The axis of the rotating earth or the entire infinite universe with the atmosphere is the linga. Therefore its beginning and end are also the chessboard of ordinary people, unknown even to the deities, eternal or neti-neti. The orbit of the planets of the solar system is the snake wrapped around Shiva’s body.

Why Shivling is out in temples
Being the deity of the common man, he should always be accessible or accessible to everyone, his place has been fixed considering that. He is the only deity who gives darshan to the devotees from afar in the sanctum sanctorum. Children, old and young, whoever goes by touching them, hugging or falling on their feet, they can become light and hear their pain. If you do not have anything to offer, then you can also be made happy by offering water, leaves, flowers or Anjali.
Why does water rise
The first step of creation or creation is to sow, to irrigate or to pour. Summer heat and water moisture are needed simultaneously for sowing seeds. Therefore, not only offering water to Adidev Shiva, the first idol or first creation of life, it becomes more important to do Abhishek continuously. It is the law of nature that the destruction of the creation situation happens continuously, over and over again. The flowing water of Abhishek is a symbol of the moving, living world.
Why is Shani called Shivaputra
The Sanskrit word Shani means life or water and Ashni means sky lightning or fire. In the Vedic mantra of worship of Shani, there is actually a prayer for compatibility of all the three states of water in gas, liquid and solid form. Being water in its original form, Shani has been personified in the Puranas as Shivputra or Shivdas. That is why it is said that if both Shiva and Shani are happy, then they are happy and if they are angry, they make them miserable. But Shani is the son of Surya. The Sun being the basis of life, the origin of the state of creation, the cause of rain, has been considered as the form of Shiva or Vishnu himself in the Puranas. It is instructed that the worship of Shiva or Vishnu is incomplete without Surya worship. There is no contradiction in this matter as the Sun itself is a water-giving nutrient and Saturn itself being a water-form.
