FOR MAKING LINGA
purana lists down elaborately the different mateiral with which the
Siva lingas are made and the distinct type of blessings they confer.
It is for the devotee to make the object of worship according to his
need and taste more than his inner elegance and refinement. Now look
at the composition of each and know the merit it confers.
It is made of three ingredients -- four parts of sandal paste, three
parts of kumkumam
and two parts of musk. Size determines the
quantity and cost to be put in, but the ratio remains
constant. If worship is made to that sandal paste
linga, one gets blessed with Sivasayujyamukti - merging
of his jivatma into the Paramatma. Then the
cycle of birth after death comes to dead end.
