Derived from the Sanskrit words sakti(energy or power) and pāta (to fall), Shaktipat is a purposeful transfer of spiritual energy from the higher realms of consciousness and refers to the act of a guru or spiritual Master conferring a form of spiritual ‘Power’ or ‘Awakening’ on a receiver. Shaktipat works on the deep karmic impressions. It often has a profound effect on the life of the recipient, contributing to their spiritual elevation. Indeed, it is said that the very consciousness of the God or Guru enters into the Soul or Self of the recipient. But, the effect of Shaktipat depends upon receptivity of the receiver.
The first ever Shaktipat happened with the first creation, when life entered matter and became a living being. That was a demonstration of Love and the Shaktipat which is life was a gift of the Almighty; Love is the basis of creation. Life itself was the first of Shaktipats. Thenceforth, every Shaktipat that happened from every Master who represents the Guru Principle or the Almighty has been transforming lives and bringing them, in awareness, to the level of the Almighty. Although Shaktipat has been practiced from time immemorial, it was initially used only very rarely. In this Shaivic path, the ascended masters might touch the disciple to give them the “big shift”.
Shaktipat should not be confused with healing practices that use consciously-directed Chi or Prana.
Shaktipat works better when mind is not active. Shaktipat burns and cleanses karmic baggage. That transforms a person. It is like a software change, each time one receives Shaktipat. Hence, whatever is achieved is not achieved through doing-ness. It is achieved through being-ness; being there for meditation with faith. Each time the Shaktipat happens, a different set of blockages are removed.
SHAKTIPAT: Complete Grace
Shaktipat transfers can be performed in various ways, for example through gaze, sound, thought, objects, or even via telephone or email. One may ask, how does Mohanji give Shaktipat? During meditation, he gives Shaktipat on the Third eye or Sahasrara chakra. But we know many who have received Shaktipat through his words, writing and astrally also. Many people from many countries are practicing Mohanji’s meditation. Many have conveyed that they felt hand their head while doing meditation alone without physical presence of Mohanji. So, one’s connectivity with Mohanji is what is more important.
