Choose Brahmin Mates Swayamvara At Chennai

In consumer forum on April 23, 2014 at 11:01

I have lamented the fact that the Brahmin Community is finding it difficult to find suitable Mates .

 

This problem has become more pronounced now because of various factors.

 

1.Girl’s parents delaying the marriage.

 

2.Girls and Boys having imaginary Ideal Girl/Boy and waiting for a Wave length.

 

3.As the custom of circulating the Horoscope  is getting diminished because of shrinking Families and same community friends, the choice becomes

restricted to  only Internet, Matrimonial sites.

 

Though these are effective, the communication conveyed through these sites by the uploaders  do not receive possible Brides/Grooms.

 

And in most of these sites, the educational and salary expectations are so high and unrealistic, one wonders how people with less qualification/Income get married at all.

 

In the case of Boy’s parents willing to marry a Girl from of a Family of not affluent means, the girl’s parents suspect that there is some thing wrong with the boy,because of , in their perception,unequal alliance.

 

And in may a case, the communication between the parents of the Boys and Girls do not proceed smoothly as person to person communication is much better than Email/Video Chats.

 

I found the following information in Facebook and am sharing it.

 

Marriage proposals at Chennai.

Principles Of Parenting In The Vedas Hinduism

In Hinduism, Parenting on April 18, 2014 at 12:57

 

Hinduism takes parenting as it takes everything about Life or Death.

 

It does not accord  Parenting any special place or does it ignore it.

 

It treats as a routine affair of Life and treats is such.

Sikshavalli, Taittriya Upanishad Rules behaviour for Children

Principles Of Life,Taittiriya Upanishad

 

Conceiving and giving Birth to a Child and bringing it up is taken so naturally as it treats the highest thoughts of Philosophy .

 

It considers all these as a Natural process and one need not be overly concerned about this  as such.

 

The Vedas offer basic Guide lines.

 

1.Dharmachara, Righteous Conduct.

 

Behavior should be according to the Dharma, Moral Principle.

 

Parents are expected to behave he way they expect their children to behave towards them or others when they become adults.

 

Parents are prohibited from using vulgar language or the use of harsh words in front of their children.

 

 

2.Dharma Svagriha.

 

Worship at Home.

 

Parents should set an examples of following the Anushtaanas laid down for them in the Shastras.

 

They must perform Sandyavandan thrice a Day.

 

Perform other duties like Aupaasanam and other nithya karmas-read my posts on Rituals of Hindus, Samskaaras.

 

Give the pride of place for the family Deity.

 

Worship the Gods at fixed time daily at Home.

 

Vedas do not speak about. building a Temple, much less visiting Temples.

 

3.Dharma Sambhashana.

 

Talking about Righteousness , Moral Books, Purans, Itihaas and of course the Vedas.

 

Parents are expected to read and teach children these sacred texts.

 

“Children should grow in the awareness of the brotherhood of man and the fatherhood of God. If no provision is made for this atmosphere and this teaching, we are denying them their due.”-Atharva Veda

 

The scripture also cautions parents that if children learn to worship money and material things, they will grow up admiring cruelty and deceit, rather than love and compassion.

 

4.Dharma Svadhyaya, Self Study

 

Self study is given priority.

 

Children are to be sent to Gurkula, Home of The Teaher, at the age of Five, after having performed Upanayana, for a minimum twelve years.

 

At the Gurukul,which would be their Home for the next twelve years, the children are taught, apart from the Vedas , the other Sciences like Maths,

Physics,Biology, Warfare and the like.

 

After completing the Gurukul vasa the individual is  expected to engage himself in Self Study.

 

This is not time bound.

 

One is expected to learn throughout his Life.

 

5. Dharma Sangha. Follow a Preceptor.

 

One is expected to follow a Preceptor.

 

The Spiritual Guru is to be chosen carefully.

 

If one’s desire is strong enough, the Guru shall seek him.

 

The Taittriyopanishad  contains elaborate instructions to the Student.
