Description: The Dhyanalinga is set amidst the foothills of the Velliangiri Mountains...
The Dhyanalinga is set amidst the foothills of the Velliangiri Mountains, the first of its kind to be completed in over 2000 years. This powerful meditative space does not ascribe to any particular faith or belief system nor does it require any ritual, prayer, or worship. In June 1999, Dhyanalinga was consecrated by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, a realized master, mystic and yogi, after three years of intense process of prana prathista (process of energizing an object using one's own life energies). Measuring 13' 9", Dhyanalinga is the largest mercury-based live linga in the world. All the aspects of life are enshrined in the form of seven chakras, energized to the very peak and locked to prevent dissipation over time. It is expected that the energies of the Dhyanalinga will not suffer dissipation for at least 5000 years. THEERTAKUNDS The Dhyanalinga features two Theerthakunds, which are subterranean tanks with solidified mercury lingas immersed in water, built as preparatory tools to enhance one's spiritual receptivity before entering the Dhyanalinga. The Theerthakunds, are very powerful by themselves. It straightens out the energy or the pranic imbalances in a person, which leads to physical and mental well-being. Above all, it creates a tremendous receptivity to imbibe the energies of Dhyanalinga. They are open for Gents and Ladies from 7:30AM to 8:00PM NADHA ARADHANA An offering of sound to the Dhyanalinga, Nadha Aradhana is an etheric blend of vocals, singing bowls, drums and various other instruments amplified within the reverberating Dome, transporting one into the timeless space of the Dhyanalinga. The offering takes place twice a day, from 11:50 am to 12:10 pm and from 5:50 pm to 6:10 pm. These times are recognized as special sandhya kalas for meditators. A sandhya kala is a phase when nature undergoes certain transitions and makes a person more receptive to inner possibilities. AUMKAR MEDITATION Visitors to the Dhyanalinga can further deepen their experience by attending this daily introduction to the timeless and powerful mantra "Aum." This meditation is known to have transcendental qualities. It can bring peace and balance to one's system, and is known to relieve people from numerous physical and mental ailments when practiced regularly. Aumkar meditation is offered daily from 12:30 pm to 1:00 pm.

The Theerthakund (sacred pool) at the Dhyanalinga Temple is not to be missed. This woman-only bath (the men have their own version) is a giant subterranean granite walled pool filled with sacred, healing water. After removing their clothes, rinsing in a shower and donning a saffron colored bathing shirt. Women walk silently down granite steps, to the hip-deep pool. In... More

An awesome place of lord shiva which invites all religion ppl with love. Very different type of way for darshan specially a bath and prey in a beautifully created pond. Whole temple looks bful and sounds silent. Yes silence is what most important in this place. Everyone should visit once in lifetime here.

It is important to be impressed by the unique non-religious perspective of Isha Foundation and visit this haven on earth. If you are a true seeker, you must visit not for the usual commerce or trading with the divine but for self cleansing and as a step to being truthful to oneself. There is plenty of material to read on... More

Visit to this temple was truly an experience. Its Huge, well maintained, silent, serene. Dont miss the holy dip in the tank where a mercury lingam is immersed. The silence and serenity provides a calming feeling to our mind. A modest eatery and shop with eco friendly and hand made products are well worth the visit.
