Srila Prabhupada speaks on daily schedule of students

"I am very glad to learn that you are enthusiastic to teach the children. Most of your questions I have answered as above to Satsvarupa. Simply follow the program of the elders, let the children associate as much as possible with the routine KC program, and when the others go out for working and business matters, the children can be given classes as you describe. They can learn our method of Krishna Consciousness by rising early, cleansing, plus knowledge of Sanskrit, English, a little Mathematics, history,geography."
Letter to Aniruddha - Calcutta 7, March, 1972

Note :-

  • 1. We take them out to visit temples on everySunday. At least 2 times in a year we take them on a tour to holy places.
  • 2.The children are being fed sumptuously milk, fruits, fresh food etc. and also have free time to play.
  • 3. They have no burden of studying nonsense subjects like Physics, biology etc, giving complicated examinations, mugging up big-big books so that they can happily execute devotional service to Krishna.
  • 4. In hot summer months of May and June these children will be shifted to Uttranchal with their teachers. It will be like a spiritual picnic for them as this place is amidst hills and rivers with pleasant climate.
