Sri Sudhakarji guided them on how they could organize and conduct classes for children within a limited time of one and a half hour, which would include all aspects of development- physical, mental, spiritual, intellectual and patriotic zeal in a child. Teaching of daily prayers,song, exercises, and games practice, summing up by Didi,  formed part of the workshop. The Workshop concluded at 1.30 p.m. withShanti mantra.

SAMSKAR VARGA PRASHIKSHAN  SHIBIR


     'Be and Make', is one of the well-known sutras of Swami Vivekananda. What can be a more relevant message for the budding Samskarvarg teachers who are given training or prashikshan to train the kids in and around their locality, in  inculcating good samskaras,  which would help to build up their all round personalities.

     A three day nonresidential Samskaravarg Shibir was conducted from 28th April to 30th April,by Vivekananda Vedic Vision Foundation at Anandadham, under the able guidance of our resource persons and also jeevanvrati karyakartas,- Sushree Lalita Didi, Sushree Sumitra, Sri Raghuji and under the overall support and guidance of Mananeeya Lakshmi Didi. 17 children from the age group of 11years  to 18 years and 3 mothers from 8 localities in and around Kodungallur, were trained. From 9 a.m. to  3.30 p.m everyday, they were trained in different skills like  art of story telling, based on Indian Cultural values like Satya, Tyaga,Seva etc, Slogans or ghosas, Agnyas or commands for disciplining the Varga,and many games through which they could develop their life skills both physically and mentally. 
      Dr Ashalatha BJP Counsellor of the 41st ward of Kodungallur town was the Chief Guest for the concluding session. She spoke to the children and their parents as to the importance of good samskaras . 'Though it was the concluding of the camp,yet  it was just the beginning because this handful of children could make a mark in the society by spreading Swamiji's message to the nook and corners of Kodungallur' said Mananeeya Lakshmi Didi in her ashirvachanam.
