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
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
