Karpur Linga

Karpur Linga is instantaneously prepared using Camphor by a devotee to worship Shiva. It is prepared when devotee does not have access to a stone lingam for worship. It must be noted that in some regions deep pure white colored lingas are also known as Karpur Lingas.

A devotee uses camphor to give shape to the linga for worship. The devotee then offers prayers to this form that he/she has created.

After prayers the camphor is removed and used for puja purposes.

Such freedom of worship helps a devotee in performing prayers in any region and in any situation.  

Apart from camphor, mud, clay and flowers are also used to prepare instant Lingas for Shiva worship.
