Quest of the Tantric path
Meaning of TANTRIC INITIATION or ABHISHEKA
In the traditional Tantric way THREE fundamental INITIATIONS exist and 5 subsequent ones called ABHISHEKA.
Abhisheka or Abhishekam ( Devanagari : अभिषेक abhiṣeka) is a Sanskrit word which means ritual of passage which is a prelude, an access key, a door to the mystical and alchemical teachings.
Initiations cannot be made public or disclosed to people who do not belong to the sadhakas who follow the Tantric way.
This is to protect the teachings that have been passed on for centuries from Guru to Student.

The personified "Word" or Master's Power gives initiation, no matter where the Master is at that time. Whether the Master is very close or far overseas, his Power always works.
At the moment of initiation, the Master takes up residence in the Third Eye of the initiate and provides for him in the future. Aspirants who are sincere and receptive during initiation have an authentic inner spiritual experience (there is a difference between psychic and spiritual) in which the third eye and the inner ear are opened to hear the Voice of the divine, the Creative sound from beyond.
Occasionally the aspirant may feel for one reason or another that the initial experience is insufficient. The causes may be over-excitement and an inability to perceive the more subtle experiences granted according to its past. However, in due course, this individual receives an exhilarating experience that erases any sense of lack that still exists. From the moment of initiation the Master's power guides and protects us, even in moving around the world and beyond.
The instructions in the esoteric teachings concern the exposition of Simran, Dhyan and Bhajan, that is repetition (mental, only with the language of thought) of the words loaded with the power of the Master; concentration or meditation (passing the consciousness or gaze to the center of the eyebrows); and union of the spirit through an initiate or Sadhaka.
As soon as the sadhaka (spiritual adept) is able to transcend the physical and psychic body, the radiant form of the Master (Guru Dev) appears in the astral plane. It becomes for the spirit a guiding force in the journey to the spiritual realms; brings it back to the true House of the Divine (In the divine form of Shiva and Shakti Ardhanariswara). the Master-spirit never abandons the soul, on the contrary it helps and directs it continuously, visibly and not, directly and not, in this life and in that other according to the needs of the moment.
With initiation and sadhna or spiritual practice, we gradually become aware of our defects and try to transform them: the more we purify ourselves, mentally and physically, the more we grow in divine life. As the layers fall, the true values of life become more and more evident. The spirit gradually frees itself from the chains of the world and is allowed to transcend the physical body, to rise in the higher regions. Later, "he does not pursue the flesh, but the spirit". It lives in the world but no longer belongs to it. Now it disappears into the
bliss of the highest spiritual regions and not in the pleasures of the senses. The gift of Naam or Word derives only from a Master Soul who, injecting the impulse of life, favors an initiate in the spiritual journey.
The measure and speed of progress, however, depend on your individual path, on the terrain on which it is located and on the preparation prepared. in previous lives. Each has a different past and therefore has its own starting point. The seeds are scattered but their germination, development and growth depend on the nature of the soil in which they are planted.
Everyone needs their time for flowering. The dormant spiritual faculties begin to revive and the initiate feels a sort of fullness, contentment, bliss inside. It is an imperishable and indestructible gift, it cannot be stolen or canceled. The seed of spirituality, once gerated in the hidden depths of the soul, should germinate in the fullness of time.
No power on earth can stand in the way of its growth or suffocate it in any way. The initiate of a competent Master has ensured, once and for all, his liberation from the bondage of mind and matter: it is only a matter of time. The seed of spirituality generated in him must sprout and bear fruit. When you awaken spirituality and get spiritual experience.
Man is made or ensnared to such an extent by the mind and external faculties that he can
complete his release only with perseverance.
Similarly, the soul has become so bound to the body and senses that it attaches itself to external things and does not want to get rid of it. Do not yearn to fly out of the door opened by the Master at the time of Initiation, on whose threshold he patiently waits for his radiant Form to receive the child disciple. The true state of disciple does not begin until physical consciousness is transcended.
From this point, the disciple will not only feel comfort, but will begin to experience the joy and bliss that make him in the afterlife. He will have as his companion the enchanting radiant form of the Master, always close to learning that guide which is indispensable to avoid the pitfalls on the way.
Until this point is reached, the disciple is "on trial", but this trial cannot be interrupted. During this trial period the soul will feel some discomfort. She has become so muddy with the filthiness of her senses that she has lost the original purity of her heart and is not ready to rise out of the prison of the body. Although the door has been opened, the soul is so attached to the things of the outside world that it doesn't want to get rid of it.
The loving Master tries to avoid any possible discomfort to the child disciple by explaining what are the vices to be avoided and the virtues to be developed to take possession of the lost purity again. Unfortunately, most of the time, the words of the Master do not penetrate and the disciple does little or nothing to correct his ways. Therefore the Master's Power must take more resolute measures to make the disciple understand the importance of verbal truths.
This results in the discomfort that is sometimes felt in daily life. If the teachings of the Master were implicitly implemented, all the difficulties and discomforts would vanish.
Those who do not harbor falsehoods in the heart not only enjoy the privilege of the divine preparations to meet the Guru, but also benefit from that encounter. The best mental attitude is to serve with sincerity and humility, increasing humility. Then the Guru will come by itself.
Just be sincere and true with your self. The divine has sent you to the right place and is the donor.
the importance of Initiation
The initiation of a living Master ensures an escort into unknown realms by those who are themselves frequent travelers to those regions. He knows the deities or powers that preside over those plans, leads the spirit step by step, advises at every turn and curve of the path, warns against latent dangers in every place, explains in detail everything that one wants to know. He is the teacher on all levels of existence: a Guru on the earthly plane, a Guru Dev (astral radiant form) in the astral worlds and a Satguru in the purely spiritual regions. When everyone fails during this life, at one stage or another, His long strong arm is always ready to help us, both when we are here and when we leave the ground plane. He accompanies the spirit to the afterlife.
