Ramraksha

This one is a little bit tedious to get around and is best to teach kids once they are old enough. A beautiful sloka, the Ramraksha as the name suggests, brings strength and keeps you safe from any harm.

You can make morning prayers fun by making different kinds of prashad which the kids can get their hands on only after the pooja. Check out some guilt free sweet recipes here.
