EDUCATION FOR A GIRLS MUST BE TO FIT HER STATURE AS A GRHINII WHO CREATES A HOUSEHOLD.....SO SAYS SKAND PURAAN....
Posted by Champaklal Dajibhai Mistry on December 2, 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..

The previous posting of Items 1 to 6 is continued today with the following is supplemented with other ved sources what skand puraan teaches 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....
  7. A wife is necessary for a man for the performance and consequently obtaining the desired fruits of any vedik vidhi such as yagna, kathaa..
  8. In a household where the householder (man of the house) pleases and delights his wife and daughters by providing with good food, good dresses supplemented with ornaments, all devio (who are shaktio of brhmah) grant krupaa (grace) and reside in the household. All undertakings of such a householder (man of the house) are realized with success. (slok 4.1.40.59 expanded with other ved knowledge)
  9. Even a glance from a chaste woman purifies the whole body. Even surya-dev (brhmah's shakti empowering sun) is afraid to touch a chaste woman with his rays....so much is the aadhyaatmik shakti (power of aatmaa or soul) of a chaste woman.....and hence the need for parents to teach a girl to be chaste all her life and follow strii-dharma (dharma of a woman)....
  10. stri-dharma prescribes a chaste woman not to desert her husband even if the husband is frigid or cheats on her....but to try her best to bring her husband to see and practice his own dharma as her husband....(and in reciprocation of the above).....
  11. A woman is shuddha (pure) in every part of her person. Even if a woman is raped or has been in the custody of a robber, she should never be abandoned. The abandonment of a oman has no sanction or permission from ved and shaastra. Women become pure by their menstrual flow.....(slok 4.1.40.46-48)...

A GIRL BECOMES WOMAN
WHO
CREATES THE NEXT GENERATION

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....
  7. .....continued in the front part of posting today

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....

Om

When we educate a son, he moves ahead in life thus so. He may bring the family
the wealth of material goods, but, the education usually stay inside of his mind
often used in realms away from the home.

But, when we educate a daughter, she moves the family ahead in all sectors
of society. For it is the Mother that is the first teacher of the children. It is she
that brings the joys of knowledge into the child's hearts and can be of considerable
assistance to her husband in the prusuit of financial gain.

When we look at great men and women, we almost always note that it was the MOther's intellect and wisdom that was the foundation for the child's success.

This is why we read so much praise of their MOhter's from those that we honour
in the stream of Life.

More so, many of the Great Ones of religious life where not raised even with
fathers, but, by Mothers, we have only to look into the history to see Herstory
a bright and guiding light-like the Moon in the darkest night.
