[GHHF] Bala Samskar Kendras – Learning and practicing Surya Namaskar for concentration.

 The Indians are, at the same time, logical since they generally have a tendency to sublimate their thinking to the universal; they are at once logical and rationalistic. On the contrary, many religions of the West are irrational and illogical, and this is acknowledged by the Westerners themselves. For example, Albert Schweitzer, a pious and most devoted Christian, says, “Compared to the logical religions of Asia, the gospel of Jesus is illogical.” Hajime Nakamura (1912 - 1999)
Global Hindu Heritage is very happy to inform that we started about 200 Bala Samskar Kendras in five States in India – Assam, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Tamil Nadu - to teach about the richness of Hinduism, Hindu festivals, Hindu ethos, Hindu History, and culture and traditions. Sri Rajesh is a very active member in the community championing the Hindu Values not only to the children but also actively involved in making the Hindus proud of their culture.
Our Children are taught about the richness of our culture by teaching about various scriptures and the timeless wisdom found in them.  Our students will learn how Hindus conceive the abstract concept of God, their features, physical features, and the divine qualities. We talk about the characteristics of Lord Rama, the attributes and his behavior and the qualities that we can emulate. Many of our Gods are incarnated at different times and we try to explain about different Avataras and the purpose of incarnating at a particular time.
What is Bala Samskar?
Our children are our strength. They are our future. They are going to be our Ambassadors to Hindu Dharma in preserving, protecting, and propagating our ancient civilization. For centuries, we as Hindus failed to transmit the knowledge to the next generations. With no knowledge about our faith and with no pride in the universality and non-violence of Sanatana Dharma, our children, as well as adults, have become targets for Christians to convert. They have used a plethora of deceptive tactics to woo our Hindus to Christianity as we are not able to defend our religion and also not able to question the barbaric nature of the Bible. We have become defenseless and not equipped with any knowledge about our heritage.

Why Surya Namaskar Asanas.
According to Sage Sushrutha ( Master of Ayurveda), health is defined as
 "sama dosha sama agni scha sama dhatu mala kriyaaha|
Prasanna atma indriya manaha swastha iti abhidheeyate"
Translation: One is in perfect health when the Three doshas (vata, pitta and Kapha), metabolic fire (digestion, assimilation and transformation), all the bodily tissues & components (the entire physical body) all the excretory functions ( urination, sweat, and defecation) are in perfect order with a pleasantly disposed and contented mind, senses and spirit.
There are twelve Asanas one is taught standing in front of sun in the morning wherever it is possible, It can be done other times facing east. Ten minutes of doing Surya Namaskar would have dramatic effect in various aspects of one’s life. We all know that without sun, there is no life. Sun radiates energy and heat, without which there is no life. 

Why Children?
We all know that child is unable to concentrate on academics. While reading about the parts of a flower and understanding the composition of water, the mind keeps slipping away for a little walk.
They are Pranayama, Hastauttanasana, Padhastaasana, Ashwa Sanchalanasana, Parvtasana, Dandasana, Ashtanga Namaskar, Bhujangasana, Parvatasana, Ashwa Sanchalanasana, Padasastasan, Hastauttanasa.
“Regular practice of Suryanamaskar ensures proper and efficient functioning of not only the muscles and joints of the body but also stimulates the internal organs. Especially the stomach and other abdominal organs as it involves alternative stretching and compression at the abdominal area. Suryanamaskar also improves peristalsis of the intestines, stimulates blood circulation throughout the body, massages, and tones up kidneys so that wastes are efficiently eliminated from the body at ease, and helps the body to eliminate toxins through increased perspiration.” (Venkatesh and Vandana)
