CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-2.

MANTRAM-4.  { "Other  means  of  Self-realisation." }

Discussion - 7. "linga  .... to  be  continued "

"Linga"  means,  in  fact,  a  symbol  or  sign  at  the  sight  of  which  an  awakened  intelligence  can  deduce  certain  reliable  truths.

Seeing  some  smoke  rising  from  the  valleys  of  a  distant  hill  any  sensible  man  will  deduce  that  there  is  fire.

Here  smoke  is  the  "linga"    from  which  we  have  come  to  the  knowledge  of  the  fire.

Similarly,  "Siva-linga-( m )"  means  a  particular  sign  at  the  sight  of  which  we  deduce  and  infer  the  presence  of  the  mighty  "Lord  of  Kailasa-(m)."
