12. Pseudoreligious cult of communist leader magically transformed into Lingam.
Hail God, the One who destroys fake gods and mind’s idols.
Om Nama Shivaya!

This has become the weirdest mystery of Revolution: Why did a true Shivalingam appear at the place of a communist pseudo-lingam? Whose who think that this question is as Ukrainians do say “sucked from the finger” or “it’s just a coincidence”, should answer first to another mystery: why the State Emblem of Ukraine is Trishula, trident, the main attribute of Lord Shiva, the Mahadeva of all the yogis, and why does the State Flag of Ukraine bear the same colors as a flag of one of Tibetan Buddhist schools.

Some people want to put here a new monument. This position comes from ignorance. Why putting anything instead of the symbol of the God manifested as the infinite pillar of fire going through all the Universes?

Om! Tryambakam yajamahe

God’s with us!
