[Lotus Offering at Dhyanalinga]
In Indian spirituality, a lotus is a symbol for spiritual growth. Fresh lotus flowers can be offered at the jalaseema, the water body surrounding Dhyanalinga.
Anyone who comes into the sphere of the Dhyanalinga cannot escape the sowing of the spiritual seed of liberation.
“Dhyana” in Sanskrit means meditation and “linga” means the form. Dhyanalinga is a profound meditative space that does not ascribe to any particular belief or faith, and requires no ritual, prayer or worship. A powerful and unique energy form, Dhyanalinga is a doorway to enlightenment and spiritual liberation. In the metaphysical sense, Dhyanalinga is a guru, offering spiritual seekers the opportunity to do spiritual practices in the utmost intimacy of a live guru, something traditionally available only to a few.
Though it has always existed in the yogic lore, there is no reference to a Dhyanalinga in the scriptures. It has always been the dream of many enlightened beings, but the complexities involved in its creation are such that it rarely materialized. The closest attempt to consecrate a Linga like this took place almost one thousand years ago in Bhopal, India. The process, though grand, failed in the final stages.
Today, we are fortunate to be alive as its phenomenal presence graces the world. Dhyanalinga was consecrated by Sadhguru on 24 June 1999, after three years of an intense process of prana pratishtha – a pure energy process wherein the energies of all seven chakras are raised to the peak and locked to prevent dissipation over time. On 23 November 1999, Dhyanalinga was offered to the world.
