#ReadyToWait: A campaign to reclaim Hindu temples and traditions

A group of women devotees from Kerala have started a new campaign #ReadyToWait, asserting how devotees of the Sabarimala temple understand and respect the temple traditions regarding women’s entry .

The issue of restrictions on the entry of women into some places of worship has been a matter of debate for the few years. Since, last year, Sabarimala Ayyappa Swami Temple in Kerala, which prohibits entry of women during their reproductive age has been the main focus of such debates.

In the aftermath of the Bombay High Court’s verdict allowing women to enter the sanctum sanctorum of Haji Ali dargah in Mumbai, similar demands were again raised regarding the Sabarimala temple.

In response to these demands by certain feminists and women’s rights activists, a group of women devotees from Kerala have started a new campaign #ReadyToWait, asserting how devotees of the Sabarimala temple understand and respect the temple traditions regarding women’s entry and how they do not want those traditions to be discarded. They are asserting that women devotees of Kerala are ready to wait till they are 50 to enter the Sabarimala temple and the demands by non-devotees to discard the tradition in the name of gender equality amounts to infringement on religious freedom.

IndiaFacts spoke to Anjali George, who is an Independent Researcher from Kerala, currently residing in Germany, and who, along with her group of women devotees are spearheading this campaign on Social Media.

IndiaFacts: The Sabarimala entry issue is quite old and is making headlines, since last year. What made you start this #ReadyToWait campaign now? What is the central message of the campaign? Who are all involved in this campaign?

Anjali George: What you said is right. It’s not long since the Sabarimala issue has been making headlines. Things were cool there till a section of politically minded feminists, who have nothing to do with faith decided that something was wrong. They have absolutely no clue of the scientific and philosophical basis of a temple and falsely and foolishly equate the practices of Santana Dharma with the inborn discrimination in Semitic religions. The faithful mostly tend to ignore them and look after their own business. But, this emboldened these activists into believing that they represent women; that ONLY THEY represent women.

These were some random thoughts, which many of us had when we saw these high-decibel feminists shouting in TV studios as if they represented the entire community of women. They undoubtedly are organized and enjoy political patronage. This helps them get more air time on TV and space in print. But, we had to tell these misguided souls that we know to take care of our business and didn’t need their ‘helping’ hand. The media or authorities never cared for our views. But, we were determined to make ourselves heard. That’s how we decided to take to social media with a hashtag. #ReadyToWait is to tell the so called activists that they are wrong on Sabarimala; to tell all the decision makers that we devotees are the more important stakeholders in the debate over faith and not the atheist feminists. A handful of activists, who do not have the temerity or the maturity to understand the underpinnings and beauty of Indian spirituality are not the ones who should decide about how half a billion women in India should follow their faith. Why should those who have only contempt for our beliefs tell us how we should conduct ourselves in matters of faith?

This campaign is a team effort, but people like Padma Pillai, Suja Pavithran, Radhika Menon, Shilpa Nair, Krishnapriya, Manju Panicker, etc. were among the first who declared that we are ready to wait for our turn to have darshan of Ayyappa Swami in Sabarimala. I’m glad that I could also be a part of this noble initiative.

IndiaFacts: Can you shed some light on why the temple tradition at Sabarimala prohibits entry of women between ages 10 and 50, while no such prohibition exist in many other temples dedicated to Lord Ayyappan?

Anjali George: Deities in most temples are represented using complex, cryptic epithets (paroksha priyaahi iva devah). The tradition in Sabarimala is based purely on the concept (Devata-Sankalpa) that Shasta (Lord Ayyappa) of Sabarimala is in the form of a `Kumara’ (teenager) observing Brahmacharya (Celibacy, Detachment and Dispassion). The point to be noted here is that Sabarimala Ayyappa is different from other Ayyappa temples. To understand this better, we need to look at some of the other associated Shasta temples in the region. Sabarimala is the most prominent of these and Ayyappa is worshipped there as Dharma Shasta (teacher of Dharma). But what is interesting is that the deity is the same in three other temples as well – in Kulathupuzha, Aryankavu, and Achankovil. However, in these three temples, Dharma Shasta is in three different forms namely Bala (child) in Kulathupuzha, Bharyasametha (with wife) in Achankovil and Tapasa (ascetic) in Aryankavu. The four shrines are related to each other, but in only one of them is Ayyappa a Naishtika Brahmachari (one who strictly and always practices complete dispassion). These four `pratishtas’ (installations) denote the four stages of human life – `Balaka’ (childhood), `Kumara’ (youthful years when one is expected to practice brahmacharya), `Bharyasametha’ (here, the Lord sits with wives and enjoys worldly life) and Tapasa (old age – where a man leaves for vanaprastha). These four shrines have to be observed collectively to get the complete picture on Ayyappa. What many overlook is that, except in Sabarimala, where Ayyappa is in his `Brahmachari’ phase, there is no restriction on entry of women in the other three temples or in any other Ayyappa temple around the globe.

