Masculinity is a core part of the ‘SatPurusha’. So the majority of the writing in it is about Masculinity and its relationship to men today. Many people see this as a controversial area, but the site works to bring clarity and sense to it.

Masculinity is an important area for men to consider. Bit it seems that he more men come to terms with their masculinity, the more the tension seems to grow between men and women. Yet, from the perspective looked at in the writing, this shift should bring them together. Often the stress and tension between men and women stem from misunderstanding and confusion. It, so often, comes from people seeing the world in terms that are too simplistic.

Masculinity varies for each man dependent on personality, family and culture. This results in a common thread of a set of characteristics that allow men to feel masculine. As a result men can accept that there is a core essence they are born with, and understand what it is. Then they can live that essence with authenticity. But it is crucial that men need to understand how family, friends and society have influenced them.

In celebrating the differences between men and women, they can treat others as equals. This comes from men understanding that social norms are models created by the dominant culture. They should feel no pressure to adhere to male stereotypes unless it is appropriate, but they should celebrate their masculinity.

Men should be bold in life, but they need to make sure it is an examined life. This means they can live a life that they stand by and are willing to defend. Of course, it is not the only answer, it is only a way, a direction.
