Shiva, Lord of the Holy Trinity

According to a legend, Brahma and Vishnu, two Deities of the Holy Trinity, had an argument over their supremacy.

Brahma being the Creator, declared himself to be more revered, while Vishnu, the Preserver, pronounced that he commanded more respect.

Just then a colossal ‘Lingam’, known as Jyotirlinga, blanketed in flames, appeared before them. Brahma and Vishnu were awestruck by its rapidly increasing size.

They forgot their quarrel and decided to determine its size.

Vishnu assumed the form of a boar and went to the netherworld, while Brahma as a swan flew to the skies.

But both failed to accomplish their self-assumed tasks.

Shiva appeared out of the ‘Lingam’ and stated that he was their progenitor and that henceforth he should be worshiped in his phallic form (Lingam), and not in his anthropomorphic form.

The legend also supports his appearance in ling form in many parts of India.

The worship of the ling form has led to many miracles and with devotees granted their wishes.

The Shiv Mandir in Manurewa (Auckland) has Acharya Kasha Nathji, a Vedic Pandit, who is well versed in Shiv Pooja.
