"Bhagavan says, 'The mind of man is like a wall which divides man from God. The deeksha is an electrical energy that makes a hole in this wall, which we call the mind. Once this happens, then God and man can come to relate to each other.'
The act of receiving deeksha involves a special process where a qualified deeksha giver places their hands upon your head and, in a state of divine union, becomes a channel for cosmic energies directed by Bhagavan and Amma.
When a deeksha is received a neurobiological process takes place in the brain. Bhagavan refers to this process as 'divine surgery' where certain parts of the brain become activated and other parts are deactivated, enabling us to experience cosmic realities and oneness."
