Hinduism - What Is A Kshanika Linga?

 


Kshanika Linga ("ephemeral")  - A linga is a pillar-shaped item that represents the deity Shiva.

A kshanika linga is built using whatever materials are available, whether dirt, sand, grain, butch, or any other thing that may be piled and sculpted, for instant devotion.

Although God is everywhere, this utilization of contemporary pictures illustrates a fundamental component of Hindu religious life: many people operate better when they have a specific target for their religious attention.

As a result, God is willing to enter even the most insignificant things if they were made with him (or her) in mind.
