Stonefort Ashram/new website

Dear Chakra,

Please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I am happy to announce a new rather broad topic website particularly for Vaisnava women and third gender. Taking my own advice and conclusions from these last 25 years or so of experience concerning women and third gender devotees and our place, or rather lack of it, in present day Vaisnava communities, I am working even more diligently toward an ashram created by and for women: a grass roots, independant (gasp!) feminine project in the southern hills and forests of Illinois.

One goal of the ashram, among many, is to provide a protected and positively focused ashram/retreat for women in general as well as a place where third gender women have a genuine home/retreat for their particular creative development in bhakti.

Our new website is still in the rough a bit but informative and now accessable we welcome everyone to view it at:

If Chakra would like to publish the Home page article, "Stonefort Ashram" now located on our site to help inform your readers of our intentions and general history please feel free to do so.

I look forward to hearing from anyone with feedback or input. God bless everyone. Hare Krishna

Yours in service,
Dhanistha dasi
