Term: Shiva Lingam

DEFINITION:

Sanskrit, "Phallus of the God Shiva." It is a central object of veneration in a Hindu Temple, even as the focus of "adoration" by female worshippers in a magical invoking of the God Force to achieve pregnancy. Note, however, there is no suggestion here that the child will be other than human. A particular note should be made: the Lingam is represented as rising out of a Yonic base. Thus, the Lingam (male sex organ) does not penetrate the Yoni (the Female sex organ) but emerges from the Yoni as from a matrix. Thus, the Yoni gives birth to the Lingam as the Great Goddess is mother to all life.
