YYMM Program at Tapovan Pre-Primary & Primary English School by Abel Hernandez and Aleta Macan
In the spring of 2015, Homa Therapy teachers Abel Hernandez and Aleta Macan visited the Tapovan English School to support the YYMM program. The program consists of Yajnya, Hatha Yoga, Mantras and Meditation.
The school is located within the property of Tapovan Homa farm in Maharashtra, India. Tapovan has been home to round-the-clock Om Tryambakam Homa for the last 14 years.–Ed.
Each morning the Tapovan English School starts with a Homa Fire. The children know the Mantras by heart. Afterwards the daily routine starts. This private school has nursery, kindergarten, 1st and 2nd standard.
If we want to better society with loving and caring people, the teachers are good examples for these children. Truthfulness, forgiveness, compassion, Ahimsa (non-violence), fearlessness, etc. are mentioned in the Bhagavad Gita as attributes of the wise. This is the stuff of which a healthy and caring society is made.
Since the school is situated in the Tapovan Homa farm (under the influence of Agnihota and 24-hour Tryambakam Fire) the YYMM program has almost immediately shown wonderful results in teachers and students. Children are disciplined with love and learn to be happy.
Manager of Tapovan Pre-Primary & Primary English Medium School
“Our school has 127 students at the moment.
“I have experienced the YYMM children’s program. It has a good concept that should be implemented in the schools. The practice of Yoga is very helpful for any student. With this program a change can be brought about in the children. In just a few days after we implemented this Yoga-Yajnya-Mantra-Meditation program, we could see the changes in the students.
“They were more active and enthusiastic, more focused on their studies and day-to-day activities. We will continue the program on a daily basis, also after the vacations in June.”
Teacher at Tapovan School
“I have 30 to 35 students from age 6 to 7. We have seen many changes in the students since we have started the YYMM (Yoga-Yajnya-Mantra-Meditation) classes with the children.
“Their concentration has increased. They are focusing on the studies and do their homework regularly. In the classroom, they were mischievous and did not listen; that has changed now. They do listen.
“Before, the children hesitated to answer when I asked questions. Now the students are encouraged to participate and they give the answers regularly. Even students who were not participating are raising their hands and answer questions now. They have full confidence. There is a lot of difference.”
Tapovan School Principal
“With this YYMM Homa children’s program, we have experienced much difference. The children are concentrating now on their tasks and there are fewer disturbances.
“I also see a lot of difference in the teachers and their way of communicating with the children. In fact, the children are happy with the teachers and the teachers are happy with how the children behave.”
