On December 24, 2011 Sadhguru consecrated the Adiyogi Alayam, a sacred space for self-transformation. The event took place at the Isha Yoga Center in Tamil Nadu, India and was attended by over 10,000 people. During the consecration process, Sadhguru prepared a concoction of king cobra venom and milk as an offering to the linga, but not before ingesting some himself. One participant asks why.
The video includes a montage of the offering from the consecration, as well as Sadhguru's answer, which addresses the scientific and mystical elements of consecration. The transcript is below.
