Length of the chain 64cm, receptacle dimensions: 764cm. Lingayatism is a religious movement founded in the twelfth century by vishwaguru basavanna in southern India, in reaction to the caste system's excesses, considering that individuals should be classified according to their practices and not their birth.For lingayatism, the true pariah is the one who kills living beings, feeds on dirt: those who are truly superior are those who wish the good of all living beings; it is not a question of a title inherited by mere birth. It is a monotheistic movement, worshiper of shiva, who is represented for prayers in a form of portable linga, or ishtalinga. The shiva lingam is a stone called gods in the Indian tradition. The main deposits of these minerals are in India (Narmada River). Its brown-beige to red color and its ovoid shape represent the energies of yin and yang.
It is in the river, thanks to the currents of water, that the shiva lingam stones take their unique form. All items in the shop are visible at. Malassi market - stand 92. (Saturday and Sunday from 10h to 18h and Monday from 10h to 15h).
