Krishna Katha Results

Shri Krishna Katha Contest – Season II – Results

In accordance with the desire of His Holiness Vidyadeesha Teertha Shripadangalavaru, Tattwa Samshodhana Samsat had organized Krishna katha – an online story telling competition for children this year too. This competition would enable both the children and the parents to completely immerse in the glorious life of Krishna briefly. Such involvement which would bestow auspiciousness upon all the members of the family was the purport. The competition this year received over 400 videos of children sent in by parents in 7 different languages. Excluding the videos that did not comply with any of the rules of the competition, the remaining 320 videos were considered for evaluation. From Udupi to Germany, participation has been widespread. Our heartfelt congratulations to all the parents who encouraged their children. Although it is the children who have narrated the story, the parents are the truly deserving recipients of this certificate of appreciation.

There are some points that need to be stated honestly. Several parents have recorded their child’s video in haste with the thought that it would be ‘hard if the deadline is over’, several others has given a book to the children to learn by heart and some others have forgone sobriety. Let this not be the case. If you narrate something about Krishna every day, the child would automatically pick the essence and inculcate it into life. The child would grow up to be your great reward that nobody can take away. This is our expectation.

The best story narrator would presented a silver tulasi mala or coral mala offered to Shri Krishna. May this prize brighten the future of the child. May the child learn to engage in Shri Krishna japa and meditation at this age itself and grow as a precious gem furthering the growth of our nation. A certificate of appreciation signed by His Holiness will be sent via email to all the participants. May all the children be bestowed with the grace of Shri Krihna Mukhyaprana.  May the children participate in the competition next year with even greater potential.

Several have asked why the competition was not conducted in English. Our reply to that is here.

This was an effort to promote mother tongue and culture. We wish that the languages spoken from ancient times in our homes revel on the tongues of the children. It is not our say that just by narrating a story the child would turn into a linguistic scholar or a protector of culture but relentless nourishment of the seeds sown today by the parents would enable our tradition to flow into the future generations of our children too. This is our aspiration. Thus, the contest was restricted to Indian languages for Indian nationals residing in the country and abroad.

This initiative has been successful due to the efforts of several Krishna devotees who have volunteered. Around 24 volunteers who are involved in cultural programs have evaluated the videos. May the service of the volunteers be accepted by Shri Krishna Mukhyaprana and Gurugalu and shower them with grace.
