This Skanda Purana is an important to me of the series as it contains varied descriptions of our ancient heritage. Curiously enough, the now widely popular story: the ‘Satyanarayan Katha’ owes its origin to this very Purana.
It is hoped our discerning readers would accord a warm welcome to Skanda Purana as they did to the earlier Puranas of the present series. We would welcome any suggestion from our readers to make the present series more relevant and meaningful.
What does a woman need? What are a woman's rights? Who gives women their rights? Society that pays them half the compensation men get for the same job? Or religions?
Any religion that claims it gives women their rights must be lying. Religions come from prophets. Prophets come from women's wombs. And sorry, women don't come from Adam's rib. So, effectively, religion is yet another child of womanhood which is incapable of offering anything to the mother.
This book is about real feminism - first movement for women. It started with first woman on earth and continued ever since. It is from time when women were prophets and men were disciples. Women decided what they will do and what they deserve. Rest of the world just listened with bowed head.
This book is the compilation of mesmerizing verses of the only women prophets world has ever seen. Women prophets of Hinduism! From the oldest text of human civilization. The Vedas! When Mother Goddess chats with Her daughters. And the daughters respond.
By the time you complete the book, you will feel divinity within if you are a woman. You will feel divinely blessed for being amidst divinity if you are a man. And you will certainly realize why heaven, if there is any, lies under mother's feet.
