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.

Swami Avdheshananda Thoughts

When you develop a craving to know the Truth, the mountains and caves start attracting you. Meditation gives energy, bliss, peace and vitality. When you close your eyes and sit in a proper posture, energy will grow and flow at a very rapid speed. Just close your eyes and observe it. There is nothing more powerful than dhyana. Dhyana gives birth to you, it introduces you to your own Self. Material world cannot provide the inner peace that one seeks, as there is no end to one’s desires. This is where spirituality comes into play. By adopting moderation in everything that we desire, positive changes can be effected for the benefit of mankind.
