My disciplic succession

It is fitting that I am in the line of disciplic succession founded by Jahnava Thakurani, wife of Nityananda Prabhu. Nityananda was a renunciate who went to Puri with Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Mahaprabhu later told him to go back to Bengal and marry so that people would not think it is necessary to be a renunciate in order to attain pure love of God.

I am also a former renunciate who is now married with the same mission. It is also my mission to show that it is not necessary to be an Indian or to mimic Indian Vedic culture in order to attain pure love of God. These devotional teachings must be accessible to Westerners living a Western lifestyle.

I am also a feminist. I am happy to be in a line founded by a woman, with three other women gurus in the line. Patriarchical renunciates have controlled religion for too long. The feminine must be restored, especially in a devotional sect like this that considers Sri Radha, the Supreme Goddess, to be superior to Sri Krishna, the Supreme God.
