WHAT IS THE CONCEPT OF DHYANLINGA ?IS THERE A DIFFERENCE FROM OTHER LINGAS?..SHIVA-19
THE CONCEPT OF DHYANLINGA;-
1-Most people are not aware of the depth of mysticism and spiritual process that has happened and still continues to happen in India. This land has always been known as the spiritual capital of the world, simply because no other culture has looked at the inner sciences with as much depth and understanding as this culture has. In this culture, liberation or mukti has been the highest goal – even God has been considered just a stepping stone towards that. 2-In terms of bringing the spiritual process into practical life, a few yogis managed to quietly change the landscape. Agastya Muni was the most effective. The Indian people are still enjoying the benefit of what he did. He touched every human habitation and made sure the spiritual process became a living culture – not just a teaching, not just a philosophy, but a way of life. The whole society was structured such that the moment you were born in India, your life was not about your business, your wife, your husband or your family – your life was only about mukti. 3-In this context, many kinds of powerful devices were created. There is a whole science of temple building, where a temple can become an enormous field of energy, a sea of energy. You must see some temples in India. You don’t have to believe in any gods. If you are a little sensitive, you can just sit there, and it will activate you from within. 4-The building of temples became such a huge process in South India that many temples were built, massive ones. Even if you just look at the physical architecture of the temples, the brilliance behind it is unbelievable. Temples were always built such that the temple would be grand and huge, but the people who built it were not living in palaces. They lived in little huts and it did not matter to them because they knew that the temple would be a tool for human well-being and liberation. Everything else was not important. This is the way the whole culture was created. 5-Unfortunately, the spiritual culture we see in India today has in many ways been broken by invasions, and distorted by long spells of extreme poverty. Much has been dislocated, but the basic ethos and backbone of the spiritual process is still not broken, and it cannot be broken. It is time that we reestablish this in its full glory once again, but it cannot be done the same way as it was in the past. Today people are much more logical, and much more science-oriented. 6-With the way education is impacting people, a spiritual process will not mean anything to people unless it is offered as a science. The science of yoga does not demand any kind of trust in a philosophy or a person. No belief is needed, no faith is needed – and it works. This is one system that has been practiced for thousands of years, and in terms of physical health, mental health and spiritual wellbeing of a person, it works. In this sense, in many ways, the future of the world is in yoga. 7-When we say ‘spiritual process,’ it is not about gods, not about pooja, not about any such thing. It means that something beyond your physicality has become a living reality for you. A nonreligious, scientific spiritual process is the need of the hour. It is the need of the century, the need of the millennium, the need of eternity.” WHAT IS A DHYANLINGA ?-
1-In the Dhyanalinga, through an intense process of prana prathista, energies of all the seven chakras are raised to the very peak and locked to prevent dissipation over time. Hence there are no poojas or rituals in the Dhyanalinga. It is expected that the energies of the Dhyanalinga will not dissipate for at least 5000 years. 2-At the base of the Dhyanalinga is a tub filled with etheric substances, called the 'Veerya sthana', comprised mainly of mercury solidified through methods of Indian alchemy. There is a cylindrical column at the center of the Linga about one inch in diameter, called the Linga Randra, which contains a copper tube filled with mercury, called the Linga Danda. 3-The consecration process lasts a long ( over three years )and people involve in the consecration undergo intense sadhana, overcoming the limitations of the body and the mind to energize the Dhyanalinga. The practices and processes take them to realms beyond the physical and mental dimensions. They sustain certain states of samadhi, where contact with the body is minimal. 4-Usually, during prana prathista, people involve in the consecration use their own physical and energy bodies as tools for the process of the consecration. As a result, it becomes difficult for the people involve in the consecration to retain their physical bodies after the consecration (abhishek ) process is over.. 5-In 1994, Sadhguru described the Dhyanalinga.The Dhyanalinga is a yogic temple and a space for meditation, the consecration of which, Sadhguru stated was his life's mission entrusted to him by his guru. , The Dhyanalinga was completed on 23 June 1999 and opened to the public on 23 November. DIFFERENCE OF DHYANLINGA WITH OTHER LINGAS;--
05 FACTS;- 1-The fundamental difference between Dhyanalinga and other lingas that you normally see is that there is no worship, ritual, or offerings for the Dhyanalinga. It is a “Dhyanalinga” – a meditative force. All that you are required to do is just sit there quietly to experience and imbibe the energies. Once a person is in the sphere of Dhyanalinga, he cannot escape the sowing of the spiritual seed of liberation within himself. 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. 2-Fundamentally, Dhyanalinga’s energies are primordial in nature. It is essentially a spiritual process, but because people invariably need material help and benefit, those aspects have also been made available in an expression of the exuberance( the quality of being full of energy, excitement, and cheerfulness) of the seven chakras. 3-Chakras are a meeting point for the energy systems, where the pranic nadis meet to create an energy vortex. There are many chakras in the body, but generally, when we say “chakras” we are referring to the seven important chakras, which represent seven dimensions of life. They are like seven major traffic junctions.
4-This does not mean that a chakra by itself has its own quality, it is just that all roads which travel in a direction are doing certain things and they come together at a certain point, so it becomes a powerful place. 5-In the Dhyanalinga, there is a certain cyclical system where different chakras are dominant on different days of the week. All the chakras are equally available on every day of the week, but on certain days, certain chakras are dominant. If people want to derive a particular benefit or influence upon their system, they can be there on that particular day to make use of that energy. THE QUALITIES OF THE DHYANALINGA;- The basic thrust of the energies of the Dhyanalinga is to foster spiritual growth and evolution of a person. However, the Dhyanalinga radiates seven different qualities of life on the seven days of the week by which one may derive various benefits.
07 FACTS;- 1-Monday: Earth being the tattva , this element stirs the spiritual energies in the most fundamental way and helps one rise beyond the limitations of food and sleep. It helps in cleansing the doshas in the body and mind and removes the fear of death. It firmly establishes one within the body and also the world outside. The day is most conducive to the aspiration of people seeking to make a spiritual beginning. It is the root of all growth and brings awareness of the divinity in man. 2-Tuesday: -Water being the tattva, it provides the fluidity to create one’s life the way one wants. It helps in procreation, imagination, intuition, and mental stability. It is a very good day for healing one’s inner ailments. 3-Wednesday: Fire being the tattva, it creates a zest for life. It brings physical balance and a deep understanding of the body. It hastens the dissolution of karmic bondage. 4-Thursday: Air being the tattva, freedom becomes the way. It is an important day for seeking the divine. It is a meeting and a balance of the lower and higher energies. Love and devotion become the qualities of the person. It is a very good day to shed karmic bondage. 5-Friday: Space being the tattva, limitlessness and freedom are the basic qualities, highly purifying for those who are suffering from any kind of negative energies and black magic. It develops memory, concentration, patience, self-confidence, and synchronicity with nature. It lowers the dependence on food and water. 6-Saturday: Being the Maha tattva, it is beyond all duality. It leads to knowledge and enlightenment. Peace is the dominant quality. It is very important for those seeking self-realization. It helps one to go beyond the five elements and allows the individual to attain viveka (wisdom). It brings one in tune with the cosmic laws and become one with everything. 7-Sunday: It marks the celebration of life beyond all senses. This is the best day to receive the GOD'S Grace and to break the illusion of the individual self.
