Isha Institute of Inner Sciences celebrates grand opening in the US

21 June, 2006

Tennessee, June 21, 2006: The Isha Institute of Inner Sciences in North America, established under the auspices of Isha Foundation, officially celebrated the grand opening of its center on June 21, 2006. Founder Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, a yogi and profound mystic of our times, graced this significant occasion and welcomed over 350 meditators from various countries.

The institute, situated and spread over 1300 acres in the Cumberland Plateau, in Tennessee, will serve as a retreat center for advanced programs offered by Isha, a wellness rejuvenation center, and a residential community for international meditators. Most importantly, it will be a sacred space where spiritual seekers can deepen their quest under the guidance of one of the adept yogis alive today. In that sense, the center will also be unique in offering spiritual methods in North America that have been developed over thousands of years among the yogic circles in India. In his opening remarks Sadhguru said, "this is a step to create a space that will witness mystical dimensions that have never been witnessed in this part of the world".

To effectively serve a seeking population of millions in the Western world, the institute plans to construct a 33,000 sq. ft. monolithic dome structure that will allow over 1000 people at a time to participate in the programs. This program facility and most of the other structures that are being planned will be built with the support of volunteers who have been such a critical part of establishing this center. As an acknowledgment of this, Sadhguru remarked: "All the work that they do is in dedication to create a space for self-transformation for seekers and for the future generations." Noting the dedication of the volunteers, he concluded, "it is a privilege when you get an opportunity to create something much bigger than yourself, it is always a great privilege".
