The typical image of woman projected by media today is that of someone either timid, or inept in exhibiting boldness, or merely an object for sensual gratification. The media includes not only means of mass communications but also the major religious cults. And not to be surprised, denigration of woman led to denigration of world. A society that does not give due respect to woman is bound to be inflicted with untimely deaths, fear and injustice. This is the the loud pronouncement of Vedas summarized by Manu (3.56): “The society that respects women is a heaven. And where women are denigrated, even the noble actions go waste.”

India became a slave nation ruled even by slaves because we ignored this most important social message of Vedas. And world is an extremely dangerous and volatile place to live today, despite all so-called advancements,  because woman – the true foundation of valor – are not having the same status that they rightly deserve. If we consider woman as objects of lust, and glamorize skin-showers, law of karma will ensure that our skin is peeled off every moment through harsh realities of life. That is exactly what has happened and is happening today. But if we respect motherly woman to be hallmark of valor and all goodness that we possess, our world would be a paradise.

Contrary to the stupid notions prevailing, as per Vedas, a powerful prosperous society demands woman to be full of valor because that is her natural trait. Her valor is not brutal but that inspired by emotional and spiritual intelligence.

Let us review a few mantras from Vedas on woman:

Atharvaveda 14.1.47: O woman, you are the foundation of society. We promise to provide you a solid foundation to nurture and exhibit your capabilities. Stand up on this foundation and learn the lessons of firmness and patience. You also, thus, become firm foundation for the society like a solid rock. May you live a long life so that our brilliance can enlighten us for long!

Yajurveda 5.10: O woman, you are a lioness. Destroy the enemies of ignorance, immaturity, negativity and savagery for welfare of all. O woman, you are a lioness. Destroy the enemies of ignorance, immaturity, negativity and savagery for purity of all. O woman, you are a lioness. Destroy the enemies of ignorance, immaturity, negativity and savagery for happiness of all.

Yajurveda 5.12: O woman, you are a lioness. We resolve to do everything for your respect and glory. O woman, you are a lioness that leads to birth of great legends in society. We resolve to do everything for your respect and glory. O woman, you are a lioness that nurtures intelligence and bravery in society. We resolve to do everything for your respect and glory. O woman, you are a lioness who provides bliss and prosperity to society. We resolve to do everything for your respect and glory. We appoint you for welfare of all living beings.

Yajurveda 10.26: O woman, you are source of happiness. You are source of firmness and stability. You are source of valor. Stay glorious in our society.

Yajurveda 13.16: O woman, you are firm and possess tremendous will-power. You support us all. The Supreme Lord has filled you with virtues of valor and knowledge. May even the entire army of enemies that comes like sea be unable to harm you. Even the vultures may not be able to harm you. May you strengthen the world. (In other words, the rest of the society should vow to protect the woman so that she can support us all. It is this message that led to brave legends preferring to die rather than compromise dignity of women.)

Yajurevda 13.18: O woman, you have tremendous potentials. You are as stable as this earth. You are the mother for entire world. You support the world and society. Protect the world from deviating to wrong paths, stabilize the world and ensure that there is never any violence.

(Thus the mantra states that all women, regardless of her age, should be respected as we respect our mother. Such a respect for women will ensure that our society is worth living for humans. When women is respected in this manner, her valor and patience bring stability, peace and prosperity in society.

On contrary, when women are denigrated as glamorous tools, we face the same miseries in society that happen among savages. So stop idolizing models and actresses and start respecting Rani Jhansis and Ahilya Bais.

Yajurveda 13.26: O woman, you do not deserve to be defeated by challenges and obstacles. On contrary, you possess the power to defeat the stiffest challenge. Defeat the enemies and their armies. You have valor of thousands of men. Realize your true potential and demonstrate your valor. Please us all through your courage. The world demands that from you!

Yajurveda 21.5: O woman, you possess tremendous power. You are the mother of noble people. You are the wife of truth-seeker. You are full of valor. You cannot be weakened by attack of enemies. You are full of dynamism. You bring happiness to all. You follow the path of nobility. Protect the society by realizing your true potential.

(The mantra clearly states that if the husband is not on right path, a woman should not follow him. She is source of all power, so she should lead and not be led in matters of truth and justice.)

Rigveda 8.67.10: O woman, you are unbreakable. You are never impoverished. We urge you to spread happiness and prosperity in the world. We urge you to realize your potential so that we are able to fulfill our goals.

Rigveda 8.18.5: O woman, you are unbreakable, brave and impoverished. Hence your children are also brave and eager to take greatest challenges for noble goals. They dare to fight the toughest enemies. They never even dream of sins. How can they indulge in any sinful act! All this is because you are the mother!

