Darshan (Seeing/Receiving Blessings from the Divine)

Darshan” is a Sanskrit word for meeting or experiencing an avatar, saint, guide, teacher or a sacred place for the purpose of absorbing the divine energy being offered.

All spiritual traditions hold that the most powerful transmission of divine energy and divine experience comes when the mind is quiet. To quote Mother Meera,

“For the mind to flower it must move beyond what it knows… People are too active and rarely sit quietly.  In silence one can receive more because all one’s activities become concentrated at one point…God is silent. Everything comes out of silence. In silence more work can be done. The true experience of bliss is without words.”
