Shri Pankaj Saxena has shed light on a very important, often discussed topic in the present talk. He discusses in detail the prerequisites and hardships of Vedic studies in ancient India and that being the main reason why these studies were passed on through families. These studies were highly specialized and required years of meticulous education under a Guru. But he disqualifies the myth that other communities were barred from attaining Vedic knowledge. It was natural for people to take up professions pursued by their families.
If any one was really keen on taking up a different profession they could go to a Guru as apprentice to learn the craft. It is an insightful talk about the Vedic education legacy in ancient India.
