This Shivalingam is carved with four faces facing the cardinal directions. In Sanskrit such Lingas are known as Pancha-Mukha-Lingam, or the five-faced Linga. In representations in art, the fifth face signifies the ultimate formless abstract principle. It is therefore not explicitly delineated but implied in the dome of the composition as here.

The spatial significance gives this image a cosmic symbolism, with the five faces representing the following forms of Shiva, one for each direction:

1). East: Tatpurusha

2). West: Sadyojata

3). North: Vamadeva

4). South: Aghora

5). Top: Ishana


Delivered by to all international destinations within 3 to 5 days, fully insured.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
