What is Shivling … ??

Shiva has two bodies. One is to be expressed grossly, the other is to be known as the subtle latent gender. Shiva is most worshiped as a linga stone. There is a lot of confusion about the word gender. Gender in Sanskrit means sign. In this sense it is used for Shivling. Shivalinga means: Shiva, i.e. the sign of the Supreme Being coordinated with nature.

Shiva, Shankar, Mahadev …

Shiva’s name is associated with Shankar, people say – Shiva Shankar Bholenath. In this way, many people unknowingly refer to Shiva and Shankar as two names of the same power. In fact, the statues of the two are of different shapes. Shankara is always portrayed as an ascetic. In many places, Shankar is shown meditating on Shivling. Shiva has created three astral deities named Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh (Mahesh is also Shankar’s name) respectively for the establishment, cradle and destruction of creation. Thus Shiva became the creator of the universe and Shankara became one of his creations. That is why Lord Shiva is also called Mahadev. Apart from this, Shiva is also known and worshiped by 108 other names.

Shiva is also called Ardhanarishvara, it does not mean that Shiva is only half male or he does not have perfection. In fact, it is Shiva who is complete even though he is half. The basis and creator of this creation i.e. man and woman are the same forms of Shiva and Shakti. This world is governed and balanced by their union and creation. Both complement each other. Women are nature and men are men. Without nature man is useless and without man nature. The two have an interdependent relationship. Ardhanarishvara Shiva is the symbol of this reciprocity. The emphasis on the equality of men and women in modern times can be seen and understood in this form of Shiva. It shows that Shiva is able only when he is strong. In the absence of power, Shiva does not become ‘Shiva’ but ‘corpse’.
