Linga Sharira is the name of a faction in Seventh that believes that life only has one purpose. The purpose for the essence of life, usually referred to as the soul, is to transcend into a divine being. What the purpose for the divine is, is not knowable as it is called Divine Wisdom.

How exactly this philosophy came to be is unknown. This is because the philosophy and the legacy of Linga Sharira can only be found in a book which does not mention any origin, other than Linga Sharira herself, and it does not offer any proof. The book was found a long time ago by a sage named Minos Tempel when he was inheriting a house which had been passed down in many generations. The book was found, according to the tale, in a book case inside the house. It is said that the book had never been seen in that book case before so at first the book of Linga Sharira was seen as a hoax but none the less it was mysterious.

The book eventually ended up in the Lyceum of Spire Top, which had since beginning of time served as housing for different orders of monks. The monks studied the book closely and after centuries the monks became so attached to the book that it no longer was just about interest but that the book represented and embodied their lives. The Lyceum of Spire Top became more and more popular which drew many people around the lands to it. They all wanted to study it of course and much because rumors often travel faster than the truth. Linga Sharira had gotten interpreted in more ways than it had genuine followers and soon the book not only was a way of life but also rules of life. Numerous books were written on which rules should govern everything from safe keeping of the book to how, when and why Linga Sharira should be worshiped.

Still today the book of Linga Sharira is housed in the Lyceum of Spire Top where followers of Linga Sharira are visiting every day of the years. Followers of Linga Sharira hold the belief that any one that is alive must have the purpose of wanting to become Divine. The most common wisdom held is that one should learn and never stop learning up until the point where you transcend into a divine being, then being able to achieve divine wisdom.
