Naman

In a world that is increasingly getting westernized, a need is felt more than ever to draw our children back into the sphere of Hindu 'samskaras'. Much as we want to, we cannot bring to our children the same spiritual experiences from our long gone childhood (going to temples, attending religious discourses, etc.). And yet we would like them to understand the basic concepts, beliefs & values of our religion; understand & learn certain age old mantras, shlokas & prayers that have held Hindu culture & society together for ages.

Naman includes all basic mantras for children or the mantras children should know. These are divided into different parts of the day ie. early morning when they chant the gayatri mantra etc., during the day which includes the saraswati vandana & gurur brahma (school time mantras), sunset & night prayers.

Making the child listen to this album & encouraging him/her to chant along is the easiest way a parent can initiate the child into spirituality, Indian culture & get him to learn the basic chants. These are popular mantras, which are chanted in every Hindu household & some schools also.
