Shiva Lingam is symbolic of the power of Shiva, the Lord of Creation, the masculine energy. It is Lingam that creates life on earth. The Lingam contains that essence of the entire cosmos. This power can be transmuted into pure creative energy, that is what we call the awakening of the Kundalini. The Shiva Lingam is one of the most sacred icons of the ancients in India. It aids the fusion of spirit and matter.
