The meaning of Gargi

Women of the Vedic period were prominent with their exemplary intellectuality and supreme spiritual attainment. Gargi is one of those exceptional women and one of the well known scholars and prophetess.
Gargi was the daughter of sage Vachaknu and her inclination towards academics was very conspicuous from an early age. Gargi composed several hymns, questioning the origin of all existence. When King Janak of Videha organized a 'Brahmayajna'- a philosophic meet, her participation was highly estimated. She presented a series of questions on the soul or 'Atman' which silenced even the greatest sage of that time - Yajnavalkya.


Gargi has got mentions in the Upanishads. She is honored there as a great natural philosopher.
Numerological Meaning- People with this name tend to be very warm and nurturing. They are extremely reliable and are often found taking care of others. They have a deep need to try and create harmony in their surroundings. Unfortunately, this can sometimes lead to getting taken advantage of. They can have difficulties saying, "No." They can be quite successful as a Personal assistant, educator, or caterer to a small business.
