The Might of Prayer

Our knowledge about the subject of God is almost nil and whatever little does exist is incorrect. Henceforth, we are unable to save our children from myths and hypocrisy. However, it has been noted that every individual does believe in God in some way or the other. So, wouldn’t it be better to have the correct knowledge about Him so that our kids can also benefit from it?   What does it mean to attain God? It is actually nothing but the inculcation of the divine qualities of God inside

Just one chance

A key point to achieve success in life is to recognize the opportunity. During one’s lifetime, everyone is faced with several opportunities to uplift one’s life. But we fail to recognize them and being unable to catch them at the right time, we miss the chance of gaining anything out of those opportunities. However, if we remain careful and attentive, there’s no reason why those opportunities can’t prove useful to us. But, for this, we have to concentrate and contemplate minutely. Many o

The Limit of Wealth

Earn something that will go with you, something that will help you in the time of need.Today, money is considered not as a means but as an end. This is the reason we’re crazy about it. We seem to have forgotten that money is for us and not vice versa. We have to become masters of wealth, not slaves. If you earn with a hundred hands, give it away to the needy with a thousand.   A person, seeing lots of leaves and bits of scrap strewn on the road in the marketplace, picks them up, brushe

What Are Our Children Reading

Today’s education system has turned it focus towards literacy. To reach out to parents and children in creative ways, innovative schools have initiated the trend of literacy nights and reading clubs. Librarians are putting all of their efforts to arrange authors’ visits to their schools to promote the reading habits of their students. To some extent all these efforts are helping children to divert their attention from computers, video games, Wii and Play Station to reading books.   T

Teaching is Doing, Not Saying

When I was a school going kid, a hilarious incident happened, that still resonates in my mind. Our home was often visited by spiritual preachers and learned scholars. I remember that one of them used to give examples about how harmful a refrigerator is for one’s health. Once on his visit, when my father asked him why he was not touching upon the topic this time, he smiled and replied that this time he can not say anything against a refrigerator as it won’t leave the same impact because he re

Socially Fit Kids

Science, Mathematics and History are important for kids to learn, but as parents, one of our primary responsibilities is to focus on children’s social skills as well. No matter what phase of life kids are in, they will always need to interact with the society. Learning self-control, getting along with others, giving appropriate reactions to various social situations, following etiquette and even choosing friends—are skills that children will need to use anyway. So why not take an active ro

TAKING RESPONSIBILITY

A major problem in households these days is the lack of attention being given to children by over-occupied parents. Despite their desire to give their children their best, parents are unable to spend quality time with kids and help them deal with the issues of life. They have compromised with themselves and try to find satisfaction in earning more money to make their children’s lives more comfortable and to leave them enough resources. On the other hand, modern philosophers of today are pr

POSITIVE ATTITUDE

Have you ever given a thought about the way you think?Have a look at the following situations :Your husband is away on his job. He is getting late to return from his place of work. He fails to inform you about his getting late. He is otherwise very punctual. In case he gets delayed, he never forgets to inform you. Today he is late and there is no information. You are worried. Very natural ! You try to contact him but you find no connection or clue. You begin to think of accidents and a lot more.

AVOID COMPARISON

We should try to develop our natural potentials. In the heat of high ambition and great expectation, one leaves aside one’s own qualities and starts copying others, wanting to outshine them. Not satisfied with just this, one wishes to let others down. Consequently, one remains in a constant mental tumult. As a consequence thereof, the mind wanders away from the place where one is physically present and no use ever comes out of having the mind at a place where there is physical absence. What i

THE JOY OF CONTENTMENT

The wealth of emperors and kings, treasures and jewels – all seem dull in the presence of the luminosity and richness of the wealth of contentment.No other joy is as precious as that of contentment. The peace and happiness found in the lives of people who are the proud owners of the wealth of contentment is lacking in those who run after money, name, fame and other worldly pursuits. The more they get, the more they want. Fulfillment of one want generates another.There is no respite in their fu

RIGHT PLACE

If you place all objects at their assigned places, you will notice that your children will also place them at that very place. Then you will find a unique peace and order in the home. At the approach of schooltime, there will be no desperate shouts of‘where is that book’,‘where is my pen’,‘where is my school bag’, etc. School uniforms and lunch boxes — all will be handy.Placing things at the right place requires an effort and habit that changes the scenario of the entire life.

SMILE

May joy illuminate the visage!Let smiling be your nature. It is a divine quality. The portraits of great men are generally depicted smiling. One smiling face at home can diminish the sadness of all others. Looking at your merry visage, the whole family will glow with happiness. When you start remaining happy, your mind becomes clear and illuminated and you become capable of taking the right decision. Why ?—because you are cool and calm. You can take any situation in a positive way. You are abl

TARGET

If today you are unhappy with the way things are going, or if you think that you have not been able to achieve what you wanted, then let me tell you the reason behind this. The reason is that you did not decide a target for yourself when the time was ripe. If you happen to stand by a road and ask a passer-by where he is heading for, he will immediately give the name and complete address of his destination. But strange though it is, on the road of life, you are unaware of where you have to go. Y

RESTRAINT

Restraint is control over desires. Desires are innumerable but broadly they have been grouped into three categories :Desire for offspringDesire for money Desire for fame.It has been observed that even distinguished people such as great sages who have won over the desires of offspring and money fall prey to the desire for fame in the end. So it needs great care to steer our desires in the right direction.The first point to be understood is that the mind is an inanimate object. Just as a car is in

SELF-INTROSPECTION

Self-introspection is an essential nutrient required for the blossoming of the shoots of life. But this nutrient has to be used regularly,for long and with devotion. This practice requires that just before going to bed you recall all your activities– big or small– of the entire day. Don’t ignore even the one that looks trifle. You have to minutely appraise your behavior. For example :Did you behave inappropriately with somebody?Did your behavior hurt anyone?Did you remain in a state of a

RESPECTFULNESS

A child makes his first ever relation with his parents. Caring for parents is the basis of a healthy family. It is said in the scriptures, “May the son conform to the father’s resolutions and principles.” It is the duty of a son to take his father’s work ahead and in a better way. He should thus save him from any further burden.Father’s place is immensely important. In a famous conversation between Yaksh and Yudhishthir (the eldest of the five Paandavs in the epic of Mahaabhaarat), the

COMPANIONSHIP

We never develop companionship with our children even when they are around the age of sixteen— the age that requires friendly attitude.We expect a lot from them and these multiplying expectations prevent us from being real friends to them – the kind of friends they cherish and long for.It is all on account of these expectations that we tend to have a criticizing attitude towards them, of course for their betterment and bright future. And in the process we begin to nourish a notion that we sh

UNDERSTANDING

It has been observed that parents always have a lot of expectations from their children. For instance, they have clear-cut conceptions about the child’s activities prior to going to school, at school and after returning home. They want the child to unfailingly follow specific patterns of activities at bed-time and in the morning.Why ?— so that they can rise. Rise where ?—in worldly life of course— in earning more and more money. But prior to such expectations I implore all parents to ask
