Replace Effort with Experience
Experiential Meditation will take you on the most amazing journey you will ever experience. Contrary to most teachings on yoga meditation, not only does it not rely on will power, it excludes it altogether. Experiential Meditation is entirely spontaneous and one-hundred percent experience.
This mode of meditation has its roots in the Indus Valley region more than forty thousand years ago. The First Master, having been observed to offer herself to Truth, resulted in two streams of followers: those who tried to duplicate what they had seen, and those who went to her to learn her secret. Experiential Meditation stems from the latter of these two original lineages.
This unusual form of meditation has been through many names. Durga Ma has settled on the name Experiential Meditation because it gives some hint of the nature of this amazing process.
Before now, it had to be said that this kind of meditation is not for everyone, but things have changed with Durga Ma’s new program. Now you can pick and choose among three versions of this meditation, or make your way through all three and then decide.

Shaktipat & Experiential Meditation
The key to receiving shaktipat is surrender to God/Truth. Hence, shaktipat initiation is followed by surrender-based meditation.
Like lighting one candle with another candle, shaktipat is transmitted for the purpose of freeing the Life Energy in the body to awaken kundalini naturally and safely. By this means, you can reach deeper states of meditation, make faster progress, and achieve divine union and liberation.
Prove God/Truth to yourself through personal experience in meditation. Experiential Meditation naturally follows shaktipat diksha and keeps your candle lit—shaktipat gets it started, Experiential Meditation maintains it and takes you to the goal.
Three Paths in One
There are three components to a solid pathway to spiritual fulfillment: knowledge, action (practice) and devotion. These three are often seen as separate, but neither knowledge nor action will succeed without the fundamental platform of devotion. They belong together as surely as these three belong together and prove God/Truth:
- The written teachings of those who have completed their journey to Divine Union and know the way.
- The oral teachings of one’s own teacher that have been passed down through that person’s lineage of teachers.
- Personal experience gained through putting the teachings into action in one’s own practice. The primary practice of Durga Ma’s lineage is Experiential Surrender Meditation (Shaktipat Kundalini Yoga).
The teachings and practice of this meditation bring all of these essentials together in one vital path. If you are not wedded to instant gratification and feel-good spirituality but seek Truth by any name, Experiential Meditation may be for you.
Sooner or later, everyone meditates.
