word Shivling does not mean Shiv’s Ling. This word is misunderstood
because it is compared with Hindi language. Shiv Lingam is a Sanskrit
word which means Shiv’s Sign / Symbol (ling).
If we see lingam it contains two parts
Lingam and yoni. The picture of Mount Kailash resembles the lingam and
yoni. So we can say that shivlings are smaller version of Mount Kailash
and in Shivlings we are actually worshiping Mount Kailash.
Mount Kailash is important because 4
rivers Brahmputra, Indus, Sutlej and Karnali ( Tributary of Ganges)
, originate from near it. Mount Kailash was some kind of Power source
(nuclear) what we are actually worshipping in Shivlings is as Source
of Power ( nuclear). This can be true because we pour water on the shivlings.
We pour water because water is a coolant and nuclear power requires
coolant. Thus our act of pouring water on Shivling is representation
that we are cooling the nuclear plant because if we don’t use
coolant nuclear plant could explode causing destruction (as they say
it happens when Lord Shiv is God of Destruction). Thus to cool Lord
Shiv we pour water so that they don’t get hot and explode.
The way we put tilak on the shiv lingam
is 3 lines. This resembles the lines on the face of Mount Kailash. Thus
we could say actually we are worshipping Mount Kailash in Shivlings.
There is Raksha Taal near Mount Kailash
where bathing is prohibited. It is said that Ravana took bath in that
lake and now no one’s take bath because who ever baths in the
water of Raksha taal they get disfigured/ become Rakshas. It is said
that Ravana, the King of Lanka wanted to take Mount Kailash to Lanka.
He picked up Mount Kailash and left for Lanka but could not reach Lanka.
Why a King wanted to take Mount when he had everything in world. It
may be because Kailash was a nuclear power plant which Ravana wanted
to take to Lanka. Because after touching radioactive source Ravana carried
nuclear residue which was left in Lake Raksha Taal after he bathed in
it. Now whoever bathes in radioactive water will get disfigured due
to ill effects of radiation. Could it be that Rakshas Taal has radioactive
remains of the power plant? If the waters of Rakshas Taal test positive
for radiation (we don’t know this yet) then we can say Mount Kailash
is nuclear power plant.
Another practice is that before worshiping
Shree Yantra of Goddess Laxmi we should touch it to Shivlingam. Yantra
means Machine. Every machine requires some power source to function.
Could it we be implying that we should touch a machine (yantra) to a
power source (shivling) before we make use of the machine. This act
leaves us to think that that Shivling is source of power.
Like the cylinder of the shiv lingam,
the nuclear reactor too needs a regular supply of water to cool it down
as it heats up during the process of generating energy. Notice the coils
around the main reactor? Those are the structures built to dispose of
the water- just like the coils around the lingam.
While it has been universally assumed
that the 12 Jyotirlings are objects of mere esoteric, spiritual homage,
there are overwhelming indications that the Shivling symbolizes atomic
reactors of immemorial past. There are innumerable and irresistible
points of identity between the two.
Consider the shape. The shape of a Shivling
is identical to modern atomic reactors.
A Shivling is traditionally rooted in
standing water below the ground level. Over the emblem also hangs a
pitcher which constantly drips water over the Shivling. The holy Ganga
is also depicted as flowing over the head of Lord Shiva. All these indicate
condensation devices (including a crescent moon on the forehead). Why
are so many condensation devices associated with Shivling (and Shiva),
if it does not symbolizes an energy producing facility?
It is only in a Shiv temple that the
water flowing from the lingam is not consumed as holy water. The water
from a lingam is not drunk for precisely the same reason as the water
from a nuclear reactor is not potable- it is charged water. Why are
shiv temples always found near a source of water, say a river or lake?
That is because shiv lingams- just like modern day reactors need water
for cooling the core. Do you know that no one is allowed to cross the
spout of a shiv lingam during pradakshina- circumambulation of the lingam
during worship? People have to turn back as soon as they approach the
spout because the spout represents irradiated water.
Devotees of Shiva complete only 3/4th
round of the Shivling. They must turn back from the water outlet. They
are not supposed to cross that waste water channel. Priest’s say
“the water coming out of Shivling is “impure” and
that one must not touch it at any cost’. Hence the waste water
emerging from the Shivling depicted radioactive waste and hence traditionally
should not be crossed.
A scientific neutralizer also used to
be provided. Namely when Gharund is placed at the water outlet and the
waste water channeled through it, devotees may freely cross the waste
water channel to complete the round. This clearly points to the fact
that ancient Hindus had devised a scientific gadget by which they could
neutralize the atomic waste.
