WHAT IS GFS?
GFS is a once a week program to train children in character building, personality development, ethical and spiritual values, mantra meditation, story-telling, devotional music and Sanskrit Shloka recitation. Thus we aim to help them become intelligent and responsible leaders of the family, the country and the world in the future.
WHY DOES MY CHILD NEED GFS?
Modern society has started discovering that human beings have not just physical needs, but also emotional and spiritual needs. In the western countries, parents have provided abundantly for the material needs of their children. Yet despite their best efforts, most parents are baffled and pained to see their children succumb to stress, depression, addiction, violence, delinquent behaviour and even suicide. Even if the children survive such unfortunate influences, when they grow up, often they have little respect for their parents and elders and they disregard ethical, moral and spiritual values that their parents cherish. Numerous surveys have confirmed that a child without a spiritual basis to his life easily falls prey to bad habits. A spiritually trained and guided child, on the other hand, is well equipped to counter harmful influences and confidently faces the stresses and tensions of modern life. Therefore, GFS aims to help responsible parents in raising their children by offering systematic and scientific training in spiritual culture and wisdom.
WILL THESE STUDIES NOT BURDEN MY CHILD FURTHER?
GFS adopts state of art techniques to make learning a joy. Teaching is done through a lively blend of art, craft and drawing, quizzes, assignments and worksheets, dramas and puppet shows, spiritual games and picnics and color slide/video shows. Bal-utsav (festivals for children) provides the children an opportunity to display their talents.
