A feminine spiritual odyssey

Many Sanskrit texts have been misinterpreted due to a lack of knowledge or with the intent to malign and exploit women. If one doesn’t know the hermeneutics of Indian scriptures one will misinterpret what they are actually saying. Because of this misunderstanding women are often being labeled as maya based upon the physical body and not by their internal disposition.

From Taj to Vraj explains some of the ambiguous verses and highlights the deep psychological insight into humanity that is embodied in the Indian scriptures. It discusses the conflict between sexuality and asceticism, misconceptions about the Kama-sutra and the practice of Sati, as well as the Power of the Divine Feminine. In conclusion, From Taj to Vraj reveals the confidential meaning of ‘woman’ in shastra.

    Most of the time what people call love is just attachment, because they are doing it for their own pleasure. You can only see this when you become free from attachment. When there is attachment, our perception becomes disturbed and we don’t see things clearly. That is why they say love is blind – you can’t see because of your attachment.
