Ganesha for Children

A daily routine is absolutely necessary to bring radical change in body, mind, and consciousness. A regular Routine (Dinacharya) helps to establish balance in one’s constitution. It also regularizes a person’s biological clock making him alert, receptive, cognitive and intelligent.

All parents, without exception, want their children to be “Super healthy and Super intelligent”. A Vedic Dinacharya (Regular Daily routine) goes a long way in achieving this. It also helps children cope up with the day to day stress, healthily deal with competition and help resist unwanted temptations.

Given hereunder is the “ideal” Dinacharya. On may not be able to fully practice all the rules every day, but attempting to practice as many as possible will also give great benefits.

Worship should be a part of the Dinacharya. There are several options like Chanting, performing abhishek, doing Aarti or just taking On-Line Darshan. One can adapt whatever one feels most comfortable doing and gives pleasure satisfaction. We will delve in it separately.

In here we will give most of the options of worship possible. Our deity is Lord Ganesh or Shree Siddhivinayak to be more precise.


Whenever possible, try to reach home at least an hour before sunset. After reaching home, if possible have a warm bath and wear clean, light and loose clothes that are comfortable. Light up the entire home and worship Lord Ganesh. Thank HIM for the wonderful gift of life and for rewarding you with a gift of “today”. Light incense and make the entire home energised.

Spend some quality time with members of your family. Avoid arguments or discussions of unpleasant topics.

         Have your dinner early, as close to the Sunset as possible.
Have a light, warm dinner before sunset or at least 3 hours before bedtime. This allows complete digestion of food and blood circulation to return to normal which is essential for sound sleep. A light walk in cool, green and quiet surrounding clams the mind and helps relieve stress and strain of the day. Spend some time watching television or listening to music before retiring.
Get off the Television, laptop computer and other electronic devices at least 30 minutes before bedtime.

         Say a Prayer before Leaving the Bedtime
“Dear God, you are inside of me, within my very breath, within each bird, each mighty mountain.
Your sweet touch reaches everything and I am well protected.
Thank you God for this beautiful day before me.
May joy, love, peace and compassion be part of my life and all those around me on this day.I am healing and I am healed.” After this prayer touch the ground with your right hand, then the same hand to the forehead, with great love and respect to Mother Earth.

         Sleep Early
Apply thin good quality oil to the head, palms and soles of the feet. Put one drop each of the oil in the ears and plug them with soft sterile cotton. Apply moisturiser to the face. Your bedroom should be at about 240C and lightly breezy. Use eye shades if light from other rooms disturbs your sleep. If you like, you can play light soothing music like “Vedic Nidra”. You can also cover your forehead and ears which improves sleep. The quality of sleep from the time you fall asleep till 12 midnight is twice as relaxing, from midnight till 5 am, once as relaxing and 5 am onwards only half as relaxing. For example: If you fall asleep at 9.30 pm then from 9.30 pm till 12 midnight you get 2.5x2=5 equivalent hours of sleep. If you decide to wake up at 4.30 am, then you will get another 4.5 hours of sleep making it a total of 9.5 hours of sleep which is more than adequate for a healthy child.  On the other hand if you sleep at 11.30 pm then till 12 midnight you will get only 0.5x2=1 equivalent of hours of sleep. Even if you wake up well past 9 am, you will still not get a full 9.5 hours of sleep.

         Wake Up Early in the Morning
It is good to wake up before the sun rises, when there are loving (sattvic) qualities in nature that bring peace of mind and freshness to the senses. Sunrise varies according to the seasons, but on average vata people should get up between 4.30 am and  6 a.m. Right after waking, look at your hands for a few moments, then gently move them over your face and chest down to the waist. This cleans the aura aids digestion, absorption and assimilation, and generates self-esteem, discipline, peace, happiness, and longevity. Say the following prayer as you do this process:

“Karagrey vasate Laxmi, Karamadhye Saraswati, Karamuley tu Govinda,
prabhate Karadarshanam.

Samudra vasanne Devi, parvata stana mandale, Vishnu patni
namostubhyam, paada sparsha kshamswamay."

Touch the floor and perform a brief “Namaskar Mudra” facing the East, North-East-North, West, South and finally East again.

         Clean the Face, Mouth, and Eyes
Splash your face with cold water and rinse out your mouth. Wash your eyes with cool water (or one of the eye washes mentioned below) and massage the eyelids by gently rubbing them. Blink your eyes 7 times and rotate your eyes in all directions. Dry your face with a clean towel.

         Scrape your Tongue
Gently scrape the tongue from the back forward, until you have scraped the whole surface for 7-14 strokes. This stimulates the internal organs, helps digestion, and removes dead bacteria. Stainless steel can be used by all people.

         Clean your Teeth
Always use a soft toothbrush and an astringent, pungent, and bitter toothpaste or powder.

To strengthen teeth, gums, and jaw, improve the voice and remove wrinkles from cheeks, gargle twice a day with warm sesame oil. Hold the oil in your mouth, swish it around vigorously, then spit it out and gently massage the gums with a finger.

Chewing a handful of sesame seeds helps receding gums and strengthens teeth. Alternatively, chew 3-5 dried dates and an inch of dried coconut meat. Chewing in the morning stimulates the liver and the stomach and improves digestive fire. After chewing, brush the teeth again without using toothpaste or powder.

         Drink Water in the Morning
Then drink a glass of room temperature water, preferably from a pure copper cup filled the night before. This washes the GI track, flushes the kidneys, and stimulates peristalsis. It is not a good idea to start the day with tea or coffee, as this drains kidney energy, stresses the adrenals, causes constipation, and is habit-forming.
