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.

It is an excellent place to know what meditation is and how our indian culture is preserved and served to the public through the dreams of Sadhguru.

My husband, son and I have visited Isha Yoga Centre twice, after getting to know in 2014 about this wonderful and breathtaking ashram, lovingly designed by my Guru to embrace all types of beings.

Went to the temple early morning soon after it opens. The architecture is facsinating specially the brick dome.Meditated inside and felt tremendous energy in the form of warmth enveloping the entire body. There is total silence maintained ,there are cut outs in the wall surrounding the dhyanling where one can sit and meditate. A remarkable spiritual experience .

Everything thing looks artificial for me right from the infrastructures to poojas . Nothing to complaint as well as compliment. Things selling by them are too expensive. A matter to appreciate is their silence.

Its a very nice meditation center situated on the Semmedu, Coimatore. The Dhyanalingam is very peaceful and food at 10 is available in Biksha dining hall. Lots of shops situated there and selling posters, photos and other products. Worthy visit.

Thank anithaaravamuthan
