Story time for Kids

Mahatma Gandhi, Vivekananda, Tyagaraja, and Jhansi Rani believed in our culture and practiced Sanatana dharma. Telling stories of
personalities like those make our kids understand what our religion and culture is about and the philosophy they believed in. Stories of nature, god and goddess can take them closer to the culture, which is practical, religion, which is logical, and philosophy, which is universal.
Kids can benefit from attending story time. It increases their capacity to concentrate, to be curious, & creative just by listening.
Have your kids tell or listen to story every Saturday.

Sanatan Sanskriti

Sanatan Sanskriti was established 24 years ago with an aim to teach, encourage and nurture strong faith in the rich intellectual and devotional tradition of Hinduism, to develop pride in the heritage and culture of Hinduism, and to provide the knowledge and skills necessary to respect and appreciate different cultures, while at the same time maintaining a steadfast devotion and a quiet unassailable faith in our own religion.

The key word that guides our activities is “SAT” we use it not only for its great significance in Hinduism, but also an acronym for Spirituality, Affirmation and Tranquility.

Our aim is to teach the eternal values and skills necessary for a life of dharma, bhakti, shraddha and prema.
