Fourteen years ago, the Dhyanalinga was consecrated by Sadhguru after years of prana pratishtha. Since then, this powerful energy space has touched countless people from diverse cultures, faiths and walks of life, offering the possibility of ultimate liberation to all.
This June 23rd, the Isha Yoga Center will witness the anniversary of the Dhyanalinga Consecration and, for the first time, a session of Interfaith Deliberations on the “Universality of Religions” where eminent speakers from various faiths and traditions will address the gathering.
The event is open to all, and is a wonderful opportunity to experience the Dhyanalinga. The celebrations will also be live webcast at Isha Live.
Dhyanalinga Consecration Day Celebrations
The consecration celebrations will begin at 6:00am within the Dhyanalinga dome. Vedic, Buddhist, Christian, Muslim, Hindu and Gurubani chants will be sung throughout the day. Two Nada Aradhanas – offerings of sound – will be offered by specially invited guests. At 6:45pm, the celebrations will culminate with Guru Pooja.
Devotees can make milk offerings at the Dhyanalinga from 6:00am to 1:00pm and water offerings from 1:00pm to 8:00pm.
