Dear All,

 

Sixth of the Ten Commandments:

 

6)   Swadhyaya Pravachandaabhyam na pramaditavyam - ( Hold on to self study and teaching)

Significance of Gandhian Viewpoint of Value Education in the Twenty-First Century

 “The ancient aphorism, ‘Education is that which liberates’ is as true today as it was before. Education here does not mean mere spiritual knowledge, nor does liberation signify only spiritual liberation after death. Knowledge includes all training that is useful for the service of mankind and liberation means freedom from all manners of servitude even in the present life. Servitude is of two kinds: slavery to domination from outside and one’s own artificial needs. The knowledge…

Ten Commandments for Students from Taittiriya Upanishad – Part 6

Dear All,

 

Forth of the Ten Commandments:



4. Acquire Wealth legitimately :( bhootyei na Pramaditavyam):
