Shiva Lingam

Apart from anthropomorphic images of Lord Shiva, one of the most popular worship of Lord Shiva is made in the form of a Linga (also known as Ling, Shiva Lingam, Shiv Ling, Lingam).

ImageShiva Linga represents symbolically Lord Shiva Himself. Linga is seen as a symbol of the Divine Energy and potential of Lord Shiva Himself.

Shiva means auspiciousness, and Lingam means a sign or a symbol, so the Shivalinga is regarded as a symbol of the great God of the universe Who is all-auspicious. These are depicted in various forms. One of the most common forms is the shape of a vertical rounded column.
