The Shivanga Sadhana for Gents is a powerful 42-day vrata (period of sadhana). Offered by Sadhguru, this sadhana enhances one's receptivity to the energies of Dhyanalinga and allows one to explore deeper levels of experience in body, mind, and energy.
The sadhana is an opportunity to bring forth devotion from within. Shivanga literally means “a limb of Shiva”, and the Shivanga Sadhana is an opportunity to bring our connection with the source of creation into our awareness. The sadhana is also an opportunity to make a pilgrimage to the sacred Velliangiri Mountains and be initiated into Shiva Namaskar, a powerful practice.
Become a Limb of Shiva
वेलियांगिरी के बारे में
The Velliangiri Mountains are also known as Thenkailayam or the Kailash of the South – a space where Shiva, the Adiyogi 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, lakhs of devotees make the pilgrimage to the Velliangiri's sacred Seventh Hill, a space of tremendous power and energy.
Sadhguru: What is the difference between travel, a journey and a pilgrimage? People move from one place to another for a variety of reasons. There are explorers who are always looking for virgin land that they want to put their footprint on. They want to prove something. There are travelers who are curious to see everything, so they travel. There are tourists who just go to relax. There are other kinds of tourists who just go to escape from their work or family. But a pilgrim is not going for any of these purposes. A pilgrimage is not a conquest, it is a surrender. It is a way of getting yourself out of the way. If you do not budge, it is a way of wearing yourself out. A process of destroying all that is limited and compulsive and arriving to a boundless state of consciousness.