The reason behind the restriction on the entry of women of a particular age group into the Sabarimala temple is simple. Pilgrims to Sabarimala are expected to observe strict `Vrata’ (penance) of 41 days. It is called ‘Mandala Vrata’. For a woman, this may not be possible as her menstrual cycle, which is often a tiresome and painful experience repeats every month  and interferes with Vrata. Since, Ayyappa at Sabarimala is a Naishtika Brahmachari, the energy in the temple may create an imbalance in the natural creative energy present in women of reproductive age, if they are repeatedly exposed to those energies over long period. This may in turn prevent Grihasta women from effectively doing their Swadharma. Hence, only those who are yet to attain puberty or those who have already reached menopause undertake the pilgrimage.

IndiaFacts: Feminists have often pointed out how prohibiting the entry of women of menstruating age into Sabarimala amounts to misogyny and discrimination against women and hence infringes on the women’s right to pray. What is your take on this?

Anjali George: It is ignorance, which makes them see the practice in Sabarimala as discriminatory. Practicing Hindu women generally keep away from the places of worship, whether at home or outside, when they are having their monthly periods. There are many reasons attributed to this. From what I understand, menstruation is not an impure act as such, but the aftermath of a powerful process, wherein a woman readies herself to procreate, to give life to a child. The energy associated with this act is believed to be so huge that it can interfere with and even eclipse the energy present in a temple. It also brings about severe physiological and emotional changes in a woman necessitating care for the days it lasts. Such is the beauty of Sanatana Dharma that some temples even celebrate the menstrual phase of women. For example, in the famed Kamakhya temple in Assam and the Devi temple in Kerala’s Chenganoor, it is the Devi’s `yoni’ (Vagina) and menstruation, respectively that are celebrated. If the beliefs of Hindus were as brittle as some ‘ignoramus’ are trying to portray, thousands of devotees would not have been eager to receive the Goddess’ menses blood as Prasad in these temples. This alone is enough to expose the hollowness of the claim that Sanatana Dharma discriminates menstruating women, while the truth is that it worships them during the biological phase.

The problem is we never made any attempt to study all this wisdom, which our forefathers left behind for us. Instead, we allowed ourselves to be hijacked by man-made faiths, which basically saw humans as products of sin. Our education system is basically fashioned on a Western model and those who pass through it unconsciously tend to compare indigenous Dharmic traditions with Abrahamic organized religions. They don’t realize that it is suicidal and illogical to apply the Semitic scale that reduces God to a mere human figure to pagan traditions that worship nature and its forces as manifestations of divinity. These activists are denying humanity the fruits of a way of life, which offers room for spiritual inquiry and instead are `forcing’ practitioners of Dharmic traditions to embrace short-sighted traditions that have sought to spread their faith by the power of swords and guns.

Each temple has a unique custom and practices rooted in Tantra Shastras and tailor-made for the kind of deity invoked in those temples. These temple traditions cannot be standardized just because the so called liberals, who ridicule faith cannot understand their context and meaning. It will do well for all, if these activist sisters take some time off to study the scientific foundations of Sanatana Dharma before jumping to half-baked conclusions. But, of course, trying out Google would not be enough and they might have to undertake a serious spiritual quest to arrive at the right answers.

IndiaFacts: In one of your tweets, you take serious exception to feminists and activists fighting for #RightToPray and state that devotees don’t need atheist spokespersons to empower them. Can you elaborate on this?

Anjali George: During the British rule, when Temple entry agitation had started in Kerala, many non-Hindus, Christian missionaries and atheists had approached Mahatma Gandhi offering their support for the struggle. But, he rightly rejected their offer. According to him, the sanctity of the temple and the deity were important for only those who believed in the Hindu temple tradition. Gandhi ji’s action prompts me to ask these feminists, who are they to speak for the devotees on a subject they abhor?

