Worshiping Lord’s Phallus!

shiva

Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. Parvati worshipping Shiva’s linga or Shiva’s phallus.

It is believed that the linga of Shiva, cursed by the sages, fell on the earth and burnt everything before it like fire. Parvati, the wife of Lord Shiva, took the form of a yoni or vagina and calmed it by holding the linga in her yoni.’
Shivalinga

According to the Hindu mythology:
‘During the great mythical churning of the ocean called Samudra Manthan, a pot of poison emerged from the ocean. The gods and the demons were terrified as it could destroy the entire world. When they ran to Shiva for help, he in order to protect the world, drank the deadly poison but held it in his throat instead of swallowing it. This turned his throat blue, and since then he came to be known as ‘Nilkantha’, the blue-throated one.’

The phallus symbol representing Shiva is called the lingam. It is usually made of granite, soapstone, quartz, marble or metal, and has a ‘yoni’ or vagina as its base representing the union of organs. Devotees circumambulate the lingam and worship it throughout the night. It is bathed every three hours with the 5 sacred offerings of a cow, called the ‘panchagavya’ – milk, sour milk, cow dung, cow urine, butter. Then the 5 foods of immortality – milk, clarified butter, curd, honey and sugar are placed before the lingam. Datura fruit and flower, though poisonous, are believed to be sacred to Shiva and thus offered to him.

Maha Shiva ratri is going to be celebrated tonight.

All through the day the devotees keep severe fast, chant the sacred Panchakshara mantra “Om Namah Shivaya”, make offerings of flowers and incense to the Lord amidst ringing of temple bells. They maintain long vigils during the night, keeping awake to listen to stories, hymns and songs. The fast is broken only the next morning, after the nightlong worship.

Shivratri is considered especially auspicious for women. Married women pray for the well being of their husbands and sons, while unmarried women pray for an ideal husband like Shiva, who is the spouse of Kali, Parvati and Durga.

Yoni Altar

Hindus not only worship penises, they worship vaginas too.
The erotic parts of Hindu mythology are fascinating but the truth is, like other religions, Hinduism is also a highly patriarchal religion. There are many rituals for women to pray for the well-being of their husbands and sons but there is no ritual for men to pray for the well-being of their wives and daughters.

    “Man is made by his belief, as believe so he is”. So it depend upon the person what he/she believe in, no body is right and no body is wrong, its the way we look at the things around us ….what is good to us is bad for others and whatever bad for us may be good for others…., its only our point of view doesn’t match with our opponents..

    I am not so religious but I know little about this. What you mentioned here is not 100% true. You have made a mistake by saying Shiva’s Linga is the part of his genital. The explanation of the Shiva-Linga as a phallic emblem was brought forward by the most thoughtless, and was forthcoming in India in her most degraded times, those of the downfall of Buddhism.In fact the Shiva-Linga had its origin in the idea of the Yupa-Stambha or Skambha—the sacrificial post, idealized in Vedic ritual as the symbol of the Eternal Brahman.

    Dear Taslima,

    Are you happy without embracing any religion and its faith. You have done enough harm to yourself along with our society. Man and woman are just born, nonody made them purposely. Either God or nature has made them to preserve this beaitiful world. There are many differences scientifically or otherwise. Please accept it. Mother Nature is great, please accept man and woman in their own form. Do not try to go against nature, it will definitely harm. In Hidu mythology Man and woman has equal rights. Lord shiva and Parvati had equal power too.
    So forget all agony and embrace Islam your original religion, come to main stream society and enjoy life. Better say sorry to your countrymen for all you did wrong and go back to yoiur country and live happily over thre. Good wishes to you.

      You are an ignorant, idiot, filthy religious fanatic. If you believe in women’s equal rights, you would not have misogynistic systems like sati, dowry, widow suffering etc. and you would not have continued raping, abusing, murdering children and women everyday.

      • kamakoti maheshrao says

        Greetings,
        According to Vedas, reproduction is a sacred part of life when a purposeful couple wishes to create offspring. In past, the aim of life on earth was to serve the nature, beings and gain knowledge of the energy and vibration of the universe and embrace life. This is the tendency of God, being selfless and serving others. According to vedas, even stone has vibration and hence life and memory. Every particle has vibration and that is the force of the Source.
        India was a country where many liberated sages and rishis llived and taught eternal truth. This was a culture across Asia and middle east. Not a religion. It taught Sanatana dharma, a practice common for all, irrespective of religion on race.
        Today, this country’s acumen is manipulated by invaders and wrong education is given to children, to get enslaved to the rulers. Many illusions are created by media and by western education. To know one’s source and truth, one should meditate and merge with self. Knowing and loving self is knowing universe.

