veD is a word in sNskRUt language meaning SCIENCES OF CREATION AND LIFE.....And at this web site hosted by Prajapati Vishva Aashram Foundation (PVAF) the primary mandate IS TO SHARE THE LEARNING AND TEACHING OF veD by the entire humanity....

All the historical research and evidence about current humanity points to a common heritage of evolution and progress of human lifestyle across the current known timeline on this planet earth....The human lifestyle on this planet earth appears to be in a continual flux of change showing differing lifestyle of culutre and civilization among different races of peoples....But the common factor in all different lifestyle cultures and civilizations is DHARm...All cultures and civilizations of all lifestyle of past, present and future depend on humans living by the universal rules, regulations and laws called DHARm in their daily, weekly, yearly and life-span durations....DHARm is an operating system of life similar to what the current humanity is getting used to in computer world of MICROSOFT OPERATING SYSTEM....DHARm is defined as a way of life in which the universal law of operation by one and all is:

 one should not do any kARm
(thought, word or physical activity)
which can
 hurt oneself and/or any other fellow creation....
All kARm should create
growth of
 wealth, prosperity and happiness
for oneself and others 

(The above knowledge sharing was provided from the veD library of SRii chmpklaal Daajibhaai misTRii of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada..)

The above is so universal that the fundamental law of DHARm applies to any country, race, culture or civilization that currently exists on this planet earth...The proof is in the real life anecdote from the Chinese culture, civilization and nation...this real life anecdote provides the harmonious co-existence is a state of mind which empowers two humans to have unconditional respect, reverence and love for accepting one another as creator bRH`m (called as God, Allah, Yahweh or infinite other names) has designed and created for experiencing each other as creator bRH'm's manifestation of infinite shktio (powers) which can create any show that one wishes to experience.....Please click on the next line to experience and learn veD from this Chinese life anecdote which we at PVAF are sure happens to every human who is or will be a daughter-in-law to a mother-in-law or any other human relationship one can think of...The anecdote was submitted for publishing by SRii Amitab Sharma from Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada......      


A long time ago in China, a girl named Li-Li got married and went to live with her husband and mother-in-law. In a very short time, Li-Li found that she couldn't get along with her mother-in-law at all. Their personalities were very different, and Li-Li was angered by many of her mother-in-law's habits. In addition, she criticized Li-Li constantly.

Days passed days, and weeks passed weeks. Li-Li and her mother-in-law never stopped arguing and fighting. But what made the situation even worse was that, according to ancient Chinese tradition, Li-Li had to bow to her mother-in-law and obey her every wish. All the anger and unhappiness in the house was causing Li-Li's poor husband great distress. Finally, Li-Li could not stand her mother-in-law's bad temper and dictatorship any longer, and she decided to do something about it.

Li-Li went to see her father's good friend, Mr. Huang, who sold herbs. She told him the situation and asked if he would give her some poison so that she could solve the problem once and for all. Mr. Huang thought for a while, and finally said, "Li-Li, I will help you solve your problem, but you must listen to me and obey what I tell you."

Li-Li said, "Yes, Mr. Huang, I will do whatever you tell me to do."

Mr. Huang went into the back room, and returned in a few minutes with a package of herbs. He told Li-Li, "You can't use a quick-acting poison to get rid of your mother-in-law, because that would cause people to become suspicious. Therefore, I have given you a number of herbs that will slowly build up poison in her body. Every other day prepare some delicious meal and put a little of these herbs in her serving. Now, in order to make sure that nobody suspects you when she dies, you must be very careful to act very friendly towards her. But follow these three ancient rules of life with your mother-in-law:

  •  make sure not to argue with her,
  • make sure to obey her every wish, and
  • make sure to treat her like a queen."

Li-Li was so happy. She thanked Mr. Huang and hurried home to start her plot of murdering her mother-in-law. Weeks went by, and months went by, and every other day, Li-Li served the specially treated food to her mother-in-law. She remembered what Mr. Huang had said about avoiding suspicion, so she controlled her temper, obeyed her mother-in-law, and treated her like her own mother.

After six months had passed, the whole household had changed because:

  • Li-Li had practiced controlling her temper so much that she found that she almost never got mad or upset.
  • She hadn't had an argument with her mother-in-law in six months because she now seemed much kinder and easier to get along with.
  • The mother-in-law's attitude toward Li-Li changed, and
  • she began to love Li-Li like her own daughter.
  • She kept telling friends and relatives that Li-Li was the best daughter-in-law one could ever find.
  • Li-Li and her mother-in-law were now treating each other like a real mother and daughter.
  • Li-Li's husband was very happy to see what was happening.

One day, Li-Li came to see Mr. Huang and asked for his help again. She said, "Dear Mr. Huang, please help me to keep the poison from killing my mother-in-law! She's changed into such a nice woman, and I love her like my own mother. I do not want her to die because of the poison I gave her."

Mr. Huang smiled and nodded his head and said.

  • "Li-Li, there's nothing to worry about. I never gave you any poison.
  • The herbs I gave you were vitamins to improve her health.
  • The only poison was in your mind and your attitude toward her,
  • but that has been all washed away by the love which you gave to her."


Have you ever realized that
how you treat others is exactly
 how they will treat you?

There is a wise Chinese saying: 'The person who loves others will also be loved in return.'

God might be trying to work in another person's life through you. If this message has touched your heart please forward it to your friends so they too can join in the power of prayer. You just never know who might need it.
