The Feminine Principle is spoken of as the illusion imposed upon Himself by the Lord, as the energy with which He equipped Himself out of His own will. This is the maya, the feminine form. This is why woman is considered as the embodiment of the highest energy (Parasakthi Swarupa).
Sathya Sai Baba
   
It is obvious that feminine birth is estimable, adorable and sublime.
