Shiva is one of the most popular gods of the Hindu trinity. The cult of Shiva is called Shaivism. It has been in vogue in Nepal, since the early centuries of the Christaian era. Iconography points out that the Shiva cult appeared in Nepal as lingam (phallus) worship. Some scholars are of the opinion that phallic worship was probably borrowed from some aboriginal tribes as their god was the phallus of Shisna devata. Shiva-linga is identified as cosmic Purusha.
Shiva is the lord of destruction, and is generally represented in three forms: i) Lingam ii) Anthropomorphic form and iii) Natraj or Nasa deva (Lord of artistic skill)
Shiva's familiar representation is lingam or phallus. His act of destruction is allied to creation. He is a symbol of fertility and his role is also emphasized as a creator. Lingam is cylindrical in shape, standing upright on its narrow end and rounded at the top. It stands on a yoni, a flat rimmed chalice called Jalheri, which is symbolic Yoni has a groove all round it to drain off the water poured on lingam during worship. Lingam and Yoni are symbolic of male and female generative organs and they represent the supreme creative principle.
In Nepal, the most famous lingam is of Pashupati (pashu, beast, pati, lord) or lord of animals. Pashupati is the presiding deity of Nepal. The temple of Pashupatinath is the holiest temple of Nepal. Pashupati is the gentle aspect of Shiva
