Bhairavi Utsav will take place in Tundikhel, Kathmandu from 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm.
Linga Bhairavi, an exuberant expression of the Divine Feminine, is coming to Nepal!
Bhairavi Utsav is a celebration of this momentous occasion. An immersive cultural extravaganza of dance, music and devotion, the programme is an opportunity to experience and be enveloped in Linga Bhairavi’s intense energies and grace.
Sadhguru: The moment we utter the word ‘divine’, most people will look up because the divine is supposed to be up. In Indian culture, we did not believe in a God somewhere. We learned the technologies of god-making. We created over 33 million gods and goddesses. These were tools to give you access to something beyond the limitations of your own senses.
In this culture, you were told that if you are fearful, you should go to one kind of god; if you have ailments, you go to another kind of god; if you need prosperity, you go to another kind of god, and so on. This is because these are tools to access certain dimensions of life.
A Fierce Feminine Form of the Divine
Linga Bhairavi is a very powerful and fierce form, consecrated as a feminine linga. Feminine energy being worshipped as a linga is very rare. The greatest masterpiece of physical creation, of what we know on this planet, is the human body. There is no physical mechanism that is as sophisticated and as fantastic as this one. And though there is an input from the masculine, it is essentially manufactured in the womb of the feminine. Linga Bhairavi is the ultimate feminine nature.
One sad thing that is happening in the world is, women are becoming like Barbie dolls. There is no fierceness in them; there is no feminine fire in them. They just have jealousy, man-like ambitions, and other nonsense. What a woman could add to this world is that she is like a fire. Indian culture encouraged women to be fiery and wild. You should see the ancient literature in this country, where poets are saying, “What to do with a domesticated woman?” We domesticated women because we wanted to breed, raise families, etc. But if you are looking for other possibilities – not necessarily always but sometimes – it comes with some not-so-good behaviour.
Even when we manifested the form of Linga Bhairavi, I made her like this – wild, very fiery, but absolutely compassionate. These are not contradictory qualities in a being; all these things come together. That is how life comes, and Linga Bhairavi is just pure life; life in its fiery, highest possibility, but untamed. She is a roar, a scream. She is not the gentle, nice kind. You can never domesticate her.
In terms of geometry, Linga Bhairavi is three-and-a-half chakras. The three full chakras – Muladhara, Swadhishthana, and Manipura – are largely about well-being, health, and prosperity. The half one – Anahata – is about transcendence. If you involve yourself in that aspect, there is transcendence.
Rituals from Birth to Death, and Beyond
The important thing about Bhairavi’s abode is that it is not necessarily just a place of worship. It is a place where there are energy processes from prenatal state to post-mortal state. There are energy processes, for a woman who is intending to get pregnant, for a child yet to be born, and when the child is born there are processes for when he or she eats the first solid food, when the child writes the first alphabet, for one moving into adolescence, and then from adolescence to adulthood, for marriage, for old age. And after death also, there are processes of karmas and kriyas.
This is a way of establishing another dimension of knowledge, which I think will be lost forever if this generation does not do enough work in this direction.
Previously, Sadhguru visited Nepal in September 2022 for the campaign ‘Save Soil’ which he initiated globally to address the soil crisis by bringing together people from around the world to stand up for Soil Health, and supporting leaders of all nations to institute national policies and actions toward increasing the organic content in cultivable Soil.
