In this work, the famous author summarizes for his 18th century audience a tradition that was then already over a thousand years old. The treatise advocates conformity. The author is interested in women not as individuals but as parts that fit into and strengthen the whole. The work is an admission of the power of non-conformist women to wreck the entire edifice of Hindu Society. For, when women are corrupted, all is lost.
