The lingam is a phallic object that represents the Lord Shiva in Shaivism. In Hinduism, lingams are used in puja (worship) rituals and to invoke Lord Shiva's blessings. In this practice, the lingam represents Lord Shiva's phallus and its presence in an altar represents his ability to create life through sexual union.
The stone is shaped like an egg and polished for symbolic reasons. The egg represents both the female principle—as it usually stands for fertility, birth, and nurturing—and the male principle of creation (with its hard-shelled exterior protecting a soft interior)
Bringing the Balance of Yin and Yang Energy
Shiva Lingam can balance our emotional, mental and physical being by bringing balance to yin and yang energy in our aura. It's like a reset button on the body.
