If a woman is pure she can save and purify man. She can purify the race. She can make a home a sacred temple.
Hindu women have been the custodians of the Hindu race.
Hindu religion and civilisation still survive in spite of the many foreign invasions.

The women are taught to regard chastity as their most priceless possession, and the loss of it equal to the eternal damnation of their soul.
From their very childhood religion is ingrained in Hindu women. As such they illumine and enliven the home through the glory of their purity. This is the secret of the endurance of the Hindu religion, civilisation and culture
