CHILDREN & YOUTH PROGRAMS
For children aged between 5 and 10 years old, they are taught lessons from the Bhagavad Gita and about Krishna through interactive storytelling, playacting, reading aloud and singing. Morality, knowledge of the soul and our relationship with Krishna are just some of the many topics covered.
Currently takes place on Saturdays from 7:30pm to 8:30pm.
For pre-teen and teenagers (11 to 17 years old), we endeavour to teach the importance of making wise decisions by giving spiritual knowledge relevant to their lives through facilitated discussion, reading and drama.
Performing one's duty, giving one's life purpose, stress management, building and maintaining relationships and remaining focussed in life are just some of the many subject matters discussed.
Currently takes place on Saturdays from 6pm to 7pm.
MEET THE TEAM
My children, who are now teenagers, attended the Children's Program from a young age and benefitted immensely in making the sensible choices in life, learning proper etiquettes and having a foundation of Vedic knowledge. Having received so much, I feel obligated to give back to the next generation.
At other times, I am a full-time IT professional and mum.
Children's Program Teacher
The main purpose of running the Children's Program is to enlighten these young minds with the real knowledge of life. The Bhagavad Gita teaches us how to adapt this divine knowledge in our daily lives. I am making a humble attempt to pass this most needed knowledge to the next generation with the intention to built their strong foundation.
I am an HR manager by profession and a mum of two.
Youth Program Teacher
Sometimes as young people, we don't appreciate the value of guidance and learning until many years later. Just like most teenagers this was the same for me! I'd like to share some of my life experience knowing how important it is for young minds to explore, question, challenge, and find answers to life.
I am a parent of two teenagers myself, and a qualified youth worker. I have undertaken teacher training and have been encouraging learning in our ISKCON centre, in local schools, and colleges for over 20 years.

I like to join children's sanga because we are reading about "Shri Bhagavad Gita", as this is one of our Hindu religious books. It is written by our Guru Srila Prabhupada. We also listen about lots of stories from the Mahabharat. Maha means big. We also chant maha-mantra and pray to Lord Narasimhadeva.
I would like everyone to join Children's sanga and serve Lord Krishna.

Hare Krishna ,
I am very grateful to the ISKCON South London temple for conducting Children's Sanga every week. I started taking my son since he was 4.. Now he is 7. The association has helped him a lot to understand Srimad Bhagavad Gita. The sanga is so very accommodating to all age groups and the conductors of the Children Sanga are very knowledgeable and humble. It is very structured and the study of Srimad Bhagavad Gita is made fun and easy for children of all ages.
Now my second son who is 4 also enjoys the Children Sanga.
Along with children, even I am learning Srimad Bhagavad Gita .
Thanking all the organisers of the Sangha.
I and my children are very blessed to have this association.
Hare Krishna, Shilpa

Krishna is the Divine Paramatma.
Krishna is in our hearts.
Krishna is Vishnu, Govinda, Rama, Hari and is known by many other names.
I love Krishna,
Aaradhya Hemanth Kumar (age 7)
I attend Krishna club every Saturday evening at 7:30pm.
We chant Hare Krishna mantra at the beginning of each class.
I learnt that when our body dies our soul doesn't die and it passes to another body.
I am also learning about Krishna and Bhagavad Gita.
At the end of the lesson we sing Narasimha prayers.
I like Krishna club.

I like the youth sanga because it allows me to develop spiritually and remember God. I feel more connected with God during the sanga. The sanga allows me to learn more about Krishna and the Bhagavad Gita in a way that is engaging and fun. I also can find answers to my problems and questions thanks to the sanga.
In this painting I have painted Radha and Krishna at the paining workshop with Nitikha Aunty. I feel proud about this painting and it symbolises the eternal love between Radha and Krishna. The painting has also become an integral part of our home temple because of its divine beauty.
