Why do we offer water on Shivling? Is there any scientific reason or just tradition?

 We all know that there is a tradition of water Abhishek on Shivling. All the people who go for the darshan of Shivling, carry some water with them and offer it on the Shivling. This water is not stored nor distributed among the devotees but is discharged into the river. The question is why water is offered on Shivling. Is there any scientific reason behind this or just a meaningless tradition that is being followed. Let's find out:


If you pay a little attention, you will remember that the worship systems of Shivling were established in India about 5000 years ago. Lord Shri Ram had established Shivling in Rameshwaram. By placing a tripund on the Shivling, it was declared that Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh are contained in the three Shivling. The blessings of Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh are obtained on the consecration of Shivling. Recently, when it came to stop the tradition of Jal Abhishek due to the erosion of Shivling in Jyotirling Omkareshwar, even then Shankaracharya had said that the tradition of Abhishek should not be stopped due to the erosion of the stone.

 The design of Bhabha Atomic Research Center is also similar to that of Shivling


Virendra Chunara, a graduate from Gujarat University, says that if you study the radio activity map of India, you will find that apart from the nuclear reactor, the highest radiation is found in all the Jyotirlinga places located in India. This is the reason why water is continuously flowed on the Shivling so that the nuclear reactors of nature remain calm.

 Bilva leaves, akmad, dhatura, hibiscus etc. offered on Shivling are all nuclear energy absorbing substances. The water offered on the Shivling mixes with the flowing water of the river and takes the form of medicine. The design of Bhabha Atomic Research Center is also similar to that of Shivling.
