Teaching on Grace by Shakti Durga

Karmic grace is like a life insurance policy, house insurance, car insurance and every other kind of insurance rolled into one. Karmic grace is developed by giving, forgiving and serving. There is no way around this necessity, which is often overlooked, and such a simple key to the breakthrough of previously impossible situations.

Developing karmic grace inevitably develops and cleanses the heart chakra. It liberates the heart chakra, which is the lock on the Divine doorway. There is always another level we can reach with developing grace and the practices here get stronger with time as do any spiritual practices. 

Karma yoga is the yoga of service. It is doing things for other people that they need help with. It is deliberately doing things for the benefit of others. Bhakti yoga is the advanced practice of karma yoga. It is the doing of everything with love. If you are washing up, do it with love. If you are cooking, working, or purchasing something in a shop, do it with love. This practice makes a huge difference to our spiritual and emotional unfoldment.


All new positions available will be listed on this page, so please check for updates.
