Shiva’s thoughts on women

शिवहिमाचलसंवादवर्णनं नाम द्वादशोऽध्यायः
Shiva-Himalaya dialogue description Chapter 12

महेश्वर उवाच |
The great God (just opened the eyes and) said (to Himalaya)

अतस्तपस्विना शैल न कार्या स्त्रीषु संगतिः |
महाविषयमूलं सा ज्ञानवैराग्यनाशिनी || 33 ||
Mountain, therefore, an ascetic practising austerities should not have contact with women. She (any woman) is the cause of a lot of sense attachment and a destroyer of asceticism and knowledge.

God has said all this in front of Parvati. Now God gets a response from her.
