The basic thrust of the energies of the Dhyanalinga is to foster spiritual growth and evolution of a person. However, the Dhyanalinga radiates seven different qualities of life on the seven days of the week by which one may derive various benefits.

Sadhguru: The fundamental difference between Dhyanalinga and other lingas that you normally see is that there is no worship, ritual, or offerings for the Dhyanalinga. It is a “Dhyanalinga” – a meditative force. All that you are required to do is just sit there quietly to experience and imbibe the energies. Once a person is in the sphere of Dhyanalinga, he cannot escape the sowing of the spiritual seed of liberation within himself.

Fundamentally, Dhyanalinga’s energies are primordial in nature. It is essentially a spiritual process, but because people invariably need material help and benefit, those aspects have also been made available in an expression of the exuberance of the seven chakras.

Chakras are a meeting point for the energy systems, where the pranic nadis meet to create an energy vortex. There are many chakras in the body, but generally, when we say “chakras” we are referring to the seven important chakras, which represent seven dimensions of life. They are like seven major traffic junctions. This does not mean that a chakra by itself has its own quality, it is just that all roads which travel in a direction are doing certain things and they come together at a certain point, so it becomes a powerful place.

In the Dhyanalinga, there is a certain cyclical system where different chakras are dominant on different days of the week. All the chakras are equally available on every day of the week, but on certain days, certain chakras are dominant. If people want to derive a particular benefit or influence upon their system, they can be there on that particular day to make use of that energy.

Qualities of the Dhyanalinga

The basic thrust of the energies of the Dhyanalinga is to foster spiritual growth and evolution of a person. However, the Dhyanalinga radiates seven different qualities of life on the seven days of the week by which one may derive various benefits.

Monday: Earth being the tattva[1], this element stirs the spiritual energies in the most fundamental way and helps one rise beyond the limitations of food and sleep. It helps in cleansing the doshas[2] in the body and mind and removes the fear of death. It firmly establishes one within the body and also the world outside. The day is most conducive to the aspiration of people seeking to make a spiritual beginning. It is the root of all growth and brings awareness of the divinity in man.

Tuesday: Water being the tattva, it provides the fluidity to create one’s life the way one wants. It helps in procreation, imagination, intuition, and mental stability. It is a very good day for healing one’s inner ailments.

Wednesday: Fire being the tattva, it creates a zest for life. It brings physical balance and a deep understanding of the body. It hastens the dissolution of karmic bondage.

Thursday: Air being the tattva, freedom becomes the way. It is an important day for seeking the divine. It is a meeting and a balance of the lower and higher energies. Love and devotion become the qualities of the person. It is a very good day to shed karmic bondage.

Friday: Space being the tattva, limitlessness and freedom are the basic qualities, highly purifying for those who are suffering from any kind of negative energies and black magic. It develops memory, concentration, patience, self-confidence, and synchronicity with nature. It lowers the dependence on food and water.

Saturday: Being the Maha tattva, it is beyond all duality. It leads to knowledge and enlightenment. Peace is the dominant quality. It is very important for those seeking self-realization. It helps one to go beyond the five elements and allows the individual to attain viveka (wisdom). It brings one in tune with the cosmic laws and become one with everything.

Sunday: It marks the celebration of life beyond all senses. This is the best day to receive the Guru’s Grace and to break the illusion of the individual self.

It is Sadhguru’s vision that the Dhyanalinga be available to all, for generations to come.

    I feel truly enlightened with the knowledge and purpose of dhyanalinga towards my spiritual growth.Its existence and consecration in many ways are for our expansion towards the path of spirituality and I long for the day when I can embrace and drink in such energy. For now, I’m content with my progress towards attaining the grace of the creator with the guidance of sadhguru.
