How Consecrated Spaces Can Ignite Your Energies | Isha Hatha Yoga

If you create consecrated space, if maximum
number of people are constantly touched with consecrated spaces, you would see human beings
would blossom with a completely different sense of wholeness, homogeneity and organic way of
looking at life, above all full-fledged human beings, What living in a consecrated
space means is …this Isha Yoga Center is, I feel like the whole space is just so energetic
and so vibrant. I could just go throughout the day, keep going
and keep going without even a moment of tiredness… Sadhguru: “So consecration essentially means to
make a physical space reverberate with a non-physical dimension of energy. In a way
that’s what you are. This body is a physical thing. But right now it’s reverberating with a non-physical
dimension of energy, otherwise it cannot be alive for a moment.
If you know how to touch this, you don’t need any consecrated space, because “this” is
a consecrated space. But you are not able to touch this. So we want to create that kind of energy in a
more palpable way, where you can touch it, where you can feel it. So consecration is the science
of bringing THAT forth in such a way that it’s palpable that you can almost touch it. ”Every day before my Hatha Yoga practice I usually try
to take a dip in the Surya Kund, which is an energized body of water… I can definitely
feel a distinct difference when I take a dip and then do my Hatha Yoga practice. Sadhguru: The word Threeth means inflamed,
or energized water. We can energized water in different ways. As today there
is substantial science telling us that, water has memory. This is something that we have always known
in this culture. That water has memory, how you treat it accordingly it behaves within you.
The water that you you drink, the water that you get into, if you treat it in a
certain way, accordingly it behaves… responds to you in a certain manner. This body,
being over seventy percent water, if the water around you and the water that
you take in are pleasant or energized in a certain way, this entire system can change. If the water behaves well
within you, seventy-two percent of your problem is over. So theerthakund is an opportunity for people
to transform the waters within themselves. So, this is an energized pool it really bring
balance and stimulation to your nervous system without any stimulants above all it balances the
energy within you. The energy body comes to certain level of balance and rejuvenation. To enhance my experience of the Dhyanalinga I often
go to the Surya Kund, I stay there for some time and then go to Dhyanalinga, and I can see my
experience there, it’s much more powerful. Whenever I feel overwhelmed during the program I go
directly to Dhyanalinga. The moment I close my eyes in this place I become
meditative naturally, I don’t even try to meditate. It is really a privilege that we have a great support
system in the form of these consecrated spaces… It makes me more balanced and focused…” Sadhguru: What is unique about the Dhyanalinga is
that it is a manifestation of all the seven dimensions or the seven chakras.
When I say all the seven dimensions, the human physiology is constructed this
way. It is a meditative force. There is no worship, there is no ritual, there
are no offerings for the Dhyanalinga. All that you are required to do is sit there quietly,
one has to just simply sit there to experience and imbibe the energies of Dhyanalinga.
It’s a live form. It has everything. As an energy body it has everything as a peak
human being would have. Only a physical body is absent, but in all
other ways it is like a living guru. So, it is an opportunity for a spiritual seeker
to do his sadhana in the presence of a live guru, 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 a guru’s role in a spiritual seeker’s life is very well fulfilled
by the Dhyanalinga. Dhyanalinga can ignite one’s energies into
a completely new dimension of vibrance and possibility. “Whenever I have some free time I go there
because this place is full of life. Actually it took me a while to be able to
experience this consecrated space, but now I really enjoy sitting there, I just feel
happy, loved and sometimes overwhelmed with this feminine energy which is something I
cannot even describe in words. I feel like a sense of protection from the Devi and also
a sense of warmth which makes me feel really grounded and protected and it’s a really
nice experience. Sadhguru: If you want to experience Dhyanalinga,
you need awareness, you need alertness, you need to be meditative, sitting still. But if you
want to know Her, you need aliveness, you need exuberance of life, you need
madness of devotion. Out of all the Isha Yoga Center, we usually spend
most of our time in the Adiyogi Alayam, we eat there, we sleep there, we do our practices there…
I noticed whenever I am in the Adiyogi Alayam my practices happen in a completely different way.
No one’s there really to give me the correction but somehow, I have no idea how but somehow
the practices are getting corrected on their own… and just certain asanas that I really had a lot of
struggle with and… like specifically Matsyendrasana… like for a very long time I had
the flexibility to get my arm behind but just a few minor adjustments and changes
kind of allowed me get into the asana… and that’s something that is really unique
to Adiyogi Alayam. Sadhguru: The Adiyogi that we created in the
Adiyogi Alayam… was mainly created as a repository of hatha yoga.
It’s a… It’s little difficult to explain to you, how a form is a repository but today, it should be easy
for you to understand for this generation of people, it should be easier to understand, because today
you understand you can carry a small USB and you know this stick has lot of information in it.
So if this stick can store information, you can also store it in another form.
So this is a composite… Let’s call it a computer, if you like it that way.
It’s a composite computer, which is a certain storehouse of information, a certain storehouse
of energy, a certain storehouse of reverberation. Which will reverberate for a very very long time.
So, I thought it’s a fundamental responsibility to put hatha yoga in a certain repository,
which cannot be distorted, it’s always available. If there are people… If there is a person who is willing to
receive, he will know hatha yoga in its purest form not as it is taught, but as the way the system is. Hatha
yoga is not something that you teach to somebody. It is something that you make somebody realize,
what is the nature and the geometry of his system. As he understands the geometry of his own making,
then he will find the right postures for himself, and invariably, it’ll be the same postures. Sadhguru: There is an intrinsic intelligence
and a competence here, right inside of you, which can make an apple into a human being.
If this has to blossom and find expression in many different ways, it needs a conducive
atmosphere. That is what is a consecrated space. If you create consecrated space, if maximum
number of people are constantly touched with consecrated spaces, you would see human beings
would blossom with a completely different sense of wholeness, homogeneity and organic
way of looking at life, above all full-fledged human beings, not lopsided human beings.
It must happen.
