Shiva Linga represents the Hindu deity, Lord Shiva. The lingam is always represented with the yoni that stands for Mata Shakti. Shiva Linga symbolizes the unified power of male (lingam) and female (yoni) that originates all the lives. If you want to find the meaning of Shiva Linga that is located in the temples, then the best place to find the answer would be the temple itself.
The Secrets that you must know…
Temple is the body, and the life within is the Shiva. If you see the architecture of Hindu temples, then you will understand how well it relates to the human body. “Dwajastamba” represents the sex organ in males, and “balipeeta” represents the female sex organ. When it comes to the Shiva Linga, it is placed in the “garbagudi” of the temple that signifies the head.
The pineal gland, which is located in the midline of the brain, is known as the master gland. It is responsible for producing all the chemicals in our bodies. The pineal gland runs the whole body as Shiva runs the Bramhanda.
The pineal gland looks like the Shiva Linga and produces serotonin, melatonin, DMT5, which can be compared to the Somras, Amruth, etc. If you think carefully, then you will understand that Shiva Lingas were only found in the dark sanctum of the temples. Meanwhile, medical science says that our pineal gland is only functional in the darkness.
The Thapobangi of Shiva
It is an indicator that during meditation, the production of chemicals gets increased that opens the Chakshu (third eye). The origin of the lingam has also been explained in the LingaPurana that tells the stories of supreme nature.
When it comes to the ShaivaSiddhanta, Shiva Linga is defined as the substrate that a worshipper installed who used to worship a ten-armed and five-faced Shiva. This form of Lord Shiva is known as Sadasiva. Archaeologists have also found 1008 Lingas carved on the bank of Tungabhadra in Hampi, India.
The ancient lingam in Gudimallam (a village in Andhra Pradesh) is a phallic object which was designed in the shape of Shiva in front of a lingam. Ramakrishna used to practice “Jivantalinga puja” that stands for worshipping a living lingam.
However, the follower of Ramakrishna, Swami Vivekananda, had argued about the origin of Shiva Linga. A German orientalist found the source of ShalagramaShila, and later Vivekananda had also described the origin of ShalagramaShila as an imaginary invention.
According to the Hindu Puranas, once Brahma and Vishnu were fighting with each other to prove themselves more powerful than the other one. Shiva came in between to clear things and created a flaming lingam between Vishnu and Brahma; after that, Shiva challenged both the gods to find the beginning and the end of the lingam.
Lord Vishnu took a Varaha and went to the downwards to find the beginning of the lingam. On the other hand, lord Brahma took a swan and went to the upwards to find the end. After searching a lot, both of them returned without getting any result, but Brahma said that he saw the top of the lingam, which was a false statement.
Then Shiva came out from the middle part of the pillar and revealed the false statement in front of Vishnu. Since then, both of them accepted the ascendancy of Shiva.
