Shaktipat

Shaktipat or ?aktip?ta (Sanskrit, from shakti – “(psychic) energy” – and p?ta, “to fall”) refers in Hinduism to the conferring of spiritual “energy” upon one person by another.

Refers in Hinduism to the conferring of spiritual “energy” upon one person by another. Shaktipat can be transmitted with a sacred word or mantra, or by a look, thought or touch – the last usually to the ajna chakra or third eye of the recipient.

Saktipat is considered an act of grace (anugraha) on the part of the guru or the divine. It cannot be imposed by force, nor can a receiver make it happen. The very consciousness of the god or guru is held to enter into the Self of the disciple, constituting an initiation into the school or the spiritual family (kula) of the guru. It is held that Shaktipat can be transmitted in person or at a distance, through an object such as a flower or fruit or else by telephone or letter.

If we look at shaktipat (shakti=energy, pat=falling, transferring) we could say that my energy transmissions and energy remedies, my energy audios (activators) could be construed as shaktipat, and maybe they are… but I know I can’t truly cause anything in a person they are not ready for… That’s why they are activators: they are there to activate something that’s already there… if it is ready to wake up and be activated.

In my personal experience, people who want “shaktipat” are not ready, they just want the result, not the work. But herein lies the mischief: just like in nature, if you are not ready, you can’t benefit from what you got.
