1.BHASMA Aarti ~is a mandatory ritual offered to Lord MAHAKALESHWAR, #Ujjain daily at 4 AM. Among 12 jyothirlingas, this is only jyothirlinga where bhasma aarti is performed @LostTemple7
2.‘Bhasma’ and ‘Aarti’ are two words in Hindi which mean ash and offering of light in the form of wicks or camphor as part of the rituals to the God respectively. The Jyothirlinga in this temple is the only one in the entire world that faces the South. @Itishree001
3.Long ago, the Bhasma was brought from the ashes of Aghoras or Yogis and were offered to the God. The hot Bhasm was smeared along the Jyothirlinga. Now, the Bhasma, usually referred to as Vibhoothi, is obtained by burning the cow dung in a sacred fire.

2.Hanuman is portrayed as the son of Vayu, the wind God. This explains his speed of movement, his power to become as small or large as he likes, and his incredible strength. But there are many other yogic secrets hidden behind his symbolism.
🌸Hanuman Ji and cosmic energy!!
