Origin of the system

Acharya Jothi Siddhar Jothinanda designed this system with easiness of use by the commoner in mind.  For a long time, distances and practicalities were not giving everyone easy access to the complete Mahalakshmi Diksha (which is done directly). While the effectiveness of the supreme Mahalakshmi Diksha can’t be replicated online, this Ashta Lakshmi Diksha series aims to provide at least 50% of its effectiveness. The Ashtalakshmi Diksha series gives access to the divine attributes, and the direct Mahalakshmi Diksha creates a direct connection between you and the divine consciousness of Mahalakshmi (who has all attributes of Ashta Lakshmis). 


Since meeting Sri Pranaji in 2004, Jothinanda has been a part of every spiritual Journey that Pranashakty took. He was initiated by Sri Pranaji as an Acharya in 2008 and is also from the world’s first batch of students who completed the Shakty Enlightenment Program.
