What is the Deeksha/ the Oneness Blessing?
Deeksha is a sanskrit word for benediction or gift.
Deeksha (Oneness Blessing) initiates a neurobiological change in the brain that when complete enables the senses to be free from the interference of the mind. When the senses are unclouded by the mind’s interpretations, a natural clarity of perception occurs with accompanying spontaneous feelings of joy, inner calmness and connection to the Oneness in everything.
The Oneness Blessing is not a concept, nor a religion, nor does it promulgate any required beliefs. Each recipient brings to the experience their own concepts of the Ultimate, be they religious, scientific, profane or divine.
What are the effects of the Oneness Blessing?
The energy is intelligent and it interacts and transforms each person in a manner that is particular to that person’s needs.
Evolution in one’s consciousness manifests as changes in all spheres of our life – health, wealth, relationships & spiritual growth. Deeksha brings about a growth in consciousness, thus heightening your life experience.

Deeksha works by awakening Kundalini, a latent spiritual energy located at the base of the spine. This creates a gradual shift in consciousness, freeing you from the suffering created by the mind, balancing the body’s natural healing energies and attuning the brain to higher levels of awareness.
Deeksha neither requires practicing a particular way of living nor is an initiation into following a new path. It does not bind one to any philosophy or ideology. It is not a concept, nor a religion, nor does it promulgate any required beliefs. Each recipient brings to the experience their own concepts of the Ultimate, be they religious, scientific, profane or divine.
About Oneness from their site:
“Oneness in many regards has a highly scientific approach, quite evident in many of Sri Amma Bhagavan’s teachings and this actually comes as a relief to the many Oneness followers ranging from the younger generation and the intellectual/elite classes, who abhor blind belief and unscientific philosophy at all levels.
This kind of a vastly liberal and truly secular approach could be attributed to a very unique perception of Oneness that the founders Sri Amma Bhagavan share, who emphasize the beauty and importance of religious and cultural variety as every human being is unique and cannot discover his true self through one single path. It is therefore, Their message to the world that Oneness is not necessarily about making everyone embrace the same system of belief, doctrine or tradition but more a process of discovering the truth that is inherent in every tradition.
Oneness as a concept is beautiful, as an experience is staggering.”
