Shiva Lingas

The linga or lingam (Sanskrit for "symbol") is the symbol of the god Shiva and the form in which he is most commonly worshipped. The stylized phallic symbol is the main object of worship in Shaivite temples and homes throughout India and the world. The linga nearly always rests on pedestal of a stylized yoni, or female sex organ. Together, the linga and yoni represent the power of creative energy and fertility. See Hindu Things: Shiva Linga for more information on this ritual object.
