What are the symptoms,how we will come to know that, a person got mantra siddhi , after a "N" number of jaap of a particular mantra?
Say, if it is shakteya tradition , then about bala parameswari or Kaali moolamantra, if a person completed many lakhs/(Crores?) of HER moolamantra, will that person get mantrasiddhi?
how come he- sadhak, upasaka - will come to know, realize that, he got a siddhi.
Or in shaivism, can I do jaap of om nama:ssivayaa --- whenever I get time (while travelling, inside office, when we speak to others etc ) -- and after many months/ years of continuous jaap, will I get siddhi?
