Kashi - The Eternal City
Kashi, “the City of Light” is said to be more than 15,000 years old – the oldest inhabited city in the world. Home to 33 million gods and goddesses, this magnificent city was the beloved abode of Adiyogi Shiva and his wife Parvati, soon after their marriage. The Adiyogi himself established a powerful mandala (a sacred circular geometric pattern) of the city, by consecrating 108 shrines with unique qualities in a certain pattern – which continues to live even today.
In a series of talks, and a walk around the ancient city with Prasoon Joshi – noted lyricist and scriptwriter – Sadhguru elaborates on the science and geometry behind the layout of the city, the rich mythology of the land, and how despite invasions, Kashi has retained its glory and power, drawing millions of people from all over the world every year.
