Saptarishi Arati is a powerful process taught by Shiva to his disciples - the seven sages thousands of years ago. The process has been preserved in its pure form by priests of the Kashi Vishwanath temple in Varanasi.
Every year on the occasion of Agastya Jayanti, seven priests from the sacred Kashi Vishwanath temple conduct the Saptarishi Arati to offer gratitude to the Saptarishis for being a vehicle for Shiva’s grace. This is the only occasion when Arati is offered outside the Kashi Vishwanath temple.
When Sadhguru visited the Kashi Vishwanath Temple, his first experience of this Arati was very powerful. He describes the Arati as the creation of powerful stacks of energy. He says “It is a technology. What they build up in this temple in that forty-five minutes to one hour is phenomenal. I’ve never seen anything like that anywhere conducted by priests.”
