The teachings of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, also popularly known as the Hare Krishna movement, founded by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada are telling us that there is more to life than just material struggle for existence. Actually the Supreme Lord, Krishna is explaining that the spiritual aspect of life is even more important than the material, although material side should not be neglected. Both, material and spiritual life should go hand in hand and thus one can attain ultimate happiness and the topmost benefit of human form of life.It is the best if education starts at the young age, therefore, we have started the Hare Krishna Pre-school inviting parents who would like their children to develop spiritual values to take advantage of this opportunity.The purpose of this education is to give children knowledge obtained in other pre-schools, but supported with spiritual values, which will in many ways benefit them throughout their lives. The ancient scriptures of eternal wisdom, the Vedas, explain that the actual purpose of education is to develop good character.
Some of the qualities one develops through this system of education are, as mentioned in Bhagavad-Gita:
* purification of one’s existence
* cultivation of spiritual knowledge
* performance of sacrifice
* study of the Vedas
* freedom from anger
* aversion to faultfinding
* compassion for all living entities
* freedom from covetousness
* steady determination
* freedom from envy and from the passion for honor
* approaching a bona fide spiritual master
* self-control; renunciation of the objects of sense gratification
* absence of false ego
* accepting the importance of self-realization
* and philosophical search for the Absolute Truth.
Education based on spiritual values ensures happy life for an individual and also contributes toward peace, happiness and general well-being of one’s family and the society in large.
