Energy Form Ceremony at Isha Yoga Center


Following is a poem by an Isha resident who took part in the Ishanga 7% process:


A thousand forms with serpent hoods
Strung with thread turmeric soaked
Sacred ash and vermillion anointed
Rest all night in the temple shrine

A space awaits, a stage is set
A thousand reed mats on stone floor
As willing hands and legs toil all night
Before the matted locks of the Adi Yogi

Each form on a cloth of white cotton
Adorned with leaves and jasmine buds
Camphor tablet in copper plate
And holy water in copper pot

Devotees and disciples file in
Sit in silence as music plays
Instructions given, chants reverberate
As Grace primeval comes alive

The Master arrives and sits in stillness
A thousand lamps lit and hearts set aflame
Love meets longing, Presence meets seeking
Camphor melts as tears unhindered flow

Waves of bliss, waves of joy
Where do You end, where do I begin
Time stands still and in this moment
Ishanga... you are born...
