Launching Vivaha
In this week’s Spot, Sadhguru announces the launch of Vivaha -- a form of consecration for marriages. “This is a very ancient form, probably not in vogue for quite some time. Its origin is in the yogic system, where the fundamental process is Bhuta Shuddhi…” Sadhguru explains the significance, and offers meditators the opportunity to be trained to conduct the process. Enjoy!
 
 
 
 

We will be launching Vivaha -- a certain form of consecration for marriages. This is a very ancient form, probably not in vogue for quite some time. Its origin is in the yogic system, where the fundamental process is Bhuta Shuddhi, which means having knowledge and mastery over the magic of the five elements. The whole system of yoga is focused on this.

When one wants to transcend, he takes to sanyas and uses the methods of Bhuta Shuddhi to bypass life. But for those who have succumbed to the ways of life, or have fallen in love with the process of life and are not just focused on the ultimate goal, there is another system. The same process of Bhuta Shuddhi can be used to bring a maximum sense of involvement and merger between two people, with minimum sense of entanglement.

What Bhuta Shuddhi means on one level is purification of the five elements. The refinement of the elements will determine what type of life anyone or anything becomes. In its grossest form, a life form will be inanimate. As it refines, it becomes many things; a human being is supposed to be the highest level of refinement. If a human being refines further, the possibility of touching divinity is there, and this is what the whole system of yoga is about. This refinement of elements also brings a certain union. The separation of each individual form is actually determined by the grossness of the elements in every human being. 

The nature of Vivaha is such that the benefit is not only for the bride and the groom, but for everyone who witnesses and engages in it.

At times, you feel trapped in the limitations of your physical boundaries. There are other moments when you feel like you are part of everything else. This is essentially determined by how the elements are functioning within you. With just these five, what a magnificent mischief has been created in the form of the Cosmos and in the form of life.

With Radhe and Sandeep’s marriage, we set this process. We are now making it available to the world. We will be training people of a certain integrity and devotion to make this process available to everyone. For those of you who are interested in offering this to others, you may contact us, particularly if you are a married couple.

Offering this service to the bride, groom and their families can be the most valued and important process in their lives. The nature of Vivaha is such that the benefit is not only for the bride and the groom, but for everyone who witnesses and engages in it.

Love & Grace

Trap to Transcendence...
Well, getting wedded need not mean to be trapped exactly, but somewhere there's a little insufficiency that drives one through. As Sadhguru often says, there's "falling in love" (to feel smaller before your beloved) and that's beautiful, yet it sounds like a longer path, a tougher terrain. And now, our Deva has provided that most wanted acceleration.
