Bala Vihar

Don’t just invest on the child, also invest in the child. ‘Investment on’ gives outer prosperity. ‘Investment in’ ensures inner unfoldment and lasting prosperity. True education is ‘investment on’ the child complemented with ‘investment in’ the child.

Bala Vihar is a group of children, meeting once a week, at a set venue, for 60-90 minutes, for the sole purpose of learning our precious culture, spiritual wisdom, and related values through stories, games, quizzes, crafts, bhajans, hymns, shlokas, skits, dances, etc.
Bala Vihar inculcates the values of Sanatana Dharma, as taught in our scriptures-Shrimad Bhagavad Geeta, Upanishads, Epics and Puranas-helping us to grow into responsible citizens of tomorrow.
Balavihar classes for various age groups are conducted by trained sevaks and sevikas. These voluntary dedicated workers impart to children, the glory of our rich culture, aiming at character formation and reverence for our ancient heritage. Additional activities that help to reinforce the vision of balvihar include cultural shows, Geeta chanting competition, and balvihar residential or day camps.
