And once again ADAA created history by making its offerings for one of the most magnificent celebrations the world has ever witnessed. A unique statue of Adiyogi was consecrated at Isha Yoga Center in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India by Sadhguru, the spiritual yogi and unveiled by our esteemed Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on Mahashivaratri (the night of Shiva). This iconic statue, the largest face of Shiva on the planet, towering 112 feet, represents 112 ways to attain one’s ultimate nature.

Anamika with her team at ADAA (Anamika’s Dance and Arts Academy) were invited by the Isha Foundation to design the choreography and train over 10000 performers for this special celebration of Mahashivratri and unveiling of Adiyogi. The presentation entailed a spectacular Fire Dance with 112 people, Damru Seva with 5000 people (an invocation through sound) and the Maha Aarti with 10000 people (an invocation through fire) guided by Sadhguru himself. The first ever Maha Aarti to energize the prana shakti (life force) in this manifested Adiyogi, monumental for generations ahead, immortalizes the essence and purpose of ADAA. What makes it even more soulful is that all the performances were presented by devotees, from all walks of life, from across the world and not trained professionals. ADAA once again realized the impossible in an unbelievable timeframe to serve better than imagined.

Celebrated dignitaries and renowned artists from all over the country, lakhs of attendees gathered to experience this magic along with millions of viewers from across the world in welcome of Adiyogi on this historical and magnificent night.

As Sadhguru himself stated that each one involved contributed out of supernatural capacity, purely from the soul, beyond the limitations of the body and mind. The celebration was nothing less than a Divine miracle.
