Shivling is the symbol of Lord Shiva. It is said that if a Shivling is worshipped with proper rituals, Lord Shiva can be pleased and fulfils people’s desires. Not only that, worshipping a Shivling also impresses all other gods as well.

According to Shivpuran, a few things should never be used or offered on a Shivling. Worshipping the Shivling in a wrong way can be dangerous. Let us find out what are these in the next few slides.

Haldi (Turmeric)

Haldi is offered on every Hindu God. However, it should never be offered on a Shivling. This is because haldi is used as an ingredient to enhance the beauty of females and Shivling is a form of Lord Shiva.
Tulsi (Basil)

Also, it has to be remembered that the first and foremost thing that one needs to keep in mind before performing any puja is that the devotee should take a bath. While worshipping the Shivling, it has be kept in mind to never put tulsi (basil) leaves on it. Always offer only Bael leaves.
Never offer coconut water as an offering to the Shivling, although you can offer coconuts.
Kewda and Champa

It is believed that the Shivling and the idol of Lord Shiva should only be offered white flowers because Lord Shiva is said to be especially fond of flowers that are white in colour. Remember to never offer kewda and champa flowers as they are said to be cursed by Lord Shiva.
It is believed that the devotees should never consume whatever they have offered to the Shivling as it brings bad omen, leads to loss of good luck and money and can also cause illness.
