Dear Sri Krishna:
Thanks very  much for your clear statement on your  personal
practises .It is clear that you have given this subject much 
thought. An ounce of Practise is better than a ton of theory.
Reducing our Faith to a personal and daily level is what 
is most satisfying to find our way across myriads of situations
we face as we go thru life either here or in any other part of the world.
To help the children during this process and wet their appetite in
such matters is a very important aspect. We have been exposed to it
deeply , when we grew up. It is  a different story growing up here. 
If the children can out of their own desire seek  the best of the 
Western and Eastern Tradition with the help of a sensitive parent and 
 make  an assimilable synthesis to suit their needs , it will be  a great source
comfort for them in later life.Dry and arid practises without
faith  or some understanding will not take one  too far, although even
deep faith is sufficient often. 
Thanks again for sharing your thoughts on this important subject.
