Spiritual Activities

Mantra Diksha

In the Ramakrishna Order, in India, Only the Revered President Swamiji and the Vice-President Swamijis, initiate devotees into Spiritual Life. However, there are other Senior monks abroad who initiate.
It is Satchidananda that comes to us in the form of the guru. If a man is initiated by a human guru, he will not achieve anything if he regards his guru as a mere man. The guru should be regarded as the direct manifestation of God. Only then can the disciple have faith in the mantra given by the guru. Once a man has faith he, achieves all. The sudra Ekalavya learned archery in the forest before a clay image of Drona; He worshipped the image as the living Drona; that by itself enabled him to attain Mastery in archery.
Faith in the guru’s words. You should depend on his instruction. Do your duties in the world, holding fast to his words, like a person whirling round and holding fast to a pillar. One must not look on one’s guru as a mere human being: it is Satchidananda Himself who appears as the guru. When the disciple has the vision of the Ishta, through the guru’s grace, he finds the guru merging in Him.” – Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa by Swami Bhuteshanandaji Maharaj, the 12th President of the Ramakrishna Order Interested Devotees who are willing to obtain Mantra Diksha will have to complete reading the following books before filling the application:
