In the recent on-going survey of status of education in prajapaati
samaaj in gujaraat, Prajapati Vishva
Aashram Foundation (PVAF) is discovering that in the families
strapped in generations of poverty when it comes to deciding who gets education
among children in a family...preference is given to
..this is obviously done with a misunderstood concept that the girls in the
family do not need education as they will be married and gone to become
somebody's wife and mother to her husband's progeny...
.....whereas the boys will stay in the family and bring income to the
.....such a misunderstanding in parents is creating future mothers out of
this uneducated girls who would not have adequate knowledge about life to bring
up sons who would have knowledge to know the value of KNOWLEDGE in life.....
....thus not educating girls means one's own son would like
have a wife who would not have knowledge how to raise one's own
grandsons.....now that is not a very good decision making ......when one looks
at it from this point of view....
...nobody wishes one's sons to have wives with no knowledge
of bringing up grandsons who would not know the value of KNOWLEDGE..
...KNOWLEDGE IS THE ONLY THING THAT REMOVES DUKH
IN LIFE ....so says shree krishna
in bhagvad gitaa......and one of the
biggest DUKH (pain and
suffering) in life is POVERTY DUE TO NOT GETTING GOOD
JOBS.... BECAUSE ONE IS NOT EDUCATED... TO GET GOOD JOBS.....
PVAF's mandate is to research the SATYA
(TRUTH) about life and to broadcast the SATYA
to all humanity....here is the SATYA about the role of a girl in
the family from skand puraan..... A
puraan is a book of knowledge from our creator
brhmah to provide a seed for the creation of all one's karma
to realize the 4 purushaarth
(purposes) of life....arth, kaam, dharma and
skand puraan teaches the following
regarding the value and importance of a woman in life:
- A man and a woman is created from the same form of our creator
brhmah known as shiv-bhagvan
who is also called ardh-naari-shvar
(half man and half woman)...(slok 188.8.131.52).
- A woman is the household of a man and hence she is
called a grhiNii.
- A man is born as a son from this woman called grhiNii
and hence this grhiNii is
also eulogized respectfully as jaayaa.
- vidyaa (knowledge)
and wife are like teijas
(luminaries)....teijas is one of the shakti
of our creator brhmah with which brhmah
creates gnaanendriyo and karmendriyo,
antakaran and praan
to empower each creation to function as per its purpose of
creation.....because of such a high status of vidyaa
and a wife both these should be attained with efforts.....(slok
- brahmaa-dev has
stipulated that if a girl or a woman should never be neglected.
- brahmaa-dev further
says that brining up a daughter is ten times more punya
(meritorious) than bringing up a son by parents...(slok
1.2.23:44-47)...so how much paap
are mankind and prajaapatio parents
collecting by neglecting the education of their daughters....
With the krupaa (grace) of our
creator brhmah, the above teaching
will be continued in the days to come for kalyaan
(well-being and welfare) of humankind.....om tat
