In a world plagued by poverty, drugs, and war, economists say that the solution to our problems lies in the hands of those that we have most neglected: women. They may make up 70% of the world's poorest, but they are more than 50% of the world's brightest. Join us in exploring the powerful essence of female divinity in Hindu culture and philosophy and celebrating those who manifest their inner strength daily.
Kalalayam, meaning Temple of Art in Tamil, is a Los Angeles based not for profit organization that focuses on outreach and awareness of the Indian classical arts through performance. It was founded in 2014 by Tharini Shanmugarajah, Monisha Jayakumar and Anjana Pathmarajah, students of Kalyani Shanmugarajah (Kalakshetra) who is currently director of the esteemed Kalapeetham Foundation in Los Angeles.
Kalalayam hopes to create a community that fosters the belief that art is not competitive, superficial or just belonging to the physical world. Kalalayam holds the belief that art is spiritual and has the ability to transform humanity.
