Charlene: Dear Sir/. Namaste. Read this page https://www.vedmandir.com/node/153 It states: (6) Atharvaveda mantra 4/38/1 – main qualities of wife:
(a) Should have conquered sensuality (b) hardworking (c) possessing best behaviour (d) striving to maintain home in best way. Where does one find this info in the Atharva Veda book? What am I doing wrong: I looked on sacred-texts.com for atharva veda http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/av/av04038.htm In book 4, hymm 38 did not not read like above. I must be looking in the wrong literature? Thank you so much.

Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you, my son. Aapko thekedaari ka jo offer mila hai, woh Ishwar kripa, Parmatma ne vedon mein manushya ko mehnut kee kamai karke adhik se adhik dhan uparjan karne kee shiksha dee hai. Isliye, aap us karya ko avashya karein aur grihasth ke liye adhik se adhik kamayein. Mera tumhein ashirwad.

Savdhani ek hee hai ki manushay lobh-laalach mein phansa kar illegal karya na karey aur apnee mehnut ke anusaar adhik se adhik dhan utpann karey. Iskee koi limit nahin hai. Jitnee mehnut utna hee ann-dhan.
