Romasha | Daughter of Brihaspati

Romasha was a woman Rishi, who lived during the ancient Vedic period, and her rich contribution to the Vedas cannot be forgotten by the Hindus, and her writings were mentioned in the Rig Veda (1.126).

She also performed fire sacrifices, similar to ancient Vedic male sages, and gave a fresh life to the Vedic literature. She had worn the sacred thread similar to Hindu Brahmin Sages, by establishing that men and women are equal in all aspects. Though she was criticised by many learned scholars, she didn’t get upset, and continued the divine service till the end of her life.

Romasha is believed to be the daughter of Guru Brihaspati, and she is the wife of King Swanaya, who was well known for his generosity, kindness and affection with others. She contained very beautiful hair, and she didn’t wear any clothes, but covered her body only with full of hair. Her husband, King Swanaya had later become a famous rishi and lived a pious life along with his wife Romasha. The name of Ma Romasha is mentioned in various other texts of Hinduism also.

Romasha was a very pure and chaste woman who had shared her vast knowledge with the people. She is still remembered for her selfless nature, kind attitude and for her sincere devotion on Lord Shiva.
