Guide to Sri Saraswati Mantra Diksha


Sri Saraswati is the Goddess of Learning, Arts, and Wisdom. To bless and inspire students, Her Holiness Amma Sri Karunamayi will be offering initiation, or diksha, into the most sacred and auspicious Sri Saraswati Mantra. Initiation will be offered to students between 5 and 24 years of age. This diksha is given only once in a student’s life, as such those who have already received initiation from Amma may not register for repeat initiations.


Diksha is a sacred process through which the divine energy of the mantra is transmitted to the student along with extra special blessings. Amma will inscribe the sacred letters of the Sri Saraswati Mantra on the tongues of the students, using a stem from the sacred tulsi plant that has been dipped in honey. Since time immemorial, this method of inscribing Sri Saraswati Mantra has been used to convey the blessings of Sri Saraswati Devi to students. Instructions will be available on daily chanting of this sacred mantra.


The tulsi plant, which is the embodiment of purity, signifies that the student's words must become absolutely pure and true, and the sweet honey signifies that the student's words and thoughts must always contain the sweetness of kindness and compassion. Thus, the precious Sri Saraswati Mantra blesses students with sweet and pure words, thoughts and actions.


Sri Saraswati Mantra diksha bestows abundant blessings on a student, such that their mind will blossom with the great qualities of concentration, creativity, discrimination and attention. Through the power of Sri Saraswati Mantra, students' study habits and academic performance will improve. In addition to these intellectual enhancements, Sri Saraswati Mantra also enables students to have right understanding of how to use knowledge for spiritual development and service to society.

NOTE: On this year’s tour Amma will be initiating students either on Student Retreat Day or the Individual Blessing Day in each city. Please check the tour schedule to find out when initiation is offered in your city.
