Jnana Prabodhini – Institute offering course to become Hindu women priests

Jnana Prabodhini in Pune, Maharashtra, offers a one-year course which will train women to become priests (purohitas) and rituals associated with Hinduism. There is a great demand for female priests as many families and companies feel that they are more honest and patient in doing rituals and pujas. Another advantage is the communication skill of women priests. The course is strictly based on Vedic rituals. Nearly 19 pujas and sansakaras are taught as part of the one-year course. The response to the course is great and housewives and young women are joining the course. People from other profession are also joining the course. Jnana Prabodhini is located at 510, Sadashiv Peth, Pune and concentrates on education and rural development.

J Krishnamurti Thoughts

None of the agonies of suppression, nor the brutal discipline of conforming to a pattern has led to truth. To come upon truth the mind must be completely free, without a spot of distortion.If we know how to look at violence, not only outwardly in society – the wars, the riots, the national antagonisms and class conflicts – but also in ourselves, then perhaps we shall be able to go beyond it.Freedom is a state of mind – not freedom from something but a sense of freedom, a freedom to doubt and question everything and therefore so intense, active, and vigorous that it throws away every form of dependence, slavery, conformity and acceptance. Such freedom implies being completely alone.J Krishnamurti(Source - Freedom from the Known)
