Guruji, what is the significance of the twelve Jyotirlings of lord Shiva? Is it necessary to visit them?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

These pilgrimages are intended to bring people together, and unite the country from Kashmir to Rameshvaram, from Kaamaakhya to Somnath. Shiva does not reside only in temples. He dwells in our hearts. Wherever you are, call out to Him and He will appear.
