They say, it takes a village to raise a child. Parenting is an art that can be learnt through first hand experience, but even better through wisdom of the learned. One such learned parent who raised two ideal children is Her Grace Aruddha Mataji. A student and practitioner of the Srimad Bhagavatam, Aruddha Mataji is renowned over the world for practicing and teaching the Art of Krishna Conscious parenting. She raised her two sons by teaching them The Srimad Bhagavatam. Her successful parenting is evident from the fact that both her sons completed school at the age of 12, and their Ph.D from Oxford University at the age of 21.
We at ISKCON Punjabi were delighted to have HG Aruddha Mataji host a session for parents – of today and the future. Attended by several devotees, the seminar was divided into 3 nourishing sections – Holy home, Acute academics, Spiritual skills. Parents left feeling encouraged, nourished and prepared for practical parenting – The Bhagavatam way.
