Ice Shivling Made Out of Thin Air at Mankameshwar Paradeshwar Mahadev Temple in Valetva Village Near Ahmedabad

A three-foot Shivling made of thin air at Mankameshwar Paradeshwar Mahadev Temple in Valetva Village Near Ahmedabad is attracting both devotees and science enthusiasts. The Shivling has a diameter of 40 cm and can withstand an open environment as long as it is a soundproof environment. The temple is being seen as a replica of Amarnath Shivling by devotees. Times of India reports

It is easy to fall, but to climb up again takes time and effort – Swami Chinmayananda

A serious scare is always worth more to a teenager than any amount of advice.
It is easy to fall, but to climb up again takes time and effort.
