Narad as women

this is something India of yours does not share with modern India. we have stories of Narad falling into a pond and emerging from it as a woman this is how he discovers the meaning of Maya…

another story tells of Shiva bathing in the Yamuna to become a woman and dance with Krishna, in ahamadabad the bath there is a temple belonging to bahu Chara a goddess who writes the rooster, it is said that there was a pond here that could turn women into men those who seek a male child still visits this dried-up bond and seek blessings from hijara men who have chosen to dress like women a ritual held every year…

in pondicherry remembers the marriage of Arjuna's son our one who was going to be sacrificed for the sake of victory in the Mahabharat war Krishna turned into a woman called Mohini and married him, she even wailed for him when he was sacrificed in the clitoris Ramayana…{ In fact, before the sacrifice, Iravan expressed his desire to marry. Now it was difficult in front of the Pandavas that how a father could marry his daughter to the person who is to be killed. The Pandavas had a dilemma as to which woman should be persuaded to marry Iravan. In such a situation, Lord Krishna himself married Iravana in the form of Mohini and spent the night with him.

The next day, according to the condition, Irvan surrenders his head at the feet of mother Kali. After Iravan's death, Sri Krishna also mourns for a long time in the same siren as her husband's death and then later returns to his male form. Since Krishna, despite being a man, married Iravan in the female form, just like today, every year, the eunuchs who are considered as male are married to Iravan in full female form for one night and then the next day. Mourn at his death.}

there is a story of do women who make love to each other, in the absence of their husband and reduce a child without bones.

one way to understand these stories is to appreciate that in ancient India lines dividing male from female and heterosexual from homosexual were blurred these deals were told without guilt or shame and are not uncommon by any means…

where do these stories stem from perhaps they have their roots, in Indian metaphysics in a world where all manifestations of the divine are said to exist there is space not only for men and women but also for men with a woman's heart and women with a man's needs masculinity and femininity are only labels that are applied to bodies…

being occupied by eternal Souls the Hindu view of the world has always been friendly towards different ways of being and seeing in the Bhagavad Gita Krishna tells Arjuna not to be arrogant, he tells him that,
“there is much more to this universe than the human mind can fathom though the human mind creates boundaries reality is diverse and can contain everything this is the point being made.”

by Hindu temples when they juxtapose beautiful observers with bloodthirsty demons in their architecture they teach us that,
 “there is nothing unnatural in nature and that every way of being is a manifestation of the divine.”
