Samvaada is a dialogue which allows a flow of meaning among us,

a flow of love and connection between parents and children,

a flow of connection and encouragement between fellow parents, 

a flow of Dharma between contributing members of society. 

Samvaada enriches our lives.

14 SHINE teachers who are actively conducting classes for children both offline and online mode have reached out to 172 children from 4 countries – India, USA, UK, Trinidad & Tobago. These children can tell you why Dharma is the secret of all superheroes, can chant shlokas, learn from Ramayana and Mahabharata, speak about their Iṣṭa devata-s, tell you about temples, celebrate festivals and have fun while doing all of this!
In the coming year, we will reach out to 300 children through an additional 10 teachers and make Dharma SHINE even brighter.

It gives the SHINE teachers great joy to see the way the children have gained an insight into Sanatana Dharma – appreciating everything as Ishvara, understanding dharma, and enjoying the beauty of our festivals. It is inspiring to see them have a subtle impact on their parents’ lives, too. To date, 14 teachers have reached out to 141 children and we aim to reach out to 750 children, contributing to India’s 75th year of Independence.

As a part of honouring our relationships with the five connections (Pancha Maha Yajnas), in the quarter of April to June 2022, we focused on doing our yajna towards the ‘Bhuta-s’. We celebrated the World Environment Day on June 5th. Our plan in this 75th year of India’s Independence – 750 children (6-12 years) across Bharat and overseas will learn and live Sanatana Dharma in their every day lives. Hence, we are looking for SHINE teachers (Tejasvis) who will join us in making our dream a reality.
