"Women are more spiritual than men, men are more worldly. That is
why men dominate this world"
The percentage of criminals are more among men. Men are more
egoistic than women. Psychology says that men are more likely to
become irritable, angry, or violent than women. It says that men
are aggressive and domineering and territorial, and women are
kind, caring and sharing. Stastics say that 4 out 5 suicides are
committed by men, and 85% of the homeless are men.
"Men just brag about their spirituality, but women live it."
Men try to use logic and reasoning in spiritality. The subject of
spirituality is beyond logic. The benefits of spirituality can
not be obtained with reasoning. A man gets them if he has faith.
"Our two minds .... One is an act of the emotional mind, the
other of the rational mind. In a very real sense we have two
minds, one that thinks and one that feels" (Daniel Goleman,
Emotional Intelligence, Bloomsbury Publishing, London, 1996, page
8). This rational mind is also called the faculty of logic and
The emotional mind is subconscious mind and the rational mind is
the conscious mind. The Upanishads call the emotional component
of mind as Chitta and the rational component of mind as Manas.
The nature of Manas changes gradually and minutely with every
perception and learning. The nature of Chitta never changes. In
general, women excel in Chitta and men excel in Manas. Chitta is
connected with religion and spirituality.
"Women are more moral and spiritual than men".
"Women are more sensitive to the Holy Spirit than men".
Women are also more likely than men to pray.
(75 percent versus 62 percent)
Women are also more likely than men to experience spiritual and
especially psychological distress, with about one-third
(32%, compared to only 20%).
"Women Are the Backbone of religious congregations in America"
Women are 57% more likely to participate in Sunday school.
Women are 39% more likely to have a devotional time.
Women are 33% more likely to volunteer for a church.
Women arae 29% more likely to share faith with others.
Women, more often than not, take the lead role in the spiritual
life of the family. Women typically emerge as the primary - or
only - spiritual mentor and role model for family members.
While men typically emphasize such issues as career attainment,
achieving financial independence, and decision-making competence,
most women place a premium on matters of faith.
Women are much more inclined than are men to say that they are
"absolutely committed" to religious faith.
Women are superior to men in spirituality. They have subtler
senses, they are more sensitive, compassionate and loving, more
mystic and get easily enlightened.
This fact is known among Hindus since millenia. Women are
naturally more spiritually inclined and devoted to the Beloved
Lord than men... Why is it the case that women are more
devotional? Devotion starts as sentiment or emotion. For it is
with emotional force that we take all of our existence away from
external objects and internal objects (ideas, complexes,
attachments, etc.) and run towards the Supreme Subjectivity and
surrender all 'I'. Men rarely appreciate such surrender.
A living being requires adaptation to the changing conditions of
external and internal environment. French physiologist Claude
Bernard proposed the law of Homeostasis which states that
constancy (or stability) of internal environment is a necessary
condition for a living being. It uses it's internal autonomous
regulation systems to accomplish this task.
It may be noted here that the very logic of 'constancy' prohibits
development with time required for a living being. In feedback
control systems of Electrical Engineering, existence of a
negative component is a must, and it is used as feedback to
obtain automatic control of a system. Accordingly, development
(or growth) should be called a 'disturbance' (or deviation) of
constancy. It is programmed in the genes of a living being for
continuation of the species. The law of deviation of Homeostasis
was developed in 1979 by Soviet physiologist V.M. Dilman.
The law of Homeostasis works dominantly in women, and the law of
deviation of Homeostasis works dominantly in men. It is due to
this Homeostasis, women live longer than men. They extend their
Homeostasis to men. Modern medicine knows that married men live
longer than bachelors by about 10 to 15 years.
