Dhareshwar Shiva – About Dhareshwar Shivling

Dhareshwar Shiva is a manifestation of Shiva mentioned in the Kashi Khand of Skanda Purana. Dhareshwar Shivling is worshipped in Varanasi and in western parts of India especially in Pune and near Gokarna in Karnataka.  
Dhareshwar is also one of the pancha kshetras or five holy places viz., Gokarna, Murdeshwar, Dhareshwar, Gunavante and Sejjeshwar.
The popular belief is that worshipping Dhareshwar Shiva will help in attaining moksha.
As Dhareshwar, Shiva is the one who supports the universe and the five elements.
Another belief is that Shiva is Dhareshwar because he controls the flow of GangaRiver on Earth. Earth was not capable of taking the flow of Ganga from heaven. To control the huge powerful flow of Ganga, Shiva took Her on His head.
When Shiva is Dhareshwar, Goddess Shakti appears as Dhareshwar Devi.

One who has realized the Self can never inflict pain on other – Nisargadatta Maharaj

When we concentrate our attention on the origin of thought, the thought process itself comes to an end; there is a hiatus, which is pleasant, and again the process starts.
Turning from the external world and enjoying the objectless bliss, the mind feels that the world of objects is not for it.
Prior to this experience the un-satiating sense enjoyments constantly challenged the mind to satisfy them, but from the inward turn onwards its interest in them begins to fade.
Once the internal bliss is enjoyed, the external happiness loses its charm.
One who has tasted the inward bliss is naturally loving and free from envy, contented and happy with others’ prosperity, friendly and innocent and free from deceit. He is full of the mystery and wonder of the bliss.

One who has realized the Self can never inflict pain on other. Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
