Gain access to worship Paramashiva, experience a superconscious breakthrough, and manifest all powers of Paramashiva.

Introduction to Vishesha Deeksha

Vishesha Deeksha is the second-level initiation (The first level being Shiva Deeksha) that grants the privilege to offer prayers and gratitude through personal puja (anmartha Puja) to the Guru (Paduka) and Paramashiva (Atma Linga).

Vishesha Deeksha is giving you a superconscious breakthrough, where the Guru removes the old life (Innerspace) from the disciple and replaces it with the Shiva Atma (Paramashiva’s Consciousness) from His Ananda Gandha into the disciple getting initiated.

It empowers you to engage in daily worship. Vishesha Deeksha and daily puja bestow upon you a life of bliss, ecstasy, and power. They lead you to a life of Oneness and, ultimately, to Paramashivoham.

Whatever you share with Paramashiva daily during the puja, He listens to you. Vishesha Deeksha initiates you into power manifestation and unlocks the doors to KAILASA for you. Vishesha Deeksha offers you the experience of KAILASA.

  • Abstaining from animal meat, fish, eggs, and mushrooms.
  • As per the Agamas, there are no restrictions on vegetarian foods, including onions, garlic, and dairy products.

There is no specific mention regarding smoking or drinking in relation to Vishesha Deeksha, so these are not explicitly restricted. However, a lifestyle that supports spiritual growth and health is encouraged.

In case you accidentally consume food containing egg or mushroom, it is advised to immediately consume Haritaki powder to help flush these substances from your system and detoxify your body as swiftly as possible.

Upon initiation into Vishesha Deeksha, disciples are guided to respect and honor the spiritual path with the following dos and don’ts:

  • Do Not Disrespect: Initiates must never disrespect Lord Paramashiva, the ultimate source of the cosmos, the sacred Shastras revealed by Him, the Guru (Acharya), and fellow Shaiva Sadhakas (seekers).
  • Avoid Certain Actions: One should not walk over the shadow of the Shiva Linga, as it is considered disrespectful to the divine presence of Lord Shiva.
  • Food Offerings: Do not consume the food offered to Chandikeshwara, the accountant of KAILASA, and do not cross over garlands offered to him, respecting the sanctity of offerings.
  • Respect Fellow Devotees: Initiates should not speak ill of anyone who has received Shiva Deeksha, fostering a supportive and respectful spiritual community.
  • Lifelong Devotion: From initiation until the end of one’s life, one should diligently perform puja to Shiva, Agni (fire deity), and Acharya (teacher) as a sign of unwavering devotion and adherence to the spiritual path.

These guidelines help maintain the sanctity and integrity of the spiritual journey, ensuring a respectful and devout practice.

  • Women: Specific exemptions are given to women, acknowledging their unique spiritual and societal roles.
