Indian Approach to Women's Empowerment

By Bharat Jhunjhunwala, Madhu Jhunjhunwala

Men and women find happiness in different ways. This is partly due to social conditioning and partly due to their different genetic and psychological inheritance. Thus, their path to happiness will also be different. This book explores the difficult theme of women's psychic empowerment by building on the Indian understanding of gender differences. The human psyche is located in six chakras in the spinal column. Each charka is the centre of certain abilities. Certain chakras are stronger in women while others are stronger in men. Thus, the capacities of men and women are inherently different. Their empowerment should be built upon their respective strengths. The authors hold that women's intuitive powers are more developed. They can influence others by use of this psychic power. These powers are compatible with their role as homemakers. They may accept the leadership of man in external matters but lead him psychically. This book is an essential reading for those who want to understand Indian psychology and its relationship with gender.
