"Once you empty yourself, Devi has no choice but to be with you. And if Devi is with you, I also have no choice." - Sadhguru

Bhairavi Sadhana is an opportunity to bring forth devotion from within.

The sadhana starts during early Uttarayana, when the sun’s run shifts to the northern hemisphere, a time conducive for spiritual receptivity.

Initiation is on the same day for both ladies and gents. However, for ladies, the sadhana culminates on Thaipusam (the full moon day in the lunar month of Thai) and for gents on Thai Amavasya (the new moon day in the lunar month of Thai).

Culmination for Ladies: 18 Jan 2022

Culmination for Gents: 31 Jan 2022

Why Bhairavi Sadhana?

Whatever one’s aspirations may be - health, wealth, knowledge or transcendence - Devi is the Ultimate Giver of all that and more.

  • Intense process to enhance one’s receptivity

Frequently Asked Questions


This is my first time doing the sadhana and it is a very beautiful experience.I feel closer to Devi, I don't know what that exactly means, but somehow it’s different now. We have a yantra at home, but after doing the sadhana, it feels totally different.
