Apr 23, 2012 INDIA (SUN) The following video is for the pleasure of the devotees. The boy featured in the video is five years old and he is home-schooled. Just to inspire other devotes in bringing in exalted children and the benefits of Krsna Conscious education, I have included some quotes from Srila Prabhupada taken from the Vedabase:
"Therefore education of Krsna consciousness should be given from the very childhood, kaumara. Kaumara means from the age of fifth year up to the tenth year. This is called kaumāra age. So we have opened our school in Texas. We are training very nicely all these children, and they are very learned. Children, as you teach them, they learn. They are innocent."
"So if a boy is taught... Just like our these children are being taught chanting Hare Kṛnṇa. They are chanting. They cannot forget throughout life."
"Śucīnām means very pure family, brāhmaṇa family, Vainṇava family. Just like these children. They have taken birth now in the Vainṇava family. Father is Vainṇava, mother is Vainṇava. And they are taken care of. So very exalted life. From the very beginning of life, they are chanting Hare Kṛnṇa mantra, they are dancing, they are taking prasādam. The atmosphere is so congenial for spiritual life. They are getting chance. So this is a chance. These children are not ordinary children.
This is first-class opportunity. If you take your birth in the house of Vaiṣṇava brāhmaṇa, just like these children are taking birth, father and mother Vaiṣṇava... They are very fortunate. They are not ordinary children. Otherwise they would not have gotten this chance of chanting and dancing before Deity and Vaiṣṇava. They are not ordinary children. The parent must take care, very good care, that they may not fall down. They have got the chance. Now train them to complete this Kṛṣṇa consciousness. That is the duty of father and mother."
