III ii Duties and Responsibilities AS Parents

4. Why is it necessary to encourage our children to learn about our culture and tradition?

Encourage learning about one's own culture and tradition : The children must also have reverence towards their religion, their culture, their educational attainments and their country. They must learn well their mother tongue, so that they can appreciate the great poetical works and epics written by the seers of their land. This will give them valuable guidance in the stormy days ahead. They must also develop a deep reverence for their' motherland, for Bhaarath is the most ancient as well as the wisest teacher of humanity and every, child born here has a great responsibility to know, respect and practise the teaching, which is so universal and so meaningful.
Sathya Sai Baba, 18 Apr 1966
You must cultivate respect for Bharat's ancient culture, follow its ideals and experience the joy to be derived therefrom.
