Radhanath Swami on Children of God

The goal in human life is to be in God consciousness, to awaken one's natural devotion to the Lord. In the holy scriptures it is described that if a human dies without realizing God, he is a miserly person who has completely wasted his life. So it is the parents' first and foremost responsibility to try to create an environment that will induce the child to want to know and love God, and at the same time teach wonderful skills that they can use in God consciousness throughout their life. That is the singular exclusive reason for education - to give children tools that they can use in God’s service and express their love throughout their life. So all parents or future parents should take this very seriously. It is your first and foremost responsibility to your children to attract them to God by your personal example, by your words and by what you emphasize in their life. Raising our children should be in such a way that they are naturally attracted to God. Then even little austerities, with God in the center, is fun for children. We should create an environment where children find the greatest happiness in their life in those activities or subject matters that relate to God.
