As a woman, do you feel like you have been playing a role based on what society thinks women should be? As a man, do you feel you are limited by the world's description of masculinity? If so, this fascinating talk on male and female energy will open new doorways for you.
According to Rama, the popular notions of women and men are totally backwards in this confused age. We are taught that men are powerful and that women are the weaker of the sexes. The opposite is actually true. “Women are essentially much more powerful than men are,” according to Rama. Rama sees that “a woman's subtle physical body accepts light in this world much more readily than does a man's.” Regarding men, “the strength of a man's character,” Rama teaches, “is expressed through gentleness and through love and ultimately through discrimination.”
Due to the backwards descriptions that men and women have been given, enlightenment is more difficult for both sexes. To balance this aberrant social view of gender, Rama suggests the yoga of love for men and the yoga of power and mysticism for women as ways to balance the cultural conditioning and succeed on the pathway to self-realization.
