Diksha in Shri Bawa Lal Sampraday, vaishnav tradition of Hinduism, is the initiation given by Acharya Shri Maharajji of the Vaishnav Gaddi of Shri Dhianpur Dham.
At the time of initiation, a puja ceremony is performed with vedic procedure by a learned Brahmin, where a devotee is instructed and takes the major vows and after then, Acharya Shri Maharajji gives him the divine Guru Mantra.
The devotee is prohibited to disclose the divine Guru Mantra to others because the tradition holds that one can learn it only from the Guru. Devotees are not allowed to give among themselves, but can learn from each other if they have taken it before from Achaya Shri Maharajji.