        Dont go by what you see in media and read in books intellectually. Meditate and experience the self and know the truth. We all are being manipulated! You are the only authority of your life, and you are guided and protected by the light of the divine being in you. Make an attempt to connect to yourself.

        May peace be on all.
        Om.

        Dear Taslima,

        I appreciate your writing. But, seems an early conclusion. To me with my limited understanding, the shiva lingam is not about erotic intent of Hinduism. it is a symbol of balance between male and female. Every individual has a male and female in them. The balance between the counter parts opens up to God is the symbolic representation in a Shiva Lingam. However, hinduism doesn’t see sexual motives as a taboo. I hope you are still exploring about this subject.

        Regarding the system of Sati, Dowry, Widow Suffering and most importantly the Caste-ism – these were misinterpreted from the Vedic history by some fanatics for their personal interests. It is not a standard custom of the religion, as seen today.

      • says

        Dear Taslima,

        My sincere apologies for differing your thoughts

        The sati, dowry, widow suffering are the aftermath of the Muslim invasion of the country as they were trying all possible opportunities to convert the hindus and no texts has mentioned any thing about the above beliefs as most of the girls were married early their husbands age was more so the males were either dying in war or due to some illness and to protect them from other muslims these things started as most of the hindus were peace loving and was not at war always for the sake of women ,as they kept women in very High Esteem
        Sati was the call taken by the lady in subject unable to bear her husbands loss and fearing for her security later on also induced by forceful marriage to somebody of other Religion

        Dowry is a recent Evil ,and our vedas also do not accept this,and the girls were treated as godess themselves

        and of course we also condemn the heinous crimes on women in modern day world as it is happening due to the dis attachment from the cultural roots we had

        and we say Sarve Janah sukhino Bhavanthu , ( Let all Human kind live in Peace and Prosperity)

    Hindus shows the greatest respect to women than any other religion,
    we worship Durga,Lakshmi and saraswati for 4 days continuously in the month of October.

    then in November we worship Kali.

    every house of Hindus have more female deities than males

    don’t talk rubbish Taslima

    • says

      You guys worship goddesses. But you hate,harass, exploit, abuse, rape, gang-rape, traffic, murder your girls and women everyday. Go see the statistics. It is very high compare to other countries which do not worship goddesses.

        • MANISH says

          I respect woman and i am a Hindu. No religion is bad but the people are good or bad or a people of particular region are good or bad not because of religion but because of lack of education, morality, character, or because of shortage of daily needs fulfillment like food, shelter and other stuff.

          Muslim girls dream to marry a Hindu guy because they know that Hindu males are respectful to their spouse and they are faithful to them and even in the worst case they don’t bring four wives at home and believe me these are not my thoughts, but told to me by Muslim girls during my school and graduation time.

          i want to maintain one thing, no religion is bad , you never learned from history and still want to make it worst.

          god is love ……………..where hate exist………..god leaves that place……!!

          So be kind and cool minded instead of saying anything for a particular region, religion, caste, sex, whatever……people are not bad there deeds are good or bad…and first give up your ego…and try to understand other’s.

            i beg to differ your statement, hindus dont respect women!

            Women can be won in a dice game & enslaved
            Mahabharata 2:LXVI (p.128)…But Dussasana dragging Draupadi forcibly by her black locks while she was praying piteously unto Krishna and Vishnu who were Narayana and Nara (on earth), said unto her–‘Whether thy season hath come or not, whether thou art attired in one piece of cloth or entirely naked, when thou hast been won at dice and made our slave, thou art to live amongst our serving-women as thou pleasest.”

            Beat & Rape Her
            Brihadâranyaka Upanishad VI:4:6. 7. If she should not grant him his desire, he should bribe her. If she still does not grant him his desire, he should hit her with a stick or with his hand, and overcome her, saying: ‘With power, with glory I take away your glory!’ Thus she becomes inglorious.

      • Endless says

        The founder of Islam is Prophet Muhammad, and thus Islam is a one-man made religion. Prophet Muhammad declared himself as the last prophet of God. It is very important to understand the actions of Prophet Muhammad to understand the Islamic mentality.
        Prophet Muhammad was married, marrying more than 20 times after the age of 50 to young girls and he was involved in wars.
        His marriages included marrying the 6 year old Aisha (his brother’s daughter) when he was 51. Women taken captive in war, including the 17 year old, Safiyyah, when he was 54 and the 20 year old Juwairiya, when he was 58. He even married his son’s wife.
        “That the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death).” (Sahih Bukhari: Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64)
        The above means Prophet Muhammad was 54 and she was only 9 when he started having sex with her.
        “Muhammad selected Safiyyah because of her beauty, made her his wife and gave a banquet at the wedding; then he had sex with Saffiyah at Sa`d-AsSahba..” (Sahih Bukhari 4.52.143)
        Safiyyah was a married woman who’s husband was killed by Prophet Muhammad’s men and he took her captive and married her. For the winning side to take the wives of enemies killed in war is considered righteous by Islamic standards.
        “O Prophet! We have made lawful to you the wives to whom you have given their dowers; and those ladies whom your right hands possess (from the prisoners of war) whom Allah has assigned to you..” (Koran 33:50)\

        I am not here for any religion but If god tell you something you should take it in his meaning not in your meaning.

