Why the presence of woman is considered dangerous to devotion?
Why we use `he` instead of `she` for God and why she (God) is worshiped more as a `father ` figure than a `mother` figure ?
Human mind is not stable.
Even Viswamitra Maharishi fallen from divinity.
God's rule is to attract opposite poles.
To come out from that and concentrate only on divine power is a greatest challenge.
It is our belief that Mahasakthi created Brahma,Vishnu and Siva with different powers to maintain the Universe..
We can use both He and She....All goes to Maha Shakthi or Paramathma.
God is God only....Need not seek gender .
Let me tell you, your question itself is absolutely presumptuous in the Indian context, because, God has NO GENDER in Indian philosophy. God is a Nasthik, whereas, Rama Krishna and Devi Parvati and Mata etc are just theoretical manifestations. So the question itself is a Dud.
Presence of a Man is far more dangerous to a woman who wants to lead the path of devotion because of the restrictions imposed upon her by a society dominated by men.
A woman is dangerous only to an unstable mind, which should in the first place not seek to achieve anything that distracts him before he embarks on the quest. Otherwise, he was fooling himself in the first place.
Which woman has broken your divine devotion? Or you have become an endangered species in presence of a woman? A very very primitive statement indeed to begin with. Those who were weak in the knees, it were the ploy to hide own failures. Here too, the men folk took help of women to hide their own failures in devotion. Tch! Tchh!! A real shame for men.
Thanks for acknowledging the womanpower and seeing into mother figure of a God. Still it is demeaning statement, which hides the magnamity of women folk. Him or Her power is creation of weak minds, donot they know that any supreme power Him or Her is as gracious? The wisdom, The strength and The prosperity are feminine powers to begin with.
No wonder, women power is under played and under viewed. Do you still need to ask, **Why we use `he` instead of `she` for God and why she (God) is worshiped more as a `father ` figure than a `mother` figure ?**

First thing never go to east Indian states with this on your lips,trust me,its not going to be funny at all.The die hard believers of Ma Durga and Ma Kali,may not find that very amusing.
I have never heard something as sexist as the opening sentence of yours.
When each prayer and its recital begins with a Ma Saraswati's Vandana,this sentence saddens me a great deal.
In a male dominated society,ever since time immemorial,roles were assigned by men...hence the texts promoted men as Gods in many religions.
But one just cant say so for hinduism. Cause it is one religion,which has placed a woma before the male,always.
Be it Radha Krishna,Gauri Shankar,Lakshmi Ganesha,Sita Ram and so many more. question of 'she' 'he' doesnt arise at all.
As far as I know,I have heard such expression too often............mata rani sab theek kareingi....Ma Durga sab sambhal lengi....jai kali calcutte waali,tera vachan na j ...more
