1. Who am I ?
“Who I am?” is the question which opens the door to know the almighty God? There are very fewer people in the world who really want to know the answer to “who I am?” You must understand that you are not a body. This body is a tool, an instrument or hardware only. The body has no energy in itself at all. This is the soul which energizes the body and enlightens the body. All we know that when the soul leaves the body, the body begins to decay and ultimately destroyed. This is the soul which makes you healthy and keep you free from all the decays.
In fact “I” means the soul resides in the body made up of five elements. This “I” is a spark of almighty God or Lord Shiva.
When you have a sense of this body this “I” is a body or you, but when you realize that you are not a body but a soul you immediately awaken in the eternal God and understand that you are a soul an element of supreme soul. Knowing you are a soul and not a body, removes all your doubts about the God, world and yourself. Everything becomes crystal clear before you. God is reflecting everywhere and in you too as shown in the image below:
2. What is the meaning of Shiva?
Shiva is eternal Bhrama or lord. Shiva is your soul. Shiva is the supreme soul. Shiva is eternal cosmic energy. Shiva is eternal. There is no end and beginning of Shiva. Only transformations are there. As there is no end and beginning of Shiva same there is no end and beginning of Bhramand. This Bhramand is Shiva. It doesn’t matter whether you call the God as Jesus, Allah, Nanak, Sai or anyone else. All names are the name of almighty God. Names are many as many religions but the energy is only one that is God or Shiva.
3. What is universe (“Bhramanda”)?
The whole universe (“bhramanda”) is a place (“Pinda”), the symbolization of almighty God. We all are living inside the universe (Bhramanda) or we can say we live inside the God. The whole universe (Bhramanda) is a manifestation of almighty God. God is infinite and eternal. Similarly, the universe (bhramanda) is eternal. Transformations are there in the universe (Bhramanda) time to time due to the wish of nature. There is no end and beginning of this universe (bhramanda). This is from forever and this will remain forever.
4. What is the meaning of shiva linga?
Shiva linga is a symbolic representation of root (“mool”) of universe (bhramanda), shiva, God, or supreme energy. Shiva linga is also from the beginning and remain forever. Shiv linga can change their size, shape, and color but will remain forever.
5. Why should we offer water to shiva linga?
We offer water to a root of a plant to give life to the plant, to get fruit from the plant and to keep the plant green and healthy. The plant may die, become lifeless or become yellow if you stop to give water to the plant. The plant will not give you fruits if you will not offer water to the root of the plant.
“Shiva Linga is a root of this whole universe (“Bhramanda”) and so, you too.” -Mamta Rajshree
Similarly, Shiva linga is a root (“mool”) of this whole universe (“Bhramanda”), God or supreme energy. Shiva linga is a physical symbol of God. Shiva linga is a Yantra of Shiva. It is a root of you too as you are also a light of an almighty God or Shiva.

As this is true, a healthy mind makes your body healthy; same this is also true that pure soul makes your body and mind pure. All the demerits and vices like greed, anger, proud, attachments reflect in the form of physical and mental disorders. Offering water to Shiva linga makes you free from all the vices and consequently free you from all the diseases and disorders.
