Adiyogi – the First Guru
Lord Shiva was the first Yogi or Adiyogi. He was also the Adi Guru or the first Guru, who gave yogic science to the world. Adiyogi appeared 15,000 years ago, in the Himalayan heights. His origins are unknown. Seeing him dance ecstatically on the mountains, people gathered around him to find out what was happening. However, they were unable to approach him as he was blazing like a flame. So, they waited for a while. As time passed, many of them left until only seven people remained. Being determined seekers, they insisted that they wanted to learn from him, but Shiva did not pay them any heed.
