In a fast-paced, rapidly changing world, children struggle to cope with the sheer multiplicity of stimuli and expectations. It could get overwhelming for the still-developing minds of the young. How do we get them to pause for a moment? What will help them take on challenges calmly?
Swami Mukundananda explains that one way to create a positive environment is to introduce ancient Hindu verses in everyday life. Learning to recite the shlokas and mantras equips children with timeless wisdom that shapes their character.
My Wisdom Book draws on the timeless knowledge of scriptures to explain ancient Hindu wisdom in a fun, easy and entertaining way for beginners. The book is packed with 75 Sanskrit and Hindi verses, including transliterations in English, with explanations, and encourages kids to include the practice of reading and chanting into their daily lives.
Divided into two age-appropriate levels—Juniors (ages 3–9) and Seniors (age 10 upwards)—the book has separate sections for daily shlokas, mantras, simple bhajans and learnings for each level. Approachable and easy-to-understand, the text is designed to be read together with parents and grandparents by juniors, and by older kids on their own. Beautifully illustrated by Rayika Sen, this handy book is the perfect gift for festivals, religious ceremonies, birthdays, or indeed any time at all!