        And About Shiva Lingam

        In Sanskrit, Linga means a ‘mark’ or a symbol, which points to an inference. Thus the Shiva Linga is a symbol of Lord Shiva – a mark that reminds of the Omnipotent Lord, which is formless.

        Shiva Linga speaks to the devotee in the unmistakable language of silence, and it is only the outward symbol of the formless being, Lord Shiva, who is the undying soul seated in the chambers of your heart, who is your in-dweller, your innermost self or ‘Atman,’ and who is identical with the supreme ‘Brahman.’

  5. secular says

    THis article is completely FALSE and has no meaning in real, not even closely related to any Genuine Hindu sculpture,

    the reality is http://dp999.wordpress.com/2008/06/23/misconception-about-shiv-linga/

    and as far as dowry, sati or widow suffering is concerned, please prove it to me these are orignially hindu culture, prove it to me its written in the sacred books like the vedas and i shall convert, go to the past, read history, find out why such systems had emerged within the Hindus, do your research and then open ur guttury mouth.

    there are many things. that can be easily misinterpreted, its upto the person how pervert minded he or she is and you my honey just proved me right by writing this article.

    If you DO NOT KNOW, about a religion or its customs or culture don’t bloddy comment.

    Taslima Nasreen, u r most blind mind F****d b***h ive ever come across in my life.

    and i will consider legal action for posting such a misleading article in public space and hurting religios sentiments.

    good luck.

  6. Aditya says

    Dear Taslima,
    On the one hand your observations about the condition of women is true and are reflected in the crime statistics. It is deplorable and something that rather should not happen.

    But for you to base your observations that they have root in religion is not correct. Infact the story that you have written about Mahashivratri above is factually incorrect, it is no different than any common place written stories.
    Shiv-lingam has nothing to do with the Shiva’s phallus, the representation Shiva-linga is just the representation of Shiva whose nature has no beginning and no end and is generous and bholenath (the simple one); On Maha-shivratri it is not just Shiv Panchakshara mantra that is chanted, but Rudram-Chamkam, Shiv mahimna amongst others.

    As far as Hindus treating women is concerned, I am the one who does the fast on Shivratri and not my wife;
    and there are many like me who do so, you may quote examples of everything wrong and curse Hinduism but for every tragedy that you quote, there are 1000 others who respect/revere and love our mothers/daughters/wife.

    You also mention Sati, for your information Sati was abolished by Raja Ram Mohan Roy in 19th Century and is not practiced anymore. Additionally the practice of Sati had its roots in Jauhar that wives of Rajput rulers did to escape the rape/mutilation/humiliation at the hands of Muslim invaders who did incredible damage to Hindu religion and Indian Culture.

    You want to highlight all that is bad sure do, but cursing religion has no end and is not fair. My knowledge of hinduism never told me all what you say so conveniently state in your writings. You are a writer of decent repute that comes with responsibility towards your readers.

    Aditya.

  7. says

    Tasleema,
    I think you deserve what you got. Don’t forget that you are in our country and at our mercy. Stop abusing Hinduism and don’t try to teach us. If the Hindus also go against you, you would have nowhere to hide. I once had sympathy for you, but now I think they should not have let you out of the country alive.

  8. Himanshu says

    Hi Tasleema,

    There are two types of people:

    1. Responsible ones:

    These are the people who are part of a group and take responsibility for the failures, as individuals and as a member of a group. They not only take responsibility, they also take charge. They take corrective action and keep taking action till the goal is reached. They don’t blame others, they blame themselves.

    2. Irresponsible ones

    These are the people who are not part of any group. They believe that their existence is a privilege for the society. They only criticize because they don’t know what else do. They’re not part of a solution, they are the problem.

    Which group you belong to?

    Do you believe that the society exists as two categories of humans, male and female? Male the oppressors and female the oppressed? People don’t become oppressed or oppressors because of their gender. It’s their thought and action.

    Your article title “Worshiping Lord’s Phallus! ” is as offensive as your intention of categorization – “Patriarchy, Religion” Don’t try to pretend that you know anything about them. Second, your language is not of any mature human being, you write like a child who is ever eager to jump to a quarrel.

    How do people treat offensive drains or quarrelsome people?

