Rashmi, one of SoulCentre’s Meditation Teachers, was recently interviewed and asked a question about meditation for children at SoulCentre. We would like to share her thoughts with you.
"Children are our future leaders. We send our children to schools for academia, to learn sports, languages, essentially with the idea for them to excel in the world.
With stress levels going up in academic performance, an increase in instances of children being bullied and peer pressure, it is even more critical in today’s world for the children to understand the power of thoughts.
Meditation is an essential life-skill as it teaches the science behind the ancient wisdom and gives the tools to empower oneself from within.
We are so focused on the outer world that we forget the need to master the inner world.
Mediation helps build focus and enables the child to see and direct their own thoughts.
Once the children are equipped with the skill of Meditation, they become calmer and happier.
Children are then capable of designing their own blue prints and to go out and lead the world.”
Thanks Rashmi, there truly is no greater gift for a child than being able to manage their thoughts and emotions and thus lead a happy and successful life.
