What is Cognitive Development
In simple words, Cognitive Development means how children think, explore and figure things out.

How Bhagavad Gita Can help children develop their Cognitive Skills
Scientific Study with Sanskrit
Scientists have found that reciting Vedic Mantras have profound benefit in increasing the activity of neurons in the brain.
Increased neuron activity, means increased memory of the student, thus learning capacity increases significantly.
By reciting Bhagavad Gita shlokas regularly one develops ability to recollect things very quickly.
Aids Multi directional Thinking process
Thinking is very essential for the toddlers, more they think more will their brain tissues grow, thus aiding their cognitive development. This also makes child creative 🙂
As one reads Gita, one naturally begins to think and see situations from different directions, not only this increases thinking abilities , this simultaneously helps one think in multiple directions.
Enhances Problem solving
During the discussion between Arjuna and Krishna in Bhagavad Gita, Arjuna asks many serious questions to Krishna.
When a child reads these questions naturally he uses his brain to reflect on the questions, and more importantly child learns how to question this helps in the development of mental tissues of the toddlers.
And by reading various answers given by Krishna, one understands how to find solutions to problems that are presented before us.
This makes the toddlers ready to face challenges in life.
Boosts Decision making skills
When toddlers read Bhagavad Gita, they find how Krishna answers to Arjuna's questions with strong reasons, students similarly develop the very same attitude.
Thus they naturally seek to think twice about consequences before doing anything, thus enhancing their decision making capacities
Makes one Inquisitive
Naturally after seeing Arjuna asking so many questions, one imbibes this attitude as well, thus one becomes more and more inquisitive and asks questions for more and more clarification when things are not clear.
Not only one asks questions, but asks them like Arjuna did with respect not with pride to hurt others.
