There is the beautiful display of Yoga Center in 360 on website. The focal point of Isha Yoga Center is Dhyanalinga. Dhyana is a Sanskrit word which means meditation, and linga means form. Dhyanalinga is Yogic Temple consecrated using prana pratiishtha and is dedicated to meditation. Consecrated is mentioned in a blog by Sadhguru as “If you can make flesh or even a stone or an empty space into a divine possibility, that is called consecration”. Pratishtha also means Consecration. The process of enshrining the energy in such a way that it is available to the visitor is called the pratishtha or the consecration as mentioned in Dhyananlinga. . Prana Pratiishtha is a process which is performed in such a way that the energies are locked. The deities maintain their energies at a constant level and do not require rituals or any other means of re-energizing.
In Dhyanalinga, through an intense process of prana pratishtha, energies of all the seven chakras ³ were raised to the very peak and locked to prevent dissipation over time. Hence there are no poojas or rituals in the Dhyanalinga. It is expected that the energies of the Dhyanalinga will not dissipate for at least 5000 years. Anyone who comes into the sphere of Dhyanalinga cannot escape the sowing of the spiritual seed of liberation.
