In Hinduism, Shivling represents Lord Shiva, the supreme of all deities. According to some schools of thought, Shivling establishes the trinity principle that represents Brahma the creator (the base), Vishnu the protector (the middle) and Shiva the destroyer (the apex) all in one idol. However, another school of thought believes that Linga represents the Brahmanda (the cosmic egg) and signifies that the creation is impacted by the union of Prakriti and Purusha, the male and the female powers of Nature. It also signifies Satya (Truth), Jnana (Knowledge) and Ananta (Infinity).
There are many superstitions, beliefs and rational practices are found in the society. One among all the beliefs is the idea of NOT to keep Shivling at home. Let’s investigate and know the rationale behind such thought.
The theory of Hinduism holds stringent disciplinary codes for women during the menstruation periods. One of the notions that preclude keeping Shivling at homes is the fear that menstruating women might desecrate purity and sanctity of the idol which might invite the wrath of Lord Shiva.
The Hinduism concept believes in Nitya Pujas or daily and regular worship to divine idols, especially Shivling. Therefore, some concepts state that since Shivling represents Shiva, the destroyer, it might invite the wrath of the supreme God, if daily rituals are not performed.
It is also considered that Lord Shiva is the god of perfection and will not bear any mistakes, lies, violating acts and other flaws at home. Due to this reason, it is feared that Shivling at home can give room for several ritual misconducts that might invite the Lord’s fury.
In the modern time, it is rather imprudent to believe something can desecrate divinity. However, as a mark of respect to the sanctity of the idol and Hinduism, people can be more careful while performing daily rituals at home. Further, it is recommended to avoid big idol (more than one foot) at home and advised to do the Pratishta or installation of the idol in one place and then perform the daily pujas diligently and sincerely on regular basis to get Lord Shiva’s mercy and blessings.

Handwriting Tells About Your Personality
Handwriting is not just an art to convey the information in a written format but it is an essential medium that reflects the personality of the writer. Yes, the handwriting experts do not only differentiate between the real and forged written piece but also convey a lot about human psychology. There is a strong relation between the moods of the writer with the handwriting. The science which establishes the relationship between human psychology and handwriting is known as Graphology.
With a piece of handwriting on a blank un-ruled sheet, you can try to analyze the person’s basic nature. Herein, we aim at providing simple tips to analyze an individual’s personality via his/her handwriting.
- Sloppiness in the writing
If the person writes in a sloppy manner, person tends to be smart with abilities to quickly link and correlate the ideas. However, if the writing style is well-composed, the person has efficient thinking process.
- Baseline of the sample
If the baseline of the writing sample on a blank sheet of paper is slanted upwards, the person is highly optimistic while if the baseline goes downwards, the person is pessimistic in nature. If the person has an ability to write in a straight line on an un-ruled sheet of paper, person is capable of analyzing the situations appropriately and maintains an impeccable balance between positivity and negativity of life.
- Pressure of the strokes
If the person tend to exert high pressure on the paper, it can be concluded that the person possess a high emotional quotient. While person writes with light strokes, the person is introvert in nature. However, if the person exerts an average pressure, he/she maintains a sound balance of calmness and the person nay possess good perception or learning abilities.
- Slant of the strokes
If the writing sample shows a right slant, it conveys that the writer has high level of confidence and is full of energy. If the slant is towards the left, the person tends to have visible unwillingness to write. The straight vertical slant tends to reflect the calmed composure of the person. However, this criterion is not applicable on the left-handed people.
- Size of the letters
The size of the letters tends to convey a lot. A person who writes short letters is thrifty and introvert in nature while on the other hand, if the person writes considerably big letters, the person tend to be extrovert.
Well! These were few basic criteria of the graphology over which the handwriting experts tend to guess and arrive at conclusions about the personality of a person. However, Graphology is quite pseudoscientific in nature as the conclusions tend to depend upon the perception of the handwriting expert. Despite of this demerit, this science conveys basic personality trait of a person accurately which could easily be correlated in daily life.
At a personal level, I feel that writing should be legible and somewhat presentable.

