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.

Observe those who are steadfast. You will learn from them. Observe those who are not, and they, too, will teach you. They will teach what you should not do.
