We are working on this website, as a big project, to offer a one-stop-source for children services in our ISKCON world.
Everything that you would like to find for children in ISKCON will be here…
Not only do we create resources and material to add to the website but we also gather different resources from devotees and communities around the world.
You will find various kinds of fun activities for children, resources and training to prepare yourself for children services, and practical tools and support to set up children programs in your temple and/or congregations.
“That is the success of the movement, because younger generation, they are the flowers, the future hope of the country, of the world. If they take this movement seriously then the whole world will be happy.”
Chapter 2, Devotional Service to Krishna – to help you organise fun, spiritual get-togethers for your kids and their friends!
For this chapter, we have also added a bonus gift which is connected with these lesson plan series!
We are providing you with a dynamic presentation – SMART Spiritual Goals –as a practical strategy to improve our devotional lives and facilitate meaningful and spiritual interaction between the children.
Parents and teachers, don’t miss out on this valuable resource!
