On Retreat and Pilgrimage
for all of 2016
Dear friends and lovers of Kali, dear community,

I will be in retreat and on pilgrimage until the end of 2016, 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 Autumn Navaratris.

There was a small technical challenge in our email list system; if you signed up on this website to receive emails any time beginning in October, 2015, until the end of retreat in autumn 2016, you will need to sign up again at the end of 2016.

If there are Autumn Navaratri emails sent out, the email sign-up system will open up again before  Navaratri and remain available until the end of Navaratri in order that those who would like the Navatratri emails might sign up. 

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.
