 Grihastha Ashram is a married life of a householder. According to Lord Manu happiness, wealth and respect prevail in that family where husband and wife respect each other. Where there is no respect the family suffers and no progress is made.
Householder has to work hard and earn money for the welfare of his family. He enjoys his life. If possible he should help the needy and do charitable work.

 Swami Dayanand Sarswati established Arya Samaj in Mumbai in 1875. He did not want to start a new religion or a new sect. The main purpose was to reveal the contents of the Vedas to the people of the world. After centuries of slavery the Indians had lost their identity and their culture. They wre oblivious of the Vedas. Swami Dayanand undertook the task of preaching the true knowledge of the Vedas to the masses.
The Ten Principles of Arya Samaj are for the welfare of humanity and for international brotherhood. Their application can bring about peace and prosperity in the world.
The 6th Principle of Arya Samaj states: “The prime object of Arya Samaj is to do good to the world: to ameliorate physical, spiritual and social conditions of all men” The people have to be physically fit to undertake various tasks.
All should worship one God. God has many names describing His attributes. God is Formless and therefore cannot be represented by idols. People should not accept blind faith or witchcraft. They should follow the dictates of the Vedas.
For social welfare it is important that both boys and girls receive education. There should not be any discrimination. It is evil to practise and believe in caste system. All human beings are equal and should not be discriminated against on the basis of their caste or colour of their skin. Child marriages should be avoided and remarriage of young widows should be encouraged.
Hindus all over the world should give up their petty differences and work as a united force for their communities and societies. This will bring about peace and happiness for all.

Panditji recited the 10th Principle of Arya Samaj and explained that “All men should subordinate their personal likings for the well being of the society. In matters affecting an individual he should enjoy the freedom of action,” If this Principle is observed by all there would be lasting peace in the world.
Hindus consider Poornima and Amavasaya as auspicious. Those with puranic views fast on these days. On Poornima people do havan and assume all their problems will be solved and there will be improvement in their lives. Plants bloom on poornima day and wilt on Amavasaya. Some people behave erratically on Poornima.

Mr Dharam Pal Shastri (from India)
Vedas are not against making money. Money is needed for personal enjoyment and for the welfare of the family. The money should be made by hard work and by honest means. Some of it should always be used to help the needy and for charitable purposes.
Money should never be made by dishonest or illegal means.Workers should never use corrupt practices to collect money and they should not accept bribery. The money which is collected by dishonest means is lost easily. It is true “easy come easy go”. Always avoid the temptation of making money by fraud or illegal means.
