Siddhic Wisdom
Shiva puja must be performed with linga. Linga worship constitute the very essen
ce of Shiva theology. The Shiva symbol linga is considered as formless. The Rasa
lingam has a place in the worship of Shiva.[1][2] Although mercury comes under c
lassification of a metal, it is in semi liquid form. Tamil Siddhas identified me
rcury as Shiva s metal (Shivadhatu). According to Siddha alchemy, mercury is the r
epresentation of male (Shiva) form and the chemical element sulfur associated in
the solidification process considered as the representation of female (Shakti o
r Gauri, consort of Shiva) form.[3] There are various Siddha processes formulate
d in the solidification of mercury. The processes are painful and may require se
veral hours and even days to complete. The resulting solidified mercury is enhan
ced with vital divine properties and it attain its very holy and beneficial effe
cts when it is solidified and carved as Shiva Lingam. It is believed that the wo
rship of Rasalingam or Parad Lingam promotes health and longevity.
