Balavihar Classes and Curriculum

Introduction: Just as physics, biology, and other sciences are not the exclusive property of any one country, or of people in a particular era or age, but are universally applicable, irrespective of time and age; similarly the science of living, as pronounced by the Rishis in Vedanta, visualizes a plan of life to suit all people, at all times, everywhere. An innovative way to jumpstart a value based education program has been created for our children. It is a structured, age appropriate program which runs from KG to 12th grade. It provides twelve well developed teachers handbooks. All the books have 40 lessons (estimated one per week) and each lesson runs for 60 minutes. The multidimensional approach of looking at scriptures as they apply to our daily lives makes spirituality more relevant for children. We want our children to lead a truly happy, peaceful, and successful life.

Session 1 Classes are from 10:00am to 11:30am.
