Open to All ~ Invite Your Friends!

These are extraordinary times, and Durga is a Goddess of incredible strength and justice whose power offers compassion, calm, and order to situations of potential chaos, destruction, or conflict. Carlos de León invites students and friends of Ontogony to gather online for the transmissions and practices of Durga.

The meditations based on Durga, the Great Mother, help us to remove limitations—the emotional and mental obscurations that, for example, keep us, personally and collectively, from shining with the divine light we all carry within our hearts. The series has nine events, culminating in a gathering celebrating the eleventh anniversary of the Ontogony teachings in this format. 

About Durga, the Practice:

Durga is the name taken by a courageous goddess whose first appearance in a 1500-year-old myth was as a beautiful warrior seated upon a lion. It was a troubled time. A tyrannical demon, through dreadful austerities, had acquired invincible strength. Neither Vishnu nor Shiva could prevail against this buffalo-headed monster known and feared as Mahishasur (or Durgama). The beautiful goddess took him on and, through the collective energies of Shakti, vanquished him. Victorious from her epic battle, proof that the divine light of truth and wisdom prevails over disorder and pain, she became Durga: invincible, unconquerable, and unassailable. 

The nine forms of Maa Durga are Shailaputri, Brahmacharini, Chandraghanta, Kushmanda, Skandamata, Katyayani, Kalaratri, Mahagauri, and Siddhidatri. ‘Durga’, in Sanskrit, means “she who is incomprehensible or difficult to reach.” Goddess Durga is a form of Shakti, worshipped for her graciousness and terrifyingness as the mother of the universe. She represents the infinite power of the Universe and is a symbol of female dynamism. The manifestation of Goddess Durga is said to emerge from Her formless essence, and the two are inseparable.

Today, in this assortment of ecological, political, social, and religious crises, we find that a 1500-year-old myth (the Devi Mahatmya) and a millennia-old ritual worship of the Great Goddess (Durga) provide philosophical and spiritual insight. We can be aided and led in the process of profound transformation, whose need we now face globally and personally.

Carlos shares the following practices in the nine primary forms of Durga transmission:

Maa Durga, the primary manifestation, confronts the demons of arrogance, pride, hypocrisy, greed, rage, discrimination, and injustice, opening the pathway for our liberation and enhancing the experience of wisdom and compassion.

  • Goddess Shailputri encourages faith in yourself and healthy lifestyles.
  • Goddess Brahmacharini teaches us all to remain focused in life through meditation.
  • Goddess Chandraghanta inspires positive living and being prepared for life's challenges.
  • Goddess Kushmanda cultivates an honest effort to live our meaningful dreams and the ability to manifest them.
  • Goddess Skandamata expands the soft values of life, like being polite and understanding towards each other.
  • Goddess Katyayani develops the ability to take initiative and fight against injustice.
  • Goddess Kaalratri destroys all negative emotions like greed, cheating, hatred, and jealousy.
  • Goddess Mahagauri teaches us to stay cheerful and live with an open heart and confidence.
  • Goddess Siddhidatri increases knowledge and feelings of security, which are things one should learn from this goddess.

Join us for the entire Live Streaming and Online series spanning from October 27, 2023, to September 27, 2024. Enjoy the transformational fruits of Durga's practice. By practicing with a unified vision, we discover new avenues for spiritual growth and expand our consciousness, compassion and gratitude.
