Durga Ma, now 71, lives on what is given and the proceeds from her music, books, courses and trainings (Phoenix Metaphysical Institute.com). A year ago, her primary benefactor passed away, and her other main support turned 99, leaving her in a very precarious situation. A pledge program was initiated for the joint purpose of materializing her mission of SKY Haven and providing housing and essential needs.
As things now stand:
The monthly proceeds from the above means, range from $400 to $556.
The average monthly cost of living in Phoenix is $3172.
Expenditures for Durga Ma’s living arrangements average $2573 monthly.
As per scriptural injunction, Durga Ma does not “work for a living”. But she does work for us, whether we pay her or not.