Yajurveda 14.13: O woman, you are the queen! You are brilliant like the east from where sun rises! You are possessor of tremendous potentials like the south. You are the empress like the glorious west. You enlighten us all like the north. You deserve vast respect like the sky.

Rigveda 10.86.10: A woman never hesitates to make greatest of sacrifices in time of need. The woman who symbolizes truth, has brave sons and has a brave husband brings prosperity and glory for herself and society.

Yajurveda 17.44: O brave woman, defeat the vast armies of enemy. March towards the enemies and destroy them. Stay away from sinful acts. Ensure that enemies of society are completely disheartened to never dare to promote vices.

Yajurveda 17.45: O brave woman, obtain training in martial arts and warfare. Unleash your potential and destroy the enemies. Capture them and do not have mercy on those who spread hatred and vices in society. Imprison them.

Rigveda 6.75.15: O brave woman, for the criminals, you are an arrow full of poison. For defense of the society, you have donned an armor. You have tremendous valor. We humbly bow to your selfless glory!

Rigveda 10.86.9: This criminal is assuming me to be a coward. But I am brave. My husband is also brave. I am in company of brave people.

Rigveda 10.159.2: I am the flag of the nation. I am the head of the society. I am brilliant. My voice has impact. I am loved by my husband but in battle-field I demonstrate exemplary bravery that destroys the enemies.

Rigveda 10.159.3: My son has destroyed all enemies. My daughter is full of brilliance. My husband is famed. And I am a winner.

Rigveda 10.159.4: My husband has performed exemplary acts of selflessness. I have also conducted similar selfless acts of bravery. Since I am completely selfless and powerful, I have no enemies.

Rigveda 10.159.5: I have no enemies. I have destroyed all enemies. I am a winner over all enemy mindsets and tendencies.

O Ishwar! Provide a direction to our society that we respect the woman as mother! Provide inspiration to women so that they realize their true potential. This is the only way for a peaceful, prosperous, powerful society, nation and world! May we achieve that very soon!

People think that women are not respected in the Sanatana Dharma faith. Especially in the West. This terrible Delhi rape convinces them that it is our religious culture that permits rape, as well as female infanticide, and honor killings. None of them are supported by the Vedas but no one… Read more »
I request Agniveer to send the article to Mohajji bhagavat for his reading. What he said today as appearing in News paper is obnoxious and borders on Talibanism. Further, the marriage in Vedas is not social contract. It is beyond this. It is unfortunate that RSS has a horrible puranic… Read more »

You may send the article. But when we viewed a longer footage, we did not find anything objectionable. It seems he was actually criticizing this contract theory rather than endorsing it. Newspapers seem to be highlighting only a part of his speech.


Agniveer can you give us link of mohan bhagwat speech so that we may know that he was denying contract theory?

Arya Vinay

Open television and you will see it.


Vinu i have downloaded from YouTube but it is ibn news and showing only one line of bhagwat speech . from that clip i can’t conclude whether he was supporting or denying contract. but agniveer said that i have seen and media is misleading so i want link.

Thank you. I heard his speech in video and he has not stated what the news papers said. It is a deliberate distortion done by media to defame RSS . Agreed. Even then, I feel Sri Mohanji Bhagavat is not fully aware of the lofty position accorded to women in… Read more »

@Anti-Agni Agniveer is against those people who has the mentality that “Saddam Hussein, Idi Amin, Ben Laden, Khalkhali and Khomeini will be forgiven, despite their crimes, because they were Muslims and did not set partners to Allah, but Gandhi who was a Hindu and as Muslims claim believed in a… Read more »

Because no one is surprised when Muslims mass murder infidels or rival Muslim sects. It is not news. It is the only religion people have to be constantly reminded that it is a religion of peace though the never ending rivers of blood say otherwise.

Why differentiate as we and you. Everyone is victim of those forces whose only goal is commercial benefits. At least Agniveer never blames on basis of Hindu or Muslim. Yes we condemn Zakir and Owaisi but we also admire Ashfaq and Hamid as our top role models. Today, the largest… Read more »

Another illustration of respect to women in ancient vedic times can be seen in the “names” of children. If it was boy then he was referred to by his mother’s name. For example– Kunti-putra or Ganga-putra. If it was a girl, she was named after her father or the kingdom.… Read more »

Watching pornography is an insult to all women, that includes your mother too

A wrong is a wrong. And watching pornography represents highest level of mental sickness regardless of whosoever does it. The moment we justify enjoying anything or any person with lust for purely physical reasons, then we have no reason to have different standards for our own mother. That is why… Read more »

Lot of today’s young generation consider watching pornography as normal.
Watching pornography is equivalent of exploiting women, for our own physical pleasure.
If someone doesnt watch pornography, then he is considered abnormal and is mocked upon.
