Banalinga is the self-existent mark or sign of God because it is discovered in nature and not carved or crafted by human hands. This Shivling is basically of white or light pale color with some impressions (holy marking) on it. As the Banalinga Shivling is the most powerful shivling thus it should be worshiped daily.

Origin and Significance of BanalingamThe Banalinga is basically made of human bones which have been fossilized over thousands of years been inside the river ganga. The Hindus for time immemorial ( thousands of years) have been offering the ashes or the Asthies of their deceased relatives after last rites ( antim sanskar) in River Ganges. The banalingams are usually transparent, white or pale coloured, as the human bones are white in color. Whenever a light is thrown on the banalingam from back side these banalingams glow with very high intensity. When you test this banalingam you will get the composition of calcium carbonate (CaCO3) which is the main ingredient of human bones. After many thousand years, the fossils of human bones (asthis) have taken the shape of the Shivling and it is called Banalinga or Banalingam Shivling. Banalingam Shivling represents Sivah - The One who is Eternally Pure. In Him can never be any contamination of the imperfection of Tamas & Rajas. Non-apprehension of Reality is Tamas and misapprehensions of Reality constitute the Rajas. In Reality Itself there can be neither of them. He is Brahman & He is Siva, so the Upanishad declares of the Absolute Oneness, which is Vishnu.
As Lord Shiva is the supreme destroyer of evil & shows his body covered with ashes (bhasma, vibhuti). Thus all the evils & negative energy leaves the place where lord shiva is present. He wears the garland of human skulls thats why the Banalingam Shivling is his favorite Shivling to Him and is immensely powerful.
