Shaktipat Roundtable

3rd Degree initiates are expected to join Shaktipat Roundtable, a private website for initiates only.

Roundtable is your means of accessing the teachings you will need for the continued practice of full surrender Experiential Meditation, and to reach advanced stages. It will provide you with as much information and guidance as you could ever want, need, or expect to get online.

In Roundtable you can ask questions, share experiences, and engage in discussions with other initiates. Durga Ma checks in periodically, and presents new information and Tutorial documents each week.
