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
Religion needs to be of the present. Mankind is evolving spiritually; mass consciousness is rising. When we go to the temple, in the right spirit, contributing devotion and prana, being open to the blessings of the Deity; it purifies the mind. The Hindu religion focuses on the mind; purifies it; controls it, subdues the ego, makes us more humble.
