I 4. How do Vedas glorify women?

Vedas Glorify Women: Gaayathri, which enshrines the essence of the Vedhas, is a goddess, venerated as Vedha Maatha (the mother of the Vedhas). The Vedha also adores the feminine principle in various ways. Vedhik rituals and practices accord a high place to women.
Sathya Sai Baba, 19 Nov 1995
   
The Puranas and Sastras are waxing eloquence on the woman as the embodiment of motherhood. The Vedas have described women like Gargi and Maithreyi as spiritual heroines and scholarly gems.
Sathya Sai Baba, 7 Nov 1969
