Bhagwad Gita and Women

Query: Which Shloka of the Bhagwad Gita discusess on women?

Vijay Kumar:
Bhagvad Gita is a very deep document. It mainly deals with the status of a human being primarily in its pure state i.e. Atman the soul within. As every soul does not have gender properties ... in Bhagvad Gita whatever has been taught and referred to applies to both the sexes.

In Hinduism, there is a very interesting Paradox which happened during the time of Mira Bai (meera bai), the famous devotee of God Krishna. During the times of Mira Bai ladies were not permitted to enter the precincts of the temples ... Nor they were permitted to read Vedas and other sacred scriptures. It was normally presumed that ladies were meant for household work alone.

Once Mira 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 Mira Bai. He also stated that only men were permitted to worship in the temple.

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


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

Bhagvad Gita gives exactly the same respect and value to women as men.
