पूर्वे वयसि यः शान्तः स शान्त इति मे मतिः ।
धातुषु क्षीयमाणेषु शमः कस्य न जायते ॥
– पञ्चतंत्र, मित्रभेद
“Only a person who is peaceful at young age can really be called as a ‘peace and calm’. What is the big deal in being calm and peaceful when your body has weakened?”
– Panchatantra, Mitrabheda
Whether your child goes to International School or Govt. School in slum of metro, State board, Central board, whatever; do introduce them gradually to Gita, Mahabharata, Ramayana, Purana. Don’t worry about bread-earning skills, they are easy to pick up!
Spiritually empty-bellied child is just little better than unfortunate Autistic child or malnourished child. Their miseries in later life would be unbearable for them as well as Society.
Train your child to seat with scriptures. Do not hamper their spiritual growth for the sake of your modern and atheist delusion.
To begin with, for 3-4 years old (Pre-KG), it is good idea to introduce Devas and Asuras concept to them by visual introduction to Hindu Deities, Asuras, Festivals through videos, art and crafts. Facilitate them to recognize basic patterns and conventions about deities. To not to disturb their short attention span, use more colors and visuals. Using visuals only. No chanting, no memorization.
To convert young chaotic mind into order is real achievement and not otherwise.
Don’t spare Gita for old age. It is very much a requirement of youth!
