Adi Yogi Project announced for the US at the Isha Institute of Inner-sciences in TN!
In May of 2013, Sadhguru announced that a powerful and energized space designed to support one’s meditative practices will be built at Isha Institute of Inner-sciences in TN in honor of Adi Yogi .
Adi Yogi is known as the first yogi, first guru and originator of yogic science. Adi Yogi was the first to introduce the knowledge and technologies for human beings to evolve beyond their current limitations. Sadhguru wishes to make this knowledge and these tools more available to people around the world in an effort to raise human consciousness.
The Western Hemisphere is open to the idea of yoga but where it originated and the role it has in raising human consciousness has been almost missing in this part of the world. Introducing Adi Yogi to the West will help bring awareness about the depth of what yoga and meditation have to offer one’s wellbeing and is an opportunity to make a significant impact on the world. Sadhguru recently shared that if we can get the United States to meditate the rest of the world will follow easily.
The structure will be built with two levels and using materials which will ensure this space will last for thousands of years. A central feature will be the 21 foot metal statue of Adi Yogi and a powerful copper lingam with which one will be able to make physical contact. The design and layout will be in alignment with cosmic properties. The building will be 111 feet by 111 feet for each of the two levels, 12321 each and 24642 square feet total. A space will also be created for Devi on the lower level of the complex.
Work to prepare the site has already begun at iii.
We encourage everyone to be involved in making this happen by whatever means are available whether it be your head, hands or heart. Fill out the Adi Yogi Project Support form to express your willingness to be involved in making Adi Yogi Project at Isha Institute of Inner-sciences a reality.
