Well you must have heard that people waste water and milk by offering to Shiv Lingam. But this not wastage of water or milk there are reasons behind that. There is some history behind this.
As per Vidyeshwar Samhita of Shiva Puran, Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu had some controversary about the Universe. As the arguement continues, a big column of fire appears. Both Lord Vishnu and Lord Brahma are surprised and wanted to check the end the pillars. Lord Vishnu went down to check the end point while Lord Brahma went up. Crores of years passed but they didn’t find the end of the pillars. As Lord Brahma was travelling he saw a Ketki flower falling down. Lord Brahma asked the flower, where it was coming from, the flower replied that it has been falling for years now and was on the forehead of Lord Shiva at some point, however was in such a condition because of ego.
Lord Brahma made a plan and asked the flower to lie to Lord Vishnu that he was found the end point of the fire tower at the top. Both the flower and Lord Brahma lied to Lord Vishnu. Seeing this Lord Shiva appears to punish Lord Brahma and cuts his one head and also punishes the flower to take the side of Lord Brahma. Lord Shiva then gave the knowledge of the Fire Pillar to them.
