Reflection on Sankara Charithram – Shankara Jayanthi Video Submission Information
1.The part I like the most from Sankara Charithram- Oral Presentation Children may talk about an incident from Sankara Charithram they like the most. They can read from prepared notes. (approx 10 – 12 sentences, 1-2 minutes max).
2.Children can also share a drawing/painting of their favorite scene from Sankara Charithram and talk about it.
3. Children can recite any Adi Shankara Shloka taught in the shloka sessions- Totakashtakam, Guru Shlokas ,Sharada Bhujangam, Swasti Vachanam or Kamakshi Stotram. Children should start by saying a few lines about Sri Adi Shankara and recite the shloka.
Make a video with your presentation. Dress up traditionally and record your presentation.( Make the Video wide screen holding the phone horizontally – so it appears full screen when uploaded to YOUTUBE) . Send the videos by May 5 through whatsapp or email to email@example.com

AUDIO & VIDEO RESOURCES
In this session, we will learn the fundamentals of our Dharma, Life Histories (Divya Charithram) of our Gurus, Acharyas and great Saints who are guiding us to follow the right path. We will hear Stories of Deities. We will also learn some episodes from our Puranas and the life lessons they teach us. Primarily they will be referencing Deivathin Kural. By continuous listening of such noble thoughts, we will get a perspective about our great heritage. Remember, we hail from a great lineage. It is a privilege to learn about our roots.
