Parad Shivlinga represents Lord Mahamritunjay Shiva – the Winner of Death.
A parad shivalinga bestows divine blessings on mankind. It symbolizes the semen of Lord Shankara. This linga
stands for the unity of a divine being with Maya, and the meeting of Shiva with Parvati. It brings wealth,
honor, domestic happiness and combats the sins of previous births. According to the shastras, King Ravana of
Lanka was a Ras sidhha yogi. He pleased Lord Shiva by offering puja to a parad shivalinga. Yoginishadh states
रसलिंगं महालिंगं शिव शक्ति निकेतनम्
लिंगं शिवालयं प्राक्तं सिध्धिधं सर्व देहीनाम्
rasaliṁgaṁ mahāliṁgaṁ śiva śakti niketanam
liṁgaṁ śivālayaṁ prāktaṁ sidhdhidhaṁ sarva dehīnām
In other words, raaslinga is the only mahalinga and is the power of Shiva. One gets total proficiency on
accomplishing it. Rash Ratna Sammuchaya states the following.
विद्याय रसलिंगयो भक्तियुक्त समर्पयेत
जगत्त्रिलिंगानां पूजाफलम् वापुन्यात्
vidyāya rasaliṁgayo bhaktiyukta samarpayeta
jagattriliṁgānāṁ pūjāphalam vāpunyāt
In other words, he who worships the shivalinga with a pure heart obtains the fruits of triloka. All his
sins get washed away. Only a fortunate person can attain this knowledge. He has mastery, grace and is
blessed by a precious and rare shivlinga.
मुद्रं कोटी गुण स्वर्णम्, स्वर्णात् कोटी गुण्ं मात्
माते कोटी गुणं वलों, वल्लात्कोटी गुणं रसः
सात्परतरं लिंगन न भूतो न भविष्यति
mudraṁ koṭī guṇa svarṇam, svarṇāt koṭī guṇṁ māt
māte koṭī guṇaṁ valoṁ, vallātkoṭī guṇaṁ rasaḥ
sātparataraṁ liṁgana na bhūto na bhaviṣyati
The fruits of a parad shivalinga are billions of times multiples of the fruits of a stone shivalinga.
