Can shlokas really be fun?

Sanskrit shlokas are nuggets of ancient wisdom — beautiful and timeless.

The old school way of teaching shlokas is to have kids memorize the lines and then parrot them back.

How do you think today's kids like that?

You guessed it… they find it instantly boring, uncool, and tune out.

So, back to Coco Melon then?

No no… wait! There's a better way.

A journey so fun and engaging that children fall in utter love with mantras and their essence!

Over 5000 kids and their parents have experienced “Shlokas Made Fun.” Here is some of what they have to say.

Ancient wisdom not taught in schools!

My son absolutely loved it! Priya and Varsha have turned something that might seem complicated and boring for kids into a super fun and engaging experience. I'm thrilled to have found this. Our kids deserve to learn about our ancient wisdom, which unfortunately is not taught in schools.

Hemali, Kabir's mother , from Singapore

The stories even got me hooked!

Intricate stuff made super engaging! I wasn't sure how my daughter would like it, and to my surprise, she absolutely fell in love with the content. Priya and Varsha's delivery left her wanting more. She now recites the Shlokas every day. The best part are the stories, which even got me hooked.

Priyanka, Riddhi's mother , from India

Screen time well spent!

Dharaa remained glued to the screen throughout the course. She has learnt important values like honesty, caring for others, and being there for friends through shlokas. Everything was simple to follow yet super fascinating! As a parent I feel that this was screen time well spent.

Neha, Dharaa's mother , from India

She feels proud to be Indian!

Neha has always been curious about Indian culture. This course made her feel proud to be Indian. She still chants the shlokas she learned months ago and asks interesting questions about our Gods and Goddesses. We are exploring the answers together. Would highly recommend this course to all parents!

Jayashree, Neha's mother , from Australia

A modern appraoch to ancient traditions!

Your creative use of games and stories to explain the shloka and make it relevant was excellent. You've brought a part of our culture into their lives, even though we live outside of India. The modernized approach made it interesting while keeping its essence intact.

Surabhi Seth, Vihaan and Dhriti's mother , from Singapore

A perfect blend of laughter and learning!

Before the course, Rishi used to recite the shlokas with me like a chore, but now there's a noticeable change in his energy. This learning experience is unique with its incorporation of stories and activities. There's a perfect blend of laughter and learning throughout.

Richa, Rishi's Mother , from Australia

Great company on long journeys!

Nyra enjoyed the stories and the love and enthusiasm with which they were narrated. The beautiful depiction of the shlokas with hand gestures linked to classical Indian dance made the shlokas enjoyable and easy to recollect. The modules keep us great company when we travel long distances.

How is this course different from other shloka courses?
Most shloka courses are often too complex for kids to understand and enjoy and are designed for adults.
This course is designed specifically for kids. It is fun, engaging, and easy to follow. It is also the only course that teaches shlokas through mudras, along with fascinating stories, fun activities, and beautiful art projects.
Won't this course add to my child's screen time?

Instead of spending hours on just video games and cartoons, we're giving you a meaningful alternative. The videos in the course are super fun, often with interesting tasks, and make for excellent family bonding time! The printable task sheets will further ensure kids are kept busy creatively off-screen.
Why can't I just learn and teach shlokas from Google or YouTube?
You can try, but it will be a very fragmented experience. You will have to search for shlokas and stories separately, and invent your own activities. You will also have to sift through a lot of content that is not suitable for kids.
