Diksha In Hinduism – Importance Of Deeksha In Hindu Religion

Diksha, or Deeksha, in Hinduism means initiation and is generally associated with the initiation of learning – a Guru or a holy saint agrees to share his knowledge with the disciple. The Guru helps the disciple to cross over the ocean of darkness and guides him to stay rooted in the world of self realization.

The path which the Guru chooses to take a disciple to Truth varies. Like some Gurus remain silent to the queries of a disciple. This is an important aspect in self realization, where a disciple is taught that language is not that powerful enough to explain some important phenomenon and truth is beyond words.

In some cases a Guru provides a disciple with a Guru Mantra.
