Description

RELIGIOUS TEXTS OR SCRIPTURES PLAY AN EXTREMELY IMPORTANT ROLE IN EVERY RELIGION. THEY ARE THE STOREHOUSE OF RELIGIOUS BELIEFS AND PRACTICES, AND CONSIDERED TO CONTAIN DIVINE COMMANDS WHICH ARE NOT TO BE DOUBTED OR QUESTIONED. THE WORDS OF SCRIPTURES HAVE A POWERFUL EFFECT ON HUMAN MIND AND IT IS THROUGH THE SCRIPTURES THAT CORE TEACHINGS OF A RELIGION, DIFFERENT ORIGINAL BELIEFS AND PRACTICES, NORMS AND CODE OF CONDUCT ARE PASSED ON FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION. IN THIS CHAPTER, THE PRIME FOCUS OF OUR DISCUSSION IS THE IMAGE OF WOMAN DEPICTED IN RELIGIOUS TEXTS OF THE PREDOMINANT RELIGIONS IN INDIA. THE STUDY WILL COVER SOME SALIENT FEATURES OF THE TEXTUAL REPRESENTATION OF WOMAN TO STIMULATE OUR THOUGHT REGARDING THE POSITION OF WOMAN IN DIFFERENT RELIGIONS. OUR DISCUSSION IS BASED ON THE PROMINENT TEXTS AND SCRIPTURES WHICH ARE CONSIDERED TO BE THE SOURCE ON WHICH THE BELIEF AND PRACTICES OF THE RESPECTIVE RELIGIONS ARE DETERMINED. SCRIPTURES OF SOME RELIGIONS, E.G., ISLAM, CHRISTIANITY AND SIKHISM, ARE LIMITED TO ONE OR A FEW TEXTS, WHEREAS SOME OTHERS, E.G., HINDUISM, BUDDHISM AND JAINISM, INCLUDE DIVERSE TEXTS OF MANY PERIODSshow more
