“On Mahashivratri, at the foothills of Velliangiri, you are at the right place at the right time. If you keep yourself receptive, this can be a night of awakening.” – Sadhguru
Mahashivratri presents us with a unique opportunity to make use of the forces of nature for our wellbeing. At 11 degree latitude in India, because of the tilt and precision in the spin axis of the Earth, the centrifugal force is nearly vertical, and Isha Yoga Center by virtue of being on this latitude becomes an ideal place to be on the night of Mahashivratri.
The exuberant nightlong festival at the Isha Yoga Center sets the ideal ambiance for the unfolding of an intense spiritual experience.
The nightlong festival features:
The most sought-after happening, Sadhguru initiates the millions gathered at the Isha Yoga Center and the billions watching online, into a powerful meditation. Stay awake to make this a spiritual possibility for you!
Every year at Isha, we celebrate Mahashivaratri in grandeur with renowned artistes performing music and dance through the night to inspire everyone to participate and benefit from it.
Devotees who are at the Isha Yoga Center on Mahashivratri will receive a rudraksh bead as prasadam. This bead is one of one lakh and eight such rudraksh beads that have adorned Adiyogi over the last a year.
This Mahashivratri, devotees who come to the Isha Yoga Center for the celebrations will be able to receive a Sarpa Sutra. Made of copper, the Sarpa Sutra should be worn on the left ring finger and is supportive for stability and wellbeing.
Pradakshina is the process of circumambulating a powerful energy source to imbibe its energy. Through Adiyogi Pradakshina one can become receptive to the Grace of Adiyogi, which can fuel one’s striving towards ultimate liberation.
