A sati is a woman who is so pure that she never has any thoughts of men other than her own husband. She does not get attracted to other men through mind, body and speech.
How can there be such satis in this Kaliyug (current time cycle of lack of unity in thoughts, speech and acts)? Even in Satyug (time cycle of truth and unity of thought, speech and acts) there were very few satis. So how can there be any in Kaliyug?
It is not the fault of women that they do not become a sati in this time cycle. Women are like goddesses. The Soul is the Soul, whether it be in form of a man or a woman, the only difference is of the packing, the physical body. Being a woman is an effect of a kind and this effect works on the Soul because of the presence of ignorance. With the knowledge of the Self, this effect of a woman does not work on the Soul. This is liberation.
