Balasamskritam: Sanskrit for Children
Location: Society House
Childhood is the symbol of the future and the hope of all victories to come.
AuroBharati, Sri Aurobindo Society organized a three-day workshop on Bal Samskriti: Towards Creativity and Integral Development from 25th-27th May, 2023 at Sri Aurobindo Society, Pondicherry. Thirty students from the age group of 5-13 representing different schools of Puducherry participated in the workshop.
As part of the national workshop, Dr. Kishor Kumar Tripathy interacted with the students about the chanting of sacred mantras and its effect on the development of memory and concentration. Speaking on ‘mantra chanting’, he said that mantras can be recited in repetitions. When we chant the mantras with utmost devotion, we realize powerful vibrations within the body and mind. Chanting of the mantras can be used to evoke different states of consciousness to harness the power of intentions and a deeper state of awareness. The students practiced Gayatri Mantra during the session.
