Initiation Into Mahashivratri Shivanga Sadhana Will Be Offered On
Jan 12, Thursday, 2017
The Shivanga Sadhana for Gents is a powerful 42-day vrata (period of sadhana). Offered by Sadhguru, this sadhana enhances receptivity to the energies of Dhyanalinga, and allows one to explore deeper levels of experience in body, mind, and energy. The sadhana is also an opportunity to make a pilgrimage to the sacred Velliangiri Mountain, and be initiated into Shiva Namaskar, a powerful practice. Sadhana starts on every full moon day and culminates on the Shivarathri of the next month in the Isha Yoga Center.
The Shivanga Sadhana for Ladies happens once a year, during the 21 days leading up to Thaipoosam Poornami (the full moon day in the lunar month of Thai) with a different set of practices and discipline suitable for women. This special sadhana will open one up to receive the Grace of Linga Bhairavi Devi. The initiation starts 21 days prior to Thaipoosam, and the closing will take place at Linga Bhairavi on Thaipoosam Poornami.
The Velliangiri Mountains are also known as Thenkailayam or South Kailash – a space where the Adiyogi Shiva himself spent some time. Over the ages, many siddhas and seers have enshrined their energies and Grace in these mountains, which can be accessed and imbibed even today. Every year, thousands of seekers make the pilgrimage to the Velliangiri’s sacred Seventh Hill, a space of tremendous power and energy.
“There are really no words to describe the experience…Shiva is with us. It has really demolished the ego and changed the way we experience life”
“Something has changed in the physical, mental, and emotional levels, and something is happening on the energy level which I can’t describe. It’s been very supportive and uplifting, and though I have no clue what it is all about, I am enjoying it”
“Shivanga is a journey from being a part of creation, to being a part of the source of creation or the Creator. Every life around us has the same source but the biggest advantage, challenge or possibility that human beings have in their lives is that we are capable of realizing it. We are capable of making it into a conscious process. None of the other creatures can realize that they are made of this stuff. If you light the fire of devotion in your heart, you will not live here as a piece of earth, but as a limb or a part of Shiva.”
