First let's separate the name into smaller parts Go + Rakshya = Gorakshya The meaning of Go are Cow, Earth (or universe) or the Indriya (Through which person interacts with the outer world also moha or attachment). The meaning of Rakshya is to protect.
The combined meaning becomes as such -
" The one who protects us from the un-escapable net of moha by protecting the indriyas. When all the individual are protected from misutilizing their bodies, which develops the mind so much that we become able to know all the things in the universe, then the universe is protected as a whole "
The 'Gorakshtilla' takes its name and fame from renowned, ascetic 'Gorakshnath', who was an eminent profounder saint of 'Nath Sampradaya'. A famous shrine 'Gorakshtilla' was built in his honour on the same spot where he practised austerities. Although there are no historical records to prove the time period when Gorakhnath ji practised his austerities at gorakshtilla but according to Mahnat Shri Rupnath ji and local historians, Guru Gorakhnath ji along with his 1400 disciples lived at gorakshtilla for many years and practised austerities and yoga. Today's Gorakshtilla, centered at hanuman district in Rajasthan (also eponymous from the saint), is a religious institution that runs many temples within their premises. The temple at Gorakshtilla is said to contain the samadhi shrine (tomb) and gaddi (prayer seat) of Gorakshanath. These temples constitute the centre of most of the Hindu religious activity in this region.Thousands of devotees throng these temples on the occasion of Makar Sankranti, Guru Purnima. Many VIPs and prominent people of stat also visits one of these temples during this festival. Gorakshtilla has a significant following in Rajasthan and the Haryana, and also among wider circles across the Nath groups. The monastic order, according to the principles of the saint Gorakhnath, does not follow caste conventions as in other Hindu religious groups. Thus, non-Brahmins may serve as priests. The present Mahant or chief priest is Mahant Shri Rupnath Ji who established himself as hero of Hindu renaissance. It is widely believed that those who chant ShriGorakhnath Chalisa 12 times they are blessed with a miracle jyoti.
