The First Term in the Sahaja Kindergarten “Cool Breeze”

The first term in this academic year in the Sahaja Kindergarten “Cool breeze” has finished. The term has turned to be full of creativity. Everything started with a big sack of beautiful cloth of different types which was sent to us by Sahaja Yogis. When the sack was opened, the atmosphere was filled with a storm of creative ideas.

For the first autumn children’s party, marvelous costumes for kids (“September”, “October”, “November”, “mouse”, etc.) were ready. Then the turn of theatre puppets came. The puppets put on panjabis, saris and beautiful dresses. Then an idea came to make dolls for teaching. Their clothes (depicting different aspects of the chakras) became the material for Sahaja lessons. We had also got ideas for the performances about Deities: costumes of Deities were also made from the presented cloth. The children were very interested. Till the end of the term, they joyfully staged the stories and invented their own ones dressed in these costumes.

To make Shri Mataji happy!” she replies. “That is also true.” Says Mummy. “Of course. But you really meditate for yourself and nobody else, not even Mummy”. “But why?” Shanti asks. “Why do I need to meditate?” “Mummy takes a deep breath and looks at Shri Mataji’s  picture. After about a minute she turns to Shanti and says “Look. When we meditate, all the bad things in and around us run away. We can feel happy and light again. But meditation is so much more than just sitting here. If you imagine meditation being a huge beautiful mountain, we have properly not even reached the first step. But you know what the first step is?Continue reading “Shanti cannot sit still or The First Step”

The Seven Fairies

A Story to teach Sharing

The story is kept short and simple and can be retold with more details and beautiful wording by the Reader 🙂

Once upon a time, seven Fairy children lived in their small, pretty flower house with their Fairy mother and Fairy father. The children quarrelled a lot and did not enjoy sharing their toys at all.

One day, Fairy Mother returned from the forest and saw the children fight about their animal toys. Ada did not want to share her tiger, Aba his elephant, Dina her lion and so forth. Suddenly the mother had an idea. Continue reading “The Seven Fairies”
