Krishna Krishna Everywhere – 4th Grade

Meera Nair & Rajashree Kanungo

4th Grade Class 2018

In 4th grade, we continue the study of Srimad Bhagavatam that was started in grade 3, by exploring chapters 10 and 11 of the ancient book.

Chapter 10 of Srimad Bhagavatam is about the Krishna avatar. In “Krishna Krishna Everywhere”, we learn stories from the life of Lord Krishna, starting from His birth, to the time He fulfills a prophecy by killing the tyrant Kamsa. Through the stories of Lord Krishna’s childhood, we learn the values that will bring us closer to Him. These values, like kindness, forgiveness, sharing etc., will be useful throughout our lives, and will be what makes our lives easier and happier.

“My Twenty-Four Teachers” is based on the 11th chapter of Srimad Bhagavatam. We find out that anyone and anything can be a teacher, as long as we have humility and the right attitude to learn. Who we are and what we know is because of our teachers, and we are indebted to them.

We also learned to chant the “Govinda Damodara Stotram”.
