Raising Teenagers

The cause of fall down of teenagers:

As we all know amply that the teenagers are full of enthusiasm and energy all the time that it’s more or less misdirected and misemployed in many ways in this technological era in the form of watching porn, racing bike, excessive mobile phone usage, drug addiction etc…

Reason:

This is mainly because teenagers always want of enjoyment derived from all the walks of life be it eating, sleeping, drinking , watching etc. This is the basic instinct of all the souls because the soul is sat-cit-ananda by nature. This is also confirmed by a modern psychiatrist who says that all the living entities are always pleasured seeking entities..

The best way to mitigate these bad habits:

One should employ his own time and energy in something useful and creative deeds.

Keeping this in mind we have started Prahlad garden for kids, sadhu sanga retreat for teenagers especially college going students. Moreover the environment in the temple is designed in such a way that anybody visits the temple will have a serene atmosphere all the time, partly because of “satva guna” inculcated and partly because of effect of “dham” the pilgrimage sites.

Result:

As the hither and thither running mind of teenagers cools down as a result of a number of useful techniques like chanting on beeds, reading pastimes of inspirational personalities, the productivity naturally increases which in turn has good results on academic performance, and better-shaped communications with parents.

What does Bhagavad Gita has to say:

viṣayā vinivartante
nirāhārasya dehinaḥ
rasa-varjaṁ raso ‘py asya
paraṁ dṛṣṭvā nivartate

ch:2; verse no:59;

“The embodied soul may be restricted from sense enjoyment, though the taste for sense objects remains. But, ceasing such engagements by experiencing a higher taste, he is fixed in consciousness.” This higher taste for replacing lower taste will be provided in the temple naturally in many ways. For more experience visit our temple programs at least on weekends.
