1Man without woman is half, and woman without man is half. They are part of one whole.There are a few things which only men can do, and there are a few things which only women can do that makes life more beautiful and more attractive.Between the two polarities, life becomes a magnetic pull. The whole romance of life, the whole poetry of life, is because of the polarity of man and woman. But man has ruled over women for millennia. He has been given every opportunity and chance and woman has been repressed continuously, has been crippled. She has not been allowed to compete shoulder to shoulder with man in life.That’s why we don’t know how many Gautam Buddhas on the woman’s side did not get the opportunity to blossom.

We don’t know how many Albert Einsteins have simply been denied any possibility for growth. My emphasis is to give respect to women — and equality is not against men. It is a world which belongs to you both and you both have to be together to make it as beautiful and as divine as possible. Man alone has been creating only wars — three thousand years, five thousand wars. Is life just to fight? Is life just to kill, massacre, rape? Your whole history is full of murder and you call those murderers your great men — Alexander the Great.And you don’t see that small murderers are being jailed, sentenced to death, and big murderers become your heroes. And it is because the woman has been completely cut off from contributing anything to life; otherwise there would not have been so many wars.No woman is interested in war, it is simply against feminine nature. She is interested in love, she is interested in a beautiful house, she is interested in a beautiful garden around the house. She is interested in small things, but those small things make life worth living. She is not interested in creating atomic weapons, nuclear missiles. She cannot understand what man goes on doing. Is he insane or something? Half of humanity is dying of starvation and the politicians who are all men and the generals who are all men go on piling up nuclear weapons.

They have already more than they need — seven hundred times more than they need to destroy this whole world.All that is living on the earth — trees, birds, animals, human beings, anything that is living — we have already seven hundred times more than enough material to destroy it. And still they go on piling it up. Do you think this is sanity when half the human race is dying of starvation? This is happening because man alone has been contributing to existence. He has not the compassion of a woman; he has only the hardness of a man.He does not allow the softness of woman to influence world affairs. We need a very balanced life, in which the man and the woman contribute equally. Life will be more peaceful, more lovable, more joyous. It will become a tremendous celebration. And in that celebration, my hope is we will be able to go beyond the ordinary, mundane enjoyment into cosmic bliss, into sat-chit-anand — into truth, into consciousness, into bliss.
