Shivanga is a journey from being a part of creation, to being a part of the source of creation or the Creator. Every life around us has the same source but the biggest advantage, challenge or possibility that human beings have in their lives is that we are capable of realizing it. We are capable of making it into a conscious process. None of the other creatures can realize that they are made of this stuff. If you light the fire of devotion in your heart, you will not live here as a piece of earth, but as a limb or a part of Shiva.
- Sadhguru

The Shivanga sadhana is a powerful 42-day vrata (period of sadhana) for men. Shivanga literally means, “limb of Shiva.” Offered by Sadhguru, this sadhana enhances receptivity to the energies of Dhyanalinga, and allows one to explore deeper levels of experience in body, mind, and energy. The sadhana is also an opportunity to make a pilgrimage to the sacred Velliangiri Mountain, and be initiated into Shiva Namaskar, a powerful practice.

Initiation into the Shivanga sadhana for Mahashivarathri will be offered on January 15, which is the first full moon day of Uttarayana. This day is considered very auspicious and is known as Thaipoosam or Dhanya Pournami – the Pournami (full moon day) of fulfillment. The initiation is available in many cities around the world. The sadhana culminates on Mahashivarathri on February 27 at the Isha Yoga Center.

    I am wondering, is it must to visit Velliangiri Mountain at the end of Sadana?

    • Hemant

      Its nt a must to visit Velliangiri Mountain…but there is no use of being in sadhana without trekking Velliangiri Mountain…Its like u dig a gold mine n hit on gold but return without excavating gold….
