Brahmavadini Gargi was one of the great saints of Hinduism. The title Brahmavadini means the knower of Brahman, the ultimate divine reality. She was a contributor to the Vedas and Upanishads. It is important to note that there were more than 30 rishikas (female saints) who contributed to the Rigveda alone. Brahmavadini Gargi was born as Gargi Vachaknavi. She was one of the Navaratnas in the court of King Janak of Mithila. She is credited to be the teacher of Goddess Sita, the daughter of King Janak and wife of Lord Ram. Her dialogue with Maharishi Yajnavalkya is celebrated and revered as one the most spiritually enlightening conversations about creation and Brahman.
