More Information:

Isha Foundation is a nonprofit, spiritual organization founded in 1992 near Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India, by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev. It hosts the Isha Yoga Centre, which offers yoga programs under the name Isha Yoga. The foundation is run "almost entirely" by volunteers. The word isha means "the formless divine". He had a thought to establishment of Adiyogi statue worldwide which he is unveiling day by day. In India they are supposed to have 4 main establishment which is already started with Coimbatore, now the plan is to establish it in Banaras, Delhi and Mumbai respectively. He believes in 4-dimension energy forming throughout everything in this world so he wanted to place it in four corners of the nation.

Scenario OCTOBER 2022

In between he started this project near Bangalore because he thinks Bangalore has the most communicative city in respect to language (English) and it is easier to approach for a project like this to the people of Karnataka. He had taken a challenge to complete this task within 7 and half month whereas the Coimbatore project took 2 and half years to get completed. He is very much pleased and respectful towards all voluntary services got from the state people and team. Back the time it took more than 2 and half years for Sadhguru to think about the Adiyogi statue design, also he mentioned that more than 100 pictures they have created and come up with the final one which you are seeing it in Coimbatore and the respective locations. So he is going to inaugurate the biggest 4 dimension yoga center in India and unveiling Adiyogi statue in Chikballapur in 15th January, 2023 i.e Makar Sankranti.

Coming back to Chikballapur, this is basically a hilly village named Agalagurki which is having a divine and spiritual connection in its air. It cannot be felt until and unless you visit this place. 9th October 2022, they conduct a huge event called Naga Prathistam in the presence of Karnataka CM Bommai and health minister Dr K Sudhakar. I would Like to describe the whole concept of Naga Prathistam in Sadhguru’s word.

So in Yoga, Kala and Naga are two similar words. In Naga prathistam you will see a big rocky particle, it has four faces, in North and south you will find 112 kala sarpa (Snake) which represents removing unseen obstacles from one’s life. In East you will find Sesh (Reminder) naag. Sesh naga is the one, when galaxy collapse, Sesha is the reminder which is left over from the new creation. More previously the one which will connect to the next creation of earth carrying some information from the current one. In West you will find Big Kala sarpa statue with Infinite symbol in it. He symbolizes Kala sarpa (In kerala it is known as ananta sayana ) means eternity or infinity symbol which is facing Adiyogi statue. So Kala Sarpa is basically future protector of whole system of energy and geography. Basically Naga is a powerful deity of Isha foundation in Chikballapur. On 9th October, they completed abhishekam of Naga Stambha with 5 precious substances of our daily life. Those are Butter, Turmeric, Kum Kum, Asthi (carefully collected from the criminations ground) and Soil.

The significance of having 112 feet height is once there was a conversation between Shiva and Parvati where Parvati mentioned Shiva why there can't be more than 112 ways for a human to attain to his ultimate nature ? Shiva told there can be two possibilities, one is 112 way if you are rooted in the body or there are uncountable ways if you are not rooted in the body. So Sadhguru and team decided to create 112 feet statue as uncountable feet is not a solution anyways.

Unveiling Adiyogi program on 15th Jan

The entire event in Chikballapur has been divided into main 3 programmes. In morning 8:00 to 10:30 there was Yogeshwar Linga consecration program which was organised by Sadhguru himself. It has been considered With the presence of the Yogeshwar Linga, Adiyogi will become a living entity. There were Bhairav, Rudra, Jagadisha, Hara 4 sections from where one can observe and be a part of. The price were respectively 70000, 35000, 10000, 5000 per person. One could book the ticket from Isha Foundation website itself.

Next programme was Makar Sankranti where Sadhguru and teams celebrated the festival with local villagers along with various rituals, feeding animals which was held from 3:00 to 4:30 pm.

Next and most awaited events starts from 6:00 pm. which is unveiling Adiyogi statue. I am gonna go for this today. Let me give you a brief about the ticket price for specific sections in front of Adiyogi statue. There were Bhairav, Rudra, Jagadisha, Hara 4 sections where the price were respectively 25000, 5000, 1000, 500 per person. Also there were free areas which has been organised way far. This price chart was for unveiling Adiyogi only which conducted from 6:00 to 9:00 pm.
