Why Dhyanalinga ?
Fundamentally, there are five basic bodies, or there are five sheaths to the body: the physical body, the mental body, the energy body, the "etheric" body, and the bliss body.
If one brings about a certain transformation through the physical body, the mental body or the energy body, this transformation is temporary and can be lost in the course of life. However, once a person is touched on the level of the etheric body the transformation is eternal.
Dhyanalinga transforms a person who comes into its sphere on the level of the etheric body.
Even if a person who doesn't know anything about meditation comes and sits in this space, he will become meditative by his own nature. That is the quality of the Dhyanalinga. That's the kind of tool it is.
When you meditate, there is a distance between you and the body, you and the mind. Once this quality flowers within you, you will be like an emperor within yourself. That would be the end of suffering.
During the consecration of the Dhyanalinga, through an intense process of prana prathista ¹, energies of all the seven chakras ² were raised 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.
Today, like never before, there is a spiritual longing in people worldwide. If, within a human being, a longing to know, a longing to grow, a longing to go beyond present limitations arises, the energies of the Dhyanalinga will naturally reach out.
Dhyanalinga is an unprecedented possibility for the world, an energy center of tremendous proportions and a space where transformation from limited to resplendent unbounded can happen in an instant.
"As the spiritual longing and thirst arises in human beings, wherever they may be, irrespective of time and space, the energies of Dhyanalinga will become available to them as a spiritual ignition, as a spiritual guidance, and a spiritual force which will lead them on. It is not essential that all of them have to come here and sit in the Dhyanalinga." - Sadhguru
