Dhyana Linga

Dhyana Linga
The sacred land of India has been witness to the lives of countless yogis, sages and enlightened beings. The Dhyana Linga Yogic Temple, situated at the foothills of the Velliangiri Mountains in Coimbatore district of Tamil Nadu, India, is very much part of this glorious tradition.

The Dhyana Linga was consecrated by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, a mystic and realized Master, after three years of intense prana prathistha, using his own energies. The people involved in the consecration process underwent intense sadhana, overcoming the limitations of the body and the mind to energize the Dhyana Linga. Dhyana in Sanskrit means 'meditation',, and Linga means 'the form'.

As Sadhguru describes it, the linga-form allows energy to be brought to the highest intensity, at which it
can still retain a form. Beyond that, it moves into formlessness. During the consecration process, the energies of all the seven chakras were raised to the very peak and locked to prevent dissipation over time. It is expected that the energies of the Dhyana Linga will not suffer dissipation for at least 5000 years.

Just sitting silently for a few minutes within the sphere of Dhyana Linga is enough to make even those unaware of meditation experience a state of deep meditativeness and feel the divine energy that overflows from this glorious form. The physical form of Dhyana Linga--the black granite stone--was primarily used as a scaffolding for this energy form. Even if this were to be removed now, the energy that exists there cannot be removed or destroyed . It is eternally present and available to all.

Well, you will be amazed to look at the compostion of this Dhyana Linga. Measuring a height of 13 feet 9 inches, the Dhyana Linga is the largest Mercury-based live linga in the world. At the base of Dhyana Linga is a tub filled with etheric substances called the veeryasthana, comprising mainly Mercury solidified through methods of Indian alchemy. There is a cylindrical column at the center of the linga about one inch in diameter, called the lingarandra, which contains a Copper tube filled with Mercury, called the lingadanda.

Even though the primary purpose of the Dhyana Linga is spiritual liberation, all aspects of life are enshrined in its structure, in the form of seven chakras energized to the very peak and locked. Moreover, on each day of the week, the Dhyana Linga radiates a different quality, through which a visitor can derive a multitude of benifits. To know more about the special powers on each days of the week visit here.

Every month hundreds of people come to the Centre to be a part of these events. Hope everyone visits this temple, as it is not just for god but also for yoga and spiritual strengthening and liberation.
