Bhadra Kali met Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati in the late ’90s, during Ma’s first visit to Atlanta, describing Her as a colorful mix of Mother Teresa / Janis Joplin & Bette Midler… going full speed on a Harley… with Her hair on fire. Following that first darshan, with Ma, Bhadra Kali began attending weekly meditations with Swami Jaya Devi. She wasn’t sure why she was there, but she knew she always felt better. Bhadra Kali practices Bhakti Yoga. Professionally working as a Gardener and Designer, Bhadra Kali has embraced the opportunity to care for the gardens and grounds of Kashi Atlanta, since 2004. Often working with a mix of volunteers, her passion for the care of the Ashram is apparent. Bhadra kali also prepares meals as a member of our Kashi Atlanta Care Team. She volunteers as part of a team coordinating community and fund raising dinners.
