Marathon Blogger Prompt 3 - Monday



Monday comes knocking on my door every week after Sunday, asking me to start the new week with new thoughts.
It’s a vegetarian day, just dhal, rice and fried potatoes will do.
Some of my friends pray to lord Shiva and go on a fast for half a day, skipping lunch. A religious lady friend takes her bath early morning and makes her trip to the temple to pour the milk on Shiva linga. Every Monday, she listens to same Shiva story, his power of endurance and strength, his temper strong enough to destroy evil, and his passion for perfection, his tanda dance.
Every woman prays for a perfect man, she seeks Shiva’s blessing for a good husband.


Many believe that Linga represents the male organ but there are many other interpretations behind the linga.
“The experience of the Shiva linga in Yogic meditation is an experience of a pillar of light, energy, peace and eternity, expanding the mind, opening the inner eye and bringing deep peace and steadiness to the heart. From it radiate waves, currents, circles and whirlpools of Shakti spreading this grace, love and wisdom to all. To concentrate our awareness in the linga is one of the best ways of meditation, calming the mind and putting us in touch with our inner Being and Witness beyond all the agitation and sorrow of the world.”
