Prajna for kids

The ability to translate good knowledge into action

Prajna is a series of personality development classes conducted for the benefit of children and adults under the guidance of His Holiness Sri Sri Sri Tridandi Chinna Sri:manna:ra:yana Ra:ma:nuja Jeeyar Swa:mi:ji:. Students will be learning about our ancient heritage and will thus develop to love the same.

Vedic knowledge and culture so preciously preserved for millions of years is being lost in this modern era. We have forgotten the significance and importance of our customs and traditions. What is the goal of the human life? What should one realize in this life? What should be one’s response in our daily chores? Due to the lack of answers to these questions there is confusion in the society, leading to unrest, lack of confidence and disrespect for the traditional way of living.

In spite of our rich, valuable and true vedic knowledge, we often tend to disown and distance from it due to ignorance and misinformation. Hence only a true A:cha:rya can dispel this darkness by lighting a lamp of right vedic knowledge in our hearts. Sri: Swa:mi:ji has taken up this task of educating and reforming us so that we will be able to lead our lives in a fruitful way.

Come, let us all join this movement. A person who gets benefited in this process, can lead others too in the proper direction thus empowering the entire society at large.