By appointing themselves as the champions of the rights of women devotees, what the feminists actually imply is that these devotees are incapable of fighting for themselves. That’s one kind of classism too. It is a modern version of the ‘White Man’s Burden’ to civilize unwashed pagans. Hindu civilization always had valued the opinion of women and we had women warriors fighting shoulder to shoulder with men in history. So, if practicing Hindu women need to fight for any ‘rights’, we can fight on our own.

IndiaFacts: Some equate the restriction on the entry of women in Sabarimala to social evils like sati, child marriage, etc. What is your take?

Anjali George: That is a false equation. Sati, child marriage, prohibition on widow remarriage, etc., were social customs, which transformed into social evils in the course of time due to changed situations, wherein certain Shastric guidelines were no-longer applicable combined with distortion and misuse of such guidelines. Since, the social condition has changed even more today, there can be no equation of practices like Sati with temple traditions. Moreover, Sati etc. is completely unconnected with temple as they are not ritualistic practices affecting the temple deity and worship. The manner in which a deity is to be worshipped is something that is exclusively prescribed for each deity based on its Nama (name), Roopa (form), and Svaroopa (essence).

IndiaFacts: Some people have drawn a comparison between the prohibition on the entry of women in Mumbai’s Haji Ali and the prohibition in Sabarimala. What is your take on it? Is there any parallel between them?

Anjali George: That’s exactly the sinister plot – to paint Sanatana Dharma and Semitic religions with the same brush and confuse people into thinking what the heck, if I choose x or y, all are same.

To understand this debate, it is necessary to delve a little into the politics involved. It is difficult to uproot a living tree, but a dry one will fall by itself. Sanatana Dharma is a mighty tree whose roots run deep and under whose green canopy many civilizations have thrived. It is a way of life, which has crystallized over thousands of years through a system of checks and balances. Empathy to fellow creations is at the core of it. Anthropologists loosely refer to this lot as “pagans”. On the other hand, organized religions, rose basically as political movements and their founders went on to be hailed as Gods. We now hear people saying politics should not be mixed with religion, but the truth is the process had begun much earlier – when the very notion of organized religion was seeded. Expansionism was intrinsic to these religions, and they used all tools at their disposal, including politics, to further their agenda across the world.

India or Bharat has always been a sour grape for them, but they didn’t lose heart and kept improvising their methods to cut the mighty tree of Sanatana Dharma to size. When their swords and guns failed to yield results, they devised a more potent war of ideas. A key part of this was to make the natives feel ashamed of themselves, so that they would want to switch to (read convert to) something they need not be ashamed of. The subaltern is gradually fed with the idea that he/she is not civilized and that only the western ideas and ideals can rescue them. Language, gender, food, Gods – all become tools in this surrogate warfare.

People, who reduced God to just one mortal male human, who openly backs flogging and sexual slavery of women, who invented the chastity belt to keep her in tight leash, branded them witches and burnt them, began to sermon unsuspecting pagans, who saw Godliness in all beings, who celebrated both the masculine and the feminine in all its forms and who taught the world that there was a man in every woman and vice-versa (ardha-nareeswara). Any expansionist idea thrives on conflict and as such feminism became a convenient weapon in the hands of those who wanted to conquer the idea of India. Snake venom can both kill and save lives. Similarly, an idea too can be put to creative or destructive use. My objection is not with feminism per se, but the way it is practiced by some sections. A noble concept, which should have been a tool to empower women, has been cleverly fashioned into a weapon to convince them that they ought to be in a perpetual state of conflict with men. Such conflict is necessary to further political agendas. Half-truths and lies are paraded as ultimate truth, and this is exactly what is happening with regard to Sabarimala too.

Any blind man would know that comparing the Sabarimala practice to that of Haji Ali would be like comparing chalk and cheese. The Haji Ali controversy is a corollary to what critics say is the discrimination against women in general in Islam. But, there is NO BAN, I repeat, there is NO BAN on the entry of women into Sabarimala, as is being reported by some sections of the media. There is only a restriction on women of a particular age, and it has to do with its local customs, as I explained before. To understand it, one needs to have a deeper knowledge of the history and practices of Sanatana Dharma, which is easier said than done.

