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
Rasaling Mahaling Shiv Shakti Niketanam
Linga Shivalayam Prokta Sidhdhidam Sarv Dehinaam
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.
Vidhyay Rasalingyo Bhaktiyukt Samarpayet
Jagattrilinganam Poojaphalam Vaapoonyaa
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.
Mudram Koti Gunam Swarn, Swarnaat Koti Gunam Maat
Maate Koti Gunam Vallom, Vallatkoti Gunam Rasah,
Saatparataram Lingan Na Bhuto Na Bhavishyati
The fruits of a parad shivalinga are billions of times multiples of the fruits of a stone shivalinga.
According to Rasa Martand, darshan and puja of this divine linga nullifies the malificence of killing
thousands of Brahmins and hundreds of cows. Lord Shankara has Himself said that, he likes the person,
who on having a darshan of this shivalinga anticipates the darshan of the twelve jyotirlingas.
