Sadhguru is the author and designer of several unique buildings and consecrated spaces at the Isha Yoga Center, which have gained wide attention for their combination of intense sacred power with strikingly innovative eco-friendly aesthetics.
The Adiyogi Alayam is specially consecrated to allow one to experience Hata Yoga and other yogic practices in their full depth and dimension. – Sadhguru
Just sitting silently for a few minutes within the sphere of Dhyanalinga is enough to make even those unaware of meditation experience a state of deep meditativeness. – Sadhguru
Those who earn the Grace of Bhairavi neither have to live in concern or fear of life or death, of poverty, or of failure. All that human beings consider as wellbeing will be theirs, if only they earn the Grace of Bhairavi. – Sadhguru
As you go into higher levels of meditation, you come to a state of Spanda – intense, unmanifest energy – before you literally recreate yourself. – Sadhguru
Essentially, Suryakund and Chandrakund are energy pools that melt away karmic blocks, and that allow you to experience Dhyanalinga. – Sadhguru
Adiyogi is here to liberate you from disease, discomfort, and poverty – above all, from the very process of life and death. – Sadhguru
Mahashivratri is one of the largest and most significant among the sacred festival nights of India. This – the darkest night of the year – celebrates the Grace of Shiva, who is considered the Adi Guru or the First Guru, from whom the yogic tradition originates.
Isha Yoga Center provides numerous and varied volunteering opportunities of both short-term and long-term duration.
Linga Seva is an opportunity for volunteers who wish to spend a dedicated amount of time volunteering in Dhyanalinga. Open to anyone who has completed Inner Engineering, it is comprised of one day silence, followed by eight days of seva in the Dhyanalinga premises. Linga Seva is a powerful form of bhakti sadhana to make oneself more receptive to the Grace of the Dhyanalinga.
