Adiyogi: The Source of Yoga - An Iconic Inspiration

                                                Adiyogi predates all religion; 
                           in celebration of the universality of his methods, 
                               this glorious face of 112 ft height ~ Sadhguru

On Mahashivaratri 2017 (February 24th), a 112-foot face of Adiyogi – the largest face in the world – will be consecrated by Sadhguru at the Isha Yoga Center in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India.

The glorious face of Adiyogi will be an inspiration and a reminder to all, that the science of yoga is the doorway to liberation. The idea of creating an iconic face like this is not to build one more monument but to use it as a galvanizing force to transform the world from believing what we do not know, to seeking the truth of life. This will be the cornerstone of a spiritual movement that will flood the world as envisioned by Sadhguru.

It is Sadhguru’s wish and vision that everyone above the age of ten is empowered with simple tools for transformation to enable themselves and blossom to their full potential.

We would like to make sure that this movement reaches as many people as possible.

                                     A world full of love, light and laughter
                 – its time has come. Let us make it happen. ~ Sadhguru
                                           We invite you to get involved

Let us begin by making yoga a part of our life through these 5-minute tools for transformation. Yoga is not about twisting and bending, standing on one’s head or holding one’s breathe. Yoga is the science and technology to explore the essential nature of how this life is created, and how it can be taken to its ultimate possibility.

The number 112 is both symbolic and scientifically significant to our existence. Adiyogi opened up one hundred and twelve possibilities for human beings to reach their ultimate nature. You could also contribute in multiples of 112 For E.g. - Rs.1120 or $112. Rs.2240 or $224.

You can contribute in Angas: One Anga is 1 square feet of the total surface area of AdiYogi statue. Cost of 1 Anga is Rs 3750.
  • One Eye is 90 Angas – Rs.3,37,500/-
  • Forehead is 250 Angas – Rs.9,37,500/-
  • Ear is 160 Angas – Rs.6,00,000/-

Who is Adiyogi?
In the yogic culture, Shiva is not known as a god, but as the Adiyogi or the first yogi – the originator of yoga.   Read More….

Why 112 feet Adiyogi?
The idea of creating an iconic face like this is not to build one more monument but to use it as a galvanizing force to transform the world from a mass of believers to individuals who seek truth of life and beyond.  Read More…

Why Yoga?
As there is a technology to create external wellbeing, there is a whole dimension of science and technology to create inner wellbeing. Read More…

Why should I contribute here vs other social projects ?
Joyful humanbeings and hence Yoga is the bedrock of any successful society. It is in the backdrop of such a society will other interventions be most effective. So, while all types of social projects are the need of the hour, creating joyful and inclusive human beings is more important than ever before.

What is Mahashivarathri?
Mahashivratri is one of the biggest 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.   Read More…

What is Consecration?
Consecration is a live process. It is like this – if you transform mud into food, we call this agriculture. If you make food into flesh and bone, we call this digestion. If you make flesh into mud, we call this cremation. If you can make this flesh or even a stone or an empty space into a Divine possibility, that is called consecration.  See More…

19th February 2017

Sadhguru gives us a preview of his much awaited book “Adiyogi-The Source of Yoga”.

The book is about Adiyogi, the myth and magic of Shiva, and the science of yoga.

When people ask me about the Adiyogi book [1], which we are going to release this Mahashivratri, I have to say it is a very unusual kind of book, with three different dimensions intertwined. One is this most incredible myth of Shiva and his life. Mythological, magical stuff doesn’t always stand to reason. Parallel to the myth is a dimension of pure science. The third dimension is my inner experience. Myth, science, and inner experience are woven together, which makes the Adiyogi book quite unique.

The three aspects of the Adiyogi book – myth, science, and inner experience – together form a well-woven fabric. It is a new genre, which does not fit into any of the standard categories such as mythology, science, or spiritual self-help. What adds to the mystical, if not to say ethereal character of the book is its geographical origin . It was conceived in the upper regions of the Himalaya, where Adiyogi first appeared over fifteen thousand years ago.

Above all, the book is about Adiyogi, the myth and magic of Shiva, and the science of yoga. It is about the possibility to take the very process of life into our hands. Adiyogi represents an ancient but state-of-the-art technology for inner wellbeing. Today, finally, the world seems ready to embrace the highly refined, non-sectarian science of yoga he offered. A science that is tailored to suit minds that are more questioning than they have ever been before. The aim of this book is to bring Adiyogi to the people, as he does not belong to the past. He belongs to the future.

Here, at the Isha Yoga Center, we are working day and night to prepare for the consecration of the Yogeshwar Linga, the consecration of the one hundred and twelve feet tall Adiyogi face, and Mahashivratri. I want all of you to be part of this historic event. This is an event like no other. I will be on full force and so shall be my Partner – the First One. This also is a step to preserve the purity of the subjective Science of Yoga, not by instruction but by establishing an Energetic Source.

Love & Grace,
