(4) Initiation

After brief instructions you will receive shaktipat directly from Durga Ma and become initiated into the practice of Sahaja Yoga (shaktipat kundalini yoga, Surrender Meditation). Initiation generally takes about one hour and will be held concurrent with your Intensive.

You may receive shaktipat spontaneously at any time during an Intensive, or even before or afterwards.



Durga Ma offers support for initiates at Mystical Tidbits where you will find entries on shaktipat and sahaja yoga sadhana, the practice that follows initiation, and translations of short excerpts from Sanskrit texts. You may leave questions for Durga Ma, and share experiences and have discussions with other initiates in the "Meditation Experiences" section.
