CMP Bala Vihar® Grade 8A
Class 17 : Summary
RAW review: Covetousness - We discussed its ills and the destruction it can cause. We talked about developing opposite virtues of contentment, gratitude, charity, generosity, non-comparison etc to combat jealousy and envy and negative feelings within us.
Story: We had a very intense and dramatic episode of the dice game at Hastinapura ending in the exile of the Pandavas. We played a doodle cartoon video covering the events made by Epified. Please talk to your kids for their reactions related to today's class. They could be anywhere from disgusted to angry to sad to shocked. Yes, a lot of negativity!
Reflections: We had a thorough discussion and analysis that followed by the video. We analyzed roles and situations of each of these characters - Yudhishtira, Shakuni, Duryodhana, Dusshasana, Karna, Elders, Dhritarashtra, Draupadi and the 4 younger Pandavas. We will review and summarize conclusions from this episode next week.
RAW: Taking a stand: In any situation is it better to take a stand and stand by it or remain neutral? Is action better or inaction better? What will enable us to tell right from wrong? Try to relate with examples in your life or Current affairs in US etc.
Bhagavad Gita Chapter 12: We will learn to chant shlokas 14 & 15 in next class.
