स्त्रीशूद्रद्विजबन्धूनां श्रेयस्करार्थं इतिहासपुराणश्रवणं प्रोक्तं , तेषां
वेदाध्ययनं अनिष्टप्राप्तिहेतुरित्यपि प्रोक्तं शास्त्रकृद्भिः । द्विजः यत्
वेदाध्ययनेन लभते तदेव स्त्रीशूद्रद्विजबन्धवः लभन्ते इतिहासपुराणश्रवणेन।
Not only Sudras but also women and Dvija Bandhus must get Jnana from
Itihasa and Purana only. Nowadays Dvija Bandhus are very very very common.
They are born in Dvija families but they are not doing Sandhyavandana not
doing Vedic study and so on. They are Dvijas in name only. They have lost
the right to study Vedas. Many of them will give lecture on Upanishad
subjects but it is all a big waste. They should restrict themselves to
Geeta and Advaita philosophy explained in Puranas and Itihasa.
