CE Workshop | The Greatness of the Goddess

with Dr. Raj Balkaran. This workshop explores the vision of the divine feminine we see in ancient India’s first Sanskrit Goddess text: Devī Māhātmya (literally, the Greatness of the Goddess). The Indian Great Goddess is understood in this text as power itself (śakti), which all beings – humans, animals, gods – draw on. Unpack questions like, “What would it mean to have a supreme cosmic force, which is feminine vs. masculine?” “What wisdom were the ancients trying to encode in the face of power we see in the Devī Māhāmtya?” Join Dr. Raj Balkaran as he narrates and decodes these ancient tales testifying to the greatness of the Goddess.
