physical terms lingam denotes an erect penis. Shiva lingam is the most worshipped
entity in Hinduism religion. We find Shiva temples having a Shiva lingam installed
in them at every nook and corner of India nay world. Why? Shiva...
a part of Hindu trinity represents the most powerful attribute of God Almighty
(amongst all three entities). The first being Brahma... the creator! The second
being Vishnu the maintainer (preserver) and the last being Mahesh (Shiva)... the
is the entity of Shiva considered most powerful? Simply, he who finally makes
the system go round is Shiva. Brahma creates and Vishnu maintains the creation
but unless and until Shiva destroys one who is born... every entity would grow
limitless. Based upon
theory of Karma... when the time comes... it is Shiva who snuffs out life! For
maintaining a balance in the system so that there can be a new beginning... a
new start! Unless the decaying body withers and dies... a new life can never germinate.
maintain balance in whole cosmos is responsibility of Shiva. And why is so much
significance attached to shiva lingam that people worship it? The
reasons are absolutely clear... everyone fears untimely death! To ward the evil
effects of death people worship Shiva Lingam with total submission. It is faith
in the power of Shiva that people pay their obeisance to the shiva lingam.
Shiva Lingam also denotes the power of Lingam. It is symbolic of the creative
power of cosmos. It is Lingam that creates life on Mother Earth as God meant it
to be. Properly harnessed...
this power can be transmuted into pure creative energy. It is this power when
subdued wisely... leads to Awakening of the Kundalini in human beings and man
in particular. The awakening of Kundalini never occurs otherwise!
It is awakening of the Kundalini that finally results in one becoming enlightened...
reaching the stage of Mahavira,
Gautama Buddha, Jesus
Christ or Prophet
Mohammed! It is the power of lingam and lingam alone that leads one
towards unbridled power in the spiritual domain. All
the saints and Rishis' of the yester era who reached the stage of enlightenment
initially controlled and redirected this power of lingam. In the spiritual domain
unless one controls and transmutes this power of lingam nothing worthwhile is
for this reason so much importance has been attached to lingam and Shiva being
the highest entity amongst all gods in Hinduism... masses go to Shiva temples
and offer their prayers.
On this note it is specifically mentioned that ladies very punctually offer their
prayers in Shiva temples. Why? The prime reason... they ask for the blessings
of Shiva for getting a good partner in life... an ideal husband! No wonder many
wishes get fulfilled. In
the spiritual world... most offerings are symbolic in nature. One needs to dive
deep into the ocean of spiritual wisdom... if we are to gather the pearls!
must never be offered as a ritual. We must first understand the significance of
prayers being offered... it is only then our prayers get accepted. Mere chanting
of prayers lead to a dead-end. It is a worth less journey that leads nowhere.
Remember, it is the power of lingam that made Bill Clinton (a powerful president
of USA) fall from grace. Had he transmuted the creative powers to more appropriate
channels... Bill Clinton may have been the President of the United States for
a third term. One of
the mighty Rishi of the yester era Sage Vishwamitra fell from grace on seeing
the sight of a beautiful lady taking bath in a forlorn jungle. He could not contain
himself and lost precious years of his tapasya... the austerities practiced! He
conducted all over from the beginning... a waste of precious time in the journey
does not forgive... there is no backtracking in the domain of Shiva. If we indulge...
we shall repent in the end. John F. Kennedy let loose his sensual side... he paid
dearly by loosing his life (His association with marilyn monroe was not liked
by many). In the spiritual
domain... the power of lingam is the foremost! Those who transmute this creative
energy to more useful uses are the ones who become the guiding pillars of the
society. May God bless all those who do not suppress this power of lingam physically
but transmute it to more creative uses!
