Do you know why we offer milk/water to Shivling?

Offering milk or water on Shivling is considered to be the strongest ritual in Hindu religion but the gen next is all about knowing the reasons, why? So let me tell you few reasons for its justfications:

– One of the major reasons behind offering water/milk to Shivling is that Shivling releases strong radiations wherever they are established.
Shiva Lingam is considered to be an atom model. There is radiation from Lingam as it is made out of a type of granite stone. Granite is a source of radiation and reported to have higher radio activity thereby raising some concerns about their safety. Granite is said to have formed as lava or molten rock cooled and solidified over thousands or even millions of years, contain naturally occurring radioactive elements like radium, uranium and thorium. Perhaps this is the reason that ancient Hindu sages advised their disciples not to touch water that is poured down on the Lingam. The sages were aware that there will be radiation fall-out if some accidents occur and that is the reason that Shiva Temples were built close to the vicinity of sea, ponds, rivers, tanks or wells.

– An examination of the image of Shiva Lingam in the context of Bohr model, would demonstrate the puzzling truth that Brahma has created the world. The behaviour of Proton, Electron, Neutron and Energy are well demonstrated by Shiva Lingam.
Vishnu signifies Proton with positive electrical charge.
Mahesha signifies Neutron with no electrical charge.
Brahma signifies Electron with negative electrical charge.
– When water is poured on Shivling, which has the purification light of Shiva, the water element inside our body gets purified resulting in upliftment of mind, body and soul.
