  • What is Diksha?
    Sai Maa Diksha is a powerful technique for pouring Light into the brain to initiate and support the process of Enlightenment by bringing Light into the seeds of fear in the brain. The word Diksha means "initiation" and has existed for eons. Every Diksha is unique to the Master who offers it. Sai Maa Diksha carries the energy of Sai Maa's lineage and is a transmission of Light that we can all be trained to offer.
  • Can I give Diksha to myself?
    Yes. Those trained in Sai Maa Diksha can now offer Diksha to themselves. When offering to ourselves, we follow all the same steps: 1. Offer our gratitude to the Light; 2. Bring the hands together; 3. Rest the center of the palms above the frontal lobe (at the hairline).
  • Can I give Sai Maa Diksha from a distance?
    Yes, when someone is unable to be physically present, it is possible to give Distance Diksha. The technique for giving Distance Diksha is the same as giving Diksha in person. Imagine the person is in front of you and go through the same procedure as though they actually are—either by moving your hands or by imagining hands of light.
  • What are the benefits of Sai Maa Diksha?
    During and after Sai Maa Diksha, many kinds of experiences may occur. When you receive Sai Maa Diksha, you may experience deep peace, a spreading of warmth, or maybe a lightness of being. You may experience a general sense of wellbeing, stillness, or silence. You may see Divine Light and find an increase in your joy for life or you may not notice much at all. It is best to remain innocent without expectations knowing that, whatever the experience, the Diksha is bring benefits on many levels. All of us are born with that great seed of beauty, power, wisdom, knowledge, peace, harmony, and more. When Sai Maa Diksha is received, the energy evaporates the clouds that veil your Divine essence. Your potential starts to express itself in joy, abundance and bliss and you empower yourself to reveal the Master that you are.
  • What is the difference between Diksha and Reiki?
    Reiki is believed to heal the body by raising the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the physical body. Diksha is the physical transference of Divine energy, or Light, directly into the brain, which initiates the process of enlightenment. In addition Sai Maa Diksha is charged with the energy of Sai Maa and Sai Maa's lineage.
  • What is the difference between Diksha and Brain Illumination?
    Brain Illumination is the process of bringing Light into all of the parts of the brain through visualization, to recreate oneself as Light. Diksha is the physical transference of the Light of Sai Maa's spiritual lineage, which dissolves seeds of fear in the brain and initiates the process of Enlightenment.
  • What is the difference between Sai Maa Diksha and other forms of Diksha?
    The difference is the spiritual lineage through which the Light is transmitted and sometimes the process through which the Diksha is offered. Different spiritual lineages offer different intentions with their Diksha. Sai Maa Diksha is the initiation of bliss; bliss being an aspect of Enlightenment.
  • Can children receive Sai Maa Diksha?
    Yes, children, infants, and even babies in utero can receive Sai Maa Diksha. It is a tremendous service to offer children Diksha, because it transforms the seeds of fear in their brains before the seeds have an opportunity to sprout. Children and infants receive Diksha for one to one and a half minutes.
  • Is it okay to give Diksha to pets?
    Yes, animals can receive Diksha. Again, be conscious of the time, and limit it to a minute or less. You can also give Sai Maa Diksha to your plants and even trees.

Diksha can be given in many forms including by sight, by touch, by intention; or by the student seeing the picture, hearing the name, reading the words, or hearing the voice of the Master. Sai Maa is the holder of three lineages: the Siva lineage, the Vishnu lineage and the Mother Divine lineage.

  • Do I need permission to offer Sai Maa Diksha?

  • Should I have my eyes open or closed when giving Sai Maa Diksha?
    Most people prefer to close their eyes when giving Sai Maa Diksha however, you may open your eyes if it helps you to stay balanced.
  • What if I feel light-headed after giving Sai Maa Diksha?
    Sit down, close your eyes and allow the energy to move inside of you.
  • What should I do if the recipient's head begins to move when I am offering Sai Maa Diksha?
    It's not uncommon for a person's head to move slightly during Sai Maa Diksha. Make sure the pressure of your heads is light enough for the head to move freely. Don't try to stop these movements. If, in very rare cases, the movements become stronger, gently raise your hands from their head.
  • What if a person complains of head pressure after receiving Sai Maa Diksha?
    This may occasionally happen due to a buildup of Light in the brain. It is not harmful. Ask him/her to remain seated with eyes closed and to have the intention of allowing the Light to disperse throughout the body and down to the feet.
  • How should I be internally when giving Sai Maa Diksha?
    When giving Sai Maa Diksha, we are in sacred service to the Light. We become clear channels, conduits through which Light may pass from our crown chakra, through our heart chakra, and out through our arms and hands. Visualize yourself standing in a column of Divine Light. Have the intention that you are pouring this Light directly into the brain, especially the midbrain, of the recipient.
  • What do I do externally when receiving Sai Maa Diksha?
    Sit comfortably on a chair with your upper body upright and forward from the back of the chair. Your chin is to be slightly tucked towards the chest. Arms can be relaxed, resting the hands in the lap. Either have your legs together so they touch at the knees, or open knees wide enough for the Diksha giver to stand between your feet. Eyes are to be closed.
  • Is there any time when I shouldn't give or receive Sai Maa Diksha?
    One of the great gifts of Sai Maa Diksha is that whatever is happening in you personally—whether you are feeling ill or upset—you may offer without your state impacting the energy of Sai Maa Diksha. You may receive Diksha at any time that is comfortable for you.
  • How should I be internally when receiving Sai Maa Diksha?
    Remain relaxed and open, without expectations, allowing the Light to flow easily.
  • Is it appropriate to charge for Sai Maa Diksha?
    Sai Maa Diksha is a free-will gift from Sai Maa and therefore it is never appropriate to charge for giving someone Sai Maa Diksha. If someone would like to make a donation to Humanity In Unity after receiving Sai Maa Diksha training and activation, they may do so. Donations help to support the spread of this knowledge.
