“Bond of Grace is a Bond for Life.” — Sadhguru

Bond of Grace, formerly known as Mahima Yantra, is a consecrated form made of copper that has been placed in the sphere of the Dhyanalinga to imbibe its energies.

Ishanga 7% Partners have an opportunity to participate in an exclusive online program called “Sadhguru Offers Bond of Grace.” In this online program, you will be initiated into a powerful process, to be practiced every day to enhance your connection with grace.

Ishanga 7% Partners are not required to have the consecrated form or participate in this ceremony to be available to grace. For those who prefer to have a consecrated form to be able to connect with, you can register for the upcoming ceremony. 

Bond of Grace ceremony date: 30 October 2021, 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM CST.

Frequently Asked Questions

Anyone who wishes to take Sadhguru’s grace as a support for their life’s endeavors can be an Ishanga 7%, namely, salaried employees, professionals or business owners. Even if you currently do not have a job or income, you may still hold Sadhguru as a silent partner and there is no obligation to contribute when you don’t have an income. When the income resumes, the contribution can resume.

Donations to Isha Foundation Inc. are tax deductible under section 501(c)(3) of IRS for US taxpayers.

Due to the nature and sanctity of this commitment, there is no prescribed way to calculate the 7%. However, here are some general guidelines for 7%:

  • It can be based either on gross or net income, pre or post tax; revenue or profits.
  • If you have a business and salaried income (or other sources of income), you can include all your income in calculating 7% contributions. For example, you can make a yearly contribution for your business income and periodic contributions for your salary income.
  • If you and your spouse are both earning and willing to contribute, you can either register for Ishanga 7% as two separate contributors (hence, two separate IDs) or include the joint income in calculating the 7%. This may also depend on how you prefer to file taxes, jointly or separately. Alternatively, if your partner is not yet ready to join the program, you can make the contributions based on your income alone.

Employer matching donations are a great way to contribute to Isha. However, given the nature of the Ishanga 7% commitment, your contributions should come from your income. Employer’s matching donations can be an addition to your 7% contribution. You may look up your employer here (scroll to the middle of the page).

You can choose your payment frequency, as it will vary based on individual situations. Payments can be spread throughout the year. You can make payments either at regular intervals (monthly, quarterly, semi-annually) or multiple one-off payments subject to your income. Typically, salaried people may prefer to contribute monthly while someone running their own business may prefer to contribute at the end of the year when the books are closed.

The payment methods include online credit card and bank account withdrawal (ACH). Both have recurrent options available. We recommend using bank withdrawal (ACH) donations through bank accounts as it avoids service fees and maximizes your donation. Once you submit your Ishanga 7% application, we will share the ID and website link to make the donation. While we encourage making your contributions online on the website, if you need to send checks or money orders, please contact us at donate@ishausa.org.

  • If you wish to avail tax savings for the current year, please mail a check dated within December of this year. 
  • If setting up bank withdrawal, please do so online at the Ishanga 7% donation web page.
  • If you are residing in Canada, you can contribute via Paypal from our site and it would be converted to US dollars or you can send a check.

Usually, monthly donations are deducted on the 15th of each month.

Yes, you can change the details as needed. Please write to us at donate@ishausa.org with your ID and we will guide you.

You can still participate in Ishanga 7%. However, please note that your donations may not be tax deductible.

 
 

The Bond of Grace Yantra is a consecrated form made of copper and is placed in the sphere of the Dhyanalinga to imbibe its energies. Ishanga 7% partners can be initiated into a sacred process by Sadhguru through the Bond of Grace Yantra Ceremony.

Yes, what was formerly Mahima Yantra is now referred to as Bond of Grace Yantra.

Receiving the yantra is optional and not mandatory. You can remain an Ishanga 7% partner and contribute even without getting initiated into the yantra process. The sanctity and commitment of the Ishanga 7% program stays irrespective of the yantra. However, some may find it easier to connect with an energy form. On the other hand, some may opt out of receiving the yantra due to their lifestyle or other considerations (frequent travellers, unavoidable time constraints, already have other yantras, space constraints, family/business partners may not be ready, etc.). 

Yes, there is a daily 10-minute process for this yantra. You will be given the process and instructions during the yantra ceremony.

If you are traveling for longer than 10 days, you can take the yantra with you. It is small enough, approximately 1×1 ft and weighs about 12 lbs. We recommend keeping it in your carry-on luggage. It won’t be touched or mishandled if you explain that it is a religious item. Alternatively, a blood relative or your partner can take care of the yantra. If you do not have anyone to take care of it, cover it with an off-white 100% cotton or silk cloth while you are away.

You can keep the yantra in any room at home, as long as its sanctity is maintained. You can sleep in the same room as the yantra. It can be in the same room as the Devi Yantra or Sannidhi. 

Beginning 2021, the Bond of Grace yantra ceremony will be offered online and may be offered more than once a year.
