Women's Dharma-Ancient and Modern
This famous Sanskrit verse remembers five women who appear in the two epics, Ramayana and Mahabharata. They are Ahalya, Draupadi Kunti Tara and Mandodari. The chanting of this shloka is supposed to stop people from sinful transgressions by just thinking about these names. These women are immortalized in myth and legend, and are held up as ideals.
