Spiritual Initiation or Deeksha (Gnana Upadesam):
When the life force is brought from the base of spine upward through the central canal (Sushumna nadi) of the spinal cord crossing the backbrain and to the forehead eye by the grace of experienced spiritual instructor , it is called initiation. The screen covering the intellect is pierced by spiritual power generated by the Guru and then one can experience a throbbing or a tickling sensation or a sensation of heat , sometimes cold..
