Krsna Consciousness is dormant in every one’s heart. When one comes in contact with Krishna devotees and takes their association it resurfaces (reawakens).
Srila Prabhupada said children can take to krsna consciousness easily. Prahlada Maharaj also says “koumara Achareti Prajno” one has to take to krsna consciousness right from the childhood.
Here at ISKCON, Rajahmundry we are encouraging children to become krsna consciousness by conducting Sunday school. We teach them the Stories of Lord Krishna about his incarnations,and the stories of Vaishnava saints. We teach verses (slokas) from Bhagavad Gita ,Bhagavatam Etc.,and to draw pictures from Krishna Lila’s.
At present 40 children are attending the Sunday school every Sunday conducted in temple premises .We accept Children from the age group of 6 to 15 years. We take a Nominal admission Fee of Rs.60/- per annum for material charges. The timings are 10:30am to 1:00pm. After the class prasadam is served to all Sunday school children.
We noticed from the Children who attend to Sunday classes that there is lot of changes in their behavior, attitude and in their consciousness, in their attitude to elders, in their interest towards Devotional Process. They are learning how to play Musical Instruments also.
