Bhakti Center presents Urban Devi Ladies Sanga with Rukmini Walker.
Urban Devi is an interactive women’s discussion circle exploring the connection between the devotional wisdom of the Bhakti tradition and the lives of women in the 21st century. Sessions begin by Rukmini sharing her thoughts on a devotional verse, song, or commentary, as a stimulus to the open sharing of ideas, struggles, inspirations and hopes.
The theme for April’s Urban Devi sanga is “ A Mother’s Love”.
Rukmini Walker met her guru, A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, at the age of 16 and began a lifelong study in Bhakti-yoga under his guidance. Today she is an activist in interfaith dialogue and women’s spiritual empowerment, an artist, and a successful entrepreneur. Her business, As Kindred Spirits aims to connect the finest American designers with charitable and fair trade ventures. The beloved kirtan artist, Gaura Vani, is her son. She lives with her husband in the Washington, DC metro area.