I am no expert on the subject, but will summarize what little I understand about the scientific nature of temples besides what I already mentioned in the answer to the second question. Temples, as envisaged by Sanatana Dharma, are not mere convention centers or spaces, where the deity entertains requests from followers. Sanatana Dharma is rooted in the concept that each individual has the potential to be God (Tattvamasi). What matters is Godliness and how best can we connect with it. Temples have the responsibility to facilitate the manifestation of various aspects of Brahman/God, along with the associated energy in such a manner that the devotees are able to interiorize the essence of those aspects of divinity by harnessing the respective energies. A thorough reading of the texts of Sanatana Dharma, will lead us to the conclusion that this Brahman is synonymous with Universal energy, which is invisible, all-pervading, and can neither be created, nor destroyed. The idol present at a temple is the abode of the manifestation of such a deity and its energy. Rituals of Sanatana Dharma like lighting the lamp at dawn and dusk, are with the objective of harnessing the energy of this divine manifestation. Sustaining and nurturing the positive aspects of this divine manifestation for the benefit of humanity is what goes on in a temple.

It is a different thing that we have long forgotten what our temples really stood for, thanks to semiticization of our culture and minds. #ReadyToWait is to reclaim what we lost, to reclaim our temples and traditions.

IndiaFacts: What is your view on the general, often untold, restriction on the entry of menstruating women in all the temples? What is the relationship between menstruation and entry into the temple?

Anjali George: As I explained above, temples are the storehouses of positive energy and not merely places to pray. One need not go to a temple to pray. One can pray from anywhere, even from the confines of one’s home. But, a visit to the temple is undertaken to have a Darshan of the deity, so that a share of deity’s positive energy stored in the temple is harnessed. The idols installed in the temples are mere stones, but what actually gives life to this stone, breathes energy into it are the rituals, which cause the actual manifestation of the divinity in those stone idols. Menstruation, as I understand and which I elucidated before, is the aftermath of a far more potent process of giving life. And a visit to a temple during menstruation may result in an imbalance in the energy of both the temple, as well as the menstruating women. Complex scientific principles are sometimes passed down as customs so that the common man too may benefit from it. But, in the course of time, there is the danger of the real meaning getting lost. I believe this is what happened in the case of Sabarimala too. The scientific meaning was lost, and the practice came to be tied up in assumed jargons over purity. Feminists make this an issue of discrimination with the malicious intent to spur an inferiority complex in women; to brainwash them to think that their faith treats them as lesser mortals. There is hardly any difference between those, who use such dirty tricks and those, who call pagans as devil worshippers.

IndiaFacts: How has been the response of people, especially women to your #ReadyToWait campaign? How do you plan to take this ahead?

Anjali George: #ReadyToWait was Karma calling and started as a trickle with some of us battling it out individually on the social media. But, the response to the hashtag has been overwhelming. Women of all hues have since pledged their support. I have no qualms saying that over the years, Indian women, who were once even learned in the Vedas and who led the society from the forefront have since retreated to their private spaces, thanks again to what I said earlier- the semiticization of our minds. This is a call for them to come out of the cocoons, which the society had created for them and make themselves count. It is in the space that they vacated, which the fake feminists have tried to encroach. There is an attempt to portray our movement as women against women. It is not. This is a movement against fake feminists, who are driven by partisan political agendas. Feminism has failed to live up to its name in places, where it was most necessary. This is to tell the world that we are feminists too- feminists, who are more interested in the welfare of women and humanity and not in playing politics. This should mark the beginning of a new renaissance in Indian society, not one dictated by the anti-pagan monotheistic agenda to foist Abrahamic puritanism on gullible people, but one which celebrates diversity and respects the greater truth that the human species is nothing, but a part of universal consciousness.

    If you believe in a God who was born as a result of the union of two male deities, a God who is a strict brahmachari then you should have no problems with following other dictums associated with the temple. The fact that you are challenging the rule means that you are not a believer. There is nothing wrong with not believing but this doesn’t give you the right to change or interfere with the traditions, the faithful devotees want to follow.

    I wish there be a Dharmic Union of BINS [Non-Muslim SAARC] countries, ASEAN countries,East Asian countries,certain Caribbean countries, certain African countries and certain Slavic countries. Together they should form a Voting Bloc against Western-Christian-Jihadi Islam interference in the rest of the world. But then these are issues not directly connected to the economy. So none of the above will be taken up by the Indian establishment.

  • IndiannotAmused

    Feminism of the West is reactionary Protestantism wrapped in Western Universalism. It needs to be EXPUNGED from Indian society and ALL OTHER Dharmic societies.

