अवधूतेश्वर

अवधूतेश्वर n.  शंकर का एक अवतार । एक बार, शंकर के दर्शन के लिये इन्द्र तथा बृहस्पति कैलाश पर्वत पर जा रहे थे । उनकी परीक्षा लेने के लिये, शंकर मार्ग में दिगंबर एवं भयंकर रुप लेकर बैठा था । बार बार बता कर भी, न तो वह मार्ग छोडता था, न ही कुछ बोलता था । अन्त में इन्द्र ने वज्र बाहर निकाला । उस वज्र का स्तम्भन शंकर ने किया, तथा उसके तृतीय नेत्र से क्रोधाग्नि निकाला । बृहस्पति की प्रार्थना से, वह अग्नि अत्न में लवणोदधि में डाला गया । उससे जालंधर उपन्न हुआ । उसका वध शंकर ने किया [शिव. शत.३०]

AVADHŪTEŚVARA   An incarnation of Śiva. Once Indra and Bṛhaspati went to Kailāsa to do homage to Śiva who clad in air only hindered their way. Indra requested that person to get out of the way. He requested repeatedly several times but in vain. Indra who got angry took his weapon of Vajra. But Śiva froze it. Moreover fire emanated from his eye on the forehead. At the request of Bṛhaspati Śiva turned the fire from his eye towards Lavaṇa Samudra (the sea of Salt). Jalandhara who was killed by Śiva had his origin in this fire. [Śiva Purāṇa].
