By Joseph Chilton Pearce

Explains the phenomenon of shaktipat, the non secular transmission of energy from a instructor to a devotee

• finds how perception is the motor vehicle for profound self-transformation

Shakti is the inventive strength, the bonding energy, that holds the universe jointly. Shaktipat is the instant whilst enlightenment is conferred upon a pupil immediately by means of his master’s contact. The guru conferring shaktipat creates a bond of strength in those that have accredited her or him as their instructor. In Spiritual Initiation and the leap forward of attention Joseph Chilton Pearce describes his adventure of shaktipat from his instructor Swami Muktananda. From this awakening Pearce studies a dramatic shift of brain and is derived to the belief that conception is fact and that perception is our purely automobile for profound self-transformation.

Oneness with God is the birthright of each person, even though we're culturally vaccinated to withstand experiencing this better awareness. Our look for goal fact has lead us to not wholeness, yet in its place to the assumption that we have got no bond to one another, to God, or to an inanimate, actual global. Our know-how reduces our skill to event revelation and leads us as an alternative towards the chatter of burdened considering. The problem confronted by means of smooth humanity, that is the problem Muktananda gave to his scholars, is to passionately assemble up the scattered fragments of our lives and channel them into the artistic realm, the place with perception or revelation we can develop into greater than ourselves.
