The Shiva Lingam, a Sacred Stone
The Shiva Lingam is one of the most sacred stones of the ancient as well as the modern world. These lingams come only from the Narmada River in the Central Western part of India. Those of you who have seen the movie Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom may recall they were searching for the sacred stone. The Shiva Lingam is that sacred stone. Accessible only during the dry season, these stones are collected from the river bed by only a few families who have been trained in the way to identify only the most special pieces. Once collected, these incredible artisans finally shape and polish the stones to bring out the natural markings which are inherent in their composition, much like a diamond cutter who cuts the rough material to bring out the best in the diamond.
The Lingam is symbolic of the Divine Creative manifestation. The Lingam shape is representative of the power of Shiva, the Lord of Creation, the masculine creative energy. The markings, also known as the yoni, symbolize the feminine energy, the seed which is fertilized to manifest the creative power in the dance of the cosmos. Geologists theorize that the iron oxide of which the yoni is composed, was impregnated in the river bed millions of years ago by a meteorite. The Lingam also represents the harmony or balance of the soul that is maintained within the hearts of all of us, the Light that shines from within. It is actually the shape of the soul and the consummate balance of the Universe.
This Sacred Stone relates to the fifth chakra, the heart chakra, and is the manifestation of the love energy that resides in all of us. It seems by destiny everyone has a Lingam that has an energy that relates intimately to them. Our Lingams are processed according to ancient Vedic tradition that has been passed down from one generation to another from Guru to disciple. The quartz composition (along with basalt and agate) and the shape make them powerful energy generators appropriate for healing and unique as tools for meditation and cleansing. A sage stated, "If a minilingam is worn, it will affect mind and heart in positive ways."
