Bhumi Pooja of the Adiyogi Alayam

Aadhi Yogi

A quiet Sea
A quiet Day
A quiet Mind

But a raging Heart
Blazing with Fire
Of an ancient Sage.

Burning for many a millennia
Destructive for the ignorant
Enlightening for the seeking
Brutal to the stubborn
Tender to the willing.

When all the tricks fall
The First Yogi's Fire shall
Burn the ignorant pall
To light the future's citadel

Citadels of future are first
built in the minds of Ignorance or Light

These citadels when lit with Grace
Of the Blue-Bodied Maker of all race
Will be a worthy place to dwell here
and a passage to the ways of the beyond.

O' how fortunate are we
To carry the Fire of the Aadhi Yogi.

Sadhguru's message on the Bhumi Pooja of Aadhi Yogi Aalayam

Sadhguru wrote:
Within myself, I have always been bothered that the great Aadhi Yogi is not being held on the right kind of pedestal that He deserves in this world. With this in mind, we are creating suitable tools, not just as a sign of gratitude, but also to make the knowledge and technology He has given to the world available to more and more people. We want to start this in many other places in the world, but the first step is happening at the foothills of these mountains.

This is only the first step. We stand here today with a promise within us that we will make His footprint happen all over the world.

April 21st, 2011 - a seemingly ordinary day - marked a milestone for humanity, with the beginning of the construction of Aadhi Yogi Aalayam. When finished, this 79,000 sq ft meditation hall and mandapam will be an offering and a promise to the world, a space where one can receive powerful initiations into a spiritual process.

Traditionally, in India, before constructing a new building, a "Bhumi Pooja" is performed upon the Earth on which the building will come.

Under the scalding rays of the mid-morning sun, hundreds of people were welcomed onto the construction site with Aadhi Yogi chants sung by the Samskriti children. The bustle of excitement surrounded one massive stone, which was engraved with an enjoined sun and moon, symbolizing the Ultimate union of the dualities. Soon, Sadhguru entered, striding briskly to the stone. Not wasting any time, amid gestures and signals, the sacred stone was properly positioned.

After washing the rock, Sadhguru stood atop a table to smear the sun with vibhuti, and half moon with kumkum. He adorned it with a mala. The Master showed his playful side as he lightly hopped on the already wobbling table. In one leap, he jumped back onto the ground.

All sat down for the Guru Pooja.

Pranams to Sadhguru. It is an oppurtunity for us to be at the important moment of our life - our Gurus' vision - Adhi yogi alayam. A remarkable alayam - as usual; the way Isha's way.

The possibility that You are
Behind the disguise of what You seem
Will the ignorant or the so called spiritual geeks ever
Know the value of being in the era that You are in…?
Will we ever make use of this possibility?
Will we ever be awakened from our deep sleep?
Will we ever try to come outta the dream we are so attached to?
Will we ever break the cycle of being recycled?
Will we ever plunge into the darkness and become the light?
Oh! How glad I am to see….
You have the methods and tools for
All the ignorant, fools and geeks…
How compassionate You must be…
To begin something that will sweep this world off its feet…
I am so happy to know
In some way. You won’t spare even a single soul..
And each one in this planet will be touched
By this Aalyam in big or small way!!
I am happy we can lead a stupid life and still be saved
I bow down to You!

Sadhguru's GRACE always pouring on us...

So every sun rise and sun set, moon glow from now on, will keep us reminding of the dedicated lot under Sadguru's guidance toiling to complete the mission tribute to the Adhi Yogi

Every act and drop of sweat and energy towards completion will bring in divine vibrations for us and for the future generation to inebrate the energies of the alayam.

Pranams to Sadguru and the all the dedicated lot who will contribute in its completion in whatever measure possible.

If not now when ? ......May we make Sadguru dream and mission a possibility.

A rock standing tall
A picture sizzling on the rock
A poem to tribute the first
And another hand supporting
And screaming about the possibilities
O' my God, you still keeping your hope
To win this victorious troop?

I know a little about him
The one who found this fire first
If he comes and see this run
I am sure even he wont hesitate
To clap and praise this team
The team who have won the hearts
And the team who have made him proud

O' the sleepers,
Who are still in the ignorant dream
If you can see only the rock
And the glow of the picture
Then you have missed everything
The tone of the poem,
The value of being in the era
And even the rise of an ocean
Between those lines of possibilities.

Through the tribute and the call
I see and smell a storm
Do you see the dust puffing up?
