The intent of the siddha lineage is to awaken human beings as fast as possible through the energy of Shaktipat. The masters of this lineage have the ability to ripen a person’s karma in order to prepare them for the moment when they will receive Shaktipat. This ripening takes place in the lifetimes just before you meet your guru.
These lifetimes can often be very difficult because the elimination of karma takes place at an extremely accelerated pace so that the individual’s karma, both positive and negative, is brought into equilibrium. It is this state of karmic equilibrium which signals the guru that that you are ready for Shaktipat.
