SUMMARY ATTENDANCE: 14
Prayers:

We began the class with three Om’s and our regular Shlokas: Vakratunda, Kara Charana, Gurur Brahma, and Sai Gayatri.

Main topic: Devotion

We discussed different instances and ways that one can show devotion to god.

 Activities-

  • We began by learning a new bhajan called Shiva Nataraj Dónde Estás. The lyrics are attached below:
Shiva Nataraj, ¿Dónde Estas?
En El Corazón De La Verdad [ Shiva Nataraj … ]
Baila Al Ritmo Del Tambor,
(Shiva) Ven Conmigo, O, Señor
Meaning: Shiva Nataraj, Where are you?
In the heart of truth
Dance to the rhythm of the drum
Come with me, Oh Shiva
  • We also watched three stories: Jonah and the Whale, Markandeya, and Sudhama. Each story portrayed a different type of devotion and each story showed how each individual showed their love for god.

  • We also played a game where each team picked a name of a God from a bag and they had to name three facts about that god, sing a bhajan, chant a prayer..etc about that god.

 Life application/Home work:

Make sure to record everyday: “What I have done today to show my love to God”
Daily night prayers and “Reflection”
Don’t forget to write down at least three good deeds for this week.

Note to Parents

Please help the children fill out this weeks activities: Day, date, reflection, and prayers. Assist them in writing what they have done today to show their love for God and their good deeds completed during the week. This can be done individually, or with the entire family, and this can become a beautiful family activity as well.
