Badavilinga Temple is a wonderful temple in Hampi dedicated to Lord Shiva. Shiva is worshipped in the form of a Linga in this temple.The Badavilinga Temple in Hampi has the largest monolithic Shiva Linga. The Shiva Linga has a three eye mark drawn on it in line carving. The three eye mark depicts the three eyes of Lord Shiva.
The beautiful Linga is made of black stone. It has a height of 3 meters. It is believed that the temple has been in existence since the period of the Vijayanagara Empire. Devotees come here from far and near to worship the Shiva Linga.
The name Badavilinga is a combination of two words – Badva and Linga. In the local language Badva means poor and Linga represents Shiva. Legend has it that the Shiva Linga placed inside the temple was commissioned by a poverty-stricken peasant woman. Hence the temple came to be known as Badavilinga Temple.! The huge Shiva Linga of the Badavilinga Temple is situated inside a small stone chamber. There is a single opening in front of the chamber through which devotees can get in. An interesting thing to note about the design of the stone chamber is that it has no ceiling. During the day time, sunlight enters through the opening in the ceiling and floods the Shiva Linga with light.
The Shiva Linga has a large pedestal that is circular in shape. It is the yone pitha of the Shiva Linga. This circular pedestal draws into an outlet, also known as pranala. The pedestal of the Shiva Linga stands on a bed of water. This is due to the fact that the shrine always remains filled with water as a water channel flows through it.
According to devotees, the base of the Shiva Lingam is submerged in water as it depicts the arrival of the holy river Ganges on earth and its flow is controlled by Lord Shiva.
The Badavilinga Temple is a shrine that has not escaped the destruction that had befallen Hampi several centuries ago. However, the good part is that the Shiva Linga stands intact even today. The inner walls of the shrine, surrounding the Shiva Linga, have also escaped any severe damage. ✨👁🕉🌀🏯🙏

#mahaalmusa#maha_al_musa 💕 "I feel fortunate as an independent childbirth educator that I am not under the umbrella of any organisation or system. This enables me to remain in my own truth and integrity teaching sharing and offering the way of birth that I implicitly know and have experienced in my own birth and mothering journeys. I don't need to compromise my voice to fit into a prescribed script that at times does not reflect the true nature of birth from a mother - baby perspective. Too many rules and regulations puts birth workers who are under a system to have to comply to another's set of values and if they speak out can be either ostracised or penalised. This keeps birth in the neo cortex and this energy pervades birthing women's environments - birth is a rite of passage, an excavation into the depths of womanhood and when we dictate the parameters within which women and babies can birth we are actually not serving them nor being with woman without condition, we are projecting a mindset that says as long you as behave and adhere to our rules and regulations then you will be cared for, and if you step outside of the "zone" we have constructed and instructed then you will be demoralised.
This is not how the feminine births - she cannot be tamed and tainted by limitation - she needs to find her own rhythm and exploration that has no boundary in order to discover the depths of her own soul awakening with her baby. Again I am so happy that I am an independent thinker and birth educator to keep alive the fire of birth in how we can EmbodyBirth and other possibilities for women and babies"

A #sacredself session from this morning 😍 I love these #distanthealing#intuitiveguidance sessions as it’s an easy way to connect with souls worldwide. All i need is an intention. ⠀⠀
Ordering a Sacred Self Session is a beautiful way to support a specific intention in your life, commemorate a new dawning or chapter in your life. Or you may like to celebrate a high-holy occasion, such as your new business or creative project.⠀⠀
Maybe you are ready to step into the greatest version of yourself and need some encouragement and support?⠀🌸⠀
Your Sacred Self Session is a magical #sacred#ceremony .⠀⠀
I set an intention to connect with your higher self and ask what is most beneficial for you to receive at this time – for your highest potential. This incorporates your intention for the session.⠀⠀
I connect to your energy field and see what it has to communicate and what is most needing loving attention at this time. All souls are eternally connected in oneness and geographic distance is an illusion, so it makes no difference wherever we are in the world.⠀⠀

Still wondering why it took me so long to try this. I'm so thankful for Emily and all the amazing meals she prepared. Not only did she feed my hungry body but also my soul with so much inspiration. I hadn't felt this excited to be home so that I could cook healthy plant based meals for my family. It's not always easy but I will continue to put together meals that I believe to be clean and healthy for as long as I am here. I hope that when I take off next some of my eating habits will remain home.
There are only four questions of importance in life: What is #sacred , of what is the #spirit made, what is worth #living for, and what is worth #dying for. The answer to all of them is the same. Only #LOVE . I would rather live my life as if there is a #God and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't and die to find out there is. #Believe . Have #Faith . And You will know that He is the answer to all of our #Hopes and our #Fears . #SpirituaLoveXperience
