What is Shiva lingam stone?
Before understanding the Significance of Shiva lingam stone
, we must understand who is Shiva any why Shiva is worshipped all over the globe.
Shiva is eternal, unborn, omniscient and most importantly simplest and kind Lord, who is shapeless. It is his wish due to which this universe came into existence.
Various Civilization worships him from different names and forms, for example, Shiva Lingam is regarded to as Prayapas by the Romans.
Most importantly Shiva lingam is connected to Santana Dharma.
Shiva lingam stone connection with Sanatana Dharma
Sanatana Dharma simply means eternal Dharma.
Sanatana Dharma has no founder
and based on the foundation of achieving Liberation.
Sanatana Dharma is regarded as the ancient culture in the world whose history is more than 5000+ years old, probably 1000 years old.
There are no hard bounded rules in the Sanatana Dharma. It gives complete freedom to practising moral ethics.
It allows people to live in complete peace of mind and Happiness.
The word Hindus we used to refer to Sanatana Dharma is actually inappropriate. They all are Sanatana Dharmi.
It is their simplicity that they don't mind and keep moving towards the path of Moksha or liberation.
Shiva Lingam is a huge part of their lives. Lingam is the icons of Shiva
. Therefore they are called as Shivling.
Shivalingam represents the shapeless form of Shiva which came from Sadashiva.
So the question comes what is the difference between Shiva and Sadashiva.
Understanding Shiva from SadaShiva
According to Sanatana Dharma, Truth is one and sages say it differently
. It is like one's energy who manifested herself in different forms.
It is the reason for Sanatana Dharma, that there are more than millions of deities. Each deity is the representation of one form.
People worship their own deity but among them, there are three major Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh
collectively known as
Lord Vishnu is Narayan and Mahesh is Lord Shiva.
Lord Vishnu and Shiva are the most influential in all.
Any religious event is incomplete without worshipping these two (Vishnu and Shiva).
Shiva and Vishnu share the bond of affection with each other. Shiva is too dear to Lord Vishnu. It is the reason Shiva is Known as Vishnu Vallabha (means the one who is most dear to Vishnu)
Once Shiva manifested himself as half Vishnu and half Shiva and said that I m Shiva as well as Vishnu.
When Narayan worship Shiva in human Avatar as
. Shiva used to do the cosmic
which symbolizes that Shiva and Vishnu are devotees as well as lords for each other.
There is another reality that Actually Shiva never worshipped anyone. He is Sampoorna (complete) in himself and greatest destroyer of the ego
Shiva as Omkara
The shapeless form of Shiva is SadaShiva which is also known as Omkar
. Everything emerges from him and goes back into him.
He is beyond time, space and wheel of Karma.
Lord Vishnu Emerged first from the SadaShiva, then Brahma appeared from Lord Vishnu navel part.
Both Vishnu and Brahma requested shapeless SadaShiva to take some morph so that they could have an iconographical representation of SadaShiva.
Sadashiv took the huge oval form which is known as Lingam
SadaShiva told them that Brahma and Narayan you are came out of my Wish. Hence you both are my energies.
Brahma you will perform creation, Vishnu you will preserve Brahma creation and I will take responsibility of being a
Destroyer of darkness
I will manifest myself as Rudra
who will appear on Mount Kailash and known for living ascetic way.
Hence Vishnu is first who came out of Sadashiva then Brahma came out of Lord Vishnu navel lotus last but not the least Shiva appeared from SadaShiva.
Shiva Lingam Stones energy concept
Sanctum of Shiv Lingam is known as Garbhagraha and all Shiva temples are known as Shivalaya.
Shiva Lingam contains both creations as well as destruction together.
Shiva Lingam has Cosmic Lingam and Cosmic Yoni means cosmic male and female genital in it.
Shiv lingam is an egg-shaped primary form of Hiranyagarbha which mean primitive life. This is equivalent to DNA which consists of the genetic code.

The Modern-day technology understands it but before the year 1953 technology was unaware of the concept of DNA.
In that era, Vedic Sages were aware of the concept of DNA as a double helical structure.
Sages gain all the knowledge from AdiGuru Shiva through the path of
meditation and penance .
Shiva Lingam is also the representation of the atomic structure.
According to atomic science atomic structure contains the Electron, Proton and Neutron.
Protons & neutrons are surrounded by fast spinning electrons. Brahma is tied by lotus thread with Lord Vishnu exactly like the electron is bound with the proton.
- Shiva = Neutron
- Vishnu = Proton
- Brahma = Electron
On the other side, Neutron is neutral who doesn't participate actively in the process but contains immense energy which could be constructive as well as destructive.
Sages Vashishtha defined that when Shiva's energy is released; it is released in the form of Durga
. This energy is actually energy of the atom which is colossal in nature.
The energy of Shiva is always around Shiva and dancing in the form of Maheshwari. This energy is indescribable in worlds.
Therefore Shiva doesn't actively participate in anything and commonly known for his Vairagya
his strength is supreme. It is believed that nobody could handle the weight of Shiva's trident except Shiva and Shakti
Modern science also noticed the same pattern of energy. They found that atom perform a cosmic dance around the nucleus and when the nucleus is
broken down immense energy is released.
Shiva Lingam stone resembles the nuclear reactor.
When we closely observe Shiva Lingam and nuclear reactor boths looks similar.
It is observable that Nuclear reactor is always established near the water bodies, similarly, Shiva Lingam is always found near rivers and water bodies.
Water is poured on Shivlinga as the coolant by Shiva devotees. Similarly, Coolant liquid is used in nuclear reactor.

Shiva is totally unique and different who believes in unorthodox lifestyle.
Hence there is no one like Shiva
There are many types of Shivlingam
stones and they could be classified on the various basis.
Some of the Shivlingam stone can be classified based on who is worshipping them. But before that, we need to understand that
Shiva is the one who never differentiates his devotees based on their Karma.
It is the reasons Demons and demigods including other categories worship Shiva in their own personalized way. Shiva listens and accepts everyone
Yes, Shiva listens to everyone whether he is demon or demigods; it might sound strange but that the way it is.
