SHARANYA: The Maa Batakali Cultural Mission, Inc.
SHARANYA is a federally-recognized Devi Mandir (Goddess Temple) and non-profit organization whose work is spiritual service in and for the world. We are a volunteer-run community dedicated to embodied spirituality, sadhana (spiritual practice), wisdom teachings, and worship of Goddess in Her myriad forms and in relationship to an unpathologized Sacred Masculine. Ours is a (R)evolutionary Shakta Tantra that brings together ancient and modern, East and West. We especially honor Kali Maa, our beloved Dark Mother, as a change agent for our times, recognizing that She resides both inside and outside everyday awareness...helping to transform, empower, and heal individuals, communities, and the planet. We make a commitment to action and service for the betterment of all beings and invite everyone to join us in the work of engaged spirituality.
