Irrespective of where you are at Isha Yoga Centre, whatever direction you are facing , you can very strongly feel the presence of Snakes (read king cobra) in various forms – be it on lamps, on walls, on pillars, at SuryaKund,at DhyanaLinga . On inquiring I got to know that Sadhguru consider snakes,especially King Cobra as the most sensitive animal/reptile when it comes to Meditative energy. Sadhguru has also mentioned about this in his book Mystic Musings.
Besides, since the Velliangiri Hills, where Isha Yoga Centre is situated , is reportedly home to king Cobras.Since they are the original inhabitants of the place, so in a way Sadhguru has paid tribute to them.
Luckily , I too spotted a beautiful water snake, live one, swimming his way through lotus in the pool in between Nandi & SuryaKund.
First thing first, of all the locations/energy spots at Isha Yoga Centre mentioned above , Linga Bhairavi temple definitely needs another mention as I spent maximum time there , not exactly by choice though. I mean there is something really very magnetic over there, something very soothing and very very positive which just keeps on pulling you towards itself and you just can’t resist going there.
Sitting right in front of Linga Bhairavi Devi, I could actually meditate for the longest time. More than the duration, its the feeling that engulfed me while Meditating there.On one hand I was kind of blank,absolute calm while at the same very time I could feel extreme joy and the unfamiliar sort of power from within.Till the last day, I could not get enough of meditation at Linga Bhairavi Temple.That mystic feeling is still there with me.
As for the Dhyanalinga , I had read so much about it before going to Coimbatore that I had almost made up my mind in advance that as and when I will sit around Dhyanalinga , I will feel something out of the world,something really divine.But , honestly & unfortunately , I didn’t feel anything of that sort there. Yes, the whole ambiance around Dhyanalinga is very peaceful and calm with everyone sitting in Sadhna completely in peace and I too sat there again & again ,atleast 8-9 times in 3 days to have that out of the world feel which some people have written online, but probably I was not that fortunate enough. In fact,as I have mentioned above, I could feel the strange energy Goosebumps (giving a feeling of extreme joy ) at Linga Bhairavi temple and even while chanting mantras at SuryaKund too but not at Dhyanalinga.
Time to answer some questions as promised at the start of the blog :
