Mantira Dikshai (Tamil)
Mantira Dikshai (or spiritual initiation) is initiation of a spiritual aspirant into a Spiritiual tradition with a sacred name (or a mantra which is a set of sacred words) by a competent guru along with his blessings and counsels. It is this path shown by the guru which help the aspirants to achieve their supreme goal. By constant repetition of this mantra with utmost devotion faith and sincerity given by the guru a aspirant will become free from the bondage of ignorance i.e. liberation from the chain of births and deaths and attain the eternal peace. Swami Bhuteshanandaji Maharaj (the twelfth President of the Ramakrishna Math & Mission) has lucidly analyzed about all the factors related with mantira dikshai.
