The consecration event of Adiyogi: The Abode of Yoga at Isha Institute of Inner-sciences in Tennessee is currently underway. This powerful consecrated space has been created in alignment with Sadhguru’s vision of raising human consciousness, as well in recognition of Adiyogi and his contributions to humanity.
Below, learn more about 4 key aspects of Adiyogi: The Abode of Yoga, designed for the wellbeing and inner transformation of all:
1 – A Space for Inner Wellbeing
The science of creating powerful consecrated spaces for wellbeing has an ancient and rich history. Unfortunately today, these traditions and methods have largely been lost or forgotten, and in the Western world have remained unknown to the vast majority. One fundamental aim of the Adiyogi project is to manifest these consecrated spaces in such a way that they are not just available, but freely accessible to all, for current and for future generations.
Adiyogi: The Abode of Yoga has been specifically designed to support one’s wellbeing – simply by spending time within the energy of the space, one can begin to know the benefits of meditativeness and inward focus. Experiencing the space does not require any belief, worship, prayer or ritual, and is open to people of all ages, nationalities, religions and walks of life. Sadhguru has emphasized that it will be especially beneficial for individuals to be within the space during the first 48-day period following the completed consecration process.
2 – Opening Up A Higher Possibility
A common question relating to the Adiyogi project arises in regards to the focus on Adiyogi. If the space has not been created for worship or religious purpose, then why does it prominently feature this individual? Below, Sadhguru explains the significance of Adiyogi as an example for humanity, opening up a possibility of experiencing life beyond sadness, struggle and stress.
Sadhguru: “The Adiyogi brought the possibility that a human being need not be contained in the defined limitations of our species. There is a way to be contained in physicality but not to belong to it. There is a way to inhabit the body but never become the body. There is a way to use your mind in the highest possible way but still never know the miseries of the mind. Whatever dimension of existence you are in right now, you can go beyond that – there is another way to live.
He said, ‘You can evolve beyond your present limitations if you do the necessary work upon yourself.’ And he gave methods as to how to evolve. That is the significance of the Adiyogi. Before I fall dead, I want to make sure that His contribution to humanity is recognized across the world.”
3 – Offering Simple and Powerful Yogic Methods
Every visitor to the space will have the option of a learning simple yogic methods which can be continued at home, with benefits not only for physical health, but also as a step towards inner wellbeing.
Sadhguru: “Adiyogi gave 112 ways a human being can attain to the Ultimate. We want to simplify this and offer you 112 things that you can do. Out of this, you just have to do one thing. This will transform your life in the simplest possible way.
Everyone who comes to an Adiyogi space can pick from these 112 options the one thing they want to do and start with a three-minute sadhana. Everyone can invest three minutes. If it works for them, they can gradually increase the duration to 6, 12, or 24 minutes. We want to establish this within the next decade that irrespective of caste, religion, gender, or physical condition – everyone will have a simple spiritual process in their lives.”
4 – Building an Infrastructure of Consciousness
While the Adiyogi center will certainly become a landmark for yoga in the Western hemisphere, the space will also provide a key towards developing an infrastructure of consecrated spaces around the country. Creating this network of energized spaces will provide much-needed support towards the effort of raising human consciousness worldwide.
Sadhguru: “These 21-foot-tall statues of Adiyogi are part of this effort…Each of these Adiyogi statues will come with a structure of 111 feet by 111 feet and a 2-1/2-feet tall consecrated linga. These will be powerful energy spaces for meditation. The first ones are coming up in North America – one near the US Tennessee ashram [Isha Institute of Inner-sciences], one near San Jose, one in Seattle, one in Toronto. Many other cities are examining this possibility too. Our idea is to set up 50 in the United States – one for each state.”
The project is also currently taking shape throughout India with Adiyogi statues planned in major cities at the 4 corners of the country.
