I read that, it was considered as wrong for a man to reject a woman's sexual/romantic advances on him.

Although in the linked question, it is written that it was only for a Kshatriya man. But I think It was applicable even for brahmins. As Ravan's mother Kaikesi too had approached Vishrava. And Vrishrava couldn't reject her due to the above principle.(I had watched this story of Vishrava and Kaikesi in Hindi serial Shreemad Bhagwad MahaPurana)

My question is - Was this principle applicable to both married and unmarried woman ? i.e. A man couldn't reject a woman's advances on him. Here I am not discussing if the woman will incur sin or not. Most probably she will (at least when she is married). But I am concerned only about the man.

Also I am not saying that this principle should be applied even in present modern world as polygamy has been legally banned for men. Plus there are many laws today because of which a man can land in trouble if he follows the above principle of not rejecting a woman.

  • Right and wrong is a matter of ethics, nothing to do with moksha or anything. One cannot land in trouble if he/she follows the laws of the land and time.

  • @mar For an enlightened person, there is no right or wrong. They exist on the head due to avidya. When the person is realized and enlightened, he gets liberation, even if it means being a butcher.

    @AbhasKumarSinha Right and Wrong = Dharma. Following Dharma is essential and is basic to live life. I am not able to understand what you are trying to say

    @AbhasKumarSinha Yes, Dharma is not absolute and it is different for every person eg- Varnasharma Dharma is diff for diff varna. It is written in Gita itself - we should follow our swadharma. and not dharma of others. Though yeah one can abandon one's dharma and do only bhakti of krishna. (Gita 18.66)
