Woman can help the evolution of man

Amrit Sadhana

Something remarkable has happened in Saudi Arabia--women traveling alone are now allowed to stay in hotels. This is being seen as a major step towards women’s rights in Saudi Arabia. reports eTN.
This is a landmark decision by the Saudi government. I was ecstatic to read about it because I feel strongly about women's freedom-- not the so called liberation, mind you--real flowering of her as an individual.

I love Osho because he has given equal opportunity to women so that they can blossom to their utmost potential. Osho has great regard for feminine qualities: love, trust, care, intuition, compassion, poetry, aesthetics and so on.
Look what he says in this piece:

" I will continue to give woman every possible opportunity which she has been denied in the past. And there will be more women who will come to the surface. And they will prove my point that you are absolutely equal to men, there is no question of inferiority. Perhaps something may be superior in you, because you are the mother of man. The man has your blood, your bones, your marrow; all that the man has is a contribution from the woman. It was out of fear that woman might prove superior that man started putting her down.
It is now up to you not to be bothered about the past -- that which is gone is gone -- but to be ready for the future, and prove to man and to the whole of humanity that man need not be afraid of you; he can trust you. And you can be of immense help in the evolution of man."