We put bael leaves (bilipatra) on a
lingam. These leaves are believed to have a capability to absorb radioactive
radiation and hence protect vulnerable lives around a lingam.
ancient nuclear power houses :
On a closer analysis of the term Jyotirling,
we find that the Sanskrit term ‘Jyoti’ means light and ‘ling’
means symbol. Therefore the term Jyotirling can also be translated as
‘Symbol of light’.
Each of the twelve Jyotirling is situated
near a water body. It again symbolizes condensation process.
In a study carried out, ground water
in Varanasi was found to have a much higher radioactive Uranium content
than permissible limit. What is the reason for such a high Uranium content
in Varanasi? We know that the Kashi Vishvanath Jyotirling is situated
in Varanasi. If we have reliable methods of evaluating radioactive contents
dating back 5000-7000 years, we may have the twelve sites checked.
and Radioactivity :
is nature's perfect radioactivity delivery system, Danielle, ideally
suited to slipping nuclear contaminants into places where they can mess
you up good. Let's review its many insidious advantages.
a food. While an external dusting of radionuclides isn't healthy,
for efficient long-term irradiation of vulnerable organs there's
no substitute for actually ingesting the stuff.
fast. Not to knock potatoes and chicken, but growing these items
can take weeks or months. With milk, the fallout simply drifts
over the pasture and lands on the grass, which the cows then eat.
The radioactive particles are deposited in the cows' milk, the
farmers milk the cows, and in a day or two the contaminated product
shows up in the dairy case.
it's processed quickly, milk makes effective use of contaminants
that would otherwise rapidly decay. A byproduct of uranium fission
is the radioactive isotope iodine-131. Iodine is critical to functioning
of the thyroid gland, and any iodine-131 consumed will be concentrated
there. However, iodine-131 has a half-life of just eight days.
The speed of dairying eliminates this impediment.
also does a good job of delivering other radioactive contaminants,
such as cesium-134 and cesium-137. Although not important for
human health, radioactive cesium mimics potassium, which we do
need, and is readily absorbed by the body. Another uranium breakdown
product is strontium-90, which is especially hazardous to children,
since it can be incorporated into growing bones. In contrast to
radioactive iodine, strontium-90 has a half-life of about 29 years.
definition, granite is an igneous rock with mica, amphibole, at least
20% quartz and up to 65% alkali feldspar by volume. Granite
differs from granodiorite in that at least 35% of the feldspar
in granite is alkali feldspar as opposed to plagioclase; it is the potassium
feldspar that gives many types of granite a distinctive pink color.
Granite is a natural source of radiation,
like most natural stones. However, some granites have been reported
to have higher radioactivity thereby raising some concerns about their
Potassium-40 is a radioactive isotope
of weak emission, and a constituent of alkali feldspar, which in turn
is a common component of granitic rocks, more abundant in alkali feldspar
granite and syenites. Naturally, a geiger counter should register this
granites contain around 10 to 20 parts per million (ppm) of uranium.
By contrast, more mafic rocks such as tonalite, gabbro or diorite
have 1 to 5 ppm uranium, limestone’s and sedimentary rocks
usually have equally low amounts. Many large granite plutons are the
sources for palaeo channel-hosted or roll front uranium ore deposits,
where the uranium washes into the sediments from the granite uplands
and associated, often highly radioactive, pegmatites. Cellars and basements
sunk into soils over granite can become a trap for radon gas, which
is formed by the decay of uranium. Radon gas poses significant health
concerns, and is the number two cause of lung cancer.
Thorium occurs in all granites as well.
Conway granite has been noted for its relatively high thorium concentration
of 56 (±6) PPM.
Granite stone as well as the chair you
are sitting on, the air you are breathing every day and the soil you
are standing on. Basically everything in nature has some level or radioactivity.
However, the radioactivity of granite (or your chair) is not so high
that it could produce any harm.
The radioactivity of all the materials
around us comes from tiny quantities of mostly uranium that is inside
of almost any natural material. Sedimentary rocks like sandstone for
example contain about one to four micrograms of uranium per gram of
rock. Igneous rocks (that is basalt or granite) can contain between
0.5 to four micrograms of uranium per gram of rock. However, usual sand
like beach sand for instance contains about three micrograms of uranium
per gram of sand and the average soil contains one to three micrograms
of uranium per gram.
radioactivity of granite and marble is therefore not higher than the
radioactivity of any other natural object around.
