Meaning of seeing shivling in dream - Dream meaning

Traditional flower offering to a lingam in Varanasi

The lingam (IAST. liṅgaṃ. also linga. ling. Shiva linga. Shiv ling. meaning sign. symbol or phallus [ 1 ] [ 2 ] ) is an abstract or aniconic representation of the Hindu deity, Shiva. used for worship in temples. smaller shrines, or as self-manifested natural objects. [ 3 ] [ 4 ] In traditional Indian society, the linga is rather seen as a symbol of the energy and potential of God, Shiva himself. [ 5 ] [ 6 ] [ 7 ]

Origin Edit

Lingobhava Shiva: God Shiva appears as in an infinite Linga fire-pillar, as Vishnu as Varaha tries to find the bottom of the Linga while Brahma tries to find its top. This infinite pillar conveys the infinite nature of Shiva. [ 12 ]

Anthropologist Christopher John Fuller conveys that although most sculpted images (murtis ) are anthropomorphic. the aniconic Shiva Linga is an important exception. [ 13 ] Some believe that linga-worship was a feature of indigenous Indian religion. [ 14 ]

The Hindu scripture. Shiva Purana . describes the origin of the lingam, known as Shiva-linga, as the beginning-less and endless cosmic pillar (Stambha ) of fire, the cause of all causes. [ 17 ] Lord Shiva is pictured as emerging from the Lingam – the cosmic pillar of Fire – proving his superiority over gods Brahma and Vishnu. [ 12 ] This is known as Lingodbhava. The Linga Purana also supports this interpretation of lingam as a cosmic pillar, symbolizing the infinite nature of Shiva. [ 12 ] [ 15 ] [ 16 ] [ 18 ] According to Linga Purana. the lingam is a complete symbolic representation of the formless Universe Bearer - the oval shaped Stone is resembling mark of the Universe and bottom base as the Supreme Power holding the entire Universe in it. [ 19 ] Similar interpretation is also found in the Skanda Purana. "The endless sky (that great void which contains the entire universe) is the Linga, the Earth is its base. At the end of time the entire universe and all the Gods finally merge in the Linga itself." [ 20 ] In yogic lore, the linga is considered the first form to arise when creation occurs, and also the last form before the dissolution of creation. It is therefore seen as an access to Shiva or that which lies beyond physical creation. [ 21 ]
