The Guru's Praise of Women

"We are born of woman, we are conceived in the womb of woman, and we are engaged and married to a woman. We make friendship with woman and the lineage continued because of woman. When one woman dies, we take another one, we are bound with the world through woman. Why should we talk ill of her, who gives birth to kings? The woman is born from woman; there is none without her. Only the One True Lord is without woman"
(Guru Nanak Dev Ji, Var Asa, Anng. 473)
Guru Amardas ji ordered women not to veil their faces in Guru ji's darbar.
It was a symbol of slavery. Be emancipated them from this symbol of slavery.
Religious gatherings were graced by women. Kirtan was now open to them.
There are no restrictions on the women at all.
Guru Hargobind ji called women
'...The conscience of man...'
It is with con­science man lives a steady life.
Guru Teg Bahadur blessed the women of Amritsar...
