How to gain Positive Energy from the Sacred Tombs
Giants’ tomb of Dorgali at Sardinia
Giants’ tomb of Dorgali at Sardinia has been popular for the magnetic field around it. The magnetic field is powerful enough and releases positive energy. Angela Corrias, an Italian journalist specializing in travel writing has a blog - In Atlantis, in a Giants’ tomb where she reveals her personal experience.
She has mentioned clearly in her blog - Many people take the Giants' Tomb as a place to restore from daily stress and go there to absorb some of the energies that our ancestors managed to identify in those strategic spots.
It is indeed true that positive energy is released from some of the ancient and sacred tombs.
Tombs of saints who attained Jeeva Samadhi
In southern India there are too many sacred tombs which not only give out positive energy but also have healing powers. Ancient times have witnessed enough of Jeeva Samadhi in this part of the world. Jeeva means alive and Samadhi means tomb. Of course, a higher level of concentrated meditation or dhyana is also called as Samadhi . But here the meaning of Samadhi is related to the tomb.
Jeeva Samadhi is attained by a person imbued with eternal life force after his kundalini gets awakened through prolonged meditation and by gaining yogic powers. Kundalini is best explained in my hub - Supernatural powers and Indian Yogis in the Himalayas .
How people gain positive energy:
1. They need to have faith in the person who has entered the tomb alive. It is very much like having the faith and belief in god himself.
2. The person who wants to get his desires fulfilled wakes up before sunrise i.e. between 5.30 - 6.00AM.
3. Takes a head bath either in a nearby lake, river or water body.
4. Wears dry and clean clothes after the bath.
5. Fasting is done by most of the people who want to please the guru. If at all food is taken, never take non - vegetarian as food on that particular day.
6. In some places they allow to bath the tomb with the river water or milk. In some places devotees are not allowed to go near the tomb and always a gap is maintained so that the person inside the tomb doesn’t get disturbed.
7. Chanting begins with the name of the Guru(saint). For example if its Raghavendra, the chanting mantra will be Sri Raghavendraya Namah .
8. Circumambulate the tomb 108 times. Or with a rosary in hand meditate sitting on a straw carpet. The main intension here is body shouldn’t have direct contact with the ground while meditating. If body touches the ground the power gained by meditation will be lost to the earth below. One round rosary has 108 beads. With image of the Guru present in mind or directly gazing at the tomb with total concentration chant the mantra for 108 times.
9. Never divert the attention or leave for any other work until the mantra is uttered 108 times.
10. On some week days such as Thursday is believed to be very auspicious to please the Gurus in the tomb. On these days the mantra chanting will be very fruitful.
The intent behind Jeeva Samadhi
By spiritual practices, the person who attains Jeeva Samadhi has control over his breath and doesn’t allow the body to die. Hence the body cells don't get damaged. Functioning of the body is stopped by his / her own will. The person in samadhi fixes the mind permanently with the supreme god and stops functioning. Then a tomb is built around the person who sits still without breathing. Body never gets decayed even after thousands of years. Magnetic force and positive energy acts as a life force in the body. Sometimes the time limit for the samadhi status depends upon the saint's bio-magnetic strength, which may vary in terms of hundreds of years. Until then, the soul of the person in samadhi state will continue to bless the devotees. As an invisible helper or Unseen master, guides the human race for their well-being.
Brindavan the sacred tomb at Mantralaya
Great yogis, gurus and sacred people with their miracles had changed the minds of people in society at that time. Their words and deeds had enough power to mesmerize everyone around them. After they felt they had done enough for the people and society they attained Jeeva Samadhi on an auspicious day. For the outside world they had passed away to a heavenly abode. But their souls were still alive and created miracles every now and then.
One such well known Saint is Guru Raghavendra Swamy. During the period between 1595 and 1671 he lived as one of the most respected Hindu saints. He is well-known for preaching the vaishnavism(worship of Vishnu as the supreme God) and Sri Madhvacharya's Dvaita philosophy. He ascended Brindavana(his Jeev Samadhi) at Mantralayam in present day Andhra Pradesh state in the year 1671.
Before he attained the Jeeva Samadhi he had advised his disciples to start arranging slabs and build the walls of the tomb around him once the rolling of rosary beads by fingers in his hand become still. Mantralayam is now a pilgrimage destination. People believe that he would help the society and mankind to come-out from troubles and miseries for nearly 700 years. His tomb Brindavan to this day has positive energy around it and has created countless miracles.

Raghavendra Swamy and Sir Thomas Munro during the British Colonial rule:
Sir Thomas Munro, a Collector at Bellary in Karnataka State had come across an apparition of Raghavendra Swamy. This incident took place in the year 1801. He recorded in the Madras Districts Gazetteer as having spoken with Raghavendra Swamy in English over an endowment proposal. He had to ultimately quash the proposal as per the Swamy's advice. Munro also served as the Governor of Madras(Chennai) later.
Sant Jnaneshwar of Alandi, Maharashtra
Great saint Sant Jnaneshwar, also known as Jnanadeva, is well known for writing the Jnaneshwari, a commentary on Bhagavadgeetha. He was a great saint who lived in Maharashtra state of India. Born in 1275 A.D. at a place by name Alandi. Jnanadeva also wrote many abhangas (devotional songs) to Lord Vithala(Lord Vishnu's another form).
Both Sant Namdev and Jnanadev went on a pilgrimage to northern India. On their return to Alandi it was 13th day of the dark fortnight of Karthika month (according to Hindu calendar) in the year 1296, Jnanadev entered into a cave alive and it was closed like a tomb. People believe that his brother and sister followed him into samadhi within a year and a half. A temple was constructed there and thousands of devotees visit the place even today. He was just 21 years old when he attained Jeev samadhi.
