“The religions and philosophies of the East distilled a sublimity of thought scarce attained in the West; the wonderful Indian system of Yoga, the Gnani Yoga of Wisdom, Raja Yoga of Mind, Hatha Yoga of Body, Bhakti Yoga of Love, Karma Yoga of Work, developed a discipline millennia ago blending mysticism with daily life, showing Man’s relation to the Universe incarnating ever upwards to perfection to Union with God;  this supreme and beneficent teaching now exercising widening influence in our Western world must surely have sprung from civilizations long vanished …”  
Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is extremely happy to inform that we are conducting about 200 Bala Samskar Kendras in five States in India – Assam, Telangana, Andhra, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. We have many active Hindus who are helping in different ways to ensure our children are taught about the richness of Sanatana Dharma. Each school is teaching different things and at the same time they follow the required syllabus to ensue all the students learn things that are common to all the students. It is challenging as the ages of the students varied from one school to another.
Chanting Slokas
Chanting morning slokas bring immense benefits. One of the slokas they chant when they get up in the morning may decide the as to how the day may go. It is believed that the first thing you see on waking up determines how good or bad your day will be. Our palms are said to have the presence of three Goddesses. Lakshmi(Goddess of prosperity) lives in the tip of the palm, Saraswathi(Goddess of knowledge and power) lives in its middle, and Gowri(Goddess of life) lives at its base. Hence, as soon as you wake up you are supposed to see your palm and recite the following mantra.
Karagre  vasathu  Lakshmi, Karamadhye Saraswathi,
Karamoole sthitha Gowri, Prabhate Kaa Darshanam.
Scientific Evidence of chanting Slokas
1)    Chanting can sharpen the intellect. The brain requires more oxygen than any other organ of the body. Chanting mantras help infuse more oxygen. Since chanting requires deep breathing, it brings more oxygen into the heart.
2)    Chanting can hep in healing. he rhythmic up-and-down vibration created by chanting shlokas creates a melodious effect in the body known as the Neuro-linguistic effect (NLE). The Neuro-linguistic effect on the body is possible even if the person chanting does not know the meaning of the shloka. Another effect is the Psycho-linguistic effect (PLE), which occurs when one knows the meaning of what one is chanting.
3)    Chanting can help in stress management. Chanting shlokas daily lowers blood pressure, normalizes heart beat rate, brain wave pattern, and adrenalin levels, and even reduces high cholesterol levels. Doctors observing these health benefits advise their patients to chant shlokas daily. For those unable to chant, doctors advise listening to shlokas being chanted, as this, too, can have a positive effect on the body.
4)    Chanting can energize the brain. Researchers have discovered that thought-energy waves created by the chanting process can help energize the brain. At any given point, the human mind has myriad vibrations riding in and through the subconscious mind. On the other hand, the chanting process starts a powerful vibration that begins to override all the other smaller vibrations.
This ultimately begins to calm the brain, which in turn is energized. “This is the reason why our ancestors used to get up early and start the day with the purifying power of shlokas,” says noted singer, composer, and Indian film music director Shankar Mahadevan. “Chanting, being a part of their daily ritual, kept their body, mind, and soul healthy.” (Source: guriji.life)
