It has always been a propensity of human beings to seek something higher that is not readily available or within their reach and thus has to strive for it. According to the Time, Place and Circumstances everybody tries their level best to expedite a journey to understand the purpose of this very Life, during this journey whatever short or long journey-break one takes could lead to education, career, love, family, asset, nation, war and ultimately the liberation. When most of the modern world tries to seek it outside, often at the cost of harming the environment, it was a completely reverse process during Vedic era. The purpose of Life was to be experienced within by elevating one’s consciousness, with the help of processes like meditation (Dhyana), Tapasya, Yoga and deep study of Śāstra and of course some sort of profession to sustain the life and in complete harmony with the nature.
Trend is towards providing access to the things and information that was never given before to the children of very young age. In ancient time it was never the matter of lack of knowledge or unavailability of so called advanced technology. In contrast, during the Vedic time people were more knowledgeable and had access to more sophisticated technology than possible today. Any ancient temple architecture will support this claim. Back than, the idea was to give the right thing that was needed for the development of a particular child. The need of a child can be identified based on the development of the Five Koshas (sheaths) known as Panchkosha that encloses the original source of energy in every living being. Panchakoshas are discussed in ancient text of Taittiriya Upanishad, which is a part of the Taittiriya Samhita of the Krishna Yajur Veda. Despite the uniqueness of all children, some basic Kosha development necessary for any particular age groups can be identified and groomed. We are exploring this territory to create never before playthings that will at least give a little push in spreading awareness about developing all the Panchkosha.
We believe that based on the exposure to modern or ancient philosophies one endeavors to explore it further, including children. Therefore we would like to serve the right thing at right age (early childhood development) rather than the destructive digital gadgets.
We at Shastra Krida are seriously trying rather learning to serve this priceless Vedic wisdom through the medium of toys.
