Did You Bathe Your Lingam in Milk Today?

Well, not yours, exactly. I meant Shiv’s!

Unfortunately, I didn’t have a lingam handy, but I did have this really beautiful murti of Mahadev that I bought from Bangkok last year. It goes without saying that the Lord of the Dance was invited to our house for a nice milk bath.

We visited the temple, too, and bathed an even bigger lingam. (These were taken from a couple of months ago, though, as I wasn’t able to take pictures last night.)

Everybody was beautiful, as usual, and the bhajans were extraordinary.

If you didn’t get to celebrate this year’s Maha Shivratri, there’s always next year. Mark your calendars!
