‘కార్యేషు దాసి, కరణేషు మంత్రి, భోజ్యేషు మాతా, రూపేచ లక్ష్మీ, శయనేషు రంభ, క్షమయా ధరిత్రీ… ఈ వాక్యాలకు చక్కటి ఉదాహరణ నువ్వు’

Meaning of ‘Karyeshu Dasi, Karaneshu Manthri; Bhojeshu Mata, Shayaneshu Rambha, Roopeshu lakshmi, Kshamayeshu Dharitri, Shat dharmayukta, Kuladharma Pathni’.

According to a popular verse of Neeti Sara which is written by a man, the 6 Noble Virtues a housewife should have are summed up in the verse, ‘Karyeshu Dasi, Karaneshu Manthri; Bhojeshu Mata, Shayaneshu Rambha, Roopeshu lakshmi, Kshamayeshu Dharitri, Shat dharmayukta, Kuladharma Pathni’. Wifely virtues are also described in Tulasi Ramayana (Sri Ramacharitamanasa) Aranya Kanda verse 4 as advice given to Sita by Sage Atri’s wife Ansuya.

1) Karyeshu Dasi: works like a servant
2) Karaneshu Mantri : advises like a minister
3) Bhojeshu Mata: feeds like a mother
4) Shayaneshu Ramba : Pleases in bed like the heavenly beauty Rambha
5) Roopeshu Lakshmi : Beautiful like Goddess Lakshmi
6) Kshmayeshu Dharitri : Having patience like Earth
7) Shat dharma yuktah: woman who has this six virtues
8) Kula dharma Patni : good housewife (a married woman who is not employed outside the home)

Beauty and Rambha may not be applicable nowadays …
My opinion is inner beauty is more important
Marriage is a sacred thing . So dont give more importance to Physical contact.

After attending some devotional seminars I got good idea on how to treat one’s wife.

——-

In short, a good housewife should

Be like a servant in doing the chores of the House
give intelligent advice like a minister to her husband
serve food to the husband as lovingly as a mother feeds her son
like a courtesan in the Bedroom
Beautiful like Maha Lakshmi and
Have the forbearance of Mother Earth

    Umm and what are the duties of a husband? If men expect such perfection from wives, then they should also embody such perfection themselves. Why expect perfect wives without first asking if one can be a perfect husband or not?

    Khshayaneshu Rambla means giving the utmost pleasuse in bed. It does not mean beautiful. It is about the physical satisfaction that the couple enjoys. One need not be beautiful physically to do this. It is at times the other way. Mam sees the lady more passionately after a good satisfaction in bed. They somehow seem to be more beautiful than before.
    On the other hand, all beautiful ladies may not be good in this. They don’t understand the importance or they may not have the interest and they don’t attract the man’s attention towards them eventually.

    Perform household chores like a servant ? For real?? What a load of horse crap.I hope you’re helping your wife out in the household chores.She’s a human being just like you and an equal not a servant.

    A woman should never be like a servant ..she should be respected for her thoughts …she has all the rights to do a job outside her home ..she should be pure in her thoughts…this makes a woman perfect…as a wife daughter n frnd
