(translation is typed, hearing the Original Hindi discourse, if any errors, it is sole fault of me)
In Madras, during the time of Maha Cakra, I had told that the Saḿskrta “Diikśa” and the English term “Initiation” are not one and the same.
Due to lack of proper english synonym for Saḿskrta “Diikśa”, the word “Initiation” have been used generally”.
As per the meaning of scriptural bidding, what is the term in “Diikśa”, “Dii” and “kśa”.
The word “Dii” is from “Diipajiṋánaḿ” the first syllable of this word and “Kśa ” is the first syllable of “Ksayam”.
Diipajiṋánaḿ yato dadyát kuryát pápakśayaḿ tatah
Tasmát diikśeti sá praktá sarvatantrasya sammatá.
From which, the people gets Diipajiṋánaḿ and also gets waning of sins(pápa ka kśaya), for such a practice, it is said to be called Diikśa.
Nábhuktaḿ kśiiyate karma kalpakot́i shátaerapi;
Avashyameva bhoktavyaḿ krtaḿ karma shubhá shubham.
Yávanna kśiiyate karma shubhaḿ cá shubhamaeva ca;
Távanna jáyate mokśo nrńáḿ kalpa shataerapi.
Yathá laohamayaerpáshaeh páshaeh svarńamayaerapi;
Tathá baddho bhavejjiivo karmá bhishcá shubhaershubhaeh.
This is the way how it works.
Then why it is said “ kuryát pápakśayaḿ tatah”, then how is the requittal of pápa(sin)”, in what sense it is expressed here in this shloka.
For any sinful act, the reaction one must undergo.
Here, there is two answers – that human must carry the Pápa(sins) for themselves, that’s alright.
If at all, for the sinful action, one undergoes reaction, and if those reactions are able to be quenched immediately, then for many days, there is no need to carry this sins.
The mind will be very light, and Atman(spirit) will be also light. Then man will be advancing in a proper way.
You know we have asteya, that we must not steal and have proper control, but Paramapuruśa Himself steals, it is very sorrowful?
It is shameful. Yes it alright, that it is shameful.
But HE is under great compulsion, that HE must steal.
What is the matter?
Paramapuruśa, HE loves HIS devotees very much, and the worldly humans, who is a small papii(sinner) or little greater sinner, to distinguish is very difficult?
Whether great sinner or less sinner, whether he may be pátakii, an atipátakii or a mahapátakii all belong to Paramapuruśa.
Everybody are sitting on HIS lap. Nobody are outsiders to HIM.
Sinner of a sinner, with whom the society spits on them?
Even such persons are not in the ambit to be hated by Paramapuruśa.
Even those are very loving sons and very loving daughters, so HE cannot have hatred towards them.
HE wishes that every body must have a bright future, for sons bright future as well as daughters bright future.
But society says, she is a lady, so she must not get this right, she must not get that right, she will have to remain in the house only.
There is variety of system in society?
For Paramapuruśa, HE does have any thing of that sort?
The son how much, he is lovable, even the daughter she is lovable.
When a father takes the child over the lap and makes him to eat, does he thinks whether the child is a son or a daughter. No.
The son how he is lovable, as son will be taken over the lap, even the daughter will be taken over the lap. Both are same.
The Society is badmash(naughty), so the ladies are under the spell of exploitation. This is how?
As per Paramapuruśa both are same.
Paramapuruśa devotees, may be in this time they are devotees, but till yesterday they were very degraded and a great sinners.
Even Paramapuruśa also thinks that how to get rid those that have been accumulated and also get them liberated from that sin, because it is the duty of Supreme Father, to think of a bright future, and also it is the responsibility of a Father as well to make that future.
So my child you do one thing?
You give me your sins to ME, your sins, I shall be carrying it, You give.
But the devotee never wants to give, HE says, never, never, never; My heavy load of sins, I shall carry, why should I give to YOU, I shall give you to eatables, drinks, sing songs, dance, these things I shall do.
But Paramapuruśa always thinks that my children how can they overcome this? They have done such a degraded action, so it is very difficult.
In HIS mind, this type of anguish always remains?
So what does HE do?
Without his/her permission, HE takes away the sins, without his/her knowing.
If at all without any body’s knowing, if you take away something, for that the name is “stealing”.
Paramapuruśa what does he steals from you?
Without telling, HE takes away our sins, so he steals, in Saḿskrta, “Harana” means “stealing”.
Harati pápah yah sah Hari.
HE who steals the sin, he who takes away the sin, HE is Hari.
So one of the name of HIM is Hari.
Diikśa if you taken means what?
You have come under the shelter of Parama Puruśa, Parama Pita’s(Supreme Father) shelter you have come. It becomes an obligation to Parama Pita’s(Supreme Father), to take away the sin without his/here knowledge, Kuryát Pápakśayaḿ tatah.
What is the purpose behind taking the Diikśa mean?
The sin will also get exhausting.
To take Diikśa must be, every intelligent persons as well as every man’s prime responsibility.
Regarding Diikśa, so much importance has been explained and narrated in detail in these spiritual scriptures.
