Shiva Lingam is a sacred stone named after Lord Shiva, who dances the universe into existence. It symbolizes the union of the Hindu gods Shiva and Kali; as such, this stone has united masculine and feminine energies for thousands of years. As a stone of fertility and enlightenment, it awakens attraction within its carriers, as well as fecundity in all parts of life. Shiva Lingam can also awaken the Kundalini energies necessary for self-transformation, eliminating past pains and helping one place trust in their spirit.
Shiva Lingam carries many associations, symbolizing a variety of concepts. Some believe it is connected to the ultimate power of the universe, or the comic egg from which all of reality was born.
Some believe that placing a Shiva Lingam in an altar can bring peace and harmony into one’s home.
Shiva Lingam is a shaped stone, found and hand-polished in India. Natural specimens come from the sacred Narmada River in the Maridhata Mountains, one of the seven holy grounds in the country.
