Divine Shakti Foundation organizes and hosts numerous festivals, conferences, talks and other events to inspire and empower women and youth in India and also all over the world. We also regularly participate in high level forums domestically and internationally to contribute to discussions that will shape the agenda and advancement of gender equality, women’s empowerment, abating climate change and other critical campaigns and to inspire others to take action too.
DSF regularly organizes events and programs for the children in the schools that it sponsors including events like science fairs and celebrations like International Children’s Day, World Water Day, Global Handwashing Day, as well as all the major Indian holidays where the beautiful children gather at one of the free schools run by our Divine Shakti Foundation to create fun and exciting moments to honor their talents and capacity and help them be ever more energized and inspired for their future.
A two-day Summit focused solely on women – their dreams and challenges, their history and their future, their needs and their contributions. Women can, will and must empower the world – but first they must recognise their own power!
A robust panel of faith, social and civic leaders and change-makers was brought together at Parmarth Niketan for a first-ever two-day Nari Sansad Conference focusing solely on women and filled with insightful discourses, and energetic development and planning – focused on upliftment and empowerment of women. Organizers of the historic event believe that any discussion about Indian women and their empowerment must be removed from the western social concepts that have long-dominated the discourse in favor of one that is distinctly from an Indian perspective. Since Indian women are the axis of power in the home, while also participating in the social and economic lives of their communities, their needs and viewpoints must be recognized and integrated into the current fabric of society. That was the goal of the conference!
At the recent Parliament, HH Param Pujya Swamiji Welcomed the Hon’ble Governor of Uttar Pradesh, Smt Anandiben Patelji; the Hon’ble Governor of Kerala, Shri Arif Mohammad Khanji; Nationalist Thinker, Shri KN Govindacharyaji; Divine Shakti Foundation President, Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswatiji; Nari Sansad Executive Convenor and senior journalist, Shri Ravishankar Tiwariji; Delhi University’s Dr. Rachna Bimalji; and, others.
International Women’s Day is celebrated around the world to shine light on the beauty and power of the Divine Shakti. The day has a heightened significance on our calendars, with special ceremonies and celebrations throughout the day to honor women.
On this day annually DSF together with GIWA and Parmarth Niketan organize a large-scale event on the banks of Mother Ganga to honor and celebrate women including a beautiful day-long series of workshops, presentations and displays focusing on the collaborative educational and vocational training programs. International Women’s Day is the perfect day to take the time to worship – not just the murti in the mandir – but every woman in our lives, whether our own mother, sister, daughter, or wife…and, to worship and celebrate the Divine Feminine in all of God’s Creation
We recognise that it is time for women to rise and shine. It’s time for them to be and do the change they want to see in the world. It’s time for women to re-vision and co-create a future in which they are revered, respected and celebrated for all that they contribute to and sustain in our world- whether as full-time professionals, housewives and/or entrepreneurs, they need to be empowered, given access to education and resources to allow them to be active agents of change in their societies.
