Ārchik 3: Uttarārchik:
Prapāŧhak 1| Ardh 1:
Adhyāý 1| Tr’ch Sookt 1| Mantr 1
Upāsmai gāyatā narah pavmānāyéndavé.
Abhi dévāgvāng iyaxaté.
1Sing forth optimum, man, for the consecrating indu.
He respects divine ones as required.
1. R’shi: Asit M. Kāshyap or Déval.
Both the concepts are erroneous and not good for human society.
Hinduism does not believe that human beings are only social animals.
Of course, it believes in the principle that when born, the infants are not better than animals:
‘Vitishŧhantām māturasyā upasthānnānāroopā pashavo jāýmānāh.
Sumangalyup sīdémamagnim. sampatnī, pratibhhoshéh dévān.’
‘Let there come forth from the genital organ of this mother, animals of various forms, being born.
Well doing woman, sit by the man leading to light. Proper wife, ornamentize here the divine ones.’
Yet, it does classify the infants in two classes:
1. ‘pratibhhoshéh dévān’ ‘the divine ones.’
2. The ordinary human infants who don’t show any inclination towards divinity whatsoever.
The first type of children is entrusted to their mothers, whether the mothers are the followers of Ved or not.
This type of infants, therefore, can be safely entrusted to even such mothers.
However, as soon as she is a mother, a woman is required to change her heretofore-irresponsible attitude, and act well-doer, ‘Sumangalī’.
The second type of infants is ordered to be watched, with close scrutiny, by the Sukr’t father himself.
However, both types of children are instructed to follow the Sukr’t father only, not the mother.
She must be cared for not to be disheartened, however:
‘Anuvratah pituh putro, mātrā bhavatu sammanāh.
Jāyā patyé madhumatīm vācham vadatu shantivām.’
Moreover, if the sex is for sex only, i.e. for Animal
Pleasure, or for children, the human beings are not any different from animals.
The animals also do the same.
One can’t fight rationally and effectively against Niyog or incest if we accept such a concept.
Only the concept that the sex must be for the consecration of the human society, can cure both these evil social diseases.
