Shivalinga and Worship


Shivalinga and Worship:

Shivlinga or Shiva lingam connects a devotee with the Supreme Being - Lord Shiva. The lingam is the symbol of Lord Shiva and Lingam puja helps the devotee in aligning with Shiva consciousness. The Lord cannot be described, but still we say he is without a beginning and an end and is without a form. It is difficult for a devotee to understand this formless nature. Therefore Lord Shiva appeared in the form of Jyotirlinga before Brahma and Vishnu. Each Lingam puja, step by step, takes the devotee to the eternal truth - that he/she is part of the Supreme Being.

Worship Procedure (Short Version)

While chanting "Om Namah Shivaya" or singing "Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra", do abhisheka of lingam with clean water. Follow this with milk and then with rose water and clean water. Then follow with panchamrit abhishek and thereafter offer Ganges water to the lingam. Water and sandalwood paste is used to keep the lingam cool, as Lord Shiva is always in a highly inflammable state. In some Shiva temples, cooling liquid constantly drops from pot hung above the Lingam.

Wipe with a soft cloth and install in place of worship with full love and devotion. Apply Vibuthi, sandal paste and saffron. Offer incense/Dhoop of Gugal and deck with flowers. For items not available, substitute with flowers or unbroken rice.

Bel leaf is most important offering to Lord Shiva. It is kept on the pindi with its back facing upwards and the stalk pointing toward the worshipper. The intention is to draw the combined energy from these three leaf petals towards oneself, leading to the reduction of one's trigunas.

Nextly, sweets, coconut and fruits are offered to the Lord. Camphor and incense are lit and 'aarti' is conducted.

Finally, ringing of bells or blowing of conch indicates the end of Puja. White ash (Vibhuti) is rubbed on the forehead and it is also distributed. Fruits, sweets and coconut are distributed as 'prasad'.

Rudram chanting pleases Lord Shiva which is either recited or played during the Abhisheka (Divine Bathing). The divine vibrations of these mantras cleanse the soul and environment. A prayer done with pure heart and a desire to surrender to the consciousness is always heard.

  • They affect the senses in a mystical way

    Hi, I just had the order, Blue stone yantra and Shiva lingam. They are the best things I have ordered from you, they are very esoteric, and still the mind effectively. They affect the senses in a mystical way, like seeing strange blue or black light around. The Ametyst mala matches very well with the energies of blue sunstone. My recommendation for esoteric people: Ametyst mala + Blue sunstone Sri Cakra/Sivalingam + Shani yantra with dark blue cosmic colour + Lotus incense. I think they are capable to lead one to the Turya state. Best wishes, Marko close

  • My First Divine Experience at Rudracentre Mumbai on Mahashivaratri

    Jai Gurudev and a Happy Monday, Rudra Puja, or Rudrabhisheka, which is one of the most ancient and profound rituals in the Indian subcontinent was performed yesterday at Rudracentre Mumbai by Neetaji. It was a puja, a worship, of the benevolent aspect of the consciousness called Shiva, or Rudra. For me, this first Puja which I witnessed by staying awake full night on Mahashivaratri was a spontaneous happening which was born out of the fullness and contentment of myself. It was an innocent playful process reciprocating the supreme love of nature. The state of mind with which the puja was perfor close
