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.

This can be a great place with not much fun n frolic. This is more like a religious centre where one is sent in batches to the meditation room. Elderly people may find it difficult climbing up the stairs everwhere. Even for entering the centre one has to climb some 30 steep steps which are difficult even for some youngsters... More

beautiful, peaceful place.24 kms from Main city, midst of mind blowing greenery you could spend 2 hours of peacefullness, can take a dip in the holy water and enjoy the serene peaceful ambiance. Do not forget to taste the ELLURUNDAI, one of temples prasadam.

Visited this place having heard a great deal about the founder and the overall place. The entire place has been designed to awe the average visitor.. Designer bhakti at its best - abstract murals, ambience engineered to invoke faith. More attuned to attract the youth and foreign populace... The Dhyanalinga is a huge designer shiva lingam in a big hall...... More

Ideal place for a short visit only for having a look at the famous setup which is well advertised.. …It is well managed but definitely not a peaceful place for meditation….. Before we enter into the "DYANALIGA" mandapam there is holy bath for all. After the bath we finally enter into the into the main "DYANALINGA". I nor my wife... More
