“The womb is where another human being, through her compassion and knowingness and her own devotion to living an awakened life, can facilitate or uplift the destiny of the soul inside of her. This is our gift on the planet as women. This is the way we can change the world and bring peace to the planet.” – Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa
