Reach the pinnacle of human existence and deliver yourself towards complete liberation for achieving heightened spiritual and physical powers and experiences under the esteemed guidance of the great yoga luminary Shwaasa Guru Sri Vachananand Swamiji.
The Concept And Meaning Of ‘Isthalinga’
The word “Linga” or “Isthalinga” in simple words stands for ‘an outline, a shape, or a form’. It is a sacred piece of an object formed of light granite hued slate stone. The stone has the immense power to create electricity when activated. It is the most vital element for conducting an effective practice of ‘Isthalinga Meditation’. In order to keep the power of the stone contained, a paste composed of special ingredients is caked on the layer of the stone.
The color of this adhesive is indigo, ultramarine, or mid-night blue, representing the color of the creator, Lord Shiva. The shape of Isthalinga holds exacts resemblance with that of Lord Shiva’s Third Eye located right between his eyebrows. The purpose of this Isthalinga is to activate the Third Eye Chakra, also known as the Agneya Chakra through the method of Isthalinga Meditation for spiritual awakening and achieving the highest power of the invaluable cosmic intelligence. The hue of the coated paste and the color of the Agneya Chakra (Third Eye) located between the eyebrows react with each other owing to the similarity of their form and composition. This reaction creates a surge of electromagnetic waves activating the pineal gland that is situated in the third cavity of the brain (the cerebral aqueduct), a gland which remains dormant otherwise for a lifetime.
Isthalinga can be made in various forms. Some people create Isthalinga from mud wherein they create and resurrect the Isthalinga from the same or a fresh mold of mud as part of the Isthalinga Meditation process. At Shwaasa, our Guru makes the use of specific herbs on the Ishta Isthalinga for enhanced and more focused meditation practice.
Isthalinga Meditation requires the use of consistent and intense concentration on an object, akin to the technique of Trataka Meditation. Usually, a candle light, an oil lamp, or camphor is used during the practice.
Relation Between Isthalinga Meditation And Pineal Gland
A human being, complex as he is, is blessed with a great legacy ‘Sense’ – the sense of being, the sense of touch, taste, smell, and listening. Each of these senses is transmitted through specific channels, interplayed by individual glands in a human body. The sense of being, the sense of thought are transmitted by the pineal gland in our body. Sited in the third cavity of the brain, the capacity and function of this gland has been a unique object of research and discussion for Scientologists and Gurus since ages. Scientists agree that the pineal gland is a precise representation of the Third Eye (akin to the third eye of Lord Shiva). However, it is completely dormant and inactive. And, it remains so throughout a lifetime, if not tapped. In addition to this reality, the experts also assert that owing to its cosmic composition, it is more than capable of growth and can be activated to its full potential. When activated, the ability of thought, intuition, analysis, prediction reaches the level of infinity and celestial intelligence is attained to its full potential, inaccessible by most humans. Even though the activation of this gland is not easily reachable by an ordinary human being, it is possible through a dedicated and inert process of Isthalinga Meditation. The entire method of Isthalinga Meditation is aimed at developing the pineal gland by performing Trataka Technique on the Isthalinga in the hand. When the pineal gland which is the gland of celestial intelligence awakens, the man reaches the height of their consciousness where the entire cosmic falls in sync with their existence. The ‘third eye’ which is a demonstration of the Agneya Chakra on the forehead is the root of spiritual awakening and can only be established by bringing the pineal gland into motion from its dormant state.
Established Advantages Of The Isthalinga Meditation Course At Shwaasa
While the majestic benefits of Isthalinga Meditation are hard to put into mere words, the science behind Isthalinga Meditation goes beyond the ordinary interpretations and its benefits are just as eternal. Here is a small glimpse of what you shall experience and reap while undergoing the Isthalinga Meditation program at Shwaasa Yoga Center:
Vachanand Swamiji’s Isthalinga Meditation - ‘A Hymn To The Third Eye’
Swamiji has always believed in making nature a part of all the processes and practices he does as well as teaches. He believes in being close to Mother Earth and encourages his students to include as much nature as they can during their meditation.
Isthalinga Meditation technique aims at stirring the inactive pineal gland in most feasible and effective manner. The method is scientific and highly powerful. It has the capacity to alter a basic human nature into a divine being.
While most of the Isthalingas are made from mud, Swamiji developed a unique technique. He has introduced the concept of Isthalingas made from various special herbs. When you concentrate on the Isthalinga on your hand, you are benefitted by the herbs. Also, when you close your eyes and finally visualize the Isthalinga on your Third Eye chakra, you feel a special sensation, which the other Isthalinga meditation practitioners don’t. The power of the special herbs is so wonderful that you feel ecstatic, even though you are doing nothing but your usual Third Eye or Ajna Meditation.
The Isthalinga Meditation Program With Swamiji
The salient objective of Isthalinga Meditation Program at Shwaasa is to lead towards the awakening of the dormant pineal gland through a highly meticulous, evolved, and a definitive process of Isthalinga Meditation. The aim is to help the students transcend: from humane to divinity.
As the Agneya Chakra and the Pineal Gland activate, you shall also experience the awakening of Kundalini Energy lying inside you. Our Guru Swami Vachanandaji takes each student through a highly transformative journey through a series of transcendental experiences during the tenure of the program.
While undergoing the Isthalinga Meditation Program with Swamiji, the journey of each student spans in three demonstrated processes – Kala, being the first stage; Bindi being the second, and Nada, being the third. During the ‘Kala’ stage, we shall take you through the practice of worshipping the Ishta-Isthalinga which is coated with a specially formulated paste fused with specific herbs prepared by the Guru himself. This formulation takes you towards more enhanced and heightened experiences during the worship.
During the second stage, through the Trataka technique, gazing at the core of the Isthalinga shall be practiced through a series of pre-modulated steps. At this stage, Bindu (speck of light) is located at the Isthalinga wherein electromagnetic waves are generated. These waves collide with the Pineal Gland and the Brow Chakra in the body. By the conclusion of the program, you shall experience a ray of light surging through the entire body. You feel luminous and radiant from deep within. You feel reborn and closest to the divine.
