(1) "If you believe in the omnipresence of god, you have to believe that he's in the air you breathe. so, you are actually touching him during your periods. who can deny that ? It's as simple as that." .... ('Vindhyas' commenting on Aug. 9, 2017, in 'Why A Lady During Menstruation Is Not Allowed To Do Puja Or Cooking?' --- http://creative.sulekha.com/why-a-lady-during-menstruation-is-not-allowed-to-do-puja-or-cooking_212700_blog?c=2422776#2422776)

(2) "... the priests who I met over here (U.S.A.) are pretty knowledgeable and wise and weren't anything (as) stupidly ritualistic. I once offered to volunteer to make a dish for the temple prasadam, but then on the day I was supposed to make it, I got my periods. I went and asked the temple priest's wife on what I should do. She said, he's going to tell me what he tells her to do when she gets hers and she had to make the naivedyams (holy prasadam). That's to just sprinkle some turmeric water on the head and go ahead with the preparation of the dish. He then came and assured me that it's fine, and not be too caught up in the ritualistic part." ....
