What is Vibhuti, How to Use it by Sadhguru, Isha Foundation

1.   What is Vibhuti?

Vibhuti, or sacred ash, is closely associated with Shiva, who is often depicted ash-smeared from head to toe, symbolizing the mortal nature of life. The basis of spiritual process is a realization of one’s mortality; vibhuti is a constant reminder of this. In Indian culture, it is also used as a powerful tool for a seeker, as it enhances one’s receptivity if properly prepared and applied on the body, as well as serves as a great medium to transmit energy.

Traditionally, Yogis used ash from cremation grounds, but vibhuti can also be made from cow dung or rice husk.

2.   How is Isha Vibhuti consecrated?

Isha Vibhuti has imbibed the energy of Dhyanalinga, where it has been kept for a certain period of time for consecration.


3.   Where do I apply Vibhuti?

Traditionally, Vibhuti is taken between the ring finger and the thumb and applied at various points on one’s body: between the eyebrows, known as agna chakra; at the pit of the throat, known as vishuddhi chakra; and in the center of the chest where the rib cage meets, known as the anahata chakra.

Vibhuti is applied at the agna to enhance one’s clarity; at the vishuddhi to establish a certain power in your way of being, and at the anahata to bring the dimension of love and devotion into your life.

1.   Who is Adiyogi and what is his significance today?

“The significance of Adiyogi is he provided methods to evolve human consciousness that are relevant for all times.” – Sadhguru

Over 15,000 years ago, predating all religion, Adiyogi, the first Yogi, transmitted the science of Yoga to his seven disciples, the Saptarishis. He expounded 112 ways through which human beings can transcend their limitations and reach their ultimate potential. Adiyogi’s offerings are tools for individual transformation, as individual transformation is the only way to transform the world. His fundamental message is that “in is the only way out” for human wellbeing and liberation.

The tools for transformation that Adiyogi offered to humanity thousands of years ago are not only relevant but essential today. The 112-ft face of Adiyogi at Isha Yoga Center is a powerful reminder and inspiration to all.

Women must wear it on their left wrist, and men on their right wrist. It must be worn for a minimum of 40 days.
