Yesterday a call for STUDENT
LIFE COACH was posted and
can be emailed by just clicking on the words...
PVAF's program ideas and plan are based on ved
and dharma by which PVAF
operates. This needy for guiding prajaapati students
at the family level has been there in ved
since the start of this creation cylce....here is an example in the slok
2.50.226 in naarad puraan:
"Studies carried on
with the help of the books only
without the guidance and mentoring of
do not shine
in the assembly of learned men;
similar to a woman impregnated by a lover other than her husband."
The first guru of a child is the jointly birth parents. The mother teaches sanskaar
meaning virtuous habits and behavior based on dharma
to the child. The father teaches about the purushaarth
of life meaning the four objectives of life. These purushaarth
- to create artha meaning wealth
and involve in politics of social governance for sustenance of life by one's
- to perform karma related to kaam
which means fulfilling all desires and wishes including recreation and
- to achieve both of the above by following rules of dharma;
- to have attainment of moksh as
the ultimate objective meaning to attain knowledge that oneself and creator
brhmah are ONE.
Please click on the next line to read about the previous posting on how both
guru-ship is missing in the prajaapati community.....and how YOU
In the continuing survey that is being conducted to learn about why prajaapati
community in gujaraat
has so much illiteracy from one generation to another which
translates to poverty from one generation to another....it has been discovered
that prajaapati communities do not have any form of
structured life counseling
in any prajaapati
samaaj....starting from an individual family to organized samaajo.....
.... here is an example from a student application where a student takes a
university study with no potential for employment:
"After completion of B.E. in Production Engineering. , I have decided to do
M.E. (Master of Engineering.). I will have to study two year in M.E. then I
will be able to get job as a lecturer . I want to pursue this study, because I can easily get a job in any
Engineering college. I have decided to study this course part time. Because of
unemployment in the production industry and on the base of B.E. in Production
Engineering, there is some difficulty in getting job. But it is easy to get a job as a lecturer.
In a production company, starting salary is 4000/- to 5000/- Rs. per month but
as a lecturer starting salary is 8000/- Rs. per month. I can doing my job in Gujarat
& outside of Gujarat."
It takes a minimum of Rs 4000 per month for a family of four to live from
hand to mouth and after inheriting a free house to live in.....The above noted
student is already in the 3rd year of a 4-year course which is costing Rs 18,000
a year....had this student be guided properly he/she would not be in this
terrible bind... .
IS A VIDYAA-DAAN
THE HIGHEST QUALITY DAAN
IT CHANGES LIFE FOR BETTER
