Siva Linga Symbology

A devotee writes to Gurudeva about his dismay over finding how some authors describe the Siva Linga as a phallic symbol. Gurudeva describes how the interpretation all depends upon where the consciousness of the author is, whether he sees Siva, or something else. Gurudeva also reminds the questioner of the importance of excercising discrimination and even caution in choosing what to read.

All Hindus have guardian devas who live on the astral plane and guide, guard and protect their lives. The great Mahadevas in the temple that the devotees frequent send their deva ambassadors into the homes to live with the devotees.
