Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev unveiled the statue of Adiyogi at the Isha Yoga Center in Tennessee. Around 1400 attended the ceremony. The statue, one of its kind in the world, is over 21 feet tall and weighs more than 30 tonnes. It took more than two and a half months for the 15-member team at the Isha Yoga Center, Coimbatore, to sculpt the statue.
The statue was transported to the United States and established at the Isha Institute of Inner Sciences in Tennessee on September 23, which also happens to be Sadhguru’s Enlightenment day.
“I want this one message to reach every human being. No matter what they are going through in their lives – their struggles, frustrations, madness, and yearnings – if they are willing to strive, they can transcend all of this. I want all of you to do whatever you can, wherever you are, to make this happen,” Sadhguru said.
