Ravana from the ramayana wanted to get "atma linga" from shiva so ravana did

great penances but that is just vaishnava story. in truth atma means Self, and

so atma linga is actually jyoti linga.....linga of light within your heart. it

is the light of god within everyone.

Dear sevaks please accept my respectful pranams!

 

Lord Sri Shiva's atma is OM and is always present in the Linga that Matha Shri

Parvathi worships. So in Atma Linga HIS form is undescribable. This linga is

the most auspicious of all lingas. One of the atma linga was gifted to

Ravaneshwar and Matha Gauri ordered Shri Ganeshji to stop Ravana from reaching

Lanka with this Atma Linga.

Dear Shri JC ananda please accept adiyen's respectful pranams!

 

It is better to give stories than give thoughts of vedas for people to

understand. Not everyone has the power to digest the self and Shiva everywhere.

It is Shiva praying Shiva etc.

 

However I see some venom in your email regarding "Vaishnava Story". This story

is from a puran written by yogi's much much higher than you and me. They

realised that it is mortal fools who have created sects between people for

their own benefit. However one thing please keep in mind, to insult Shriman

Narayana, is to insult Sri Shiva, and to insult Sri Shiva is to insult Sri

Narayana. So their leelas stand to gain more weight than Veda thatvas. Saying

the Word "RAM" makes Lord Shiva move than saying his panchakshri mantra.

 

So the shiva in me saying in emails, as krishna, or doing arpanam is HE doing

it. So respect that than to say "Vaishnava Story". Just because wearing

Rudra-ka-aaksh, applying holy ash does not make one a devotee of Shiva, LIVE

like HIM to become Shiva.

 

SubhamDinamAstu!

I have no venom, just objective thought on this. Firstly I am not a vaishnava

so I do not worship narayana/vishnu any more than I worship allah although

people say they are all the same. Secondly I do not accept or follow any

scripture that upholds caste/varna system or sexism which is why I reject many

scriptures. I am vira shaivite. I dont think any yogi is better than anyone

if he says women are dogs and sudras are slaves.

thank you dear friend. you are the first person to say such kind words towards

me. It saddens me deeply in my heart that so many people, including now even

westerners who have begun to dabble in hinduism; support this whole notion of

"new age" hinduism in which all the scriptures of all sects are considered one

religion and the varnashrama and sexism are ok.

I dont know to many vaishnavas or shaivites in traditional orthodox paramparas

that believe there is a "trinity" of brahma, vishnu, and shiva. there is a

notion in the west particularly that hinduism is one unified religion and that

osho and vivekananda and the theosophy society are amongst its greatest

exponents.

it pains me, that this caste ideology and refusal to dig deeper exists amongst the people.
