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.

The key to discovering and understanding personal dharma is the worship of Lord Ganesha, the God of memory, time and wisdom, who knows our past lives and can clarify our most perfect pattern, our right path in life.
