The Ashen Shivalingam

The Ashen Shivalingam

The Ashen Shivalingam

The famous Indian aniconic lingam is an emblem of the cosmic generative prowess. No wonder it is referred to as the Shivalinga, the Lord Shiva being the presiding deity over cosmic destruction and regeneration. The Shivalinga that you see on this page has been sculpted out of hard granite, of an earthy ashen colour. It is a smooth cylindrical mass, highly differentiated in its aniconism from the lifelike iconography of the Hindoo pantheon.

The Shivalingam emerges from an aperture surrounded by a close-lipped discoid structure. It is the yoni, the symbol of Devi Shakti, as the lingam is the symbol of Lord Shiva. It opens out at one point in the arc, the mouth jutting out frontally. In this sculpture, this section of the Shivalingam is especially long. Traditionally, the Shivalingam has been worshipped with milk-baths, so this part of the yoni is where the thick white fluid pours forth after having travelled down the lingam.

The yoni-lingam ensemble is poised on a miniature pedestal in keeping with traditional Indian iconography. The same is engraved with fine pristine lines that give the impression of lotus petals. Engravings of a similar nature are to be found on the main lingam. The same comprises of typical Shaivite motif of three rows of vibhuti (sacred ash) and a third instrument of vision.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
Thank you for your wonderful service and amazing book selection. We are long time customers and have never been disappointed by your great store. Thank you and we will continue to shop at your store
