Isvara said:

Since the Lingam emblem rose high resembling a mountain of fire, this shall be famous as Ruddy (Aruna) mountain.

Many holy centres will spring up here. A residence or death in this holy place ensures liberation.

The celebration of chariot festivals, the congregation of devotees, the presentation of ordinary as well as sacrificial gifts and offerings of prayers at this place shall be a millionfold efficacious.

Hence this sector shall be greater than all other sectors, very auspicious, full of all sorts of welfare and according salvation to everyone.

Worshipping me in my supreme Lingam form at this place and performing the other sacred rites shall accord salvation.

[Sivapurana: Vidyesvarasamhita]
