The Dhyanalinga is open every day from 6am to 8pm. On Shivratris, the timings are 6:00am - 4:00pm, 6:15pm - 8:00pm. There are several events that occur on a daily basis, such as Nada Aradhana or the offering of sound, Aumkar initiation, and the Isha Kriya guided meditation.

Nada Aradhana
Nada Aradhana

Nada Aradhana at Dhyanalinga: 11:45am - 12:10pm, 5:45pm - 6:10pm. Nada Aradhana is an offering of sound to the Dhyanalinga, an etheric blend of vocals, singing bowls, drums and various other instruments that takes place twice daily during the Sandhya Kalas. Nada in Sanskrit means “sound” and Aradhana signifies “devotional offering”.

Aumkar
Aumkar

Visitors coming to the Isha Yoga Center can be initiated into the timeless and powerful mantra "Aum". The mantra activates and energizes the various sections of the body, reverberating through the whole system. Furthermore, it can bring peace and balance to the meditator's system, and is known to relieve people from numerous physical and mental ailments when practiced regularly.

IshaKriya
Isha Kriya

Isha Kriya is a simple yet potent process rooted in the timeless wisdom of the yogic sciences. Offered by Sadhguru, it has the potential to transform the life of anyone willing to invest just 12 minutes a day.

Daily practice of Isha Kriya helps brings health, dynamism, peace and wellbeing. It is a powerful tool to cope with the hectic pace of modern life.

Linga Snanam
Linga Snanam

On certain days, the days the Dhyanalinga undergoes a cleansing process called Linga Snanam. Overseen by the Brahmacharis and Sanyasis, this happens every week – particularly before and after the Purnima (full moon) and Amavasya (new moon) days. You have the opportunity to participate in the Linga Snanam.

Processes and offerings
RITUALS AND OFFERINGS
Dhoop (Incense)

The fragrance of dhoop lends a supportive ambiance for the spiritual possibility. Offerings of dhoop can be placed on the table adjacent to Patanjali.

Lotus Offering

In Indian spirituality, a lotus is a symbol for spiritual growth. Fresh lotus flowers can be offered at the jalaseema, the water body surrounding Dhyanalinga.

Linga Jyoti (Lamp Offering)

Linga Jyotis, unique lamps made of copper and brass, have been designed by Sadhguru as a symbol of purification and light. A Linga Jyoti can be offered during a visit to Dhyanalinga, or purchased to preserve and radiate the energies of Dhyanalinga at home.

Mala Offering

An abundance of fresh flowers, exquisitely arranged as malas (garlands) are offered every day, spreading a sense of natural beauty, color and fragrance. Malas can be offered individually or together to Dhyanalinga, the Naga, the panels in the Dhyanalinga inner parikrama, Patanjali, Vanashree or the avudiyar. The offering can be made on special occasions of celebration, in remembrance of loved ones or simply as an expression of gratitude.

Amavasya and Purnima Offerings

There is a natural upsurge of energies in the human body on the days of Amavasya (new moon) and Purnima (full moon). As a result, they are held as days of significance for the spiritual seeker. On these two days, one can have the rare privilege and honor of personally making an offering of ksheera (milk) or jala (water) upon the Dhyanalinga. Ksheera is offered from 6am to 12:30pm and jala from 12:30pm to 8pm.

Dhyanalinga Vastram

Devotees have the opportunity of offering a linga vastram (cotton or silk), the sacred cloth draped on the Dhyanalinga, or to take an energized linga vastram home. Keeping the linga vastram in a shrine, meditation room or pooja room at home will transform the atmosphere of that space.
