The Legend of Dhyanalinga – A 15,000 Year History – Sadhguru


Many thousand years ago, there was a yogi whose name was Sunira; we believe Sunira was just the
next generation after the Saptarishis. He lived and worked in the mountains which are presently in Nepal and he took on an impossible project. Sunira saw that human consciousness could be evolved if you produce a perfect human being
who could render this to all sorts of people. In a way he comes from the tradition of Shiva; somewhere it’s his dream
to build another being like that. He wants to build a living Shiva once again,
a perfect teacher for the world who… who is completely multi-dimensional, not this kind of teaching or that kind of teaching. As Shiva gave… explored the whole human
consciousness and human body in every possible way, he wants that kind of a living being. So he started building the energy body for that kind and then he believed that he could
build a physical body on top of that and let him loose in the world with a lifespan of a few hundred or thousand years so that he will transform the whole world
by the time his time is done; So he started working on this project and
of course he died unfulfilled. So here and there, down these 40,000 years many ambitious yogis picked up the
same project that Sunira had left and tried to reconstruct this energy body of a perfect
teacher who can transform human consciousness. They called him Mythreya. Mythreya means a friend. A true friend to the humanity, to come and
change humanity – the world teacher. Generation after generation many yogis tried
to continue to work on the same half-made project of Sunira. It’s always been in the yogic lore
but in the last century it came to the surface; it came to social knowledge because the theosophists worked on it. Annie Besant, Leadbeater and Madame…
whatever her name, I can never pronounce… Blavatsky (Laughs) all three of them took this project up. They said we are going to make it. They amassed a vast amount of occult knowledge. Probably for the first time in the last few hundred years and definitely for the first time, not in a traditional way but in a modern way, they took up this project and they tried to locate this being. This unfinished project they want to
take it up and complete it. Some work was done. They had the knowledge
but they did not have the capability. They acquired much information but they could not
acquire the necessary means to do anything like that. Twice they made serious effort to simply declare that they have completed the project,
the perfect being has come, but it did not work. Another parallel line was also being drawn for the last couple of millenniums where another set of yogis who are aware of this
Sunira’s glorious, but quite impossible project. They started working upon a similar force to create a similar possibility but with a completely different
understanding of the same. Creating a perfect being, but not as a human being not in human form, because putting it into a human being,
a such a possibility… Human system has all the capabilities, but still it doesn’t have the necessary
integrity of boundary to hold it. There are previous experiences of creating
or attempting to create Dhyanalingas in many places. Any number of projects have started in the
last two thousand, three thousand years and they have been abandoned half way because
of some problem or the other. In Bhojpur they attempted a Dhyanalinga
about a thousand years ago… little more than thousand years ago. This was supported by a local king, so it was hugely funded and they built a magnificent temple which is half done and the rest of the plans they drew it on the stone, you know, because there were no drawing boards. They flattened up a rock and they made an
elaborate plan of the temple in all detailed architectural thing on the stone,
they had a grand plan. A beautiful setting and everything. But half completed it stopped because of certain things. The lingam itself, they worked on it
for more than three years, they had fourteen people working on it,
one yogi who started this whole process. But this yogi worked for two years to produce these fourteen people seven men and seven women of enormous or extraordinary accomplishment,
and they started working. They created this lingam
almost ninety-five percent done. but at that time an invasion happened. The invaders who came found these people in certain states which,
whatever, looked freakish for them and they attacked. When they attacked, his left foot was chopped off. Because of this damage in the body,
he could not continue So he decided, they will merge themselves into the
lingam and complete the work. They asked another yogi,
trained another yogi to lock the energies These yogis left their bodies
and merged into the lingam. But the other yogi who was supposed to do this was so
overwhelmed by the situation that he could not lock it Because they did not lock it in time,
the lingam just cracked up. Even now you can see, it is a straight crack in the
lingam, about three to four inches has just opened up, now they patched it up with lime. The archeological department has
patched it up with lime but it just cracked. Building such structures has been the want of many yogis because creating tools for enlightenment, not just as teachings, not just as practices that one can
do but living tools that people can walk through, living tools by which people can be
impacted towards that process has always been the great desire of the yogis. One of them who had such a desire,
fixed me up for the job. My physical proximity with him was just for a few minutes. it is in these few moments that this fabulous crafty man enslaved me for his project. Everything that I did was around it because it was my Guru’s dream and it was his vision that the
Dhyanalinga has to be established This is my Guru’s will and grace I think I must tell you something about the madness from where I come… (Laughs) After two lifetimes of heart breaking sadhana, very intense, truly heart breaking sadhana, these two lifetimes I was referred to
by people as Shiva Yogi. And.. And when it was needed, when my Guru appeared… and when he felt he… that he did not feel fit to touch me, —
he touched me with his stick (Laughs) and everything that needs to be realized was realized. I was at the very peak of anything can be. So, that being was referred to as Shiva Yogi, trying to fulfill the mission that was put into him. Didn’t work. Came back again, as Sadhguru Shri Brahma, tried very hard, almost successful but couldn’t fix the goodwill in the society because the intensity of who he is could not be understood
in the social circumstances. So, he couldn’t fulfill that. He prepared a few people and
then went up the mountain. He was checking himself, why has he failed? He’s got everything. Why is it, it didn’t happen? He knew it’s not that he lacks the competence, it’s just that he did not garner
the social support that was needed. So he went up the mountain for the last time Before going up he announced here, at the foothills,
a few of his disciples gathered. They said what now? He said “Ivan thirupi varuvan”
that means “This one will be back again” and he went up the mountain for the last time and he did a rare thing. He left his body through all his seven chakras
at the same time. This is… He’s just checking himself, he knows it’s not so, but still the first blame
should be on you when something doesn’t work. So he’s checking, in case I’m not good
or I’m not good enough. So, he left his body through all his seven chakras. This phenomenal energy, this very distinct energy which is nowhere else, you can experience on the seventh hill. It’s very, very different from anything
that you would find anywhere. It’s distinctly different. So with that done, he knew its.. what is the problem is
you didn’t handle the circumstance properly. This round when we came, we planned everything to a point where we decided a few people that I need
where they are born, in which womb, how, everything was planned. It went accordingly. People needed for the consecration I placed them in the right kind of places so that
everything comes together at the right time. In spite of that, took it 18 years of preparation
in this life to put it together, to put the people together, to remind them of their past, to get them there. Now, this is too fairytale-ish for you, but
this is something that’s a living reality for us. So, the consecration process itself took
three-and-half years, a very intense process. People who witnessed these things,
their lives are never the same again. Things that they had not imagined in their
wildest dreams they witnessed, they still can’t believe that it
actually happened in their presence. Yogi Sunira, He worked through his lifetime and towards the end of his life when this dream of creating a perfect being remained unfulfilled, Yogi Sunira made a prophecy that long time from now, long long time from now, this work that I have started will find fulfillment and
reverberate, not here, but in the green hills of the South. Our hills are green (Laughs); we are in the South. So whatever Sunira’s prophecy has come true,
but not the way he thought it would Dhyanalinga is like a living guru The role of a guru in a spiritual seeker’s life is not just about giving teachings and guidance’s. The most fundamental thing why a spiritual seeker seeks a guru is because a guru can ignite his energies into a different dimension. That aspect of guru’s role in a spiritual seeker’s life
is very well fulfilled by the Dhyanalinga. Once a person is in the sphere of Dhyanalinga he cannot escape the sowing of the
spiritual seed of liberation within himself.

