Is there anyway to negate or end the bond created by mantra diksha between student and guru.I have read the guru disciple relationships lasts throughout lifetimes. I find that I have been following a false teacher/guru for the past 15 years who is fairly violent towards me both physically and verbally and somewhat demonic. The guru has alot of siddhi and is physically agressive towards me. I would like to disentangle myself but have no other guru or path for now to go to. What is the best way to end the bond created by diksha in this case.

Re: Questions on Diksha and False Gurus

First find out the authenticity of your Guru. Is he a disciple of any Guru? If so then what lineage or Sampradaya.
If answers to it is no, he is a false Guru. His Diksha is also false and leave as soon as possible. Practice devotion to your favourite God while leading a life of truth.
If the answers to it is yes, other points to be probed to conclude if he is a false Guru or not.
In that case, take his permission to leave him. A true Guru always gives permission to his disciple if he wants to leave and discard Diksha, mantra etc, after some discussions.

It is advised in the scriptures one must be careful while choosing a Guru. Else life is hell.

Hope this answers your questions.

Re: The guru is a hindu saint in

You are welcome.
Self-made saints are bogus. What they teach is their mental hallucinations projected by their egos.
Who has not served any Guru cannot become Guru for others. This simple rule of truth people fail to notice.

Hari Om!

You can, just make sure you really want

You don't really know if the guru is false or not and of course people who tell you that he is so or not without knowing him or withnessing your relationship with him are just irresponsibly speculating and should be disregarded.

Before you leave him just make sure that it is because you really feel that he is not advancing you spiritually in whatever he does and not because the path with him feels hard and unpleasant. Yes, a true effective spiritual path is hardly ever an enjoyable journey and many times it's a frightening and disturbing roller coaster. Many true genuine gurus will make you suffer for your benefit (like the pain involved in a medical or psychological treatment) and make your mind crazily revolve and consequntly paint the guru black. On the other hand, there are, of course, gurus who are simply false and corrupted.

But this does not matter, if you are resolved BEYOND ALL DOUBT that you want to leave him then of course you can. The diksha is active as long as you agree to it. By its nature, it cannot bind your soul if you conciously decide to depart it (unless you have a belief that you can't and/or you have subconcious fears about the consequences). Just bear in mind, that once you break the diksha, you will not be able to have this specific connection anymore.

In order to eliminate the diksha connection, simply sit in meditation and focus on your command to break the diksha. You can visualize it, you can imagine yourself in an energetic sphere isolating you from the energetic representation of that guru, although it's not really necessary. You don't need to sit for a long time, the task will be then performed by your subconcious.

Good luck and love :-)

Absolutely, you can

Absolutely, you can disconnect from the diksha bond with a guru. As the previous commenter suggested, you must make sure that you are aware of all your motives for breaking the connection before you do it, you will not be able to reestablish it again with that guru.
