Welcome to Adiyen Sri Ramanuja Dasan !

" Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha !"

Diksha in Vaishnava Sampradayams

In the Padma Purana it is stated:

sampradaya-vihina ye, mantras te nisphala matah; atah kalau bhavisyanti, catvarah sampradayinah.

sri-brahma-rudra-sanaka, vaisnavah ksiti-pavanah; catvaras te kalau bhavya, hy utkale purusottamat.

ramnujam srih svi-cakre, madhvacaryam caturmukhah; sri-visnu-svaminam rudro, nimbadityam catuhsanah.

"Unless one is initiated by a bona-fide Vaishnava spiritual master in a bonafide and authentic Vaishnava disciplic succession, the Mantra one might have received is without any effect. For this reason, the Lord revealed the four authorized Vaishnava Guru-Disciple disciplic successions in Kali Yuga, inaugurated by Lord Brahma, Shri Lakshmi-devi, Lord Shiva, and the four Sanata Kumaras. The teachings of these four Sampradayas will be spread by the mercy of the Supreme Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu from the holy place of Shri Jagannatha Puri Dhama in Orissa and thus purify the entire earth during the age of Kali. Anyone accepting Diksha Initiation outside these four authorized Vaishnava sampradayas is at a big risk. Lord Brahma chose Shrila Madhvacharya to represent his disciplic succession. In the same way, Shri Lakshmi-devi chose Shrila Ramanujacharya, Lord Shiva chose Shrila Vishnuswami Acharya, and the four Sanata Kumaras chose Shrila Nimbaditya Acharya to lead their respective disciplic successions."

Lord Brahma instructs Narada mni in the Skanda Purana, Kartika-Mahatmya:

te narah pasavo loke, kim tesam jivane phalam; yair na labdha harer diksa, narcito va janardanah.

"Unfortunate people do not accept Mantra Diksha from a bonafide Vaishnava guru in any of these four sampradayas and thus they remain unqualified to worship Lord Krishna. Such people are simply like animals since there is no higher purpose for their human form of life."

tapasvinah karma nistha, sresthaste vai nara bhuvi; prapta yaistu harer diksa, sarva dukha vimocani.

"Those persons who accept Diksha from a bonafide Vaishnava Spiritual Master from any of these four sampradayas are completely delivered from all the miseries of material existence. In this world, they become superior even to the great ascetics and karma-nistha yogis."

The Vishnu-yamala states:
adikshitasya vamoru kritam sarvam nirarthakam; pashu-yonim avapnoti diksha-virahito janah.

"Unless one is Diksha Initiated by a bona fide Spiritual Master from any of the above four sampradayas, all one's activities are useless. A person who is not Initiated into any of these four authorized Vaisnava sampradayas will surely descend again into the animal species in his next life."

divyam jnanam yato dadyat kuryat papasya sanksayam; tasmat dikseti sa prokta desikais tattva-kovidaih.
