Most of Hinduism is based on the ancient texts of the Ramayana, Mahabharata and the Puranas. All these widely mention the Hindu trinity, Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva as the most important gods. It is also believed that every other god is a holy incarnation of either of these three forms. In Hinduism, certain symbols hold a very important place. Almost each god is associated with a symbol each, which is considered to be very sacred. The symbol of Lord Shiva may be very famous and well known to be a Shivalinga. Did you know that Lord Vishnu too has a symbol dedicated to him? It is called the Shaligram.
