Amish Tripathi was set as a great author with his debut novel, The Immortals of Meluha, which became a best seller and reserved a spot on the top-seller chart within just a week of its launch. And eventually, the amazing work was followed by The Secret of the Nagas and The Oath of the Vayuputras, making the power packed Shiva Trilogy series. The trilogy received such wide reception and brought the author accolades like the inclusion in the Forbes India list of top 100 celebrities, thrice in a row (for the years 2012, 2013, 2014).

What’s more, in the history of Indian publishing, Shiva Trilogy series is currently the fastest selling book series!

shiva trilogy Empty Shiva Linga

All the different names for one God (Brahman) and different ways of offering worship and prayer!

Shiva Linga (auspicious symbol, in Sanskrit), made of stone etc. and depicting fire / flame (especially during yajna), was originally (long ago) introduced to carry out the Vedic worship (yajna) easily, quickly and at any time, without having to light the actual fire which would be difficult to keep burning during unfavorable conditions (such as in the open and in rain etc.) and which would be difficult to start easily and quickly (such as by rubbing the sticks).

Shiva linga, made of stone etc. (in the image of flame or fire of yajna), thus made the traditional / Vedic worship of God quickly and easily feasible and possible any time.

In addition, the libations were poured over the Shiva linga during post-Vedic worship, just like they used to be poured originally (during Vedic age) in the fire of original Vedic yajna (dedicated especially to Agni, one of the names for Brahman in the Veda).

Incidentally, Shiva (the name acquired over time for Brahman during post-Vedic era) represents essentially the Vedic deity Agni (one of the names for Brahman in the Veda).
