Dikshas and Vows Taken During Mahasamadhi Celebrations

After seven years of study, preparation, proving themselves to their guru by living the teachings in all aspects of their lives, Mrunal and Padmaja Patel received their mantra diksha on November 1st, which means receiving spiritual initiation from Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami to chant Aum Namah Sivaya 108 times daily on rudraksha japa mala. Prior to this, they were chanting Aum Saravanabhava. It is the first of two dikshas that all sishyas in Saiva Siddhanta Church prepare to receive. They are now known as dikshasishyas.

Also, Mrunal's mother Hansa Patel took her four vows—with assistance from Padmaja and Jigisha, Mrunal's sister, also a Himalayan Academy student—entering Saiva Siddhanta Church as a vratasishya. Congratulations, Dadiji!
