Tirumala Tirupati

Welcome to Adiyen Sri Ramanuja Dasan !

" Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha !"

Thus, when the disciple submissively and attentively hears the Mantras from his Guru with great faith and begins chanting the Mantras regularly with great devotion, then he or she will gradually realize the unlimited Spiritual Meanings behind those Mantras and eventually see the Lord face to face. That is called Mahadiksha or Diksha or Initiation.

As per the Scriptures and the Acharyas, receiving the Mantras in one's right ear from the bonafide Spiritual Master with the proper mood of surrender to the Holy Names and Gurudeva is Mahadiksha. The transmission of the sound vibration of the Mantrarajas is most important. This transmission can be accomplished on the phone or personally etc. There is no difference since it is spiritual sound vibration. Ofcourse since the Guru and the disciple have to voluntarily accept each other, that is why they have to be living and physically present on the manifested platform. That is the reason why we cannot accept Diksha from the previous Acharyas who are no longer manifesting their pastimes in a prakata way since there is no such precedent in the Scriptures or the lives of our Acharyas. The Diksha Mantras are imbued with transcendental knowledge and also with the realizations of the Guru. This is how the disciple receives the transcendental knowledge in seed form in the form of the deeksha mantra.

The fire sacrifice is a formality. The most powerful presence of the Holy Names Themselves is actually sufficient. It is the confirmed in the Adi Purana by Lord Krishna Himself who states to Arjuna: Nama eva para Makhah: The Holy Name Itself is the Greatest Fire Sacrifice. The Mantrarajas of Nityananda and Gauranga and the Hare Krishna Mahamantra include the potency of millions of fire sacrifices and millions of universes. Infact the full potency of the spiritual and material creation is present in the Holy Names. Shrila Gaura Kishore dasa Babaji Maharaja initiated Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada without any fire sacrifice because the Name Itself is topmost Sakshi (seer).

Diksa is the process of formalization of the relationship between Guru and Disciple. However, within the formal ceremony, the most substantial things takes place: transmission of the Mantras on the part of the Guru and vows on the part of the disciple. The imparting of the Mantras is not a formality. It is the substance.

This spiritual principle surrounding the imparting of the Mantrarajas involves the invisible sharing of the Guru's transcendental experiences and realizations of the Mantrarajas and the Mahamantra. It is an act of giving, motivated by nothing other than genuine compassion, karunayaha purana guhyam. It is not a business. Compassion is the motive behind the imparting of the Mantras during Diksha, the compassionate desire of the Guru to see all souls quickly realize their eternal constitutional relationship with the lord.. Through Shraddha (faith), Sharanagati (Surrender), Mantra Dhyana (Mantra Meditation), and avoidance of Vaishnava Ninda (Blasphemy of Devotees), the disciple can achieve complete success in the chanting of the Mantras imparted by Gurudeva.

Receiving the Diksha Mantras means to be given a second birth. Consider that a bird has given birth to a few chicks. Birds are called dwija in Sanskrit because they are born twice, once within the egg and a second time when the eggs hatch. Our material birth is like that of the chicks within the egg. In this birth our possibilities are extremely limited. But if we are fortunate to meet a genuine Spiritual Master and receive a second birth from him in the form of Diksha, our spiritual possibilities in life expand beyond anything we could imagine within the egg of our material birth.
