Sanskarshala is one of its kind monthly workshops that are organized for children aged 4 to 12 years by Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan’s (DJJS) holistic education program Manthan Sampoorna Vikas Kendra (SVK). The theme for April month’s Sanskarshala was in collaboration with social initiative Sanrakshan – the nature conservation program of DJJS. In the month of April 2023, a total of 50 Sanrakshan Sanskarshalas were conducted which benefited more than 2000 children globally through DJJS branches as well as in various private and public schools namely, Swami Vivekanand School, Gorakhpur and Saraswati Shishu Mandir, Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh and Rajkiya Prathmik Vidyalaya, Pithoragarh, Uttarakhand, etc.
The workshop started with group chanting and meditation by children which filled the atmosphere with utmost divinity. The preacher of DJJS took over to explain the importance of keeping our Mother Earth conserved and safe and also to take necessary steps to repair the damage already caused to the environment. Preachers and volunteers helped students understand the value of water, and ways to use it conservatively with the help of quizzes, videos and activities like ‘happy earth vs sad earth.’ Students pledged to imbibe the good habits of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle and motivated to contribute to the environmental conservation by planting more trees. Further, the volunteers addressed all the questions put across by the children to ensure the sessions were interactive. Such workshops strive to bring about a sense of responsibility in children which leads to re-establishment of this fading human - nature relationship of mutualism. The workshops concluded with chanting shanti mantra and prayers. Everyone paid their humble salutations unto the lotus feet of Divya Guru Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji.
