In last week’s Spot, Sadhguru spoke about a new sadhana which is being introduced separately for women and men, allowing them to become more receptive to Grace. The dates for each sadhana have been finalized, culminating on the Thaipusam Day for women and Mahashivarathri for men.
Thaipusam Day – Sadhana for Women
Thaipusam, which takes place on the first full moon after the winter solstice, is traditionally seen as a day of auspiciousness and grace, which a person can make use of for their wellbeing. Particularly, it is a day when many siddhas, seers and yogis chose to leave their body and attain to their ultimate nature. This is also the day chosen by Sadhguru for the prana pratishtha of the Linga Bhairavi temple.
For 21 days preceding the Thaipusam day, a special sadhana will be open for women to connect with and receive the Grace of Linga Bhairavi Devi. The sadhana will start at the beginning of Uttarayana, a time of great spiritual significance, when the sun’s run shifts to the Northern Hemisphere – a time recognized as highly conducive to receive Grace.
This year’s sadhana for women will take place from 6th-27th January, 2013. For more information, please contact: 94864 94865, 94890 00333 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Shivanga – Sadhana for Men
The Velliangiri Mountains are also known as Thenkailayam or South Kailash – a space where the Adiyogi Shiva himself spent some time. Over the ages, many siddhas and seers have enshrined their energies and Grace in these mountains, which can be accessed and imbibed even today. Every year, lakhs of devotees make the pilgrimage to the Velliangiri’s sacred Seventh Hill, a space of tremendous power and energy.
On the night of Mahashivarathri, devotees have a rare opportunity to make this pilgrimage after undergoing a vrata – a period of sadhana. Open only to men, this sadhana enhances receptivity to the energies of Dhyanalinga, and allows them to explore higher levels of experience in body, mind, and energy. The sadhana will start at the beginning of Uttarayana, a time of great spiritual significance, when the sun’s run shifts to the Northern Hemisphere – a time recognized as highly conducive to receive Grace.
This year’s sadhana for men will take place from 27th January -10th March. For more information, please contact: 83000 15111 or email@example.com
