In Tantra diksha has been defined:

"The Process which produces the capacity to realize the inner import of mantra and which expedites the requital of the samskaras is called diksha." [1]

From this we can conclude that diksha is an extremely important for it is through diksha that one learns the techniques of meditation and more importantly the guru has finally accepted one in the spiritual path of Tantra.

The key to this for the sadhaka to develop within an intense desire for spiritual awareness and liberation and by the strength of this desire one is sure to meet the guru.

“When the disciple is ready the guru appears.”

Based on the philosophy of Ananda Marga; the real guru is the Cosmic Entity – Brahma – the highest Self within everyone. In the guru, Brahma is fully manifest.

A guru helps pierce the veil of avidya, so we can perceive the divine guidance from our inner selves.
