In last week’s Spot, Sadhguru spoke about a new sadhana which is being introduced separately for women and men, allowing them to become more receptive to Grace. The dates for each sadhana have been finalized, culminating on the Thaipusam Day for women and Mahashivarathri for men.

Thaipusam Day - Sadhana for Women

Thaipusam, which takes place on the first full moon after the winter solstice, is traditionally seen as a day of auspiciousness and grace, which a person can make use of for their wellbeing. Particularly, it is a day when many siddhas, seers and yogis chose to leave their body and attain to their ultimate nature. This is also the day chosen by Sadhguru for the prana pratishtha of the Linga Bhairavi temple.

For 21 days preceding the Thaipusam day, a special sadhana will be open for women to connect with and receive the Grace of Linga Bhairavi Devi. The sadhana will start at the beginning of Uttarayana, a time of great spiritual significance, when the sun’s run shifts to the Northern Hemisphere – a time recognized as highly conducive to receive Grace.

This year’s sadhana for women will take place from 6th-27th January, 2013. For more information, please contact: 94864 94865, 94890 00333 or temple@lingabhairavi.org

Shivanga - Sadhana for Men

The Velliangiri Mountains are also known as Thenkailayam or South Kailash – a space where the Adiyogi Shiva himself spent some time. Over the ages, many siddhas and seers have enshrined their energies and Grace in these mountains, which can be accessed and imbibed even today. Every year, lakhs of devotees make the pilgrimage to the Velliangiri’s sacred Seventh Hill, a space of tremendous power and energy.

On the night of Mahashivarathri, devotees have a rare opportunity to make this pilgrimage after undergoing a vrata – a period of sadhana. Open only to men, this sadhana enhances receptivity to the energies of Dhyanalinga, and allows them to explore higher levels of experience in body, mind, and energy. The sadhana will start at the beginning of Uttarayana, a time of great spiritual significance, when the sun’s run shifts to the Northern Hemisphere – a time recognized as highly conducive to receive Grace.

This year’s sadhana for men will take place from 27th January -10th March. For more information, please contact: 83000 15111 or info@dhyanalinga.org

Namaskaram.
How about people who have Diabetics. For example Sugar patients are not supposed to stay with empty stomach. Doctors advise them to to eat littles at regular intervals. Therefore eating only 2 times a day will be difficult for Sugar patients. I would be grateful if you can suggest a way out for this. I am very much eager to participate but I have this constraint.

Namaskaram all,

We would
like to clarify that the Sadhana announced by Sadhguru during the
Suryakund consecration is only relevant for people living in India, at
this point. Because of its content and also because of the logistics
involved, it will not be possible to include meditators living outside
India.

Perhaps next year, Sadhguru will unfold something that can be done
anywhere in the world, but for this year, let us see how to deepen the
Sadhana we already have been offered, and make use of this powerful time
of the year in every way we can.

Pranam.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. <a href="http://www.ABCGURU.XYZ&quot; rel="nofollow">Seo Plugin</a>
