"Children are not vessels to be filled, but lamps to be lit"
- Swami Chinmayananda
Balavihar is a program that provides a spiritual and cultural orientation to children of the modern age to propagate the vision of Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda. Weekly classes are conducted following an age appropriate curriculum including Bala Ramayana, Bala Bhagvatam, Hanuman, Symbolism in Hinduism, Sanskrit writing etc. The kids are introduced to the high ideals, morals and values from our rich cultural heritage and our great scriptures with the help of stories, books, crafts, bhajans, shlokas, quizzes, skits, dances, creative games and healthy debates and discussions. Hindi and Bharatanatyam classes are also available for those interested. And whats more - we do all this while making new friends and having loads of fun!!
