Thus Jyotirlinga means the physical form of Lord Shiva which is represented by light. Lord Shiva appeared as a beam of light which has no beginning and no end. These Jyotirlingas are not man-made but are self-manifested forms of Lord Shiva. It is said that Shiva himself resides in these Jyotirlingas in a subtle form.
