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 stronger you are in your nature, the more you can bring through your real nature; the more you can enjoy the bliss of your true being. It is well worth working for. It is well worth craving for.
—Gurudeva
