  1. thanks for all of your helpful information! =) This forum rox.
  2. i am a female btw. I'm doing this for a school project...just would like to know wht their roles are in Hinduism.
  3. They say that in ancient India, women occupied a very important position, in fact a superior position to, men. It is a culture whose only words for strength and power are feminine -"Shakti'' means "power'' and "strength.'' However, it is also said that women have been discriminated within the Hindu tradition. Men is more superior and women is supposed to serve men. Lower-caste women had greater freedom in many areas but were discriminated against by the higher-caste men and women. I am confused, so are Hindu women being discriminated, or being respected in Hinduism?
  4. HELP! I'm doing a project on Hinduism, and I'd like to know what days of the week are most religious for Hindus? Do they have a special day of the week to visit the temple or pray? One book said there is no specific day since all days are special in their own ways, while some sources states that tuesdays and thursdays are the religious days of the week? Which one is true and why? I'd gladly appreciate all your help! thanks!
