Sanskarshala is one of its kind monthly workshops that are organized for children aged 4 to 12 years by Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan’s Holistic education program Manthan-SVK. The theme for December month’s
Sanskarshala was ‘Vedic’ Sanskarshala.
A total of 46 workshops were conducted in the month of December which benefited 2539 children across India. Vedic Sanskarshalas were held in all India DJJS branches as well as in various schools namely, Jila Parishad Prathamik Shala (Z P primary School) in Ghodegaon, Pune, Z.P Secondary High School in Amravati, Maharashtra, Upasana Memorial Mayawati Higher Secondary School and Sarvodaya Vidya Mandir in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh.
This Vedic Sanskarshala started with the group recitation of Shukla Yajurvediya Rudrashtadhyayi by children and volunteers. Following the session, the Preachers asked children to name all the four Vedas, after which they explained that the Vedic culture is the baseline of our existence in this world. It was further revealed that the major inventions which are known to the world today were already invented by the various rishis in the Vedic era and were duly documented in the different Vedic scriptures. Few of them namely, the nuclear theory by Acharya Kanad, gravitational theory by Bhaskaracharya and the invention of Zero by Aryabhata.
Children were awestruck to witness the grandeur of our Vedic literature. Thereafter, to imbibe values in children, the volunteers with the help of various activities and presentations taught the children the daily routine as was being followed by our Vedic ancestors and students of Gurukul. These easy to follow and practical routine habits were duly celebrated by everyone.
The Volunteers also touched upon the importance of learning Vedic Mathematics through which one can solve complex mathematical problems in a nick of the moment and thus converting a human brain into a walking calculator.
Each session was highly interactive and catered practical ways for students to follow and instill Vedic habits into their daily routine. The program concluded with a quick question-answer round that helped children clear any doubts they had in any of the sessions. In the end, children thanked Divya Guru Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji for blessing them with the opportunity of learning the great and scientific Bhartiya Vedic tradition and revealing super-scientific theorems and ideologies in such interactive ways.
