Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)
Yajñeśvara (यज्ञेश्वर) is the name of a Liṅga (symbolical manifestation of Śiva) that is associated with the Yakṣa-tīrtha (a sacred bathing place). It represents the fifty-first of the sixty-four siddhaliṅgas mentioned in the Nepalese Tyasaphu (a folding book or leporello). At each of these spots Śiva is manifest as a Liṅga. Each of these liṅgas (eg., Yajña-īśvara) has its own specific name, mantra, set of rituals and observances, auspicious time etc.
The auspiscious time for bathing near the Yajñeśvara-liṅga at the Yakṣa-tīrtha is mentioned as “māgha-kṛṣṇa-caturdaśī” (latin: magha-krishna-caturdashi). This basically represents the recommended day for bathing there (snānadina).Source: Wisdom Library: Śaivism
