  • All are born equal!

    Bhagvad Gita is a very deep document. It mainly deals with status
    of human beings primarily in its prime pure state i.e. atman soul,
    the spirit within. As soul atman does not have gender properties...
    in Bhagavad Gita whatever has been taught and referred... equally
    applies to both the sexes.

    In Hinduism, there is a very interesting paradox that happened
    during the times of Meera Bai, the famous devotee of Lord Krishna.
    During the times of Meera Bai ladies were not permitted to enter
    the precincts of temples. Nor were they permitted to read Vedas
    and other scriptural texts. It was normally presumed that ladies
    were meant for household work alone.

    Once Meera Bai sent a slip to the Pujari (priest) of the temple
    that she wanted to come to the temple and pray to lord Krishna. The
    priest got infuriated and rejected the demand of Meera Bai. He also
    stated that only men were permitted to worship in the temple.

    After knowing the views of the priest, Meera Bai sent a return slip
    to the priest. Sooner the priest got the slip... he ran towards
    the abode of Meera Bai and fell upon her feet. He prayed for
    forgiveness for act committed unknowingly and out of ignorance.

    What was written in the slip that totally changed the thinking of
    the priest! Meera Bai had just written that there is only one Karta
    (doer) in this world... God, the Almighty... rest all are ladies!

    Bhagavad Gita gives exactly the same respect and value to women as
    men. Glory be to god almighty... all are born equal!
