The film traces Gada Mataji, the first female disciple of Upāsanī
Bābā Mahārāj, who established Kanyākumārī Sthān at Sakori in
Maharashtra. Keeping the Vedic ritual practices in view in which a
couple always perform rituals together, Upāsanī has taught that the
power of dharma lies in both male and female aspects of
creation. The film documents the history of the first women
gurukula established in the last century that created history by
defying orthodox practices of male domination in the priesthood. The
gurukula offers training and residence to women who are
initiated to Vedic learning and become Brahmavādinīs as 'Strī Śakti'
is the power house for Indian religious belief system.
