It was even more of an issue then as opposed to now, since surgeons did not attend medical school and the overwhelming majority of physicians considered surgery a common craft beneath their professional station. For Maturin to know even the first thing about surgery, let alone undertake and succeed at half a dozen different procedures just in https://www.levitradosageus24.com/ viagra farmacia madrid online the first novel, is unusual in the extreme.

General Notes to Teachers:

 

 

Hindu Dharma Evolved in Bharat is one of the ancient surviving civilization of the world  with the continuity of culture, tradition and history.

 

Hindu is an unbounded word and symbolizes sanatan “  Eternal “

 

Dharma means that which sustains individual, family, community, Society ,Nation, Environment, living and non-living beings.

 

 

All the Hindus migrated from different countries and settled in Australia. We all have common forefathers and ancestors who lived in Bharat (India). The all share the history of the same land and in their holy books recognize Bharat as their motherland.(

Common mother land.  Sharing  the ancient Civilization)

 

The main philosophical ideas of all branches of Hindu Dharma  are based on the Vedic literature which contains ethical values.

 

Hindus and the Environment: How we promote peace and harmony in the society

While teaching the river slokas we need explain these things.

Hindus and in Hindu culture: Respect the environment.

Hindus care for and protect the environment.

The rivers - we call river as our mother - Ganga Maatha.

 

Hindus offer lights /lamps in the river and do namaskarams and do Aarti to the rivers.

 

This practice proves that Hindus treat the river as a person and not as an object.

Mountains – like Kailash,  . thiruvannamali

 

The whole universe is created by Bhagwan and everything has given to us.

In this world everything is holy and we respect each other.

 

We are all the same. The differences are to enjoy, create novelty in the world, like different colours of flowers in the garden.

 

Our motto "THE WHOLE UNIVERSE IS ONE BIG FAMILY"

 

Most of the time we need to take combined classes like k - year 2  and year 3 to 6

In these circumstances, please follow the curriculum

And general rule - K TO YEAR 2 - Ramayanam

 

YEAR 3 TO 6 Bhagavatam -all the classes Please go through the greatness of two authors, Rishi Veda Vyasa and Rishi Valmiki and their contributions to Hindu Culture and our literature.

Encourage the children to talk about various rishis in different language and the state (example Nayanmargal in Tamil Literature)Contributions of Hindus to the World.- Hindu rishis – Yoga , Ayurveda

Many forms of God

 

Every person is known by different names by different people.

Write a short story to explain why there are many forms of God.



Forms of God

God is one but He has many forms.

When he does the job of creating he is called                                              Brahma

When he does the job of preserving he is called                                          Vishnu

When he does the job of destroying evils he is called                                 Shiva

When he does the job of destroying obstacles he is called                          Vinayaka

When God (Goddess) imparts knowledge she is called                              Saraswathi

When she gives us wealth she is                                                                  Lakshmi

As God does so many jobs he cannot be fully defined. Total knowledge of God is beyond human understanding. So for this reason Hinduism allows use of various terms, names, symbols and images to allow people to discover God in whichever way they want to. This freedom of thought and form of worship is unique to Hinduism.

A man called Ramachandra Kulkarni may be called as Mr Kulkarni at work, Ramu by his siblings, Rama by his friends, Chandra by neighbors, Darling or sweetie pie by his parents, dad by his kids etc. He exhibits different qualities as he plays different role.

More ideas

You can start every lesson with few payers and few minutes of meditation. Asking the children to sit down on the floor, fold their legs, close their eyes and think of their favourite God is an easy start of the lesson.

Depending on the day, if the children are alert and eager to learn or restless, you can teach appropriate bhajan songs, dance etc

Children usually like to do things rather than listening long lectures / information dumping. So try to incorporate as many activities as possible in every lesson planning.

Story telling by the teachers or the children can also be made interesting if you show pictures and involve the children.

Teachers can go in Indian traditional clothes when teaching about festivals.

Make a Ganesha mask

make a Krishna mobile

Make a icon of ganesha using a mould.

Make a sweet for Lord Ganesha

Celebrate any festival in the school.

(you probably can involve the whole school, ask permission before doing so.)

teach slokas

teach any yoga

Cross word puzzles

word search

craft work

colouring in

games based on hindu theme.


 

 


Respect for Mother - Mathru Devo Bhava

 

In Hindu culture mother is worshipped and respected. Our respects are first due to our mother, then to father, afterwards to our teachers and finally to God.

Your mother loves you and all of us love our mother.

 

Year 1 and Year 2

 

What does your  mother do for you?

Write or draw pictures to show how does a mother takes care of her children from childhood.


Year 3 and 4

 

Instead of the previous activity talk about Mathru devo bhava and respect for mothers. Tell the story of Shravanakumar and discuss the following.

 

In Indian culture we treat anything that protect and feed us as mother.

Mother nature

 

 

 

 

Vedas are worshipped as Veda Mata – Mother Veda.

Vedas are called Shruti in Sanskrit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cow is worshipped as mother. It provides milk and is the source for all milk products such as cheese, yoghurt.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We respect the laws of the adapted country and worship it as mother country.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By worshipping the earth as mother, Hindus are aware of our environment and earth’s resources.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FORMS ARE MANY BUT GOD IS ONE

 

We as Hindus beliieve in God.  We believe that He is present everywhere. Like the air which is everywhere yet we cannot see it, god is present everywhere.

One God. Many Forms.

 

God is one, he performs different jobs and hence has many different names. The forms of God can be male, female, child or even nature.

WE as Hindus believe God. We believe that he is present everywhere. Like the air which is everywhere yet we cannot see it, god is present everywhere.

One can use the following words to describe God.

Creator: God is the creator of everything: universe. Living and non living things, animals and plants

Preserver: he looks after his creation - preserves the plants, animals and all living things.

Destroyer: Destroys evil. Omnipotent, all powerful

Omnipresent: He is everywhere and is present in all things at all times.

All knowing: God knows everything, he knows the universe.

Eternal: God is eternal, He has always been there and will always be there. He has no beginning and no end.

Perfect: God is perfect and pure,

Lovable and all bliss: God loves his creation. Whoever truly loves him and has faith in him gets his love and mercy.

Forgiving: god forgives our mistakes

Merciful: god is kind, merciful and loving

Friend: God is our friend, he is the best and true friend, he helps us in need and protects us.

You can visualize God any form you like and should pray with complete dedication.

 

What is your favorite form of God and Why?
