Std VIII - JYSEP Camp 2020-21 - Spirit of Faith
Posted November 02, 2020

O Son of Being! Thou art My lamp and My light is in thee.

The students of standard VIII are meeting virtually this week for a junior youth spiritual empowerment camp of the book Spirit of Faith that aims at helping the junior youth learn more about the purpose of their existence as spiritual beings in conjunction with the natural world around them and encourages them to think about the purpose of physical reality in a spiritual and scientific way. Understanding the myriad concepts of physical and spiritual reality and using them into becoming better human beings brought an enthusiastic approach into the hearts of the junior youth.

 

The study of lesson 1 was combined with the activity of making identity cards that revealed their true identity and helped them comprehend their inner powers and abilities which lie as a hidden treasure within them. It helps them realise not to be careless of the virtues which they have been endowed and neither be neglectful of their high destiny.

 

The junior youth embarked on the second day of the Class 8 camp based on the book “Spirit of Faith “with unparalleled vigour and enthusiasm. They were on a journey to gather knowledge about the higher nature and lower nature of every substance around them that belonged to the material, animal and human kingdom. They understood that man alone is endowed with a free will that allows them to choose between right and wrong. Animals are captives of their own desires and instinct but man has been created to carry forward an ever advancing civilisation. The junior youth were able to assimilate the importance of creating good in society in order to fight the evil prevalent around them.

 

The activity of drawing a candle that symbolises the Light of God which helps to remove the darkness from the world was met with immense creativity and beautiful examples of the glowing candles filled the virtual atmosphere with colour and light. The junior youth also memorised the quotations with sincerity that would help them to overcome any obstacles in their path towards being the sum of all perfections. " Love is light in whatsoever house it may shine and enmity is darkness in whatsoever abode it dwell.”

 

The junior youth understood from the book Spirit of Faith Lesson 3, two very interesting concepts and made crafts based on these two.

 

....there is a frame. On this frame, parallel strands of yarn are stretched tightly from one end to the other. The weaver uses a variety of yarns of different colors to weave through these strands and create a pattern. One of the early believers heard ‘Abdu’l-Bahá saying that we are like weavers. We have been given the frame and the strands. We have also been given the yarns to weave with, which you could say are all the talents and powers we are born with. This is our fate. But we choose the design that is to be woven on the loom. We have freedom over our actions. Each action creates a small part of the pattern. The complete work is who we grow up to be. Through free will and volition we develop the powers and talents God has bestowed upon us.” God has given us different capacities. Somebody may be good at biology, while someone else may have a talent for music. But we all have been given what is necessary to develop as noble beings. It is not correct, therefore, to blame fate for our shortcomings. When we do that, we stop trying to improve ourselves."

 

God is aiding us all the time. He never leaves us alone. It is like a sailing boat; the power to move comes from the wind and not from the boat itself. But it is the captain who uses the wind to take the boat to its destination. All power comes from God. Without His aid we are powerless. When we only look at ourselves, all we see is weakness. But when we turn to God and implore His aid and assistance, we find the strength to do what is pleasing to Him.

Such extremely interesting affinities created a unique curiosity in the young minds and helped them seek their true purpose of existence.

 

On 2nd October a day to commemorate the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation the junior youth along with their parents assembled for a virtual gathering to display their learning during the week that they had so diligently spent to enhance their understanding into attaining perfection in life. The parents joyfully watched the youth chant prayers ,quote Holy Writings, sing melodious songs, narrate soulful poemsand express perceptive thoughts on the content of the book Spirit of Faith studied by them. The parents were blessed to witness the learning’s of their child and the intense understanding of various concepts like nobility, two natures of the human being, free will ,destiny, the power of the intellect, evolution and finally the Spirit of Faith which gives meaning to everything. With joyful essence each parent witnessed these junior youth put forward profound ideas that would help them navigate their life with the guidance provided by God’s heavily spirit.

 

On the last day, the Junior Youth engaged themselves in an activity of making a bird that signifies humanity its two wings that are men and women. Without these two wings, humanity is not possible. It illumines their knowledge to dissipate the darkness of superstition and prejudice from the heartand minds prevailing in society today. Human spirit alone, no matter how much we develop, cannot make us of anything more than an intelligent species. It is through belief in God and His Manifestations that we become aware of our nobility, become convinced that we are spiritual beings —God’s lamps, God’s dominion and His treasury, saplings which He has planted with the hand of Loving kindness. They learnt that the Spirit of Faith opens our eyes and gives us a special wisdom, the wisdom to see the material and spiritual rewards that come from obeying God’s teachings and the sad consequences of disobedience.

 

‘The Spirit of Faith is the flame of reality, the life of humanity and the cause of eternal illumination. It inspires man to attain the virtues and perfections of the divine world.’

Peace Celebration - My Home is the Home of Peace...
Posted October22, 2020

Peace-building over the long term requires the transformation of society, a transformation based on justice, involving education for all, the alleviation of poverty and the abandonment of deeply rooted prejudices.

Bahá’í International Community, 1993 Mar 15, Women Peace Process

The endearing students of the Primary Section were regaled by the profound concept of Peace Education on September 21, 2020, with a charming and unique celebration held on a virtual platform. This day which is also celebrated as the International Day of Peace or World Peace Day, found the young ones dressed in their best finery, meeting each other with a spirit of oneness and bubbling with exuberance. Each class had their own way of celebrating peace, replete with wonderful moments when the children displayed their inner beauty by hugging their younger siblings, sharing a bowl of popcorn and juice and swaying to melodious tunes. In their frilly frocks, they appeared like little elves who could beat the best dancers in the world! It was also heartwarming to see them stand up and sing soulfully in a synchronised manner even though they were participating virtually!

On this occasion, the black boards of all the classes were decorated with beautiful drawings, posters, and craft work. A discussion was held on Mr. Tim Rost's contribution to peace classes in the school and why peace is consequential to the entire humanity. Various topics such as Good Listening and Not- Listening, Active Listening with Empathy, Inner and Outer Peace were discussed at length to promote better understanding of the concept amongst the young minds.

The children who are new to the school also become aware of Peace Education and its importance. The golden rule “We should treat others as we ourselves would wish to be treated” was explained and memorized. Quotations were explained, such as, 'We should have good thoughts, good words and good deeds to be peaceful' as well as “O SON OF BEING! Bring thyself to account each day ere thou art summoned to a reckoning; for death, unheralded, shall come upon thee and thou shalt be called to give account for thy deeds”. The children sang and danced to the tune of songs such as ‘Love Your Fellowmen’..., ‘Love, Unity and Peace’, and “Be a fountain...”. They also drew different pictures related to the concept of Peace,depicting the emotions : Sorry, Sad, Angry and Happy; images portraying peace and resolution of conflicts; symbolic pictures of doves, of their own families leading peaceful lives and that of the World Peace Day. They made creatively decorated take away cards with quotations to be gifted to their families. The game ‘Simon Says’ added to the joie de vivre of the event. A video enunciating the importance of a peaceful life brought home the concept further to the minds of the children.

The young orators won all hearts by sharing what peace meant to them. While some said that peace meant that all the members of the family lived together while others opined that peace was achieved when all family members prayed together. They expressed that they should not hurt anyone, should make use of the Magic/Golden Words, must help their parents/ elders and obey them. A thoughtful child expressed that the best way to bring peace was to be polite with everyone.

The celebration was concluded with a feeling of harmony making the children feel elevated and strengthened in their resolve to bring peace to this ravaged world.
