शिवप्रियतमो ज्ञेयो रुद्रादतः परवानः
दर्शनात्स्पर्शना जाप्या त्सर्वपापहरः स्मृतः

8) Can you please explain to us the significance of a Parthiv Lingam?
Ans. The great sage Suta explains the significance of Parthiv Lingam:
"Parthiva Linga is the most supreme among all the Shivalingas. All the aspirtions of he deities as well as men are fulfilled by the worship of Parthiv linga. During the era of Satya, jewel was considered to be of prime importance, whereas during Treta Yuga and Dwapar Yuga, gold and mercury had the prime importance respectively. In the present era of Kali, a Parthiva Linga holds this place of honor. The worship of Parthiva Linga begets more virtues than even penance. Just as Ganga among the rivers, Kashi among the sacred places of pilgrimages, Omkar among all the mantras are considered to be superior, In the same way Parthivalinga is considered to the supreme among all the Linga. Worshipping, a Parthiva linga with a 'Nishkam bhava' helps a man to attain liberation."
