In Hinduism, a linga is a votive object revered as a representation of creative force and the god Shiva. In Shaivite temples and private shrines all around India, the lingam may be seen.
The lingam is frequently in the middle of Shiva temples, surrounded by other God Murtis. The lingam is clearly aniconic in comparison to the latter. The bulk is smooth and cylindrical. It frequently sits in the middle of the yoni, a lipped, disk-shaped item that serves as the goddess Shakti’s symbol. Ancient Sanskrit literature, including the Mahabharata and the Puranas, describes stories that identify the lingam as Shiva’s phallus. Hindus who follow their religion view the lingam and yoni as a pair symbolizing the fusion of the masculine and female principles and the entirety of life.
The Shivling is venerated with offerings of milk, water, fresh flowers, young sprouts of grass, fruit, leaves, and sun-dried rice. Among the most famous lingams are those called svayambhuva (“self-originated”), which are cylindrical rocks found in caves or on the ground that are believed to have come into existence by themselves at the origin of time, nearly 70 are worshiped in various parts of India.
A universal icon in South India is the lingodbhavamurti, which shows Shiva emerging out of a fiery lingam. This is a description of a story in which the gods Vishnu and Brahma were once discussing their respective importance when Shiva arrived in the form of a blazing pillar to quell their pride. Brahma took the form of a swan and flew upward to see if he could find the top of the pillar, and Vishnu took the form of a boar and plunged below to find its source. Neither was successful, and both were compelled to recognize Shiva’s priority and superiority.
Three of Shiva’s perfections are represented by the Shivling. The Shivalingam’s upper oval portion symbolises Parashiva, while the pitha, or bottom oval portion, stands for Parashakti. Shiva is the ultimate reality, the eternal, formless, and spaceless, in Parashiva perfection. While Parashiva is formless, Shiva is all-encompassing, pure consciousness, force, and the primordial substance of everything that exists in Parashakti perfection. Shiva also possesses form.
