ParentCircle

A part of the Hindu epic Mahabharata, the Bhagavad Gita is one of the most popular sacred scriptures of ancient India. It has learnings and insights for all age groups. 

Understanding the essence of Bhagavad Gita can inspire children and help them cultivate good values. Change is the law of life, the importance of thinking with a calm mind, practising tolerance and forgiveness etc. are some of the life lessons that this holy book teaches children.

According to Swami Mahamedhananda, editor of 'The Vedanta Kesari', a monthly cultural and spiritual magazine, published by Sri Ramakrishna Math, Chennai, “Children should be trained and encouraged to work in the garden, to plant trees, to conserve water and other natural resources, to not waste food, to recycle whatever can be reused and to dispose waste in a responsible way. Although these look like very small acts, they will teach our children to understand and respect their relationship with Nature. In whatever way, whatever work they do, they (children) should strive to give back more than what they receive. This is the spirit of sacrifice.”
