Shakti & Prakriti Event with Renowned Environmentalist Dr. Vandana Shivaji

January 25, 2013

As part of the Divine Shakti Festival, the Ganga Action Parivar camp at the Kumbh Mela in Allahabad was honoured to host inspirational environmentalist Dr. Vandana Shiva as guest speaker at an afternoon conference held to discuss the protection of Mother Earth, in connection with the celebration of the divine feminine.

Said Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji, “One of the meanings of the word ‘Kumbha’ is ‘the womb of creation.’ So it is fortuitous that here at the Kumbha Mela, we discuss the importance and the spiritual value that the feminine has held for millennia.”

Said Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati, “The conference has brought together women from around the world. Yogacharyas, meditation leaders, inspirational speakers and participants have come to this sacred land to delve deep within themselves and to connect their inner divine feminine with the Divine Feminine of the Mother Goddess, Mother Ganga, Mother Earth and Mother Nature.”

Other speakers at the conference included Shri Prem Babaji of Brazil, Patrick McCollum, a leader of the Earth Traditions lineage, and Chandanni Miglino, from California, Kundalini yoga teacher and organizer of the Divine Shakti Festival.

We were also treated to beautiful dance and musical performances by visiting children from the far north-eastern states of India.
