Mokshadharma Grihastha Diksha


“Grihastha in Hinduism is the second stage of life of the married head of the family. This is the householder, the second stage in the four stages of life (varna-ashrama-dharma). After completing the period of apprenticeship and completing the rite of returning home, the "twice-born" had to get married as soon as possible. Marriage was a religious necessity and a social responsibility. He pursued 3 goals:

  • 1. The fulfillment of a religious duty through sacrifices;
  • 2. Сontinuation of the genus to ensure the normal posthumous existence of ancestors;
  • 3. Sense gratification (kama).

The householder stage was seen as the center and foundation of the entire social structure. The householder should do charity work, providing food to everyone that he can. There were rules that governed the behavior of the householder. Strict adherence to them promised longevity, healthy and numerous offspring, inexhaustible wealth, the accumulation of karmic merits." (M. Albedil)

Diksha for laymen-grihasthas is the next step after receiving the Symbol of Faith. It is a way to strengthen your spiritual choice and truly begin your spiritual life in the Sanatana Dharma tradition by receiving a new spiritual name, mantra from a spiritual Master, and by taking the initial spiritual vows of Grihastha.

The Diksha ceremony for the Grihasthas (family lay householders) is held once a year in October on the Dharma Maha Sabha at the same time as the Karma-Sannyasy Diksha.
