" O Devi Durga, whoever Remembers You with Devotion, You Remove the very Root of their Fear.
Whoever Meditates on You as being present within their own Hearts, with Extreme Devotion, You Bestow (i.e. Reveal to them) Your Auspicious Nature "
Durga Ma is the Mother that responds to the sufferings of Her children. A fortress of Shakti- She can relieve our circumstantial difficulties as well as offer strength, protection and fortitude.
Durga is the force that organizes the matrix of physical reality to be more congruent with our true hearts-desire to wake up! Therefore, She also refines what our true Desires are. Her Victory is over that which keeps us from knowing ourselves as Her emanations.
Ultimately, this keeps us going on the path of growing and Awakening so that we may eventually embody Her deepest compassion. We will practice together to enter directly into Her energetic territory (Her light body organized from sound pulsations) within the container of traditional Tantric practice. (Mantra, Yantra and Meditation)
What is Sadhana?
Sadhana is commonly translated as "spiritual practice". More accurately, it is translated as that which gives support or peace to. Within traditional tantric systems there are very specific methodologies to awaken consciousness.
In the traditional Tantric streams there is "no Tantra without mantra and yantra". These are the methodologies in which we will approach Durga Ma. There will be contextual teachings given in order to establish a proper orientation and “seat” to approach Durga.
Sadhana gives a container in which to create the precise circumstances both inner and outer to understand on an experiential level these natures of our very own minds and hearts. The blessing of a lineage practice is that it has been "tested" for thousands of years by practitioners.
In Traditional Tantric wisdom streams the Deity is the ground of Consciousness that we orient towards. Often confused with worshipping something outside ourselves....the initiated student begins to understand through the direct experience of Mantra & visualization that there is no Other. These Light Beings are a literal system of
Consciousness and the mantra is the genetic code to begin to Awaken these energies from the inside out.
Sadhana becomes our daily devotional discipline that begins to give a rhythm and timing to our entire lives that is distinct from both cultural and psychological time.
