The Dhyana Linga was consecrated by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, a mystic and realized Master, after three years of intense prana prathistha, using his own energies. The people involved in the consecration process underwent intense sadhana, overcoming the limitations of the body and the mind to energize the Dhyana Linga. Dhyana in Sanskrit means 'meditation',, and Linga means 'the form'.
As Sadhguru describes it, the linga-form allows energy to be brought to the highest intensity, at which it
can still retain a form. Beyond that, it moves into formlessness. During the consecration process, the energies of all the seven chakras were raised to the very peak and locked to prevent dissipation over time. It is expected that the energies of the Dhyana Linga will not suffer dissipation for at least 5000 years.

Just sitting silently for a few minutes within the sphere of Dhyana Linga is enough to make even those unaware of meditation experience a state of deep meditativeness and feel the divine energy that overflows from this glorious form. The physical form of Dhyana Linga--the black granite stone--was primarily used as a scaffolding for this energy form. Even if this were to be removed now, the energy that exists there cannot be removed or destroyed . It is eternally present and available to all.
Well, you will be amazed to look at the compostion of this Dhyana Linga. Measuring a height of 13 feet 9 inches, the Dhyana Linga is the largest Mercury-based live linga in the world. At the base of Dhyana Linga is a tub filled with etheric substances called the veeryasthana, comprising mainly Mercury solidified through methods of Indian alchemy. There is a cylindrical column at the center of the linga about one inch in diameter, called the lingarandra, which contains a Copper tube filled with Mercury, called the lingadanda.
Even though the primary purpose of the Dhyana Linga is spiritual liberation, all aspects of life are enshrined in its structure, in the form of seven chakras energized to the very peak and locked. Moreover, on each day of the week, the Dhyana Linga radiates a different quality, through which a visitor can derive a multitude of benifits. And here they are :
Monday : Earth being the tattva, the predominant energy on this day helps with fertility, childbirth, and cleansing the body and mind of doshas or impurities. It removes the fear of death and is most conductive to making a spiritual beginning.
Tuesday : Water being the tattva, the energy helps procreation, imagination, intuition and mental stability. It supports conjugal relationships and is very good for healing one's inner ailments.
Wednesday : Fire being the tattva, the energy aids in material wellbeing and health, particularly that of children below fours years of age. It nurtures selflessness, hastens the dissolution of karmic bondage, and brings a deeper understanding of the body.
Thursday : Air being the tattva, the energy assist those seeking the Divine. Love and devotion are the way. Radiance and innocence become the qualities of the person.
Friday : Space being the tattva, the energy is highly purifying for those who are suffering from the influence of negative energy, black magic, or disruptive vibrations. It develops memory, concentration, patience, self-confidence and synchronicity with nature.
Saturday : The Mahatattva, which is beyond all duality, reigns on this day. Therefore, the energy on this day leads to knowledge and enlightenment. Peace is the dominant quality, which is very important for those seeking self-realization. It allows the individual to attain viveka or wisdom.
Sunday : This day marks the celebration of life beyond all senses. This is the best day to receive Guru's Grace and break the illusion of the individual self.
Another feature of the Dhyana Linga temple is the Linga Bhairavi Temple, which is very significant too. Also, there are special events that take place every month on Amavasya(New Moon) and Pournami(Full Moon) days. One day before Amavasya is Shivaratri, when a process called Pancha-Bhuta Aradhana happens inside the Dhyana Linga temple. This process is aimed at the purification of the five elements and carries many other benefits. On Pournami every month, a special pooja happens in the Linga Bhairavi temple followed by an Utsav Moorti procession of the Devi and maha aarthi in front of the Dhyana Linga.
Every month hundreds of people come to the Centre to be a part of these events. Hope everyone visits this temple, as it is not just for god but also for yoga and spiritual strengthening and liberation.
