- Better understand how authentic Shaktipat unfolds.
What is Authentic Shaktipat initiation? Authentic Shaktipat is transmitted by look, touch, the giving of specific mantras, and/or by the mere will of the Shaktipat Guru. Unfortunately, the reference to ‘Shaktipat’ has gone the commercial route of the term ‘Yoga.’ People find that the reference to this most sacred of blessings has often been bastardized. Calling any energetic transmission experience Shaktipat is like calling aspirin a cure-all for any symptom or disease. We already know that is false! You should avoid this kind of business hype and ploy.
Shakta Adepts brought the experience and knowledge of what Shaktipat initiation is to the West and Europe. They were Shaktipat Gurus in a lineage of such beings. They served their own Masters for many years. In this way, they earned their Guru’s Grace. They also earned the authority and power to transmit this most precious Grace-bestowing power of God. People did not know what Shaktipat initiation is before these beings graced our planet! View the video below in which Sadguru Kedarji describes authentic Shaktipat initiation.
The Leadership of Experts Who Were Sages
These beings also exposed the rest of the world to the scriptures and sacred texts in which authentic Shaktipat initiation is described. Their utterances also describe who can give it. So, any people who claim to know what Shaktipat initiation is would have to have participated in a lineage of Shaktipat Gurus. They would also have to have spent extended time in the service of such a being. And, before being authorized to give it. Otherwise, they cannot know what Shaktipat is, nor how it is transmitted.
If you want to operate on hearts, do you read a book to acquire that skill? Or, do you mentor under a successful heart surgeon? The true spiritual path is no different from these things!
You, the spiritual aspirant, should weigh the right understanding of what authentic Shaktipat is and what it is not. You should do so before making a decision to enter into this most precious initiation and life-transforming gift. Shaktipat is a profound spiritual awakening that begins the easy path to permanent spiritual progress and Liberation.
