Adiyogi - The Source of Yoga

Sadhguru Sannidhi, Bengaluru

"Adiyogi is here to liberate you from disease, discomfort, and poverty – above all, from the very process of life and death." —Sadhguru

Over 15,000 years ago, predating all religion, Adiyogi, the first Yogi, transmitted the science of Yoga to his seven disciples, the Saptarishis. He expounded 112 ways through which human beings can transcend their limitations and reach their ultimate potential. Adiyogi’s offerings are tools for individual transformation, as individual transformation is the only way to transform the world. His fundamental message is that “in is the only way out” for human wellbeing and liberation. On 15 January 2023, the iconic face of “Adiyogi – the Source of Yoga” was unveiled by the Honourable Chief Minister of Karnataka. Adiyogi stands 112 feet tall, representing the 112 ways he offered for one to attain wellbeing and realize their ultimate nature.

Installed near the Adiyogi is the Yogeshwar Linga, which was consecrated by Sadhguru, as a manifestation of five of the major chakras in the human system. Adiyogi, with the presence of the Yogeshwar Linga, has become a living entity.

Design and Architecture

Adiyogi was designed to be an iconic presence that would serve as a reminder to orient every human being towards their liberation.

With a deep understanding of how the geometry of form can bring forth profound transformation, Sadhguru designed the face of Adiyogi to exude three aspects – exuberance, stillness and intoxication. Owing to its precise geometry, Sadhguru says, the image of Adiyogi imprints itself in the mind of anyone who pays attention to the form for even a minute, inspiring them to pursue their ultimate wellbeing.
