Coimbatore: Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu on Friday released 'Death – An Inside Story' authored by Sadhguru, Founder, Isha Foundation. The Vice-President was the chief guest at the 26th Maha Sivaratri celebrations at Isha Yoga Centre.
Earlier, Sadhguru accompanied the Vice President to the venue of Maha Sivaratri celebrations. Sadhguru welcomed Venkaiah who visited Linga Bhairavi and the Dhyanalinga Yogic temple at the Yoga Centre before reaching Adiyogi.
The Vice-President attended the Pancha Bhutha Aaradhana at Dhyanalinga, a process to cleanse the elements, performed by Sadhguru. Isha's Maha Sivaratri event is said to be the largest Maha Sivaratri event to be held anywhere in the world.
Millions participate in the event in person. The nightlong celebrations culminate at 6 am the following morning. President Ram Nath Kovind was the chief guest at the 25th anniversary of Maha Sivaratri celebrations at Isha Yoga Centre last year.
Maha Sivaratri is significant because of the immense spiritual benefits it offers due to natural planetary positions. On this night, the northern hemisphere of the planet is positioned such that there is a natural upsurge of energy in the human system, pushing one towards their spiritual peak.
It is therefore considered important to stay awake with the spine erect to benefit from this natural upsurge of energy.
The forces of the night are agnostic to faith or religion making Maha Sivaratri a universally significant night for all human beings, especially those on the spiritual path.
