Explaining how the energy structure of the Dhyanalinga is the basis of the consecrated space, Sadhguru delves into the reasons why its consolidated energies will live far beyond the lifespan of the bricks and stones in the ashram.

Questioner: Sadhguru, what will become of Isha and this consecrated space after you?

Sadhguru: We are not just building buildings of brick and stone here. We could actually remove the Dhyanalinga [granite form] and the energy form would still be there. We only keep the stone because people need something visual to focus on – otherwise, their eyes will wander around. Isha and the Dhyanalinga are not about bricks and stones. The brick and mud will vanish at some point, but the energy structure will remain. In terms of energy, there is no such thing as “after Sadhguru” here. It will be the same, because the energy structure is way bigger and much more consolidated than the stones that you see. The energy structure is the basis. The stones are only added as a decoration.

Editor’s Note: June 24 at the Isha Yoga Center will witness the 18th anniversary of the Dhyanalinga Consecration. Join us for the live audio streaming of the chants that will be offered to Dhyanalinga.
