Chapter 226 - Greatness of Megheśvara (Megha-īśvara)

Īśvara said:

1-3. There is a shrine destructive of all sins well-known as Megheśvara. It is situated to the east of that (the shrine Anarakeśvara) and to the south-west of Pāpamocana.

When there is the danger from draught, Śānti rites should be performed there through Brāhmaṇas. The ground to the west should be aḍored after drenching it with water.

There is no fear from drought at the place where the Liṅga installed by the clouds is worshipped everyday.
