The goal of our educational system is to inspire our children to become devotees of Krsna, while living in this world like perfect, responsible ladies and gentlemen. We see such example in the life of Radhika Raman Prabhu, who, along with his younger brother, was homeschooled by his mother, Aruddha Mataji. Their story is a success story and thus we invited them to share it with us.
Their seminar was inspiring and gave us a sense of recommitting ourselves to the standards established by Srila Prabhupada. The home environment, saturated with spiritual practices, while minimizing other distractions, is so essential and beneficial for attaining our desired goal. They urged us to forgo the excessive use of electronics and instead, invest our time studying the Srimad Bhagavatam with our children. They spoke about the importance of including children in outreach; in presenting Krsna consciousness and sharing it with others.
The seminar they presented in the temple room was followed the next day by additional Questions and Answers session for the benefit of our parents, as part of our Orientation Meeting. One parent wrote: “I wanted to thank you for the visit of Radhika Raman Prabhu and his mother. Amazing advice, association, etc. Great start to the new year.”
