on the Shiva idol turned into blue. This too has been photographed.

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!
