Menstruation for women.
« on: October 24, 2008, 03:08:01 PM »
Once people were arranging elaborately to celebrate Bhagavan
Ramana's Jayanti.  Even a few days before that event, devotees
were busy composing poems on Bhagavan and others were making
arrangements for the feast.  Once for a Jayanti, Gurram Venkata
Subbraramiah, Krishna Bhikshu and other great devotees arrived
even three or four days before the Jayanti.  Everyone was happy
awaiting the joyous occasion.

It so happened that commecing a day before, Suri Nagamma had to undergo the monthly menstruation, during that period.  She felt
extremely sad and was cursing her fate in the house.  Subbaramaiah
went to her house to find out the position.  On knowing the facts,
he also felt bad and after speaking a few good words to her, left
for the Asram.  Bhagavan Ramana asked Subbaramiah for the reason.
When it was explained to Him, He said: "Why should she feel remorse
for such a natural event?  Is it not a good time, for her, to sit in
isolation and meditate on the Self?"   Subbaramiah came back to her
house after lunch in Asram and told her the words of Bhagavan
Ramana.

What more consolation one needs from a Guru for such an occasion
of remorse?

All the sastras has got deeper meaning. In olden days where there was no electrial appliances, ladies had to do all the work like pulling water from the well, grinding, pounding. They never have rest. So elders allowed to take rest. During that time ladies could have rest for the body and do dhyan. Really it is ARTHAMULLA INDHUMADHAM.
In spite of lots of inventions and facilities, ladies cannot find time for anything.

Keeping the women away from work, during to mensturation was
as much for biological reasons as it was for psychological reasons.
Mind is disturbed for them during that period,  because of the wasted
eggs from the ovary.  Western psychologists have said, many crimes
and many suicides take place among womenfolk during those monthly
periods.  Perhaps Dr. Raju can explain it more.