    “You are an ignorant, idiot, filthy religious fanatic. If you believe in women’s equal rights, you would not have misogynistic systems like sati, dowry, widow suffering etc. and you would not have continued raping, abusing, murdering children and women everyday.” :-)

    The real challenge for you is to first understand that who created all these wrongs you see all around. who is responsible? The answer is not what you think- “MEN!”

    Then, answer to yourself, “what are you doing to reduce the suffering of the society?”

    Don’t be a complainer, you’re better than that.

  9. sufie says

    shiva linga has nothing to do wid penis or nething else…it represent his power his neutral nature… u morons if u thinks ur religion is perfct…n yall respect women dan us…den u fkins luzers plz go and read story of soraya… in which a girl is half diggged into da ground wid habds bound…and throwing stones at her… wot was her crime?? she put sm makeup on her face…
    search youtube u’ll come to know da reality of muslims…how mch dey respect women…

  10. Amit says

    You are just another “typical” frustrated being, full of negative energy that you have nowhere else to spend than on mindlessly denigrating beliefs and cultures. Now, to blow you out of the water, Shiva linga is an aniconic representation of the Force that creates the universe. Get you facts right before venturing to write articles publicly.

  11. Sunil says

    Luv z god n thats lord shiva he z the ultimate planar, so dnt waste ur valuable tme n go n devotion it realy gvs divine pleasure to me om na ma sh va yai

  12. Vivek narain says

    Shiva and shivling have more to do with race than religion,in any case religion is always secondry to race.Shiva is the dravidian god,Vishnu is the caucasian god,taslima,as i understand bangla region should be closest to mongoloid race.Mongoloids prefer buddha or christ or in case of west bengal, the rebel fiery durga,doing a parallel of dassehra by way of durga puja,defying mainstream hinduism.

  13. Saurabh says

    People, truth is truth, it dosn’t need a scientist to observe Shivalinga is a penis and vagina in union, and for that matter you can also see a sperm floating in it. Also, we call it Shiv-Linga, don’t we? You can keep defending the religion, keep doing things which were designed for entirely different times, that doesn’t take you ahead. Times have changed and relevance too. Having a shivlanga in temple also means that Hinduism is a broad thinking religion, and shivlinga is a visual representation of male and female union, it’s a lesson in equality of sexes. If you keep being ignorant about it, you will never get the message right. It’s important that we start being more open as a society, respect women and provide them safety. Praying to women goddesses like Durga, Kali, Sarsavati and harassing women at home doesn’t go good together.

  14. Amit says

    Saurabh, it does not need one to be a rocket scientist to know about what Shiv-ling means but it does take some brains and some research, which an eager monkey like you obviously lacks.

      To (stupid) Kabeer Khan:-

      I find it amusing!

      However, it proves a very important point! Muslim keep their women supressed and under strictness, so much so that they cant befriend/marry males of other faiths. In Hindus (the ‘prjudiced’ list you have displayed with so much arrogance and pride, all married some celebrity. Celebrities, under the effect of their popularity and money ARE the CHOICE of many a females who enjoy liberty and freedom, much saught after by the Muslim girls. No wonder they marry these guys for their money or status. Moreover, many Muslims just marry and divorce. Rina Roy, Amrita Singh and others are examples. You already mentioned the divorcee of Amir Khan. Also, the mafia don Abu Salem’s wife is too a divorcee. So that proves yet another point that Muslim
      males are untruthful and less caring for their wifes whom they marry under the wish of their Allah.

      Also, it is common to see (may be numbers are less) to see Muslim girls married to Hindus. So please shed some of your ego and divert your stupid, biased mindset. Try and open up your females and consider them to be human beings.

      Peace!

    Ma’am:
    Vaishnavs and Shaivism were hostile to each other. the Vaishnas are more powerful in India. They control the English narrative. Both sects used to defame each other. What armchair experts like yourself and the horrendously clueless, in fact amusungly clueless, Wendy Doeineger (sp?) have swallowed and puked out is the Vaishnav defamation of Shaivism and Shaktism from the PUranic Era. the Vaishnav narrative is also the upper caste narrative, a justification for their divine rights.

      The decline of Hinduism, I think, started in the Puranic Era where innumerable incidents from various ‘kalpas’ were narrated and manuscript-ed to MAKE the follower of the various manifestations of the supreme ‘paramatman’. Both Shaiv and Vaishnav never shun away each other’s deity and neither did undermined. However, they put their own deity to an upper level. The fools (as there is never a dearth of them) and the selfish ‘priests’ for their ego and supremacy (and financial gains) got a ‘point’ to keep an upper hand over others, and that brought tension to the ‘common’ man who never studied any scriptures or authoritative discourses, and were dependent upon the priest class for their understanding of the religion. Later, with Manusmriti and its illogical interpretation, further decline was inevitable, giving rise to suppression of lower casts and declaring Brahmins as the super beings of all times.
