The Shanthi Mantra spells out the context of the Vedic Education System.
ॐ सह नाववतु ।
सह नौ भुनक्तु ।
सह वीर्यं करवावहै ।
तेजस्वि नावधीतमस्तु मा विद्विषावहै ।
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥
“Aum. May we both (the guru and disciples) together be protected. May we both be nourished and enriched. May we both bring our hands together and work
The students started the recitation of the Vedic hymns in early hours of morning.
Various subjects were incorporated in the curriculum of Vedic education.
Though the Rigvedic education, being essentially religious and philosophical in
Two methods of teaching were being practiced during the Vedic period.
- The first method was Śruti (Oral) &
- The second was based on Chintan i.e. thinking.
In the oral method the students were to memorize the Mantras (Vedic hymns) and
Thinking method was another part of the teaching method. Through this an attempt was made to reserve the Veda Mantras and Richayas.
According to the Ancient Indian theory of education, the training of the mind and the process of thinking, are essential for the
Education was reduced to the three simple processes of :
‘Sravana’ was listening to the truths as they fell from the lips of the teacher.
The 2nd process of knowledge called ‘Manana’ implies that the pupil has to think out for himself the meaning of the lessons imparted to him orally by his teacher so that they may
The 3rd step known as ‘Niddhyasana’ means complete comprehension by the pupil of the truth that is taught so that he may live the truth and not merely explain it by word. Knowledge must result in realization.
Just as in modern days teachers encourage
Conclusion Remarks :
Thus, the ideal of the Vedic education was lofty. Ample opportunities were provided to the pupil
It is imperative that we revive such a glorious education system again for the benefit of humanity.

WHY PARENTS CHOOSE RELIGIOUS OR PARAMATMA'S NAMES FOR THEIR CHILDREN AND WHICH ARE THE EASIEST WAY TO WASH AWAY YOUR SINS.
Yesterday I had described the types of Naraka's and the Sin or Adharma for a person to be there.
1. Islamic puritanism
Lineage : Sirhindi -> Shāh Walīullāh ->Syed Ahmad Barelvi, Deobandi movement, Maulana Azad -> Jamaat e Islami
2. Muslim nationalism
Syed Ahmed Khan ->Jinnah, Iqbal - > Ayub Khan/Musharraf
The former originated largely as a religious movement.
It has its origins in Sirhindi, who voiced the view in 16th cen, that Akbar's policy was "Indianizing" Islam too much
Too much of Din-e-ilahi crap.
Let's keep Islam pure
That lineage continues in the thinking of 18th cen theologian Shah Waliullah , the Delhi based Islamic scholar who lived b/w 1703 and 1762
Waliullah like Sirhindi emphasized segregation/purity
and loyalty to the Ummah (the global Islamic whole)
Not to South Asian muslims per se
Waliullah once said
"Muslims, no matter where they live, they should be completely separated from the natives of that country in their culture, traditions and mannerisms. And wherever they are, they must be immersed in their Arabic splendor and Arabic trends”
This line of thinking continues in two 19th cen movements-
That of Syed Barelvi - who fought valiantly against Sikh rule in Punjab at Balakot
And that of the Deobandis in late 19th cen
A dispassionate study of the primary sources of
Islam, along with an analysis of the position of
women in societies where Islam was implemented, shows that Islam's emergence was a blessing for women and it drastically improved their previously poor status.
As far as relationship to God is concerned, there is absolutely no difference between men & women. Both are promised reward/punishment according to their conduct.
In addition to the verses which makes both genders one product in regard to spirituality, Quran, in addressing believers, often uses the expression 'believing men & women' to emphasize their equality in regard to their respective duties, rights, virtues & merits. Examples:
Quran being the rulebook for muslims demonstrates how certain things should be done which also includes rules regarding marriage, behaviour between spouses, separate rights of them which cant be taken away, Allah's warnings against pressuring/confining the wife etc some verses:
A THREAD 🧵
1. The first matter that it befits her to employ is taqwa (fear) of Allah secretly and openly, by exercising caution (wara') with regards to the sources of his food, drink, dress and earnings.
2. She is perceptive about her time and the corruptions of its people, that she may beware of them regarding her religion.
3. She concentrates on her own situation, having the aspiration to reform whatever is corrupt in her affairs, guarding her tongue and choosing her words.
4. If she speaks,, she speaks with knowledge when she sees speech to be correct.
5. If she remains silent, she remains silent with knowledge when she sees silence to be correct.
6. She rarely delves into that which does not conern her.
7. She fears from her tongue things more severe than she fears from her enemy.
8. She imprisons her tongue the way she imprisons her enemy, so that she may be safe from its evil and bad consequences.
It's your heart/conscience condemning you but the Bible says God is greater than your conscience
That Fellowship is intact. Let's not be using our earthly father to describe God
Issa Thread 🔥🔥
I often hear that when you sin, you break your Fellowship with God and to recover or restore back that fellowship you have to Confess your sins to God and all that
And there are people that have been running with this mindset but it's not consistent with the Christian realities
This misconception or idea that a Christian breaks fellowship comes from the old testament/Convenant thinking
That is in Deuteronomy 28, Where if you obeyed God He will get close to you
And when you don't He stays far from you
You can not be a Christian and living according to the old testament
In the new testament the Bible says we are united to God. You can’t get any closer to God than that and sin doesn’t break that union.
So they say you have to confess your sins so that you'd be forgiven and as a result of that the Fellowship is restored
See as a Christian all your sins are forgiven whether you confess them or not... Infact confessing does nothing when it comes to forgiveness

For candidates: evaluate prospective employers accordingly.
For startups employing e.g. engineers: given that your candidates should evaluate you accordingly, be *extra special* careful to operate like professionals with regards to e.g. interviewing, offers, and negotiation.
"Can you be more explicit about 'abusive' here?"
Not without violating a confidence, but as someone who has been on hiring side of table and is a capitalist, there are *clearly* things you could do which would be "sharp operating, but we're all sharp operators" in some contexts.
Hiring employees is often not one of those contexts. The nature of the relationship, the asymmetry in power, and the social contract strongly counsel you to be a lot better there than you are minimally required by law / contract.
A thing which aesthetically frustrates me is that a lot of the things I've heard companies do here serve *no legitimate business purpose.* In some cases it's getting tens of dollars of advantage. TENS! On an engineering candidate!
2/ I like secondary for entrepreneurs. Moderation is key but in a lot of situations I think it helps accelerate the co. Lots of very smart investors disagree. Here are my thoughts.
3/ Magnitude: My basic rule of thumb from what I see is market is 4+ yrs and up to 10% of founder’s equity stake with some $ cap that makes sense given stage etc. (typically <$10m)
4/ The entrepreneurial journey is brutally hard. Giving some financial relief helps remove one piece of pressure. I don’t think that secondary in the magnitude mentioned impacts the drive/persistence of great entrepreneurs.
5/ That secondary means they will be able to just sleep knowing they can pay their kids’ tuition. Secondary will make most founders better at their jobs, thus accelerating the co.
