Shiva Linga is symbolic expression of all the deities and represents NirguNa Brahman (formelss Brahman)


At the time, when this incident of mystical Shiva linga had occurred and after which Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu had stopped quarrelling and started glorifying Lord Shiva, Lord Shiva appeared before them and said,

"I am very pleased with both of you, Both of " O Vishnu! You are the creator, Lord Shiva. This made Lord Shiva extremely pleased and he the preserver as well as the destroyer of this world. I am the supreme you, though having distinct identities have actually manifested from my body-Brahma from my left side and Vishnu from my right." almighty and distinct from all three of you-Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh. Lord Vishnu expressed his undiluted devotion towards Lord Shiva.

This made Lord Shiva extremely pleased and he said."O Vishnu! You are the creator, the preserver as well as the destroyer of this world. I am the supreme almighty and distinct from all three of you-Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh."

Linga is the personification of the Almighty God. The term Linga means fusion and the Shivalinga are said to be the symbolical expression of all the deities. 

(Linga Purana 17.2.1)
