Dwadasa Jyotirlingas

These are photos of Dwadasa Jyotirlingas with their stotras in a Shivalayam in my home town kakinada. 2 hours back i went to a Lord Shiva temple in kakinada and taking these photographs at there. Now everywhere arrangements made for devotees because tomorrow i.e. on 27th February, 2014 is "Maha Shivaratri" festival. Here in this temple also arrangements are prepared for tomorrow's festival. I am taking these photos at there.

These Dwadasa Jyotirlingas photos and stotras are carved in stone by indicating number to each of those Jyotirlinga and stotra mentioned in telugu language.

I am taking these photos with my digital camera.

Below (this) is the complete stotra of Dwadasa Jyotirlingams. 

I am using this storam from the website of wikipedia.org  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jyotirlinga

Mahakaal in Ujjain, Omkareshwar in Amleshwar;

परल्यां वैद्यनाथं च डाकिन्यां भीमशङ्करम्।
Paralyāṃ Vaidyanāthaṃ ca Ḍākinyāṃ Bhīmaśaṅkaram
Vaidyanath in Paralya and Bhimashankaram in Dakniya;

सेतुबन्धे तु रामेशं नागेशं दारुकावने॥

Below (this) is the phalastuti (recital benefit) for reading this Dwadasa Jyotirlinga stotram.

एतानि ज्योतिर्लिङ्गानि सायं प्रातः पठेन्नरः।
etāni jyotirliṅgāni sāyaṃ prātaḥ paṭhennaraḥ
One who recites these Jyotirlingas every evening and morning

सप्तजन्मकृतं पापं स्मरणेन विनश्यति॥
saptajanmakṛtaṃ pāpaṃ smaraṇena vinaśyati
is relieved of all sins committed in past seven lives.

एतेशां दर्शनादेव पातकं नैव तिष्ठति।
eteśāṃ darśanādeva pātakaṃ naiva tiṣṭhati
One who visits these, gets all his wishes fulfilled.

कर्मक्षयो भवेत्तस्य यस्य तुष्टो महेश्वराः॥:
karmakṣayo bhavettasya yasya tuṣṭo maheśvarāḥ
and one's karma gets eliminated as Maheshwara gets satisfied to the worship.
