How Indian Temples Were Created – The Isha Blog

How Indian Temples Were Created – The Isha Blog

Happy New Year! There are many different ways folks celebrate the marking of a new year: some party, some clean their homes and invite family and friends to celebrate together, some attend religious programs in churches, synagogues,temples and mosques.  In this video post offered by Sadhguru and The Isha Foundation one can gain a little glimpse of the type of energy used to create Indian Temples.  India is a favorite destination for thousands of years for many of its riches.  Even today tourists flock to see the many World Heritage Sites which include Temples.  The Indian Temple is a Super Charging Station whereby one may go and sit to receive the tremendous waves of vibrations to wash over and into all aspects.  There are many Indian Temples in locales around the globe.  I keep a bucket list of Temple locations I hope to visit locally, and when traveling.  This year I hope to get back to Tennessee, where the newly installed AdiYogi Shrine/Temple has been inaugurated in 2015.  I also want to get to New Jersey where the BAPS Temple is in progress, I have visited the Akshadham BAPS Temple in Delhi, India and it would be great to have such a Temple, even if 1/100th of its original Indian parent-site.  I have previously mentioned my Temple Sister/Buddy-Nandini who always gets me to tag along for the Sai Baba Mandir(temple) in Flushing, Queens.  We always visit the Ganesh Temple two blocks away for blessings and canteen food!

If you are a yoga practitioner and have never had the experience of receiving blessings in an Indian Temple I encourage you to do so soon.  You will never be ostracized due to your ethnicity, gender, age, in fact you may be welcomed with a friendly curiosity and make some new friends easily.  Just wear clean, modest clothing and leave your shoes in the designated spaces.  OM, Shanti, Shanti, Shanti OM




Sadhguru explains how a temple is a tool to make the divine more manifestly experience-able.
