As a small experiment of women’s uniqueness and the special bond between a mother and child, we met up with 6 wonderful women, and asked them to let us blindfold their most precious loved ones. Their children!
Gopisvari Dasi shares how her mother raised her and her siblings in the most beautiful way. She made each one of them feel included and valued. Because she was always happy even with very little to call her own and also in adverse situations they learned how to do the same! Watch as she shares wonderful nuggets of wisdom from how her own mother and other mothers from the movement included her and nurtured her in her life in Krishna Consciousness. Gopisvari Dasi grew up in the Hare Krishna movement and is currently a Pujari/Priest at the ISKCON of Washington DC temple
Radhika Dasi - a Gopi skirts maker is also a mother of 5 wonderful kids. She explains about her life, how she got married, who were her parents, how she manages her home and 5 kids, what she eats to remain beautiful and fit.
It is an odd development of the modern world that being excessively anxious about our children is considered a virtue. We consider ourselves good parents if we make life easy for them, reward them for the smallest achievement, and are anxious for their safety and well being at all times.
There always have been, and always will be great teachers who are women. There have always been all different kinds of people. And this is not only a function of modernity.
