Fourth graders create posters depicting “Symbols of Texas”. The Pecan tree, the Mockingbird, the state seal, the Bluebonnet, the motto “Friendship”, and the state flag are all symbols of Texas. After describing their symbol, what it means, and why they chose it, students connect it to Krsna consciousness. Kalyani Rao, 9, quotes Bhagavad-gita 9.26, “If one offers Me with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, a fruit or water, I will accept it.” She observes that when we see a bluebonnet, we can remember the blue of Krsna’s complexion.
