    The Ark of the Covenant and the Holy Grail both have previous stories in Judiasm and Christianity. Does anyone out there know if there's a prior story concerning the Sankara Stones in Hinduism? Or was the stone story thought up by Lucas, Spielberg, etc?

    Here's some info,

    The village shaman refers to the Sankara stone as "Shiva linga". In traditional Hinduism, the linga is a tall, cylindrical stone representative of a phallus, often set inside a circle representing the yoni, or female organ. Together, the two symbols stand for the dualistic sexual energy of the god Shiva.

    Cool huh ??? :D
