Difference between Sphatik and Parad Shivling
Shivling by itself is immensely powerful and worshipping it is meritorious. But the material it is made of also contributes to the benefits that worshiping a certain Shivling gives.
Parad Shivling is made of Mercury which is put through several stages of purification before it is made into a Shivling form. As Mercury is in fluid form, it is unstable, just like the human mind, the process of solidifying Mercury has a connection with stabilizing or calming the mind. Meditating with a Parad Shivling in close proximity calms the mind and helps to connect with the absolute truth, Lord Shiva.
Worshipping the Parad Shivling is said to be equivalent to worshipping thousands of Stone Shivlings. Whereas, worshipping the Sphatik Shivling is said to be similar to worshipping the 12 Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva. Sphatik gemstone is the purest of all gemstones, so Spatika Lingam is extremely pure and purifies the surrounding energies. Parad is considered to be the sperm of Lord Shiva, the seed of all creation, making it the most auspicious and purest of all material and matter. This makes the Parad Shivling most auspicious and the purest among all Shivlings.
Worshipping the Parad Shivling blesses the devotee with name, fame, glory, prosperity, knowledge, peace, help achieve high portfolio professionally, bestow with all-round worldly pleasures, peace, happiness, spiritual growth, and attainments, fulfill desires and lead to Moksha or liberation. When a Parad Shivling is kept in-home/office it brings in positive energies, banishing lower, evil, negative forces.
The Holy Scriptures are replete with the many attributes of the Parad Shivling, describing it as the giver of Dharma (righteousness), Artha (wealth), Kama (pleasures), and Moksha (liberation). It is believed that the mere darshan or sight of the real Parad (Mercury) Shivling absolves the most heinous of sins. Touching it is said to help move beyond material unhappiness and help to awaken spiritually.
We have listed the many merits of worshipping the Sphatik Shivling above. Both the Parad and the Sphatik Shiva Lingam have potent qualities and bestow miraculous outcomes.
Q. One school of thought says that Shiva Linga should not be placed in house. Should be in temples only. Do they refer to Parad Linga ... or is it general to all. A. I do not know which school of thought says that. There are so many negative people in this world who spread so many bad things about such divine items like a conch, shiva linga, saligrama, or Maha Meru. Jiva's get jealous and scare other jiva's assuming they might get the grace of the Lord or other karmic reasons. My jiva was advised by these people saying do not do it etc, but I went out of the line and started my sadhana. I am n
Hello, Some of the changes I've noticed: a sense of 'guidance' with the Indra mala; little or no resistance to goals (Ganesha must be at work here!); greater prosperity in all areas; enhanced awareness. There are so many changes but I have come to accept them now and so it is hard to recall them. Perhaps the one I am most impressed with -- and surprised at--is the complete lack of obstacles. Maybe some will show up at a later time, but for now they are startlingly absent. Blessings... C. Y.
Dear Neetaji: Namaste. I received the Parad Shivaling and other items right on time. The Shivaling is very beautiful. Thanks a lot for that and also for so many generous gifts. I liked them all very much, especially those three high quality Rudrakshas in a beautiful Om box. Thanks again. Regards, Amit Salimath
Dear Ms. Neeta, I am a very satisfied client of parad ring. I have received many blessings and good fortune since I have worn it. Nothing more, I wanna tell you but three words only "God Bless You". Regards, M. Patel
I just received my package containing the rare black 10 inch narmada shivalinga and the parad bracelet. I had been inspired the night before to arrange the other large shivalingas I have in my temple to represent the four directions of the compass as well as the four varnas and the four elements. My biggest one is a brown narmada shivalinga that is a foot long and weighs 20 pounds. As I pulled the living embodiment of Lord Shiva out of the plastic, I felt giddy all over as a girl about to be wedded to her husband. The linga fitted perfectly into a white marble mortar I had bought many months a
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the parad items you offer at Rudra centre. I have had great success helping people with the beads, please pass on my gratitude to the guru who makes them and tell him I am very grateful. OM NAMAH SHIVAYA, John David Brodie
Hi, I just wanted to say how delighted I am with my experience shopping on your website. I just purchased a Narmada Lingam with stand, to be sent to the UK. The Lingam arrived in four days, and is beautiful - exactly as described. I have had big trouble with other websites based in India, and I have to say you stand head and shoulders above all others. Shopping with you was as easy a shopping at Amazon UK, and delivery almost as quick! I am now about to visit your site again to purchase several other items, and will now do so with utter confidence. I will take great delight in recommending you
First of all I would like to thank Miss Neeta for giving in-depth consultation on the purchase of a Shiva Lingam from Rudracentre. I was having few questions in my mind pertaining the type of Lingam that suits myself. It is when Miss Neeta elucidated the points and choices I have for the purchase, I finally made my mind to purchase a Shiva Lingam. She then handed over the necessary arrangments for the purchase to a very down-to-earth and competent staff named Mr. Vikram. I would like to thank him very much for all the help and arrangements he made for my purchase here. All these pleasant exper
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
Just wanted you to know, I received all the items, as always you all are perfect! No one provides better service than you! I made a mistake and ordered crystal shivling from another company and have not yet received it. Thanks, SR
