    Om namo Shivaya! I recently discovered the holy Shiva Lingam. It was a revolution, a positive revelation, in my spirit. I am very grateful Shri Shivaji for opening my spirit.

  5. Sesame king says:

    I can bet you they have Shiva lingas on the moon but they wont show us.
    Om nama shivaya!

  6. Kiran says:

    Why is it that we can never get clear pictures with these stories. Surely this Linga is still around in a museum or somewhere?

  7. VAIDEESWARAN.M.S says:

    It is really nice to see Shiva Lingam an ancient one.Its worship is age old proving the continuity up to now.

  8. sridhara says:

    It is very touching to get such info. These excavation may change the course of our history texts

  9. Saba says:

    We should google and find out about Linga’s where about

  10. K.R.Sundaresan says:

    It is no wonder Shiv Lingas are found in Harappa and Mohechadaro since they are ancient Aryan settlements. Since Hinduism is very old religion you may find many such discoveries around the many archaeological sites in the world.

  11. A.H.Srinivas says:

    Good information to be noted. Efforts of archaeologists must be appreciated

  12. syam says:

    Do Harappan’s worship shiva?

  13. Mukul Agarwal says:

    Can you give the source book from where this picture is taken?

  14. subbarayulu.k says:

    OM NAMASIVAYA

  15. Pyar says:

    But, since 1940 what happened to these Shiv Lingas? The present archaeologists should go back to archives to research and tell us of its existance in the present times.

  16. MUDIUM SAIPRASAD says:

    AUM NAMAH SHIVAYA AUM

  17. Anand says:

    For decades the D&R groups have been trying to show that Harappa was distinct from Vdeic lifestyle.So such info will always be hidden by TPTB.

  18. palakkadu says:

    INTERESTING QUESTION; Harappan was a huge city. It is not clear if that it was part of a greater kingdom of similar cities. The other difficulty is that various gods from nar-by civilisations of closest past had the same artifacts than Lord Siva.Eg, the moon, the horns, the sitting posture, the mountain, the trishu, the animals etc..
    It can be also possible that this so called linga is a property/land limit pole or city limit or even a weight for transactions or a scale to mesure loads, etc. All this depends on what they find around it.
    to remember : in all mesopotamia, persia, russia, india, japan, almost every where in the bronze age, there was some cult using erected stone-like lingas. Lingas are signs of light, power, generation, energy and universe.

    Shiva’s linga, 2500 BC Egypt. http://en.wikipedia….ire-abousir.jpg

    He was called “Shu” by the time the Vedic Rajas had settled and spread their agri-culture on the Nile River.

    Best friend of “Ra”, they were very ancient Egyptian gods. Shiva and Rama.

    Here’s a clue: somewhere in one of these links is a very famous queen of the Ramayana.
    Here’s another: these kings were the first to build temples and worship a god named “Seker/Sokar.”

    That queen had sons that were the first to worship Indra.

    Indra is Sakra.

  23. catty says:

    if they have pasupathi symbol (shiva) in their seal, why dont they have worshipped siva.

  24. Shiv Kumar says:

    Aum Shivaya Namah… Many original and real secrets were abducted and stolen minimum 500 to 1000 years ago by English people and Arabians from India; the most powerful and real secrets were from South India, as Tamilnadu. That secrets are still with them because if that be revealed then the whole world would be shaken.. they are using small secrets to develop their scientific methods and procedures.. this is the hint.. Aum..

  25. farang says:

    I have seen exact same image, on wall painting, from ancient Egypt, in a boat, and the so-called “expert Egyptologists” label it a “ben-Ben” stone.

    Again, I say to you with all due respect: Egypt was once part oof the vast Bharatta empire, called “Mudriya”, and the so-called “Meidum pyramid” started by “Huni” was in actuality a Shiva’s Lingum, and “Huni” is Ra Huni in hieroglyph cartouche, with image of Lingum: He IS Ar Juna. He IS Arjuna.

    As FARANG says the word RA is also inscribed in some of the Japanese Temples.Most prominent is in Asakasua Temple,where evenr on the xceiglings one can find this word RA. Then as Sastry says on
    *Sakara* another reader HAS EMPHASISED on this word. Indus Valley is now in Pakistan near the Sind Province,called MOHAN JO DARO.sOME SAYS mOHAN MEANS the Dead and I wouldn’t know why this name,as I am noit much expert.But the archeoloigists in SIND{PAkistan]
    may be able to define>I can try to find hereafter

    wonderful news

  38. HM.Venkatanarasiah says:

    Sanathana Dharma is the oldest religion of this universe:It is not surprising that Shiva Lingas are found in many places of this world:Hindu gods & goddesses are found all over the place.Now there is awareness of the ancient architectural pieces & are identified & crdit given to the Hindu religion

  39. Dr Nimish R Shelat MD FACS FCPS FICOG MBBS says:

    Shiva linga found in Harappan era gives evidence of Worship even in those times 5000 years ago.It speaks volumes of Indian Hindu religion’s ancient origin . It also proves that Hinduism was practised by these harappans .Research should be further carried out to show whether this linga was man made, or swayabhu linga which manifested itself out of God Shivas blessings.

    Aum Namah Shivaya

  41. Mr Rajnikant A Chande says:

    With regard to comments(above) from: K R Sundersan and H M Venkatanarasiah, I suggest they should read a book by Stephen Knapp titled: “PROOF OF VEDIC CULTURE’S GLOBAL EXISTENCE”. Stephen has done in-depth research into all of the major Vedic texts of India. His large collection of books & articles can be accessed at:

    http://www.stephen-knapp.com/

    His latest eBook: “The Aryan Invasion Theory: The Final Nail in its coffin” is also listed on his above website and it’s worth reading. I have read a few of his books and I must admit the research, evidence and the sheer breath of in depth knowledge and the practice of Vedic religion is most extraordinary……Stephen Knapp was born & brought up in the USA in a Christian family, but over the last 40 years, he has been practising Sanatan Dharma.

  42. Jagadish Prasad Manna says:

    Shiva lingas, found over the earth is the icon of the nirakar conscient energy, the Supreme Soul and our God Father (we the souls are his children), proves that He descends in this mother earth to uplift us from the Hell (state of earth made by human beings so called as developments without any development of Humanity) to the Heavenly state of this earth, periodically.

    I bow to the great yogi……

    Good effort