      Samething is true about “Secularism”. It was created to stop Christian Aggression in Europe. And India doesn’t have that context for usage of such word. It was Indira Gandhi who introduced the word “Secularism” in our constitution, by force, during Emergency.

    I don’t see anyone asking for Scientific Evidence of NICENE CREED & SHAHADA….Its Great that Hindu sisters are taking on the Abrahamics but time has come for Hindus to give it back to Chrislamic forces by organizing Counter Sacredness Programmes where we question their beliefs to see how scientific and pro feminine they are and if its proven otherwise then by LOGIC Physical force must be used on Musalamaans and Christians to stop those practices along with imposition of Social Engineering projects on them by especially targeting their Priest Class.

      Somebody,someday needs to take the fight to the other side.Issue is we will wait till there is enough economic heft.Which is another way of saying we will wait for a long time. I dislike the Han-Confucians for a variety of reasons but they are at least giving it back.

  • If I as a woman take oral contraceptive pills, thereby stopping menstruation and all the energy changing stuff that she goes on and on about-I should be able to enter Sabarimala temple , correct?
    The problem is that Ms Anjali is trying to provide a rational and scientific explanation for a practice that is not based in science.
    I wish she would be more honest and admit that women will not be allowed due to tradition and “impurity” during menses. That is the truth, as any Hindu woman has heard , since time immemorial.
    As a practicing Hindu woman, I beg you, Ms Anjali George- please UNDERSTAND , women SHOULD be allowed into any place of worship- irrescpective of age or menstrual status.

    • prashants5 .

      >> If I as a woman take oral contraceptive pills, thereby stopping menstruation and all the energy changing stuff that she goes on and on about-I should be able to enter Sabarimala temple , correct?

      Nonsense logic. We are talking about the Norm and not going through a specific procedure to prove otherwise. A tradition is usually followed based on “Norms” not exceptions or going through special procedures to defeat the “Norms”.

      >> The problem is that Ms Anjali is trying to provide a rational and scientific explanation for a practice that is not based in science.

      Evaluate it using your “Inner Science” ( called adhyatma vidya) and you would know the scientific explaination. There is no laboratory in the world, that can explain your “Inner Science”.

      First of all the westernized colonized moron Hindus, must come out of their Anglo-Saxon thoughts which they have been stuck since the British Invaded India. No two temples are same, no two deities are same even if the same deities are present in two different temples. There are lakhs of temples in India. Only 2-3 doesn’t allow women because of the form of deity is worshipped there. A temple is not mosque or church or a Prayer Hall.

      Hindu dhArmik Tradition is of vast diversity and de-centralized to large extent. It is not the centralized Abrahmic Religion where God is only present in same and one form everywhere and whoever don’t believe this, they must be converted.

      If you don’t like that, just build your own temple with whatever custom and rituals and whatever deities you like. dhArmik Tradition ( aka Hinduism ) has already given you that freedom. Why to disturb the commune’s tradition which they have been practicing since hundred of years? Why attack a specific temple in the name of entire Hinduism with your media morons?

    • Jana krish

      So, u stop something occurring normally by taking a contraceptive pill. Why?

    • Savarkar’s Disciple

      As a worshipper of Divine as Feminine I urge you to help us establish a Murti of the Divine Mata Allah in form of Varahi and Behen Paigambar Muhammad in every Masjid and help us make Jesus into a feminine deity of Gobar where we pour GAU MUTRA on her and deny the existence of Masculine God and Masculine last prophet/son but accept the concept of Divine Mothers divine Children.I hope a sister who goes by the reputable name Desi Daaru like you would help a MATA worshipper like me.



      • guest

        Great one!! I mean right up the alley for all those who fight for women’s causes!!

        • Savarkar’s Disciple

          They wont go there coz thats an alley where the FEMININE IS SACRED unlike the objectified or masculinized desacralized version which they propagate

          • guest

            So true, never thought of it that way….meaning they do not want the Feminine to be Sacred, but simply desacralise it?

