標題: 濕婆林加, 藝術家姓名: Vandana Mengane

早在西元前2世紀,在無數考古遺址中就發現了濕婆林加。 在梵語中,Linga的意思是"標記"或符號,指向推論。因此,濕婆林加是濕婆神的象徵:這個標誌讓人想起無形的全能主-濕婆神。

印度的古代聖賢和先知規定,必須透過奉獻的能量,將林加安置在寺廟中。這將有助於人們專注並引導其心靈集中,進行冥想體驗。 在林加的傳說中,林加也代表了諦、智、究竟智慧與無限性。

在這件藝術品中,藝術家還描繪了濕婆林加一旁的南迪牛和蛇。  南迪是濕婆的主要坐騎之一,偶爾在雕塑中被描繪成一個牛頭矮人。Nandi是永恆等待的象徵,因為等待被認為是吠陀文化中最大的美德。一個知道如何簡單地坐下來等待的人,自然懂得冥想的。

蛇是第一個知道這個星球上發生的任何變化的生物。哪怕是最輕微的變動,因為蛇的整個身體緊貼地面,這造就了牠對大地的敏瑞度。此外,人們認為神秘主義是感知的某個維度,蛇被賦予了這種能力。因此,如果一個人進入冥想,那麼第一個被吸引到他的生物就是蛇。這可能是為什麼我們總是能在洞穴中的濕婆林加雕像附近看到蛇的雕刻的原因之一。

Title: Shiva Linga, Artist name: Vandana Mengane

Shiva Linga's have been found in countless archeological sites from as early as the 2nd Century BCE.

In Sanskrit, Linga means a "mark" or a symbol, which points to an inference. Thus, the Shiva Linga is a symbol of Lord Shiva: a mark that reminds of the Omnipotent Lord, which is formless.

The ancient sages and seers of India prescribed Linga to be installed in the temples by consecrating energy that would help people focus their attention and induce concentration of the mind for meditative experience. In Puranas Linga also signifies Satya, Jnana, and Ananta—Truth, Knowledge, and Infinity.

In this artwork the artist also depicts Nandi and Snake around Shiva Linga.

Nandi is one of Shiva’s chief attendants and occasionally is depicted in sculpture as a bull-headed dwarf figure. Nandi is a symbolism of eternal waiting because waiting is considered the greatest virtue in Vedic culture. One who knows how to simply sit, and wait is naturally meditative.

Snake is the first creature which will know even the slightest fundamental change that happens on this planet, because his whole body is in touch with the ground. Also, it is considered that Mysticism is a certain dimension of perception, and the snake has come endowed with that capability. Thus, if one becomes very meditative, the first creature which is drawn towards that is a snake. This could be one of the reasons why snakes are always sculpted around Linga in the caves.
