Rama Navami Entries: Children's Creations and Online Sessions

10:32:00 PM By Hladini gopika devi dasi

As Rama Navami approaches this Thursday, the students at Krishna Funskool are engaging in interactive activities daily! They are currently learning the Nama Ramayana, a prayer composed of 108 names of Lord Rama that describes His various qualities and pastimes from the Ramayana. 

The classes began last Friday, March 27 and will be completed on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Lord Rama on April 2, 2020. As you can see below, these are going on in full swing with over 30 participants daily! These sessions are facilitated via beautiful visuals and translation of these prayers by our beloved teachers. 

Also see below submissions sent in by our very talented children. A gentle reminder, if you would like to send your child's work, please continue to send pictures everyday by 9pm. And watch this space for daily updates!

Working on the Ramayana theme will help your child understand the pastimes of Lord Rama better and spend more time in being spiritually connected. Click here for resources and guidelines.
