Did you ever think that there would be any similarity between Shiva Lingam and a nuclear reactor? Shiva Lingams are found in Shiva temples. However, you’d have seen that the Shiva Lingams are poured in with water from the top in regular intervals. Why is that? Is there any scientific reason behind that? How does it connect to nuclear reactors? We’ll see that in this fascinating article.
SHIVA LINGAM AS A SOURCE OF ENERGY:
According to Vedic sciences, Shiva Lingam is a source of continuously radiating energy. However, it emanates vast amount of energy. In fact, this is one of the reasons that one would find a water vessel always at some height above the Lingam. In this way, water dropping in regular intervals can keep the Shiva Lingam cool. However, it also radiates heat in that process. So, cooling is a very important factor.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THAT WATER AFTER COOLING SHIVA LINGAM?
According to Vedic sciences, that water shouldn’t be used for any purpose after cooling the Lingam. As water falls on the Lingam, it becomes reactive. This is another reason sages in the past would always advise their disciples to not use that water. In fact, the same process applies to nuclear reactors. The waste water isn’t used anymore after the cooling process. However, if you notice, you would see that almost every nuclear power plant stands on the shore of some big water source.
SIMILARITY BETWEEN BARC AND LINGAM:
There comes another resemblance between Shiva Lingam and nuclear power plants. You will find most Lingams near a water source. Interestingly, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre does resemble a Shiva Lingam and it stands in the island city of Mumbai near to a water source.
MORE INTERESTING FACTS:
According to Vedic sciences, all the favourite substances of Shiva, e.g., Bilv Patra, Aakamand, Dhatura etc. are actually nuclear energy soakers.
According to statistics, more radiation are found from Jyotirlings besides nuclear reactors in India. This is really interesting.
Sage Vyasa, the author of the Mahabharata, interpreted Shiva as timeless and cause of vitality. His interpretation that he has no beginning or end explains the conservation of energy.
The shape of Lingam is an ellipsoid. An ellipsoid has also no beginning or end. This resembles the shape of the universe or “Brahmanda”. This is also called cosmic egg.
DIFFERENT INTERPRETATIONS OF THE LINGAM:
There are also interpretations explaining the three gods of Hinduism; Vishnu, Brahma, Maheshwara, on the whole representing the atomic structure. Vishnu is the proton having positive charge; Brahma, the electron with negative charge and Maheshwara, the neutron with zero charge. And together, they form the Shiva Linga.
There are a lot of stuff one can learn from Vedic Sciences. It’s just that one needs to look at the right place.
