On Retreat and Pilgrimage
for most of 2017
Dear friends and lovers of Kali, dear community,

Retreat and pilgrimage will continue through much of 2017, and thus it is likely that this website will not be updated, nor will any emails be sent from this website mailing list during this time. The only exception is that perhaps there will be emails sent during the Spring and Autumn Navaratris.

If you don't yet have a copy, In Praise of Adya Kali: Approaching the Primordial Dark Goddess Through the Song of Her Hundred Names is still available in the USA through amazon.com in both paperback and digital formats.  

Until we meet again, I send each of you many blessings and all good wishes on the path. May there be fruition.

Jai Ma,

Aditi Devi


Thus says the 

Shaktisangama Tantra (II.52)


 Woman is the foundation of the world;

The universe is her form.

Woman is the foundation of the world;

She is the true form of the body.

Whatever form she takes,

Whether the form of a man or a woman,

Is the superior form.

In woman is the form of all things,

Of all that lives and moves in the world.

There is no jewel rarer than a woman,

No condition superior to that of a woman.

There is not, nor has been, nor will be

Any destiny to equal that of a woman.

There is no kingdom, no wealth,

To be compared with a woman.

There is no prayer to equal a woman.

There is not, nor has been, nor will be

Any yoga to compare with a woman,

No mystical formula nor asceticism

To match a woman.

There are not, nor have been, nor will be

Any riches more valuable than woman.
