I love this site. and regularly visit it. I loved this section too. My daughter 5 yr old had been grasping and chanting mantras since 1.5 yr old. she has just learnt geeta 6 shlokas -i was dumb struck to watch her learn so fast. the best part is she enjoys though she is young enough to know its meaning.

hello everybody, my daughter is 4 years old . I started sing gayatri mantra with her when she was so young . That time she used to listen and watch my lips without blinking her eyes . And from 2 years she started to chant gayatri mantra by herself .Now she chants very perfectly . Every night before going to sleep we both chant gayatri mantra and have a good sleep .

Here' s a great way to sing bhajans: get a small kareoke machine. I have an old one at home and play it in the evening. Children really like to sing along when they know that everyone is listening.

Subject:  Spiderman song is favorite mantra
For my children, they know only the tv themes to their favorite tv shows on Pogo. We pray together and they mimic the rtythm but no one really knows what the hymns mean. Perhaps that is the beauty of mantras in that they are perfect nonsense that bring utter peace.

Only grandmom knows proper mantras inmy house and she is dying. So there is no one left to pass her legacy

Even I enjoy mantras... The bliss of the Gayatri mantra cannot be compared to any other sound... One has to be sincere and devoted to the recitation of the Gayatri mantra for it to bring about fruits....

Subject:  language no bar
I love reciting or hearing anything in Sanskrit, irrespective of whether I understand it or not. There are so many French, Italian and Spanish songs that are immeasurably beautiful, yet the lyrics mean nothing to me. On Travel and Living, the other day I saw a program on Siberia. The fol song of the mountains- it was so beautiful that there were tears in my eyes. Music truly knows no langguage.
