World Shakti Day - Sahasra Suvasi Puja
History of World Shakti Day
We commenced celebrating the World Shakti Day from 2018 to promote inclusivity and women empowerment in the sphere of learning of the holy scriptures of Sanatana Dharma including Vedas and performance of rituals. The 1st edition was celebrated in 2019 with a Sahasra Suvasini puja (first ever in Canada) that was graced by Shree Subramanyam Swamy, BJP MP. The 2nd edition in 2019 was celebrated with a first ever “Ladies Only Shata Chandi” at SVTS, Rochester, USA. The 3rd edition in 2020 was an online celebration (due to Covid) with a double Sahasra Chandi and a Shree Lalita Sahasranama koti archana.
Our events are always inclusive without any discrimination based on any denomination of birth-caste or gender. Ladies play a leading role and as equals in all rituals and homams. With the blessings of our Gurumandali and Shiva-Shakti, our global team of devoted and highly qualified and trained Ritwiks in recitation of Shree Rudram/Chamakam/Mahanyasam/Kramam etc and Shree Durga Saptashati (aka Devi Mahatmyam) are self-sufficient in the performance of all the required pujas and homams. No financial remuneration (sambhavana) is demanded by any GuruCool member for performance of these mega events.
