Last week, we incorporated story telling into our religious class…The title of the story told was "How Our Family Became Vegetarians Again" based on the Ten Tales About Self-Control By Satguru Bodhinatha
I acted out some of the scenes in the story to excite and arouse the little students' enthusiam…
Even little poorna who was colouring her "Lord Ganesha" stopped to join the story telling session….
The kids really enjoyed the story…I ended the story telling them the importance of being a vegetarian -- Ahimsa -Non-violence
Dharma is religious patterns which when followed promote the wellbeing of the individual, the family and society. Patterns so that the soul matures and gets closer to God, closer to realizing the Divinity within. Dharma is: "The orderly fulfillment of an inherent nature or destiny," working on instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Destiny is fixed: Realization. Personal dharma, "your own perfect pattern in life", is different for the sannyasin and the householder.
