Week 12. Quality Relationships: The Shiva-Lingam as the representation of the cosmic love Copy

The most popular form of worshipping Lord Shiva in Hinduism is in the Linga form. It is known as Shivling or Shivalinga. The Linga symbol is an attempt to give form to the formless, referred as Supreme Being

When a Linga is installed on a Yoni, it represents the inseparable relation of Shiva and Shakti – the beginning of creation, the union of Prakriti (active energy) and Purusha (consciousness) and can be understood as the dance of the two complementary poles, masculine and feminine.

The Shivalinga is made up of three parts, representing the Trimurti (Trinity). The part that touches the ground is called Brahma and represents the creation of the Universe. The middle part is Vishnu and preserves the creation, while the top part, Shiva, symbolizes destruction or absorption.
