Re: [JainList] Re: Welcome to jainlist
- Jai Jinendra, Dear Manishji!
You've got grounded principies on education.
Children must be introduced to the fundaments of
Religion at the very begining of their lives. Natural
wits will blossom up more easily in a home ambience of
Right Faith... I must tell you that since my childhood
I always have got a good practicioning on foreign
languages - since I am brazillian, I speak portuguese,
but English, French and tinctures of japanese came
soon in sequence.
I say to you that a Right Faith it's the main
component of such a intellectual concotion . It
doesn't matter how do you stuff your head in, but the
path your Jiva foots on from ajiva to Moksha ( that
untangible goal!)... and the Right Faith takes you by
hand on it.
And I am a good practicioner on oriental
languages too - Prabhupada's Gita had gave me the
first lights on devanagari, and the few lessons on
Hindi I've picked up on Net showed me that Hindi is
grammatically much more easy that classical Sanskrit
or Paali... but Gujarati... Goodness!... It's a bit
difficult to grab in!!!
Well, that's my personal viewpoint on this matter
- with my MSC ending in a good way ( my Msc
dissertation was a HIT!) I will finally have time to
spend in my favourite studies.
( And that money order of yours I didn't forget,
Manishiji! With my affairs at last not so muddled with
mundane tracts I will mail it as soon as possible.
Good luck for you and your son - may he be the
happiest human being in the world!)
always in Ahimsa,
Icaro dos santos Franca, BSc, MSC
