Abstract

In ancient India society, the women had little to no importance in the family and in society but were a spiritual support and foundation for hero’s strength in particular and for the community strength in general. The women were able to inspire action and hero’s aspirations with her own nobility and deep human affection. The general characteristics of the women in ancient Indian literature were their compassion and generosity, their persistence and patience spirit, their love, faithful loyalty and the desire for happiness which are considered as “the golden rule”, the typical image for Indian culture and an endless source of inspiration for Indian art and literature. The portrayal of women with the outer and inner beauty in relation to social issues (religion, caste, marriage) according to the concept of Dharma praised and respected by the Indian people.
