The Sanctum of Shiva Lingam is known as Garbhagraha, and all Shiva temples are known as Shivalaya.

Most importantly, different civilization worships Shiva by different names and forms, for example, Shiva Lingam is regarded as Prayapas by the Romans.

Scientific analysis of Shiva Lingam

Before understanding the scientific analysis of Lingam; we need to explore little information about Vedic era. It is imperative to understand the glory of ancient India to get the scientific analysis of Shiva Lingam.

That might sound unusual but before the birth of modern science, Vedic Sages 5000+ years ago were aware of the concept of DNA and its double helical structure.

Whereas, modern science discovered it on year 1953. Kidney, heart even brain surgeries were performed by Sage Sushruta in the ancient ages.

Sages got all the knowledge from the first guru, Shiva through the path of meditation, penance, Yoga, and explorations.

These sages concluded that Shiva Lingam contains an atomic structure in its fundamental nature of reality.

  1. Neutron = Shiva = Neutral Charge
  2. Proton = Vishnu = Positive Charge
  3. Electron = Brahma = negative Charge

Electron spins around the neutron and proton whereas neutron and proton forms nucleus.

Lord Brahma is sitting over a lotus flower whose stem emerged from Lord Vishnu navel precisely like the electron is connected with the proton.

On the other side, Neutron is neutral who doesn't actively participate in the process but contains immense energy which could be constructive as well as destructive.

In the contemporary form, Shiva doesn't actively participate in anything known for his Vairagya, but he has limitless strength.

Sages Vashishtha described that Shiva's energy releases in the form of Rudrani or Durga.

The energy of Shiva is always around him and dancing in the form of Rudrani. That energy is indescribable in worlds.

That energy is indeed energy of the atom which is colossal in nature.

From the aspect of modern science, physics also noticed the same pattern of energy.

They found that energy performs a cosmic dance around the nucleus, and, if the nucleus splits enormous power is released.

That is the energy of the Shiva.

The composition of the Shiva lingam

Every Shiva lingam has three significant parts.

  • The bottom part is grounded.
  • The central part is a pedestal portion of the lingam.
  • The top portion is curved.

The pedestal provides the passage to the water poured over the Lingam.

The three portions signify Brahma at the bottom, Vishnu in the central and Shiva on the top.

The snake coiled around Lingam represents Kundalini energy which signifies that Shiva governs the Kundalini Chakras of the individual and provides power to them.
