In this short message, Poojya Swamiji speaks about the three kinds of Deeksha (initiation) in Spirituality. He explains śāmbava Deeksha which is the highest of all forms of deekshas in which the Guru creates a kind of a spiritual influence and vibration in the seeker.

He conveys a spiritual influence to the seeker by means of three processes–through sight, touch and words. Through his words, he will convey the presence of the soul, the need for realizing it, and what are the qualities one must have in order to realize this truth.

Shlokas chanted in the talk:

दर्शनात्स्पर्शनाच्छब्दात्कृपया शिष्यदेहके ।
जनयेद्यः समावेशं शांभवं स हि देशिकः ।।

(Yogavasishta Ramayanam, Nirvana Prakarana Poorvardham 6.128.61)

न कर्मणा न प्रजया धनेन त्यागेनैके अमृतत्वमानशुः ।

(Kaivalyopanishad 1.3)

उत्तिष्ठत जाग्रत प्राप्य वरान्निबोधत ।
क्षुरस्य धारा निशिता दुरत्यया दुर्गं पथस्तत्कवयो वदन्ति ।।

(Kathopanishad 1.3.14)

वेदान्तविज्ञानसुनिश्चितार्थाः संन्यासयोगाद्‌ यतयः शुद्धसत्त्वाः।
