Is Banlinga/Naramadeshwar proscribed to keep at home? Why? Any story behind them?

  • Yes banalinga can be kept at home.Here are the reasons-There r 2 types of prana paratishta in idols 1)Achala & 2)Chala.Achala is the one where avahanam.visarjanam r not needed.This type is recommended for Temples.Here God stays all the time.In homes chala pratishta is recommended.In this case both avahanam and visarjanam is required.Now since Banalingas r swaymabhu avahana.visarjana r not needed in them ,so can be safely kept and worshiped in homes.U can see this Q-hinduism.stackexchange.com/questions/15434/… – Rickross Oct 20 '16 at 7:50
