Ravana Lifting  Kailasa Page9

It is "one of the four oldest and most famous seats of the worship of Shiva" and is situated in the district which used to be called Lata. The words Lakulisha and Nakulisha are two vicarious forms of which the former is possibly the older one [reasons for considering Lakulisha as the older form are (1) that the change of La to na is more common than that of na to la; (2) Lakulisha can be easily explained as a compound of lakulinil lakulina and isho, i.e., the Lord wearing the staff (i.e. the khatvanga), though the latter one is that commonly used in Sanskrit literature].

The doctrines of the Nakulisha Pashupatas are explained at length in Sayana's Sarvadarshanasangraha (p. 108, Cowell & Gough), but nothing is known regarding their history. It is, therefore, very interesting to learn that in the 13th century A.D., Gujarat was considered to be the country where the seat arose and that Karshana-Karvan--claimed the honour of being the place where its founder was born and where his school was divided into four branches.
