'Shiva linga' is a form , a symbol of our origin. Form is tangible and objective, thought is intangible and subjective. "When 'linga' meets with 'yoni' we come in this universe, we born , we incarnate, it's a symbol, how we came in existence, how we originated." If linga and yoni doesn't meet we never born.

Someone give me the reason to worship it. It creates more questions:

  • So how the first man and women come to existence?
  • And what is the role of GOD if we need to worship to our body parts?
  • Because Shiva got cursed by Maharishi Bhrigu that He will only be worshiped in linga form, not his body form. For more detail read this answer. – Vishvam Jul 1 '17 at 4:27

    You worship your body parts? We don't. – Rickross Jul 1 '17 at 5:03

    Linga is not body part of any human. Linga is mark or symbol of Parabrahman. – The Destroyer Jul 1 '17 at 5:50
  • @Rishabh Shiva got cursed? God can be cursed, what is the logic of God in Hinduism, ask a question which opens more doubts – Ali Adravi Jul 1 '17 at 15:49
  • @Rickross: Just comment without understand anything, I try to understand the concept but you fall down to personal comments. Do a deep research of it and then comment. – Ali Adravi Jul 1 '17 at 15:51

No one knows for sure how life began.

Scientifically speaking it has been reasoned that very primitive forms of life like amoeba originated and gradually became organized, became more complex evolving into life forms that evolved in stages like a fish, an animal and man in several avatars with increased function of mind action over the body. Darwin has a popular theory of evolution based on competition,survival and adaptation.

Males and females of every species know well how they can initiate life but know almost nothing beyond that.. The male earns or hunts food and provides protection against the elements, the female cares until the young acquire their own capacity to care for themselves.In no other way they know how by artificial means can new life be created or controlled.

Spiritually it is believed in many faiths that life is given in and taken out by a Superior composite form that is structured both ways, integrated in all living entities and at the same time contained within every life form.This spiritual awareness varies across all life forms in many cultures.

Worship of Shiv-Ling including yoni form is a Bhakthi addressal to the Superior form contained in us about the mysterious cyclic process of creation,sustenance and eventual amalgamation with myriad individual and social group connections.

It is not worship of the likeness of our own body parts meant for duplication.It is the nature of connection to the Supernatural regarding Adwaithic identity designed to removes ego-centrality. Main difficulty is due to extreme variance in modes of dependence to God manifested in such vagueness and awareness amongst us.

  • Bro you are telling me the biology. I asked about the reason of worship of Linga. Is there any proof in Linga Veda? Otherwise we need to worship the Amoiba, fishes, animals etc. – Ali Adravi Jul 1 '17 at 1:51
  • @AliAdravi What Amoiba, fishes and animals will give on in return of your worship? – Vishvam Jul 1 '17 at 5:26
  • Neither worshiping fishes, animals will give anything nor the Linga. Only our Lord the creator gives us. – Ali Adravi Jul 1 '17 at 15:47
  • @AliAdravi What do u mean by "nor the Linga". Linga is the formless (bodyless) shiva. And shiva is the Lord. Shiva first appear as energy pillar and that energy pillar has become the symbol of shiva which we knows as Shivlinga. Shiva linga word has come from Sanskrit where Shiva means "Lord Shiva" And Linga means "Symbol/Mark". HENCE Shiv Linga means "Symbol Of Shiva". Means Symbol of Lord. – Vishvam Jul 1 '17 at 16:40
  • @Rishabh: Ling means Mark then what is the meaning of YONI which is the part of ShivLing. Everyone know LING & YONI is the male and female sexual parts. If linga is formess then what this form is which people worship? – Ali Adravi Jul 3 '17 at 1:29
