How does Religion view Women? The Presence of Goddesses in Meetei Sanamahism

Elangbam Rabina

Abstract: Religion is among the most important institutions in society. The status of women in society is closely associated with how religion looks at women, and it largely determines the well-being of women . The presence of goddesses in Meetei Sanamahism shown by sacred books known as Puyas is an indicator of the high social status Sanamahism accords to women. The existence of Meetei cosmogony reflects a healthy inquisitiveness among people trying to understand the world around them without the help of modern science and technology.

Keywords: Cosmogony, Religion, Goddess, Meetei, Sanamahi
