On December 23rd, a few Isha volunteers trekked up the Velliangiri Mountains, to experience the power and grace of this space where Shiva – the Adiyogi himself stayed for a period of time. Sadhguru tells us about the sages and seers who walked these mountains, and about the possibility that the mountain represents.

It’s not just mountains. This is a temple for us.
- Sadhguru


This Mountain is known as the Seven Hills because if you climb, there are seven undulations which make you feel like you are going up seven hills. The last peak is totally wind-blown – nothing grows there except grass. There are just three very huge boulders which have formed a shelter between themselves which is like a little temple with a small lingam. It is an incredibly powerful place.

So many beings, the kind of men that Gods would be envious of because they lived with such grace and dignity, have walked this Mountain. These great beings let the whole Mountain imbibe what they knew, and it can never be lost. This is also a Mountain where my Guru walked and the place he chose to shed his body. So for me and everybody here, it’s not just mountains, this is a temple for us. There is a tremendous amount of information here and for me, everything about how to consecrate the Dhyanalinga, was from here.

Earlier in December, Sadhguru spoke about Shivanga, a new sadhana which is being introduced for men, which involves a pilgrimage to the Velliangiris. More info on registration and participation in this sadhana can be found at the Shivanga blogpost.

    I would be grateful if you can organize such Trek for Meditators as well so that we also can derive benefits from trekking ” Velliangiri hills”.
