The Shiva Lingam comes from the sacred Narmada River, one of India's seven most holiest sites. A form of Jasper, they are gathered one day a year and hand polished. They contain the soul-seed within which lies the essence of the entire cosmos. A symbol of worship for Shiva, it embodies masculine energy, dynamic expression, and knowledge. The markings depict feminine energy, and together signify merging of male and female energy, nurturing the second chakra and reminding us that balance creates a harmonious state of being.
