Mahabodhi Tatvamasi Diksha Initiation
Expansion of Guru Grace
Sprinkling of Nectar onto Disciple
Jai Gurudev…Jai Gurudev…Jai Gurudev…
A Sadhak disciple keeps on climbing the success ladder crossing the various challenges, obstacles and impediments through the Dikshas and Sadhanas granted by Gurudev. Some disciple –Sadhaks achieve these successes quickly while others get delayed due to blockages by the past sins of their previous lives.
Even when the Sadhak-disciple attains some physical successes in his life and obtains the means of a good life, his mind continues to remain disturbed and restless as how to achieve full peace, how to achieve complete perfection in his life.
A person keeps trying to remove his obstacles to obtain freedom in his life, and so he ultimately seeks shelter of Guru.
When a disciple gets tormented, anguished, desperate, frustrated and depressed in his life, then he profoundly prays with whole-hearted tears that my Gurudev! “Please uplift me now, please grant me the light of the knowledge, please enlighten my self, please grant me Tatva Gyan of the basic elements.”
The human body is highly incredible. All the pilgrimages, all the mantras, all the tantras, all the root-words, all the glyph-words and all the basic-elements are housed in the body itself, but the man has been unsuccessful in comprehending the self, and therefore, has been wondering aimlessly. What actually is a man? Only the Guru grants this knowledge?
But who is the Guru? A personality who can activate the inner-powers of the disciple, who can enthrall him into the divine bliss, who can activate his Kundalini through Shaktipaat, who can grant him knowledge, joy, love, detachment and divine visualization, only He is the Guru, such a Guru is entitled to the Shiva-form, for the welfare.
Yo GuruH Sa ShivaH ProktaH YaH ShivaH SaH GuruH SamritaH|
Ubhyorantaram Naasti Gurorpi Shivasya Cha ||
Meaning “Whomsoever is Guru, He is the Shiva, and Whomsoever is Shiva, He is the Guru. There is absolutely no difference between Guru and Shiva.”
The significance of human-life can be completed only when he fully accomplishes the task, for what he was born for. The responsibility to fully comprehend the extent of the task, and to finish it fully, is dependent only on a perfect Guru. There is a famous proverb – “One who has acquired a great Guru, he has obtained a Total life and accomplished it perfectly.”
As the Guru grants freedom from the attachments of the worldly-bondages, and grants him perfection including luxuries and virtues, through Shaktipaat Diksha, similarly a Sadhak obtains fruits of the knowledge and the skills.
The eligibility is not considered at the time of the Shaktipaat, the glory of Guru-Shakti is such that it does not rest until the Sadhak has achieved elevation after the Shaktipaat – there is not a single iota of doubt in this. Guru-Power-Energization is the only way to gain perfection for the Sadhak.
Yogavashisht states that –
Darhanaat Sparshanaat Shabdaan Kripya Shishyadeha Ke |
Jayanet YaH Samavesham Shambhavam Sa Hi DeshakaH||
The Guru’s task is to uplift the worthy disciple and uplift the unworthy disciple by transforming him into a worthy disciple.
A-TrinetraH Sarvsaakshi A-Chatu Brahu RachyutaH |
A-Chaturvadano Brahma Shree GuruH KathitaH Priye ||
Meaning the triad Trigunatmak power of Tridevas, Three-Dieties is concentrated within the Guru, Guru is the only direct God in the mortal world.
Ayam Mayaanjalibardhvo Daya Saagarvridvaye |
Yadnugrihato Jantu Shchitrasansaar Muktibhaak ||
A disciple should continuously repeatedly pray with folded hands to obtain Gurudev’s grace. The Guru’s grace is enough to grant him freedom from the cycle of birth and death. Guru is the only passage to cross this world-ocean, so the disciple should continuously meditate on his Divinity and Universality, nothing is possible without his permission, so an incessant tribute to His Holy Feet with folded hands, to receive His unceasing grace.
This is through Gurudev’s divine grace that all of us are going to join the process of ultimate-realization, self-realization and knowledge-realization. The Self-realization in life is a Mahabodhi Tatva element. The knowledge of Mahabodhi Tatvamasi is the basis of energy-activation, all the powers bloom only after this process.
This process can only and only be performed by the Guru, therefore Gurudev is granting this marvelous Diksha to all the disciples. We attain Siddhashram-Gyanganj in this life, this life becomes full of accomplished Siddhis, the Siddhis to extinguish the darkness in our lives, and to sprout the seeds of joy in our own selves, this is the essence of Gurudev’s blessings.
Writing about Guru’s greatness is akin to exhibiting a lamp to Sun. We are fortunate for the union of the Guru and disciple in this mode, and all of you are coming over to Arogyadhaam to witness this divine event, and to live that special moment. You have to come, with your entire family, with your close friends and associates.
Gurudev has given only one calling, he has given us an indication. This signal has created ripples in our lives. Both the body and mind are dancing in unison, each cell of our body is full of joyous elation and jubilation. Dear Gurudev, we salute thou, you are bestowing this grace to all the disciples. We are indebted to you for multiple lives, this shower of bliss from you is a joyous rainfall in our lives. As the Oyster shell awaits the Swati constellation, that when the Swati constellation occurs, the clouds will rain from the sky and absorption of a single drop of this rain triggers creation of a pearl, to realize the accomplishment of the oyster-shell life.
All of us are awaiting the auspicious moment of the great Nakshatra Ravi Pushya like the oyster-shell, which is on the pious 26-27 December; when we shall receive the “Mahabodhi Tatvamasi Diksha” from your greatness.
Dear Gurudev! Please direct a drop from the nectar flow on our foreheads, we will absorb this divine drop and illuminate the wisdom pearl in our lives.
Jai Gurudev… Jai Gurudev… Jai Gurudev…
Your disciple – Ram Chetanya Shastri
