Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Saṅgati (सङ्गति) refers to “association (with women)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.12.—Accordingly, as Śiva said to Himācala (i.e., Himālaya): “[...] A woman is a phase of illusion. As the scholars who have mastered the Vedas say particularly, a young damsel is a hindrance to ascetics. [...] O mountain, by contact with a woman, worldliness springs up; non-attachment perishes and the virtuous penance is destroyed. Hence, O mountain, no ascetic shall have any truck with women [i.e., saṅgatikāryā strīṣu saṃgatiḥ]. A woman is the root of all worldly attachments. She destroys all wisdom and detachment together”.
