Shiva LIngam History Mythology: The Shiva Lingams come from the Narmada River in India, these stones are naturally formed through tumbling in the rive. Once a year the stone are gathered in a ceremony and then hand polished. According to the ancient Sanskrit Shiva Lingam which means ‘sign’ or ‘symbol’ is the symbolic sign of the Divine Creative Manifestation. The Shiva Lingam shape is a manifested representation of the Shiva, the Lord of Creation according to Indian beliefs, while the markings on the Shiva Lingam are the symbol of Yoni the feminine energy that creates and fertilizes the on going balance in the universe. It is believed that all Shiva Lingams are connected and that the user can join the grid in order to tap into the universal information. There are theorizes that due to the small area that these come from and the iron oxide content in the Shiva Lingams that the Narmada rive had a meteorite come down and impact millions of years ago.
