Gender Equality

In Hindu economics, women were not only treated equal to men, but often elevated to a higher level. Several references from Atharvaveda (Brahmcharya Sukta) not only refer to the importance of education of women, but also acknowledge their central role in economics and prosperity of a family.

Girls should train themselves to become complete scholars and youthful through Brahmacharya and then enter married life.

Atharvaveda 11.5.18

Oh woman! You know everything. Please provide us strength of prosperity and wealth

Atharvaveda 7.47.2

KAILASASM embraces the philosophy of empowerment of women. His Divine Holiness has worked tirelessly for gender equality not only in the economic society, but also in the spiritual and religious realm. Women will be allowed to be priests in temples, and be able to take sanyaas (or monkhood). These are core and ancient practices of Hinduism as prescribed by Parmashiva in the Agamas. 

As we mentioned before His Divine Holiness follows the practice of conferring the yagnopavita to women also, as per the original Veda-Agamas.
