* First and foremost my heartfelt thanks to SWAMIJI, I felt very happy by this Deeksha. After this I am feeling free myself.

* It was an interesting experience.

* I felt subtle warm feeling in body, very low intensity.

* I got a glimpse of white light, my mind is peaceful & feels happy.

* I felt white light near the point of touch of Guruji’s finger.

* The moment Guru touched an intense blue light emerged out at darkness for few seconds and I felt warmness all over the body.

* When SWAMIJI touched my forehead, at the point, I felt that it was vibrating, and it continued to be in that state for some time. In that moment my mind was full blank, i.e. no Thoughts at all. It was a great experience. Thank you.

* The truth is that I got name and fame in the society and prosperity after the last Shaktipat initiation.

* During this meditation session I felt the thought free state and concentrated to keep my mind like that. I want to stay in this environment for the rest of my life.

* There was darkness when the meditation started, when GURUJI came near me I experienced the white light and the darkness. Om! Salutations to the GURU’s feet. How can I repay your debt? I experienced - Body became very light and floating in air.

* Sri Sharad Mahale from Bombay who received the Shaktipat through remote has expressed his experience that at the time of initiation my head and upper part of the body started vibrating and continued for some time.
