This two-day gathering brought together academics, religious leaders, and scholars from throughout India to re-visit the story of Mother Sita and Sri Ram. The aim of this gatheirng was to look at the pastimes through a new lens; a lens that is more empowering both to women and to men. Topics discussed included how to awaken the higher masculine and feminine energies, Shakti as a force for change, the ecology of Sita and more.
