Enlightened beings, whose profound insight and awareness gave rise to a deep perception and understanding of life, engineered our culture in such a way that every aspect of our lives led to our liberation. Mukti was always the goal of every individual. Even the minutest details were examined and crafted to become a possibility for ultimate wellbeing. These aspects were woven into the very fabric of our culture which brought a certain inner stability to the life of every human being who was born in this land. <br /><br />However, people’s lifestyles today are increasingly oriented towards short-term and inevitably unsustainable benefits. The environment is suffering the brunt of humanity’s endeavors. Moreover, despite all the comforts and conveniences available today, many human beings suffer from deep mental and emotional stress. Despite outer wellbeing, inner wellbeing remains elusive for most of humanity. So it is extremely important that we bring about a culture where every human being on the planet invests a certain amount of time in his true inner wellbeing.</p> <div id="readmoretext"> <div class="introread" style="display: none;" onclick="document.getElementById('readmore2').style.display='block';document.getElementById('readmoretext').innerHTML=''">Read More</div> </div> <div id="readmore2" style="display: block;"><br /> <p><img src="../../../../../../../../../../../../../../../templates/isha/images/image-2.jpg" border="0" align="left" />In the past, powerfully consecrated spaces were the focal point around which societies grew and flourished. At the Isha Yoga Center, a community of almost 1000 people is flourishing and reviving our ancient culture to its former glory. Various aspects of our tradition such as dance, music and art forms –  which date back to thousands of years and were once integral to our culture – are being restored and made available to society. <br /><br />At the heart of the community is the Dhyanalinga Yogic Temple – an energy center of tremendous proportions. The dream of many enlightened beings, the Dhyanalinga is a powerful meditative space and<em> sthana,</em> which does not ascribe to any particular faith or belief system. Hundreds of thousands of people have been touched by the grace of the Dhyanalinga, which has brought a deep sense of peace and joy in their lives. The Dhyanalinga stands as a living promise to nurture innate spirituality and revive a glorious tradition.</p> <p>The Aadhi Yogi Aalayam is an integral element which will allow many more people to experience the Dhyanalinga. The Aalayam is an 82,000 sq. ft. column-less hall with a unique blend of ancient and contemporary architecture, built to accommodate thousands of people in one sitting. This space will be open to all who wish to receive an initiation into spiritual practices and integrate these inner sciences into their daily lives. These simple yet potent practices will bring forth the peace and joy that pervades the core of every human being.<br /><br />Once established in its full splendor, <img src="../../../../../../../../../../../../../../../templates/isha/images/image-3.jpg" border="0" width="149" height="188" align="right" /> the Aadhi Yogi Aalayam will offer the possibility for every individual, no matter what their background, to experience at least one drop of spirituality. The opportunity to be initiated into a spiritual practice in a consecrated space and under guidance of Sadhguru – an enlightened Master, is a rare privilege and should be made available to as many people as possible.
