can be can be explained in 3 ways 1. Spiritual and Scientific, 2. History
of Lunette (Stele) and, 3. Possibilities and Facts.
1. Spiritual and Scientific :
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.
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
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.
is Rakshashtal near Mount Kailash where bathing is prohibited. It is
said that Ravan took bath in that lake and now no one’s take bath
because who ever baths in the water of Rakshashtal they get disfigured/
become Rakshash. It is said that Ravan, 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 Ravan wanted to take to Lanka. Because after touching
radioactive source Ravan carried nuclear residue which was left in Lake
Rakshashtal after he bathed in it. Now whoever bathes in radioactive
water will get disfigured due to ill effects of radiation. Could it
be that Rakshashtal has radioactive remains of the power plant? If the
waters of Rakshashtal 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.
the cylinder of the Shivlingam, 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
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.
Shivlingam is traditionally rooted in standing water below the ground
level. Over the emblem also hangs a pitcher which constantly drips water
over the Shivlingam. The holy Ganga is also depicted as flowing over
the head of Lord Shiv. All these indicate condensation devices (including
a crescent moon on the forehead). Why are so many condensation devices
associated with Shivlingam (and Shiv), 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.
of Shiv 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.
History of Lunette (Stele) :
Stele with Decree of Nectanebo
I (lunette of the top 1/3 of stele)
lunette spatial region in the upper portion of stelas, became common
for stelas as a prelude to a stele's topic. [clarification needed] Its
major use was from ancient Egypt in all the various categories of stelas:
funerary, Victory stelas, autobiographical, temple, votive, etc.
lunettes are most common from ancient Egyptian stelas, as not only is
the topic of the stele presented, but honorific gods, presenters, individuals,
etc. are previewed, and often with Egyptian hieroglyphic statements.
main body of the stele is then presented below, often separated with
a horizontal line (register), but not always. In Egyptian stelas, many
have horizontal lines of hieroglyphs; often the lunette will contain
shorter vertical statements in hieroglyphs, sometimes just names of
the individuals portrayed, hieroglyphs in front, or behind the individual.
Personal votive stele
Dynasty Egypt, post Amarna :
From the post-Amarna period onwards, many personal stelas made exhortations
to the ancient Egyptian deities; stelas to specific gods "were
erected to intervene personally with the local god, often to seek justice
or offer an explanation for things that had gone wrong in their lives.
The deceased is shown kneeling, holding up his hands in prayer, ....."
Some of the personal votive stelas had ears (hieroglyphs), to represent
the gods listening to the supplicant.
Amarna Period was an era of Egyptian history during the later half of
the Eighteenth Dynasty when the royal residence of the pharaoh and his
queen was shifted to Akhetaten ('Horizon of the Aten') in what is now
Amarna. It was marked by the reign of Amenhotep IV, who changed his
name to Akhenaten (1353–1336 BC) in order to reflect the
dramatic change of Egypt's polytheistic religion into one where the
sun disc Aten was worshipped over all other gods. The Egyptian pantheon
was restored under Akhenaten's successor, Tutankhamun.

3. Possibilities and Facts :
mention of Shivlingam is found in Purans and not in Veds. Purans
were written between 7th and 5th century BC. During the attack
of Asurs, the descendents of Vashisht migrated to India and
it is this time when Purans were written and Buddhism, Jainism,
zoroastrianism, Judaism and Christianity were formed officially
as a religion but the base is same which is of Sumerians who
are Aryans this is the reason why we find many similarities
is all different the religions including Shia Islam.

into India Click
original Shivlingam looks like above it was later that the base
was added for water to flow and offerings to be kept. Originally
the Lingam and Base are not joint they both are seperate but
now a days in temples the Lingam and Base both are joint made
of single stone.
the Starting Aryans were Sun Worshippers and Chaldeans worshipped
Snakes, Tortoise, Bull (Nandi), etc. due to matrimonial alliances
Snake is kept on Shivlingam and Tortoise and Bull is kept infront
of Shivlingam in temples.
Egyptian dynasty was Aryan origin having matrimonial alliance
with Chaldeans and hence we can see Sun, Snakes, etc. in Egyptian

Hammurabi code of laws :
Hammurabi code of laws, a collection of 282 rules is written on
a stele which shape looks like a Lingam. It is possible that when
Aryans migrated to India between 7th and 5th B.C. due to Asurs
(Assyrian) attack they did not carve a specific shape on stele
because along with Aryans, Chaldean, etc. also migrated to India
and as Aryan Warriors (Kshatriyas / Rajputs) had Matrimonial Alliance
with Chaldean they worshipped few common gods hence a stele without
any image or writing became a Shivlingam for all faiths.

important thing kept on Shivlingam is Jaladhari through which
drop by drop water falls on Shivlingam. As a matter of fact it
was Varahamihir who had built Jaladhari not for religious purpose
but for time calculation.
drop by drop water falls he would calculate time but people kept
his Jaladhari on Shivlingam.
(c. 505 – c. 587) in Gupta Period, also called Varah or
Mihir, was an ancient Indian astrologer, astronomer, and polymath
who lived in Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh, India). He was born at Kayatha,
in the Avanti region, roughly corresponding to modern-day Malwa
(part of Madhya Pradesh, India), to Adityadas. According to one
of his own works, he was educated at Kapitthak.
most notable works were the Brihat Samhita, an encyclopedic work
on architecture, temples, planetary motions, eclipses, timekeeping,
astrology, seasons, cloud formation, rainfall, agriculture, mathematics,
gemology, perfumes and many other topics.

Laurence Austine Waddell has explained.
in Statue Menhir :
neolithic Sardinian menhir (c. 2500 BC) recovered at Laconi and
assigned to the Abealzu-Filigosa culture
Abealzu-Filigosa culture was a Copper Age culture of Sardinia
(2700-2400 BC). It takes its name from the locality of Abealzu,
near Osilo, and Filigosa, near Macomer.
populations of this culture lived mainly in the Sassarese area
and other parts of central-southern Sardinia. They still used
obsidian to produce tools and weapons but copper objects, such
as the daggers depicted in the Statue menhir, were becoming common.
Lead and silver were also smelted. Their economy was focused on
pastoralism and agriculture. They worshipped warrior ancestors
and created megalithic monuments.
pottery of Abealzu show some similarities with those of the Rinaldone
and Gaudo culture from the Italian peninsula.
this period date the second phase of construction of the massive
megalithic temple of Monte d'Accoddi.

statues consist of a vertical slab or pillar with a stylised design
of a human figure cut into it, sometimes with hints of clothing
or weapons visible.

Oil Stone Grinder similar to Shivlingam :
we can see that Argan oil grider in Morocco is Similar to Shivlingam.
history of the oil of argan has often been confused with the history
of Morocco, becoming this the emblem of the lands of the country.
Argan oil has passed through the hands of various peoples. One
of the first uses that were given to the oil of Argan was to feed
the oil lamps; the Phoenicians used it as fuel thanks to the high
luminosity that gives off this oil. Later, the Berber people
in Morocco discovered their cosmetic and nutritional virtues and
began to incorporate it into their habits of life.
are claims that Argan oil was sold by merchants in the Mediterranean
region around 12th century B.C. this claim can or cannot be true
but we know that Argan oil is connected with Phoenicians (Panchals)
who are Aryans.
is possible that the Argan oil grinder was to in making Somras
which is mentioned in Veds and Purans which was later worshipped
as Shivlingam or it is also possible that Shivlingam was later
used as Argan oil grinder.