          • Savarkar’s Disciple

            I dunno if that question mark in the end was a query or a mistake.Anyways I will try and explain if you look at Christianity or Judeo-Christian Western Culture you will notice that woman in general are not sacred and often looked down upon as inferior hence the Protestants dont revere mother mary while Catholics do but both worship the Masculine GOD Yahweh.If you study the Feminist movement which started mainly in the 1960s you will realise that the retaliation of woman in Europe was against the Biblica Masculine God’s patriarchal society hence not wearing inner garments,anger towards men who open doors for woman etc.There was also influence of Female deity worship but as usual the desacralization of human beings in general of the Abrahamic experience was very much present hence the woman who were already considered inferior to men had to be projected as equal to men thus gave rise to masculinization of the feminine rather than celebrating the Divine as feminine.So as many scholars including the interviewee in the article has mentioned about ignorant and colonised Hindus who superimpose that FEMINISM on Hindu experience which is completely different.The article rightly mentioned about Kamakhya temple in Assam and the Devi temple in Kerala’s Chenganoo, it is the Devi’s `yoni’ (Vagina) and menstruation, respectively that are celebrated.Now the temples are kept closed for few days because its believed that the Devi is menstruating you dont have anything like this amongst the Abrahamics because it is they who consider the body as Unholy and such a Celebration would be considered Blasphemous.

            As far as objectification of woman is concerned its already there in the Biblical text and even if we take Secular Open Market Capitalism we can see how it promotes a hedonistic consumerist attitude towards woman where their faces/bodies are used to promote a particular product/service.Now someone might say that its your Drishthi which has the problem but I would point out at the Marketing gimmicks where facial expressions/jestures and parts of bodies which were never meant for SEX are SEXUALISED to purposefully titillate so that the consumer buys that product/service even when there is no real requirement of that particular prod/serv.I would consider it as creating a Latent demand in the mind of the consumers by OBJECTIFYING the feminine.

            Now Islam I dont think I even need to explain you can see it when a Musalmaan woman wears black coloured Burqa in the hot Indian Summer and can be treated like an object by all the men we all can see who is the Misogynst Male Chauvinist Pig here… hehe;)

            But in anycase if your doing some kind of a Purva Paksha then read about Talaq,Halala,Mutah and Iddat




            There could be scientific explainations but if Bhakti towards divine mother makes us respect woman then I choose to be a Bhakt of Maa rather than some Mleccha worldview which promotes Perverted Feminism

          • guest

            Thanks so much for this. Yes, it was a question. I know some but am still learning. The videos were amazing. Me too, I prefer to bow to Durga, Saraswati and Laxmi, than be feminism supporter!!

          • prashants5 .

            In our dhArmik Tradition and Philosophy, The ultimate truth is “Brahman”. Who is the cosmos living within every living entity in the form of unrealized atman, hence making each of us “Brahman”.

            Brahman can be swarupa ( including thousands of nAma Rupa ), Arupa ( Form less), can be Male, Female, Transgender or Genderless.

          • Savarkar’s Disciple

            I think guest here is referring to usage of divine femininity as a poison pill to Western Universalism/Abrahamism.

          • prashants5 .

            Forget about Sacred Feminism. There is another Fact. As per the old Christian belief, until 1940-50s it was believed Soul is only present in Males. The females were so much objectified that, they were treated as “Living Objects” without Soul.

          • Savarkar’s Disciple

            You forgot to mention the part about the RACE as in White European Man has a soul but others don’t.

    • Saffronwarrior

      Bullshit take your pisstian suckular Logic back to your FCRA funded ngo & shove it your lardass. If you can’t respect the God almighty then why visit him cunt go to yer basturd boy jebuz & rot.

    • kushyluv

      The problem is that if YOU don’t believe in the positive energy of a temple then why are you even visiting it? The concept of darshan is considered a tangible thing. There is no requirement that you have to visit a temple-its not essential to your education/career.health or anything else. And a temple is not a public place like a bus stop that must provide equal access to all. Its a place for those who believe in it-no matter how arbitary those rules sound to you.
      The comparision with Haji Ali also does not fly since Islam and Chritianity are based ona single simple rules for ALL those who profess to be beilevers–diametrically opposite from Hinduism which includes a vast array of beliefs. The diversity of Hinduism is what make NOT any other religion, so the courts and activists are wrong to impose one set of beliefs and practices on all Hindu temples. That is forcing Hinduism to become far more a semitic relgiion that a dharmic one

  • suru

    Very correctly spoken by Anjali.and Kudos to her.

    Many argue that temples are a public place and why not women are allowed. As Anjali explained women are allowed in all the temples but with some rules and regulation which are to be followed.

    Why can’t ANY ONE enter operation theatre of a hospital? why can’t the doctor perform the operation with his NORMAL suite and a tie? This is because there are certain reasons and so hospital has some rules and restrictions of its own.
    When one has so many restrictions for a hospital building or similar public places, why can’t temples have their own rules and regulations?
