Why guided meditation in the classroom 
Using these meditations with children is not thesame as reading stories to them. Reading is passive.Children do understand and become involved in what you are reading, but 
in guided meditation 
they become actively involved 
. Reading a story andreading a meditation are different functions. Read-ing stories to children is a must because it helpsthe child to learn and spell, but 
meditation enables the mind to become free 
to explore.
Each meditation has its own distinctive theme andgives children the opportunity to experience it. They feel the love of the Buddha; radiate loving-kindness; climb mountains; collect seashells; be-come a bird; feel the touch of the wind on their face; and go to the moon. There are so many things they can do, and all these things must  bring their imagination to the fore. Most impor-tantly, they learn to appreciate the Dhamma more.In other words, they participate in the meditationand
learn to be in touch with the source of love 
strength and wisdom inside themselves.