    Good day Sadhguru.
    This brings up so much emotions that I am having trouble describing.
    I believe anything is possible. Especially when the heart is pure. For some reason this sounds familiar to me. Currently im shivering in a heat wave. Your words just opened up something within me that thirsts for more. To become best being that I can become in this lifetime….is how you inspire me.
    All my gratitude and appreciation Sadhguru.
    Be well

    Happy for those who disliked. Atleast they peeped to see; Others didn't even see. Those people who peeped have that intensity. But now just it is blocked, or channled towards other way. Let us all pray that transformation happen to them fast. They will help more to spread this since they first negated this… the mind likes to compensate the mistake.

    After 2 lifetimes of heart breaking sadhana.
    Said, this one will be back again.
    This round when we came,we planned everything.
    Where they are born, in which womb, how…

    Reincarnation, in the experience of Sadhguru.

    The body dies, but the soul is eternal.
    You are not the body, you are not the mind, then what are you? You are the soul, spritual spark, that spiritual energy, which is encapsulated in and animates the material body.

    Go beyond the boundary and limitation of the material body. How? Sadhguru is showing the way, facilitating, giving opportunity to all to try and experience.

    if sadhguru is doing the consecration for 3 lifetimes then his story that he got enlightened on vellangiri mountains cant be true because he must be born enlightened and these stories which he told are fictional i am confused.

    So, even a very accomplished yogi or person, if not sufficiently armed by any means, he can be cut like a vegetable and all his achievements can be destroyed by a very strong aggressor [8:33 minutes]. Hindus beware! you were taken for a ride all the time throughout history, somehow nobody could able to destroy you completely. Atlast now, you are free.

    Why establishing a dhyanalinga is hard I mean it's a construction of a temple placing a linga in it that's all it is…and doing pranapratishta means some pujaa to make it a auspicious looking…but then why again it is difficult he is mentioning 1000s of years timeline….what exactly is dhyana Linga???

    I know why they all failed in this mission of creating a perfect human being they built a energy body but not a karmic body because they don't know the beginning and the end of it for example buddha took moksha from karma marga he is niramanakayas that is he can create is body whenever he wants if they had the help of niramanakayas they could have succeeded but not necessarily

    Thanks for the video; but I have a sincere request to all those who make Sadhguru's and Isha Foundn videos… Please either remove those unnecessary unrelated music tracks from most videos or at least lower their level to barely audible. They do NOT help the viewer in absorbing the content; in fact many a time they hinder and even become annoying. Please consider this. Regards.

    The earlier problem was there was a myth that if you read bhagwat gita you will leave your family you will leave all basic things which are required. But in Gita it's a story which still in modern generation it is used in day to day life. After knowing who i am ? how to control your thoughts?. How to be well being. Also the karma ( means all the responsibility which are there to get fulfilled wheather it's towards family, friends but spreading the Dharma to the people who doesn't know who they are ? ) Also krishna also says that karma par dhyan do jay aur parajay ki chinta mat karo. Here he also means that wheather it's battlefield or your normal day do your karma (responsibilities). So that's what I want to highlight on this myth thing.

    Definitely yes, parallel lines were been drawn. Hats off to Sadhguru's effort on making Dhyanalinga. But that's not all of it:

    In South Indian green hills of Arunachala was born Sri Nithyananda Paramshivam who is incarnation of Lord Shiva himself!

    Definitely, this side of parallel line also made it. What a great time to be with these great gurus.

    One needs the memories of past generation of death after death to ascend to final destination. One needs to be chosen you canโ€™t just volunteer. The spiritual will only know of your arrival
