Vaisnava Homeschoolers and Holistic Educators Yahoo Group

Vaisnava Homeschoolers and Holistic Educators (VHHE) is here to offer a means of communication between those who homeschool or have some interest in homeschooling and also happen to hold a common spiritual interest in Krishna Consciousness. Discussion is open to these and related topics.

Homeschooling can be considered just another word for living with and stewarding our children through life. May this list be a safe, connected, spiritual place where we can discuss our questions, views, and experiences.

Iskcon Chicago Sunday school for kids

"Every child, if given an impression of the Lord from his very childhood, certainly becomes a great devotee of the Lord like Maharaja Pariksit…Maharaja Pariksit also advised that such impressions of a Godly relation must be impregnated from the very beginning of childhood, otherwise one may miss the opportunity of the human form of life…" ------Srila Prabhupada in Srimad Bhagavatam 1.12.30, Purport

The Iskcon Chicago Sunday school comprises of many enthusiastic, wonderful children and their dedicated young teachers. The school exists to provide strong spiritual values to young children and to give them an opportunity to blossom into their natural mood of loving devotion to the Lord. Through a well-designed curriculum that balances learning and play, the children get to experience the richness and fullness of the Vedic Culture. The children learn the Science of God in many joyful and simple ways - chanting, hearing (the endless heroic pastimes of the Lord), and dancing. At the Sunday school, we believe that all children are blessed with natural inherent talents, which are uncovered when engaged in the service of the Lord.

Gokulam–Bhaktivedanta Children's Home: Sri Lanka

Gokulam – Bhaktivedanta Children’s Home is a refuge for needy children. We give them everything they need to succeed as good citizens of the world – food, shelter, medical care, a full education and the loving embrace of caring mothers.

Our children are victims of the civil war, poverty and the tsunami of 2004. However, at Gokulam, these traumatized children find solace in the awareness that they have a new and genuinely caring family.

There are eight caretakers, eight teachers, and two cooks employed at Gokulam. The staff provides all the care and attention each child needs, thus becoming their new family. According to Nandarani Devi, the founder of the Home, “Whatever the children have lost before, they can find it here.”

Gokulam is affiliated with Food for Life Global, which is constantly engaged in humanitarian work around the world and is based in Washington, D.C.

Bhaktivedanta International School

Ideally we are concerned with offering educational opportunities to those great souls in little bodies who can realize prema, pure love for Krishna, in their present birth.

The progressive stages of this education are based on the general guide of Prabhupada´s Nectar of Devotion. However, currently, we expect most of our students to be developing devotees who can use training in devotional techniques such as japa, kirtana, devotional music, worship of the deity and regular home and ashrama practices of bhakti yoga, but who will also need practical training in careers for their household life such as work the movie industry, travel and tour industry, printing industry etc.

Therefore we are offering a curriculum that is devotional, philosophical and practical, with hands-on experience with modern technology. The school and curriculum, with regular daily classes from 9AM to 1PM, Kindergarten to Sixth Grade, are fully accredited by the government of Peru so students can transfer with full credit to any Peruvian or compatible school system.

The curriculum also includes a strong program in dance, theater and communication skills, as well as many regular special events and travel. Students are trained in strong, healthy character development.

Beautiful Gopal - The story of the lifting of Sri Govarddhan Hill

Beautiful Gopal

Told in pictures and words

The story I tell is from times before ages long,
Of the bright Orient I sing this ancient song,
About Mount Govarddhan in distant India,
And a great deed done by a child named Gopal.

He held up that mountain like a huge umbrella
Over Vrindavan's tiny little village,
This was how he saved it from the wrath of Indra
Who poured down a torrent of a rainflood from the heavens.

ROOM CONVERSATION (November 5th, 1976 Vrndavana)

Gurukulas -- Where Students Aren't Merely Schooled

On a recent visit to India I visited two gurukulas -- schools that infuse the traditional values of Indian learning within a curriculum that combines the old and the new, the modern/scientific with age-old Indic wisdom and which promote a lifestyle that is at once simple, profound, and environmentally friendly. I was almost an 'accidental tourist', taken to these two gurukulas by a well-wisher whose insistence that I go with him I could not ignore. My experience visiting these places was such that I wished I had the opportunity, when young, to have had such schooling and to have lived and learnt in the manner youngsters that I met at the gurukula were doing.

Subramanya Tirtha

The gurukula boys of Sri Narasingha Caitanya Matha, along with their gurus, Srila B. G. Narasingha Maharaja and Swami B. B. Visnu recently visited the holy temple town of Subramanya, Daksina Kannada, Karnataka.
