Paramhansa Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda offer much advise on the right approach to raising children.

‘The parents are encouraged, to approach raising children in the spirit of helping them to learn their lessons and develop positive qualities. They are cautioned against imposing their own material desires and worldly expectations on the child.”

“Spiritual Sunday for Children,” attunes to the teachings of our Gurus and prepares lessons on the positive qualities and shares with  children . These aspects help them to face the challenges of living as a human being and helps them to achieve balance and harmony in all they do, and thus helps to spiritualize the whole family life.   For queries, call Sujata at +91 98102 54677, or gurusgracejoy@gmail.com.

Children are given homework to keep their consciousness raised. A plant to nurture, with love. A gratitude box, to fill with blessings, A gift of forgiveness to, to empower them to live in peace and joy.

They are taken to the temple for aarti and blessings at the end of the session.  This teaches them a simple way of expressing devotion outwardly. They feel connected to the souls attending the Satsang and they are happy to see their parents being a part of their Spiritual Sunday’s.

Please join us this Sunday, 27th May, 9:45 – 11:00 am. This week we’ll be learning about the ennobling spirit of “Service/Seva.”

“The state of freedom from action (that is, of eternal rest in the Spirit)

Cannot be achieved without action. No one by mere renunciation and outward non-involvement, can attain perfection.” (Bhagavad Gita 3.4)
