Shiva-lingam, A Picture Of Shiva-Parvati's Oneness

The lingam (the Sanskrit word for 'symbol') is the most definitive image of the Lord Shiva. Its worship traces its roots to a prehistoric community that discovered these phallic-shaped stones, called Svayambhu lingas, occurring naturally in the Narmada. The lingam may be set upright on a brass or stone pedestal, and worshipped as Shiva Himself. It is a sign of His transcendental self, His capacity for the creation of life. An aniconic image, it is an abstract expression of the dharmic reverence for life and how it comes about. Shaivites perceive it as a fiery column of light or the axis mundi, which is the bridge between ihloka (current realm of existence) and parlok (the subsequent one). The lingam that you see on this page is a fine example of this powerful Shaivite symbol.

The distinctive stature of this sculpture would add to your space an aura of the otherworldly. The lingams in many Shiva temples around the subcontinent are said to be self-existent (to have emerged naturally out of the ground). Filled with divine power, Shiva-lingam moortis are seen to emerge from a womb chamber where prayers for fecundity are offered by devotees. The same, together with the yoni-esque extension (along the transverse section), serve as a drain to carry away the libation poured over the lingam. In fact, the Shiva-lingam ensemble expresses the singular togetherness of Shiva with His Parvati.

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.
