The linga and yoni are ancient symbols in Hinduism, rich in spiritual and cosmic significance. Representing the divine masculine and feminine energies, they embody the union of opposites, the creative forces of the universe, and the divine source from which all life originates.
The linga, depicted here as a cylindrical stone, is a symbol of the divine masculine energy and represents Lord Shiva in his formless aspect. The word "linga" itself means "sign" or "symbol." It signifies the unmanifested, transcendent aspect of God, which is beyond attributes and form.
The yoni is the base or receptacle that supports the linga. It symbolizes the divine feminine energy, representing the cosmic womb from which all life emerges. The word "yoni" translates to "source" or "origin" and signifies the primordial source of creation.
The linga and yoni together signify the cosmic balance and the interplay of opposing forces. Their union represents the harmony of creation and the divine dance of Shiva and Shakti, the masculine and feminine principles. It underscores the idea that the universe is sustained through the harmonious interdependence of these polar energies.
The Linga is also decorated with the Om symbol. The Om symbol representing a sacred sound, syllable, mantra and invocation in Hinduism. It is variously said to be the essence of the supreme Absolute, consciousness or the cosmic world.
The pedestal of the Linga is formed from a lotus leaf motif. The lotus flower represents purity, compassion and the giving of great joy to all.
The perfect traditional in appearance piece to bring serenity and timeless style to you garden, patio or sacred space.
