Hare Krishna...i have a doubt...
Scriptures tell us what is the nature of women and of men. And it is distinctly said, women are emotional and less intelligent in practical matters, whereas men are not soft hearted but very practical and intelligent.
And this difference is said to keep social life harmonius. I wonder how can there be affection and harmony, when a woman has more emotional needs which can't be understood by a "logical minded man".
Even among devotee grihastas, how can there be peace and love when suppose man being more practical, focuses on following all rules 'strictly' in Spirituality, whereas a woman is more emotional and handles things more lovingly....
But, anyone can see clearly, that today best relationships are those where every member is both emotional+ practical. Both men and women are capable of understanding emotions and thus being caring and understanding more.
When decisions are made in practical matters, there are high chances of women being satisfied with the mutual agreemement as such women can think and realise the significance of making some decision.
On other hand, if the same is done in a family where the extremities of nature and duties are followed, a emotional woman may find it hard to cope up with the decisions male members make in family, as they are not allowed or trained to think in logical way(which comes from education and exposure to world that teaches such skills and "makes women intelligent"
In non-devotee people too, best maintained relations are those, where both male and female are capable of understanding each other, as both can think wisely and both can be understanding. There are few chances of crashes that way too, from my family i have nice examples😊
Then, How can I understand and believe in the extreme point of view Scriptures and guru tell....?
Please forgive me for the long question...Thank you for reading it😊🙏
