The Shiva Lingham is the sacred 'stone of nurturing'. The Shiva Lingham Stone is from the sacred Narmada River in Onkar Mandhata, one of India's seven holy sites. Villagers gather this unique Crypto-crystalline quartz from shallow riverbeds. Lingham describes the shape-egg like, but hand polished to balanced proportions. This often worshiped fertility stone is revered by Hindus as the embodiment of Lord Shiva. Lingham is also the sacred Sanskrit word for phallus.
In Tantra, the shape embodies masculine energy, dynamic expression and knowledge. The markings named Yoni (sacred sanskrit word for vulva), depicts the feminine energy, wisdom and intuition. Together, the female energy arouses the masculine urge to create. As such, the Tantric Lingham unifies the dualistic (male female) world into harmonious balance.
The Shiva Lingham Stone is a physical body stone as it nurtures the second chakra. A great stone for those who did not receive proper nurturing in childhood. Use Chrysoprase with the Shiva Lingham stone to add courage to see the early experience and how it effects your life. Place the Chrysoprase between the first and second chakras in a healing session.