Never offer these five things to Lord Shiva
If Lord Shiva is your deity then maybe you must be aware what all can be offered to him so that he becomes happy and shower his blessings. But there are five things which cannot be offered to him.
According to Hindu culture Shivlinga should not be placed where it is not regularly worshiped with proper rituals because it will show disrespect to his Shiva and he may get angry. Anyways Lord Shiva is known for his innocence and also called Bholenath and because of this he may get pleased in no time but on the same hand we should not forget that he gets very angry if something wrong is done while worshiping him.
So we all know that Lord Shiva live a simple life on Kailash Mountain and if you want to please him then you should offer milk, Sandalwood, Dhatura, Bael leaves, Bhang and bhasma.
According to Shivpuran, a devotee should never offer below five things otherwise he or she will have to bear the dreaded consequences.
First: Ketaki Flowers
One day Lord Vishnu and Lord Brahma were fighting to prove their supremacy among the divine and when they were just to use the deadly weapons Lord Shiva appeared in the form of Jyotirlinga. He asked them to find the origin and end of him. Initially both of them tried to find but failed to do so and later Lord Brahma asked Ketaki flower to lie along with him. Upon their respective returns, Lord Shiva accepted his defeat. So Lord Brahma lied to him and Ketaki helped him and told that he has found the origin.
Lord Shiva go angry with this lie and cut one of Lord Brahma’s head and also diminished him from ever being worshiped as Lord. Lord Shiva also cursed Ketaki flower that it will never be used in worshiping Shivlinga.
Again it is clearly told in the Shivpurana that there was Asura called Jalandhar who was killed and burned to ashes by Lord Shiva. Jalandhar was blessed that he cannot be defeated by anyone even the Gods and this blessing were depended on his wife’s chastity. So Gods went to Shiva and asked for his and Lord Shiva decided to defeat and kill Jalandhar and in order to that he had to breach Jalandhar’s chastity and he did so. This made Tulsi angry and she banished Lord Shiva from being worshiped by her divine leaves.
Third: Coconut water
Coconut water cannot be offered to Lord Shiva but coconut can be offered because whatever is offered to Lord Shiva is considered as nirmalya and thus it is forbidden to consume it and consuming coconut water after being offered on deities is considered as mandatory to drink, it is thus not offered to Lord Shiva.
Turmeric is used for enhancing beauty of females and Shivlinga is a symbol of Lord Shiva so it should never be offered to Shivlinga.
Kumkum is related to married women and considered sacred because women apply to seek the long life of their spouse and worshiping his symbol with Kukum is not considered auspicious.
Who knows whether you will live tomorrow or not?
We should focus on today rather than thinking about future or past because no one knows whether we will be alive tomorrow or not and when we wake up we should first of all thank god for giving us one more day to enjoy the life.
So next time when you wake up in morning simply be thankful to god for the beautiful life as no one knows what will happen next day.
There was a interesting instance happened during Mahabharata when a Brahmin went to talk to yudhiṣṭhira and after reaching the palace he called for him but yudhiṣṭhira was busy in discussing things with other who were already sitting with him so he waited for him for some time and then again he called yudhiṣṭhira to listen to him and yudhiṣṭhira again asked for some more time from him to get free.
After some time again Brahmin asked yudhiṣṭhira whether he was free to talk to him but he was still busy with other people and asked him to wait.
The whole day passed and Brahmin knew that yudhiṣṭhira was very busy and he became sad that he was not able to take out time for him but to thought that he should give it a last try and politely asked yudhiṣṭhira to listen to his problem but unfortunately yudhiṣṭhira was still busy but this time yudhiṣṭhira told him that he will talk to him next day as he was not having any time. Brahmin became sad and started walking towards his home.
When he was on his way Bheema saw him and asked why he was sad so he told everything to him that he wanted to discuss his problem with his brother yudhiṣṭhira but he did not met as he was very busy and asked him to meet next day.
Bheema asked him to wait and asked the drummers to play all drums continuously and keep playing the drums.
Initially no one was much bothered with playing of drums but when they kept on playing the drums yudhiṣṭhira came out and asked what the matter was.
Beehma told him that drum was being played because yudhiṣṭhira has conquered death and knows when he will die so they are celebrating his victory. yudhiṣṭhira was very surprised after hearing this and asked Beehma why he said like that? Bheema replied to him that the Brahmin was waited whole day to discuss his matter with him but he asked him to come next day that means yudhiṣṭhira knew that he will definitely not die another day and was very much sure about it that is why he said so.
yudhiṣṭhira understood his mistake and apologized to Brahmin and listen to hi problem and solved his query.
So the zest of the story is that we do not now when death will come to us so do whatever you want to do today and do not leave things on tomorrow.

One day a person who was very sad came to meet Swami Vivekananda and when he met him he touched Swami Vivekananda’s feet and started crying then, he told his story to him that he was disheartened because he was well educated and worked very hard still he was not successful in his life so he asked why he was so unlucky and could not achieve success even after working so hard?
Swami Vivekananda understood his problem but did not say anything regarding his problem instead he asked to take his dog for a walk and promised him to answer his query after he completes this simple task.
This person was astonished by this behavior of Swamiji and took dog outside for a walk without saying anything. After sometime when he came back with dog his face was smiling but the dog looked bit tired.
Swamiji asked from him as to why the dog was so tired and he looked fresh as both of them covered the same distance while walking. The man told Swamiji that when he was going straight on his way but the dog was running here and there after other street dogs and covered ore distance as compared to him and due to this the dog got tired because he used wasted his energy after other dogs.
After listening to him Swamiji told him that this is the answer for all your queries because your goal is near to you and not far away but you start running after other people instead focusing on your goal and slowly you get away from your goal without even realizing it.
Same thing applies to us because most of the people focus on mistakes of other people and jealous of their success but do not try to enhance own knowledge. So we should always focus on our path and makes ourselves a better person so that we can make our lives much better and enjoy the success.
