what is the adarsh vidhva?

is there any perfect definition of it?

are there any rule for widow in hinduism?


It was a part of hindu vedic dharma. But due to effect of kaliyuga , Now no one follows it .


Adarsha widow is the one who follows the rules prescribed for widows. There are many rules for widows . Some are , not to talk with males , limitations to go outside of home , taking simple meal , shaving of Head etc .


Shaving of head was done only to maintain social purity . The reason is that no any man should attract towars of her . She should maintain topmost purity in her life .
