The Knowledgeable Persons Shall Hate Five Types Of Women!


The knowledgeable persons shall hate the
following five types of women, like enemy
and will not have the company

of the girl who has not attained puberty!
of the woman who had attained menopause!
of the ascetic woman who practices asceticism!

of the woman who is not leaving the desire
of beautifying her exuberantly and being a whore
without chastity; and of others wives!

    woman before puberty,
    woman after menopause,
    woman being ascetic,
    woman sticking to glamour
    and woman promiscuous
    are five kinds of woman
    abhorred by the wise as foes.
