The Jyotirlingas are ancient shrines of immense importance and significance where Lord Shiva is worshipped as a Lingam or fiery column of light. Jyotirlingas have tremendous power because they were consecrated and made in a certain way. There are only twelve Jyotirlingas in the world which are considered the most auspicious & holy. They are located at certain geographically and astronomically significant points. These points are subject to certain forces in the existence. These temples were consecrated according to the science of energizing forms. This is the science of using life energies to enhance human life in a phenomenal way.
Jyotirlingas are very powerful tools if one knows how to make use of them. If you know how, you can completely reorganize the constitution of your system in the presence of a linga like that; you can rewire your system completely. For every kind of linga that was created, there was a specific sadhana attached to it. The sadhana aspect is all gone nowadays. The temples have become like a monument for someone who died long ago.
