Holy stone in Kaaba

Reader comment on item: Churches in Saudi Arabia?

Submitted by Dr Basavaraj Modi (India), Aug 21, 2015 at 20:09

The shape of the stone & Vikramaaditya's inscrptions in Kaaba corroborate that the Holy stone in Kaaba is " Makkeshvara Linga". Many thousands years ago Shaivism was practicised in far & wide places of world. Lord Shiva, after whom this religion is identified, was the first Yogi of the world.It is said he used to meditate on hemispherical object or stone, resembling the hemispherical universe. This meditation was for stabiling & purifying the mind. It is very unfirtunate that Shiva,though a historical great personality, was clubbed with trinity of Hindu mythology- Brahma & Vishnu!
