October 23, 2011 BSK Session

Hari Om!
  Here is what was covered in the BSK session of  Sunday, October 23, 2011:

 

IPrayer & Yoga : This session involves regular mantra and shloka recitation by everyone, followed by a 30 minute yoga session.

 

IILanguage Class:

  •  Since we didn't have enough Gujarati students around,  we didn't have a separate language session last week . 
  •  However, we had a generic session for both the groups, where in, we discussed about the life of "Mahatma Gandhi" and some basic facts as :

                        :-  He is called "Father of  the Nation" (Indian Nation) / राष्ट्र पिता 
                        :-  His basic principles:      
                                         1. Truth / सत्य

                                         2. Nonviolence / अहिंसा

 

       Then we had a generic discussion on "violence" / हिंसा  and whether or not we follow "nonviolence" all the times.  We talked about a very abstract categorization on "violence" as:

                                                        1. Physical

                                               2. Verbal

                                               3. Mental (violence of thought)

  • Kids were then told an instance of Mahatma Gandhi's such behaviour as follows :  

                                 An English man gave Gandhi ji some papers (that had curses written for him) pinned together.

                       Gandhiji kept the "pin" quoting it to be "the most valuable part" of the English man's publication and returned the papers without even reading the content.

 

III. Noon Sandhya Session:

            -  Meditation for older kids and 'Saaraswatya Mantra" japa for all the kids

 

IV. Special Topic for younger kids:

            -  Some new yoga "Mudras" and the revision of whatever "mudras" were discussed earlier

 

V. Shrimad Bhagavad Geeta  (for older kids) : -

                 
        In this session, we discussed about the verses 1 to15  of Chapter 2 - "Saankhya Yoga" / सांख्य योग , which talks about  how Lord Krishna instructs Arjuna to get over his grief and sorrow that he had because of the "attachment" to his own blood relations.

 

       We plan to resume "Mahabharata" sessions starting next Sunday and "Bhagavad Geeta" discussions would be only for the kids who would be interested and are matured enough to understand the discussion.

 

Om!
