Adiyogi: The Source of Yoga - An Iconic Inspiration

Tax benefits
                                                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…

Volunteering sharing of Consecration day 2

“At the close of the previous night’s session, Sadhguru made a promise that ‘we will explore certain dimensions of what the Yogeshwar Linga means as experientially as possible tomorrow.’

Keeping to this, today’s sessions have been filled with explosive processes, ensuring that not a single person within the space could miss the incredible energy form being born before our eyes.

Lacking Sadhguru’s mystical perception, we merely watch in awe as he touches here, feels there, senses so many things which are well beyond our grasp. Each offering made, each precise action seems to be guided by a knowledge from some other realm, a realm to which we can only strive to gain access.” 
– Volunteer Sharing

Imbibing the Divine
How to put into words that which tongues cannot tell?
Is the essence of the Divine to be heard in the beat of a drum
or glimpsed in the depth of a burning flame?
Does it spill out like water from a copper vessel
or blossom like a jasmine?
Can it be inhaled
or simply imbibed?

Bringing you an update on the Consecration
Day 1

Sadhguru begins to speak about form and geometry. “When formless dimensions of existence take to a form, the geometry of that form determines how that particular form is going to function.”
“Where there is perfection of geometry with a certain complexity,” he says, “that dimension is always looked up to as Divine.” A certain perfection of geometry also results in minimal friction or resistance and maximum efficiency.

The linga, Sadhguru explains, is designed to bring a certain intensity of involvement, “not emotional love – sheer intensity of involvement, where inclusiveness will lead to union.”

Sadhguru then offers insight into how the Yogeshwar Linga is energetically structured. “This particular linga has 5 chakras,” he explains. “Each one of them has 16 dimensions. Mooladhara, swadhisthana, manipuraka, vishuddi and agna – no anahata. A heartless yogi.”

“The linga is created for sadhana, not for worship. Of course people are going to worship him, but essentially it’s created for sadhana.”

“There are 2 aspects, 2 dimensions or approaches,” Sadhguru continues, “Yogaratova, bhogaratova – either you can approach it in discipline or in abandon. This is a combination of discipline, ascetic on one level – another level is dripping ecstasy.”

Sadhguru explains that once the Yogeshwar Linga is fully consecrated, “different people will come and they will touch him in different ways depending upon their orientation…He will ensure that according to the prarabdha that you have, the surface deck of karma that you have, he will make sure you always approach it that way.”

Discussing one’s prarabdha karma, Sadhguru says, “If one has to cross the limits, if not all the limits, at least in a reasonable way, one has to dismantle some aspect of their prarabdha.” If this is not done, he says, it is like “you trying to eat a nut with the shell on, it does not taste good. You must break the shell and eat. Then the nut is sweet.”

Not Love, But Inclusiveness
The linga, Sadhguru explains, is designed to bring a certain intensity of involvement, “not emotional love – sheer intensity of involvement, where inclusiveness will lead to union.”

A heartless yogi is pure because he cannot have positive or negative emotion. He knows only yoga, inclusion.

“As beautiful as it seems, the love affairs are just a small taste of inclusiveness. This spells poverty of profound experiences in life.”

Explaining why he is using the word “heartless” to describe the linga, Sadhguru says, “A heartless yogi is not brutal – full of anger, rancor. A heartless yogi is pure because he cannot have positive or negative emotion. He knows only yoga, inclusion.”
