Importance of Guru in Mantra Sadhana

I have read the articles on Indian spiritualism and beliefs published on this site. Today I am not sharing a Mantra or a Sadhana but I want to share with you the importance of a Guru for getting a Mantra. In almost every Sadhana, we read or hear that we need a Guru for getting the initiation. We also come across articles on the Internet where Gurus claim how other Gurus are fake in this age of the Kali Yuga and how initiations taken from a competent Guru only will work. All of this is false.  The fact is completely different.  We do need initiations for Mantras, but that does not mean that only a Guru can give you initiations.  For people who don't have a guru they can do what I have mentioned below. – Ashok Mehta

By Ashok Mehta
Write the Mantra on a piece of paper.  Keep it in front of the respective God or Goddess, chant the Mantra, and imagine that God is giving you the initiation. If you see the Mantra in a dream then that means, you have got the perfect initiation. If that doesn't happen, you can start with the Mantra.  However, before you start with your Isht Mantra, chant Brahma Vishnu Mahesh Mantra I.E. Guru Mantra as per your ability but not less than 11 times. After that, chant the Gayatri Mantra.

After this, pray to Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, Gayatri and Surya Dev to guide you and give you success in the Mantra or Sadhana.  Within 3 days of beginning the Mantra or Sadhana, you'll get to know whether you are going to get success or not. If you can't do this, then just pray to the God who's Mantra or Sadhana you are going to do and request him to guide you through the Sadhana and be your Guru. This always works.

I do not support most of the Gurus. This is because when you have God as your Guru then why would you need a human Guru.  Gurus had importance in the previous Yugas when they had a really high level of consciousness. You can't expect the same from Gurus who have websites.  If you want, a real Guru then one should go the Himalayas where one can find Gurus doing Sadhana since years. I am not denying the importance of a Guru.  However, it's better to have God as your Guru then to have a human Guru.

I have seen cases where people got initiation of Mantra in dreams but still Gurus told them to get their initiation or else they will not be successful. What the Gurus only do is give you procedure and blessing to start the Sadhana and for this, they charge you thousands of rupees. Such halfhearted initiations do not work.  Instead, it is better to pray to God and make him your Guru.

  2. Please also write on paid Yagna (Yagya) as in each religion/religious places or plenty of sites/so called gurus boasts of showering benefits or problem removing by paying for particular no of chants of a particular deity or mantra followed by homam/havan etc.
    they even boasts of immediate feeling etc. and agrees to send DVD of performance, photographs, sankulp chant over phone and prasad courier etc.

    what are your view and take on that?

    1. Perhaps this being a site which just publishes what the seekers seek..I also believe the site does not encourage discussion on matters of controversy, yet the keen seekers would welcome the sharing of different experiences of people in regard to the theme of this blog.
      Shukriya

  3. Thank you for sharing this Sir, it is indeed an eye opener. I myself requested for "Diksha" for a mantra in a particular site- where the readers were warned to ask for diksha before starting any mantra. I did not get any reply or much awaited diksha.
    Your post here is much appreciated, Thank you.

  5. Why not simply invoke Goddess and take a boon than one gets success in every tantra-mantra?


    Another very effective way is to chant 5 malas of Shiva mantra and ask him to guide as guru, he will surely guide.


    If one has an innovative mind, he will discover than one simple sadhna is actually an initiation to several other sadhnas. No kidding!

    There's also a mantra in "Shakti mantras" where you can have a vision of mother, with just 7 chantings, that solves all your worries and problems as well and with a wish in mind, it also gets fulfilled. Keep the wish for success in all sadhnas and you will. Easy way? Isn't it?




    And Mehta sir, what should be the prayer to Brahma,vishu,Surya etc? Like should one do a sahastranaama and pray along or simple beej mantras will work? A little more elaboration is needed.

    2. Hello Piyush sir you said "There's also a mantra in "Shakti mantras" where you can have a vision of mother, with just 7 chantings, that solves all your worries and problems as well and with a wish in mind, it also gets fulfilled."

      Is it the MahaKali Beeja Mantra prayoga?

      A real genuine and wise scholar told me some years ago to take Sri Adi Guru DakshinaMurthy as one's Guru before commencing any Mantra Japas

    3. Yes, any of these personifications of the gods(not devtas) can be taken as guru, but the most effective of the mantras or stotra etc should be practiced to seek their blessings. Invoking mother Goddess would make it easier since she just gave darshan to you,if so happens. Pratyaksh darshan is very powerful. But anyway, you can even take hayagriva for guru but the mantras available are corrupted as per me. So, you must find reliable source of appeasing mantra,stotra etc of any if the gods/godesses that you take as a guru. Above all, devotion matters.
