Calendar

There are several events that visitors can participate in while at the Isha Yoga Center.

Daily Events

Nada Aradhana is a unique offering of sounds that takes place twice a day from 11:50 am to 12:10 pm and 5:50 pm to 6:10 pm. This etheric blend of flowing vocals, singing bowls, drums and other instruments enables one to be more receptive to the energies of the Dhyanalinga.

Aumkara Diksha is an opportunity for visitors to the Temple to be initiated into the timeless AUM meditation. This simple meditation when practiced regularly can help strengthen one's physical and mental composition and bring about tremendous balance and well being. The process is offered to the public daily from 12:30 pm to 1:10 pm.

Monthly Events

Pancha Bhuta Aradhana:The basis of all creation, including the physical body, is the five elements. Pancha Bhuta Aradhana is a process which purifies these five elements within the human system, enhancing the wellbeing of the body and mind. This process also aids towards making the body a stepping stone for one's ultimate wellbeing rather than a hurdle. There is a whole system of yoga called bhuta shuddhi, meaning purification of the elements. more ~>

Amavasya and Pournami Days: In the yogic tradition, Amavasya (New Moon) and Pournami (Full Moon) days are held as particularly conducive for the spiritual seeker. Any sadhana (spiritual practice) performed on these days is understood to have a greater impact on the human system.

On these days, visitors are invited to make personal offerings of ksheera (milk) or jala(water) to the Dhyanalinga. Ksheera is offered from 6:30 am to 1:00 pm and Jala from 1:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

As the energies of the new moon are especially conducive for men, the temple is open for men to meditate up to 1:00 am on Amavasya nights, and similarly, as the full moon vibrations are particularly conducive for women, the temple is open up to 1:00 am for women on Pournami nights.

Yearly Events

Mahashivarathri Festival is celebrated each year in the form of a nightlong Sathsang featuring explosive meditations interspersed with lively and colorful cultural events that are held in the presence of Sadhguru. This special evening presents a sadhaka with a powerful situation to make use of the unique planetary positions on that day to evolve into higher levels of consciousness. more ~>

Offerings: Visitors can make an offering of the daily mala(flower garland) to adorn the Dhyanalinga on a day of their choice. The date may be reserved in advance at the Temple Reception desk. Visitors can also offer flowers, incense, and oil for the lamps, or contribute towards distribution of prasadam (sweet offering) on weekends.
