“Hinduism and Women.” Please respond to the following: Explain the general roles of goddesses in Hinduism. o Women of Hinduism are “thought to make good earthly life”. By that saying, women are thought to bring order in society, marital wealth (by bearing sons), and by the sensual pleasure to stimulate the male to make him more of a spiritualizing life force. Identify one of the goddesses that particularly intrigue you and explain her role within Hinduism. o Maya as intrigued me the most. Maya, which stands for illusion, is believed to be the overall goddess of illusions and is able to create the difference between “me and mine”. I feel May is more recognized in the present world today. I still however do not know a lot about Maya and how Maya is played into Hinduism. Based on what you have read about how women are regarded within Hinduism, provide at least one reason based on Hindu beliefs that explains women’s status.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
