“Indian students should value their religious culture and of course, the classical Indian culture bears importantly on the meaning of life and values. I would not separate the two. To separate science and Indian culture would be harmful. …I don't think it is practical to keep scientific and spiritual culture separate.” Charles H. Townes.
Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is extremely happy to inform that we are organizing about 200 Bala Samskar Kendras in eight different States in Bharat and Bangladesh. Over the last week they have organized several activities including learning the importance of chanting Lingashtakam.   
Teachers are helping them to chant properly. Most of the teachers taught the students to chant Lingashtakam.
Learning Lingashtaka Stotram.
All the students in most of the centers are learning to chant Lingashtakam. Teachers require them to learn by heart to make sure that the children chant Lingashtakam without looking at the book.

The Lingashtakam Stotram is a prayer formed of eight salutations or invocations offered to the Supreme Deity in his aspect as Linga. Linga is the universal symbol of creation and source of everything. This prayer glorifies the Shiva Linga and details its greatness. Each stanza lists the God’s glory and the benefits of worshipping the Shiva Linga. It states that the Linga is worshipped by Vishnu and Brahma as well. Always filled with peace, it destroys any suffering caused by the cycle of birth and rebirth.
Shiva Lingashtakam is a prayer offered to Lord Shiva in the form of Linga (meaning symbol in Sanskrit).  The prayer is a declaration of faith, obedience, loyalty, and devotion towards Lord Shiva. Shivalinga is a symbolic representation of the creation of the Universe from the eternal play of Shiva and Shakti. Shiva Lingashtakam lists Lord Shiva’s glories and the benefits of worshipping the Shivalinga. 
The holy month of Shravan (fifth month of the Hindu Calendar) is an auspicious time to offer prayers to Lord Shiva. Shiva Lingashtakam is chanted during the Shiva Puja that is performed every day during this month. Devotees chant this hymn early in the morning or in the evening, preferably during sunrise and sunset, while performing Shiva Puja in front of a Shivalinga or while remembering Lord Shiva.
Chanting the Lingashtakam, or Shiva Lingashtakam, is said to have many benefits, including:
•    Peace of mind
•    Protection from negative energy, evils, and negative thoughts
•    Good health, prosperity, and wisdom
•    Positivity, confidence, and willpower
