Happy Women’s day to all women of this world. My best regards to you! 🙏🙏🙏
Ancient Hindu Scriptures expound a reverence for the feminine. The 10th Chapter of Rigveda, known as Devi Sukta [ Hymn on Goddess] says:
I am the Queen, the gatherer-up of treasures, most thoughtful, first of those who merit worship.
Thus, gods have established me in many places with many homes to enter and abide in.
Through me alone all eat the food that feeds them, -each man who sees, breathes, hears the word outspoken.
They know it not, yet I reside in the essence of the Universe. Hear, one and all, the truth as I declare it.
I, verily, myself announce and utter the word that gods and men alike shall welcome.
I make the man I love exceeding mighty, make him nourished, a sage, and one who knows Brahman.
I bend the bow for Rudra [ Shiva], that his arrow may strike, and slay the hater of devotion.
I rouse and order battle for the people, I created Earth and Heaven and reside as their Inner Controller.
On the world’s summit I bring for the sky the Father: my home is in the waters, in the Ocean as Mother.
Thence I pervade all existing creatures, as their Inner Supreme Self, and manifest them with my Body.
I created all worlds at my will, without any higher Being, and permeate and dwell within them.
The eternal and Infinite Consciousness is I; it is my greatness dwelling in everything.
——- Devi Sukta: Rig Veda: 10.125.3 – 10.125.8.
