Owner description: 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.

Relaxation and peace of mind is restricted only inside that particular meditation centre.

Rest everyone outside, right from the parking guide staff, the vehicle staff who takes the elderly till the linga, staff who guides to the meditation centre, staff who manages the vehicle traffic just outside the entrance, most of them show a rude behavior. I don't know what frustration they have? Are they not paid well? Or they are not given proper food? I seriously can't understand the problem.. kindly train them to relax and speak softly. Even to elderly people they have NO manners of how to behave. I can at least forgive if 1 person speaks like that, but many of them around... It seriously spoils the entire mood. It was a horrible experience today.

Spent an entire day at this spiritually charged location. The visit to Adiyogi was very Divine. The experience of offering water to the Shiva lingas inside the suryakunda was a very spiritual experience. The aarati at the Linga Bhairavi temple and the opportunity to meditate at the Dhyanalinga completed a Divine day for me. The food at the food court was simple and tasty. Go visit this place if you want to spend some time away from the material world and indulge in some time connecting with higher energy.

During evening all the lamps on the outer wall are lit and gives the place a very aesthetic feel. Take a dip in Chandra kund and spend time here.
