EDUCATION IS EQUALLY A MUST FOR MEN AN WOMEN IN ENTIRE MANKIND.....SO SAYS SKAND PURAAN....
Posted by Champaklal Dajibhai Mistry on December 1, 2002

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 boys..

..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 family..

.....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 moksh....

skand puraan teaches the following regarding the value and importance of a woman in life:

  1. 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 1.2.22.38).
  2. A woman is the household of a man and hence she is called a grhiNii.
  3. A man is born as a son from this woman called grhiNii and hence this grhiNii is also eulogized respectfully as jaayaa.
  4. 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 1.2.15.7-10)
  5. brahmaa-dev has stipulated that if a girl or a woman should never be neglected.
  6. 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 sat....
