Q.18. Should women discontinue Upasana during menstrual periods?


Ans. While undergoing menstrual cycles, women are both mentally and physically under exertion. Besides, they are unable to maintain the required degree of physical cleanliness. As such, they are recommended to do mental Jap only. This rule is also applicable to other states of cleanliness (when there are discharges through sweat, nose, eyes, boils etc.). Proper cleanliness is a prerequisite for any spiritual exercise.
