Kangana Ranaut shared a picture , of her during the time when she was at Sadhguru’s Isha Foundation Yoga Centre in coimbatore. She can be seen sitting beside a beautiful lotus pond which gives a feeler of the nature retreat, the yoga centre is. There is an unusual serenity on Kangana’s face which makes her look peaceful yet shine brighter than she usually does.
She attended the Samyama which is an 8-day intense yoga course consisting of meditation and silence. Speaking on how she ended up attending the program, Kangana said, “When I first met Sadhguru after my initiation in US, he looked at me and said that I should do Samyama, and then I realized that it was like the Phd of Isha universe. But I was very happy with Shambhavi, the 21 minute Kriya which was a part of inner engineering program. It gave me back my exuberance and energy levels. And I told him I should take it slow, but he insisted that I should.”
“So, I started taking advanced levels, and when I started Samyama, I was very scared. People attend this program after 5-6 years of Kadi Sadhana, but for me, it was just one year. And then suddenly, on 5th of 6th day, it just opened up. I am so grateful I did this. It’s difficult to explain the experience in words, but before this, Shiva for me was a dimension, and something I could mentally understand. But after Samayama, he has unleashed Shiva in me, he has become my breath. When I felt him for the first time, it took me back to my time as a kid I lost him, I could tell this was what was missing from me. I told my mother that I am home, I have found what I lost, and everything makes sense. Something so profound has happened to me, that no amount of success, money, awards, relationships have ever touched me like that.”
