Describing how Bhagavan Sri Rama had installed Rameshwaram Linga, Sutaji said:
‘After killing Ravana, Sri Rama enthroned Vibhishana as the king of Lanka.’
‘While returning to Ayodhya he made a brief stop at Gandhamadana mountain.’
‘Since the thought of having killed a brahmin (Ravana) kept on tormenting him, he decided to atone for his sins. So, he installed the idol of Rameshwaram Linga at RameshwaraM setu.’
‘Rameshwaram Linga is so sacrosanct that all the holy places, sages and ancestors are believed to exist within the temple premise of Maheshwara Linga.’
‘Being installed by Bhagavan Sri Rama himself, this particular Linga has special significance attached to it.’
‘One who goes on a pilgrimage to this holy place, is certain to attain salvation even if he were a ‘Mlechha’ (born in a family who eat cow’s meat and one who doesn’t follow Dharma at all).
PS: We should always remember that, Bhagavan Sri Rama is svayam Bhagavan / Ishvara / Parameshvara / Parabrahma.
He is called as “aatma kaama”, that is, he doesn’t need anybody to fulfill his desires and he doesn’t need to make others happy.
In fact all others starting from Sri Mahalakshmi Devi, Sri Brahma Deva, Sri Rudra Deva etc etc etc all are followers of Bhagavan Sri Rama / Sri Krishna.
Whatever Sri Hari has instructed, all such instructions has to be obeyed by all.
Also we should note that, Bhagavan Sri Rama, he only shows the way for the common person to follow, that means he shows us the path if one does one or more sins, that person has to do so and so Karmas to get rid of those sins.
Bhagavan Sri Rama / Sri Krishna doesn’t need to pray anybody and he never follows anyone, as he is svayam Bhagavan.
