Gauranga, The Dancing Lord – A Festival Kit

Hare Krishna dear parents and children!

We are excited to offer you a NEW festival kit about Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu.

I’m sure you all know that the Supreme Personality of Godhead came “undercover” in Kali yuga, taking the beautiful golden colour of Srimati Radharani and Her mood of separation from Krishna. In this incarnation He taught us how to be a devotee of Krishna and He gave freely love for Krishna to everyone!

Did you know He used to do many naughty things as a small boy? Or that He was a brilliant student? Find many interesting stories about Him and have fun doing all the activities prepared in this Festival Kit!

Teaching children has never been easier! We have everything all planned out for you!

Almost 2 years ago, on February 14th 2020, we published our first children’s activity book, Becoming Your Devotee. With 150+ interactive activities, this book immerses children in Krishna conscious-filled fun!

To go hand-in-hand with this book, we are providing a FREE step-by-step curriculum for parents, teachers and children program leaders to conduct spiritual classes with no planning required. 

So far we have published 39 LESSON PLANS which amounts to a minimum of 60 HOURS of Krishna conscious engagement for kids!

Gita Challenge

Gita Challenge – Day 1

Hare Krishna dear children!

Today our Gita Challenge starts with Chapter 1 of Bhagavad Gita As It Is by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Our commitment is to read all the Sanskrit Shlokas of Chapter 1. They have so much spiritual potency! If you feel inspired, you may also read the translation of each verse. Or you can read the summary of this chapter which we are attaching here.

Additionally, we will focus on Verse 1.1 as it is presented for children in “Bhagavad Gita, An Illustrated Introduction” by disciples and grand-disciples of A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

Check out the coloring page which will help you remember Today’s Verse. You can even try to memorize it.

During this month devotees go out and increase their efforts to spread the mercy by distributing transcendental knowledge through Srila Prabhupada’s books. It is called the Book Marathon. So, it would be really great to also be part of it by trying to give at least one book every day. You can gift it to your extended family or friends. Maybe together with you parents, approach someone in the park or on the street? Be sure to stay safe though!

Good luck in the Gita Challenge!
