The Divine Feminine in Action

March 7, 2009 by Andrew Baerthel

Divine Mother RoomThe latest video update on the process of restoring the Divine Mother Room at Yasodhara Ashram! With footage of the current state of the interior and exterior, as well as inspiring commentary by those involved with the project.

Swami Radha’s vision of having a “little temple in the woods” dedicated to the worship of Divine Mother is beginning to manifest!  Ashram Residents and Karma Yogis have been working on the project with dedication, patience, and receptivity since the interior deconstruction began in the fall of 2007 (see the Lightwaves post ‘Little Temple in the Woods‘)

Last fall the Ashram brought on board a professional timber framer conservator, Joern Wingender of the Traditional Timber Framing Company in Harrop, BC, with his restoration crew consisting of Brent Firkser and Dave Sharun.  In this video, Satya, an Ashram resident and one of the key people involved with the project, talks to Joern about where the project is now and what’s going to happen next!

We gratefully welcome donations to help with continued work on the Divine Mother Room project.  You can donate online or by contacting the Ashram at 1-800-661-8711.

  3. inspiring…doubly so, given today is International Women’s day and that I just finished reading about the feminist movement in Buddhism relating to Tara…her embodiment of many qualities of the feminine. Tonight at Radha Victoria satsang we will be chanting to Her -compassion and enlightenment to all beings. And for the Divine Feminine in Action.

  4. Satya!!! You look radiant! So great to see this project in its transformation. It reminded me of the picture of you and Palma with hardhats and hammers….Divine Mother’s handbuilders!
    It feels so warm…it will be so beautiful to visit!
    many blessings to you all
    “waiting, listening and responding” – thanks Satya, I needed that reminder ;-)

  12. Thank you for this update! It is already beautiful and I liked hearing about the rest of the plans. The wood interior is rich and warm already. And also heartwarming is to know that it’s being done with the utmost concern for the environment.
